Fifi.-When we are marriedHarry.-Why. what will you do?
Fifi.-I'll be as sweet as I can to you,
I will be tender and I will be true
When I am married, sweetheart, to you!
Harry.-Love Is not all, dear, that poets may say.
Often it lasts but a year and a day;
Often the day, love, without any year,
Love Is not all it's crack'd up to be. dear!
Fifi.-I only know, love, what our love will be;
I will love you, love, and you will love me,
Not for a year, love, and not for a day;
I will love you, love, forever and aye!
Harry.-When we are married, why what will you do?
Fifi.-I'll be as sweet as I can be to you!
I will be tender and I will be true,
When I am married, sweetheart, to you.
