A Prince am I in the realm of the Czar
o'er the snow have I came from afar,
Swift as time was the speed of my sleigh,
Crushing those who would stand in my way,
Dashing on in my glittering ship,
nearer to you with each crack o' the whip!
Ah! Prince you cracked the whip the horses flew
And brought me nearer you,
But, now tis I who holds the whip,
and you are jumping through!
Wealth have I 'tis the greatest on earth,
there are none who can value its worth
Jewels rare in a Palace of Gold
Gems of Art that an Empress might hold
All is yours for your frame or success,
All of it's yours for the slightest caress.
Love is a something that cannot be bought
Love that is really so, tender and true
Freely I give you all of me
In return I ask of you, to
Give me all your love, dear,
or else give me none,
Give me ev'ry kiss, dear,
Or not one.
Give me ev'ry thought dear,
No matter how small,
Give me all of tou,
Or give me none at all,
