COME IN AND SHUT THE DOOR

Oh! do not stand so long outside,
Why need you be so shy?
The people's ears are open, John,
As they are passing by;
You cannot tell what they may think,
They've said strange things before;
And if you wish to talk a while,
Come in and shut the door!
Come in. come in, come in. come in, come in,
Come in, come in and shut the door!

Nay. do not say: "No, thank you, Jane,''
With such a bashful smile;
You said, when ladies whispered: No!
They meant: Yes! all the while;
My father, too, will welcome you,
I told you so before;
It don't look well to stand out here,
Come in and shut the door!
Come in, come in, come in, come in, come in,
Come in, come in and shut the door!

You say, I did not answer you,
To what you said last night;
I heard your question in the dark,
Thought of it in the light;
And now my lips shall utter,
What my heart has said before----
Yes, dearest, I -- but, wait a while,
Come in and shut the door!
Come in, come in, come in, come in, come in,
Come in. come in and shut the door!
