What is a youth?

Impetuous fire.

What is a maid?

Ice and desire.

The world wags on

A rose will bloom,

it then will fade

So dies the youth.

So dies the fairest maid.

Comes a time when one sweet smile

Has its season for awhile

Then Love’s in love with me

Some may think only to mar-ry.

Others will tease and tar-ry.

Mine is the very best par-ry,

Cupid he rules us all.

Caper the caper; sing me the song

Death will come soon to hush us along

Sweeter than honey and bitter as gall,

Love is a task and it never will pall.

Sweeter than honey and bitter as gall,

Cupid he rules us all.

A rose will bloom,

it then will fade

So dies the youth.

So dies the fairest maid.
