Fearfully and Wonderfully Made
Written and sung by Sam Devere.

Deception just now is the rule all around,
It's practiced in all shades of life;
Just mind what I say, and be careful, my friends,
When the time comes to pick out a wife;
Her yes may be loving, her smile may be sweet,
When you approach her she's timid and afraid;
Be careful, look well before making the leap,
You don't know how the dear girl is made.

In the good days of old, in our grandmothers' time,
Girls didn't enamel or paint;
Didn't wear palpitators their bosoms to swell,
Didn't lace themselves up till they'd faint;
Didn't wear patent calves, or use "Bloom of Youth,"
A ad the rose in their cheeks didn't fade-
You must know a girl well now before you get stuck,
For she's fearfully and wonderfully made.

Girls long ago didn't pencil their brows,
Use lotions to make the skin fair;
The girls long ago combed the hair on their heads,
Now it's combed on the back of a chair.
I've got more to tell when I see you alone,
I lave said too much here I'm afraid;
But before you get married examine them well,
For they're fearfully and wonderfully made.
