Give Me Your Love And I’ll Give You Mine

print

Just at the close of a bright summer day
Just as the twilight had faded away
Soft on the breeze like the coo of a dove
Someone was singing an old song of love

   Tell me you love me and say you’ll be true
   I love nobody in this world but you
   Your heart and my heart in love will entwine
   Give me your love and I’ll give you mine

Come along with me to the quiet shady nook
Where flowers bloom at the side of the brook
Nature is sleeping, the birds are at rest
I’ll place a wild rose on your beautiful breast

I’ve something to ask you while you’re by my side
A question of love, of groom and of bride
And if you refuse me my heart it will pine
Give me your love and I’ll give you mine
