Doris was a village maiden, little did she know,
Nave the sentence I had taught her, "Oh, I love you so!"
Every lad for miles around willingly would have been bound
To the sweetheart I had found, and proud to be her beau.

Doris, Doris! O how I love thee! see me at thy feet;
Doris, Doris! could you but love me, life would be complete,
Doris, Doris! stars bright above thee, hear my pleading, too.
Why then tarry? Come, let us marry-dearest Doris, do!

Time went on, and simple Doris learned a thing or two,
Day by day I found my loved one harder still to woo;
Other suitors oft were seen by her side, where I had been.
Flirting with my little queen, I heard them pleading, too.- Refrain.

Fortune smiled upon her father in the marts of trade;
By a lucky speculation he a million made;
Taking from his bank account gold and bonds in large amount,
Bought for her a foreign count, and scorned me while I prayed.-Refrain.
