Give me a boat That can carry two, And both shall row, My love and I. A ship there is, She sails the sea, She's loaded deep, As deep can be. But not so deep As the love I'm in; I know not how I sink or swim. I leaned my back Against an oak, Knowing it was A trusty tree. At first it bent, But never broke; Thus did my love Prove true to me. Oh, love is handsome, Love is fine, Gay as a jewel When first it's new; And love grows old, And ever bold, And shines as bright As morning dew.
