The Damsel That I Longed For Never Came.

I went out for an evening's walk, to tell the truth I was a gawk,
I was captured by a damsel, yes, so fair;
With a captivating smile I at once admired her style,
Her shape, her figure, and her golden hair.
She said she lived quite far, so we both took a car,
At the doorway I stood two hours in the rain;
She said to me she might meet me to-morrow night,
But the damsel that I longed for never came.

Chorus.
Was she giving me the shake, or a hint for me to take?
Had I waited on that corner, yes, in vain?
She said to me she might meet me to-morrow night,
But that damsel that I longed for never came.

Many months have gone, they say, from her house she's moved away,
I gave up hopes of finding her again;
So one day upon the street, to my surprise, who should I meet?
She clasped my hand and said she's not to blame.
Once more I took her home in a carriage all alone,
I embraced her and she said she was ashamed;
The question was to be, if she would marry me,
But that answer from her papa never came.

Chorus.
Was it then her gray-haired mother, her sister, or a lover,
That made me wait those many years in vain?
The question was to be, if she would marry me.
But that answer from her papa never came.
