American Old Time Song Lyrics: 50 What Wont We Do For Love
Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 50
What Won't We Do for Love?
Copyright, 1895, by Spaulding & Gray.
Words and Music by Geo. M. Cohan.
Ev'ry one is in love, it seems, ev'ry one has a beau;
Over ev'rything love it beams, no matter where you go.
Some make love to a sweetheart gay, some to the stare above;
But here and there, and ev'ry where, it's love, love, love.
The turtle dove will coo for love, the pussy cat mew, mew for love;
The gentle fawn will love from morn till stars shine from above;
The little dog will hark for love, the country boy will spark for love;
It's really so-I'd like to know what won't we do for love?
Love's first age is the girl and boy, soon to manhood he grows;
She, the maiden, is still his joy, his love is true, she knows.
Fifty years since their wedding day's passed, and their thinking of
Their childhood, when, since then they've been in love, love, love.- Chorus.
