There are many love words new;
Are there any that will do for you?
What expression could I take
In my confession that I want to make?
Lovey Dove, cuddle up,
Dovey dove, huddle up near me,
Honey Lamb, I’m for you, ‘deed I am,
You’re my precious, precious, you’re just love complete;
I adore you, for you’re so sweetie, sweet.
Tootsie Dear, rest up near,
Wootsie Dear, nest up near,
Kiss me! If I go,
If I should whisper low, say you would miss me!
From my heels to head
I’ll tell you, I am dead in love.
Ev’ry day, more and more,
I adore Lovey Dove! Dove!
Loving sweethearts always look
For sweet phrases in Dan Cupid’s book.
Though these love words are not new,
These love words,
Dearie, all apply to you.
