I weave with brightly colored strings

To keep my mind off other things

So, ladies, let your fingers

dance

And keep your hands out of romance

 

Lovely witches

Let the stitches

Keep your fingers under

control

Cut the thread, but leave

The whole heart whole

 

Merrry maids can sew and sleep

Wives can only

sew and weep

Falling in love with love

Is falling for make-believe

Falling in love with love

Is

playing the fool

 

Caring too much is juvenile fancy

Learning to trust is just

For children in school

I

fell in love with love one night

When the moon was full

I was unwise with eyes

Unable to see

 

I fell

in love with love

With love everlasting

But love fell out with me
