What Would Ducky Do if Lovey Died?
Copyright, 1896, by U. W. Petrie.
Words by Edw. K. Bender. Music by H. W. Petrie.

Down a lane one moonlight evening, fancy free I chanced to roam,
Happened to go by a cottage, where two lovers sat alone.
As I passed a thought had struck me, in the shadows I will lie,
Just to watch their silly doings, when they thought no one was nigh.
There I lay, and soon I saw him from her lips take one sweet kiss,
Then she threw her blue eyes upward, and she spoke some words like this:

"Tell me, what would ducky do if lovey would go died?"
And ducky, like a great big fool, to lovey then replied:
"If lovey should go died, and leave poor ducky here to rue.
Then ducky, like poor lovey dove, would want to go died, too."

Still I lingered in the shadows, laughing till my sides did ache,
So absurd the scene was, surely, that I thought my heart would break.
Presently they rose And started toward a stream that ran close by,
In a boat they soon were sailing, 'neath the starry moonlight sky.
Then like turtle doves they started cooing, wooing, hugging more,
Love was lord of all that moment, when she spoke the same words o'er.- Ref
