Love is Teasing

Love is Teasing

 Cho:      Love is a teasing and love is pleasing

And love is a treasure when first it's new

But as it grows older then love grows colder

And fades away like the morning dew

 I left my Father, I left my Mother
 I left my sisters & brothers too
 I left my friends and my kind relations
 I left them all for to go with you.

 Oh turn around love, your wheel of fortune
 Oh turn around love and smile on me
 For surely there must be a place of torment
 for that young girl who deceiv-ed me

Oh lads beware of your false true lovers
 and never mind what the young girls say
 They're like the stars on a summer's morning
 you think they're near but they're far away.
