Sung in the comic opera of " Blllee Taylor."

Do you know why the rabbits are caught in the snares,
Or the tabby cats shot on the tiles?
Why the tigers and lions creep out from their lairs,
Why an ostrich will travel for miles?
Do you know why a sane man will whimper or cry,
And weep o'er a ribbon or glove?
Why a cook will put sugar for salt in a pie,
Do you know? well, I'll tell you, it's love, it's love!

Lovel love! love! the first-born of creation!
Love! love! love! the god of ev'ry nation!
Lovel love! love! in each and ev'ry station!
The ruler of the universe is love! love! love!

Do you know why a plain girl will think herself fair,
Or a clever man wisdom refuse?
Do you know why a dwarf rises yards in the air,
And a giant sinks into his shoes?
Doyou know why a brave man takes refuge in flight,
While a coward no danger can move?
Why night becomes day, and why day becomes night.
Do you know? well, I'll tell you, it's love, it's love!
Love! love! love! the first-born, &c.
