The lovers come and go at my bidding
A nerve-wracking thrill all this to and fro
Hello! goodbye! Oh hi! Good morning
Another adieu, now let me lie low
Yet the restless soul seeks inspiration
And takes up with one man, then another
Unschooled and without discrimination
Til I find it’s me who needs a tutor.
Almost everywhere you look you will see
Lovers, couples, pairs in happy embrace
In contrast to the one: solitary
Singly and cautiously the future face
Life’s promise awaiting discovery
Open your heart and take delivery.
