American Old Time Song Lyrics: 05 I'll Tell Nobody
Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 5
I'LL TELL NOBODY.
Oh, I am in love, but I won't tell with who,
For I know very well what the fair one would do,
They'd chatter and flatter, and make themselves fine,
So poor little some one would have a sad time.
So I'll tell nobody, I'll tell nobody,
Nobody, nobody, nobody, no!
If I tell it to one, she will tell it to two,
And the next cup of tea they would plot what to do;
And as men have no constancy in their own minds,
He'd seek a new face And leave someone behind.-Chorus.
But this much I'll tell you, he's not very tall,
And lest you should guess him. he's not very small;
I met him last night, and he pulled off my glove,
So I think you may guess who is somebody's love.-Chorus..
But when I am sure that his heart's all my own,
That he loves me sincerely, and never will roam,
Oh, then I'll defy all their jeers and (aunts,
For, plainly 'twill show what each of them wants.-Chorus.
