Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 29
LIKE AND LOVE.
Copyright, 1890, by Willis Woodward & Co.
Written and Composed by Joseph Tabrar.
I Some girls think they're deep in love, directly they behold a man
I Swear oy all the stars above he's as good as gold or better,
They make up their minds to act on a matrimonial plan,
Ail arrangements made intact, but it is as I've been told:
Liking is all very well, love is a terrible thing,
Billing and cooing is what you are doing, according to how you move;
I Liking's a thing that is often done, courting is all very well for fun,
But MM you're in real there's a very great deal of diff'rence 'tween like and love.
Some girls meet a beau sublime, with a heart as true as steel,
Proves in everlasting time throughout life we'll ne'er forget her;
Some make vows by all above, but their vows are not in real,
Make out that their like is love-all their love is love for gold.-Chorus.
Love's a power sent from above, like is quite a diff'rent thing,
Cupid has the power to move and enchain hearts with love's fetter;
Hand in hand and heart-to-heart vows were pledged in days of old;
Those who've swore to never part, as a rule, are bought for gold.-Chorus.
