Abstract

Was it not at one? Tell me was it two?
Was it at one or two?
To another you vow'd homage true,
Think what you have done.
Think what you have done.
Well, love, I do.
Yet oh there's nothing dear,
Nothing to tell or hear,
But that this heart of mine, dear,
Beats ever thine.
Is now your conscience clear?
Have I no guile to fear?
Oh no there's nothing dear,
Nothing to tell or hear.
And does that heart of thine, dear
Beat truly mine?
But that this heart of mine, dear
Beats ever thine.

Was it not at two?
Tell me was it three?
Was it at two or three?
How could you be so false to me?
Think on what you do!
Think on what you do!
Stay, let me see;
Oh. no! there's nothing dear,
Nothing to think or fear,
Freely this hear of mine, dear,
Beats ever thine.
Nay tell me truly, dear,
Have I no harm to fear?
And does that heart of thine, dear;
Beat truly mine?

Was it not at three?
Tell me was it four?
Was it at three or four
Ah, I am sure, say no more
Better silent be! Better silent be!
Spare I implore!
Oh. no! there's nothing dear,
Nothing to think or fear,
Freely this hear of mine, dear,
Beats ever thine.

Charles! deem me not severe,
Tho' I begin to fear.
Trust me, this heart of mine, dear,
Beats ever thine!
Oh. no! there's nothing dear,
Nothing to think or fear,
Freely this hear of mine, dear,
Beats ever thine.
