No. 22 - Song - Jo - "I must propose to you."

MIDI File

Jo: I've been waiting for some sort of sign
That you want this little heart of mine;
Daily weekly, humbly, meekly,
I've been waiting,-- won't you answer?
Love is blind, but I can plainly see
You are really quite in love with me.
I love you, dear,
That you know, dear,
Won't you say one word?
You're fond of me, I know,
And I'm fond of you;
What is the only thing for us two to do?
If you do not propose what you mean to do,
I must propose to you.
You're fond of me, I know,
And I'm fond of you;
What is the only thing for us two to do?
If you do not propose what you mean to do,
I must propose to you.

Don't you think you're just the least unkind,
Though I beg you fondly, you don't mind.
Sweetly, gently, innocently,
I implore you, don't ignore me;
Won't you, please, find me an answer soon?
Shall it be the end of May, or June?
Must you grieve me, won't you leave me
Time to order things!
You're fond of me, I know,
And I'm fond of you;
What is the only thing for us two to do?
If you do not propose what you mean to do,
I must propose to you.
You're fond of me, I know,
And I'm fond of you;
What is the only thing for us two to do?
If you do not propose what you mean to do,
I must propose to you.
