Altho' a timid little maid,
Of young men I am not afraid,
But I am scared to tell the truth
Of one sweet dapper, little youth,
He's courted me for many a day,
My heart be almost stole away,
Until one night it came to this,
He stole from me a little kiss. [Repeat last 2 lines]

Now why did he do that? Oh! wasn't it a shame?
'Twas done so suddenly, I could not be to blame;
I know that love's a game we all are playing at,
But still I wonder, just the same, why did he do that?

He's often told me that my eyes
Are full of light that never dies;
He says they're bright as stars above,
And only shine with purest love;
He says so sweet a girl as I
Should not let chances quite go by,
And, oh, so strange that it should be,
He stole another kiss from me. [Repeat last 2 lines.]- Cho.

One night beneath the golden moon
He sang love's old delicious tune;
He said to me that lovers' sighs
Proclaim a love that never dies;
He asked me if his heart I'd wed,
And tho' I don't know what I said,
Before I really knew a thing,
He on my finger placed a ring. [Repeat last 2 lines.] -Cho.
