No. 8 - Duet - Guy and Winifred

MIDI File

Guy: Of all the girls I've ever seen
In all the climes I've roved,
Believe me, dearest, you're the Queen,
The only one I loved.
Winifred: It may be true, though I've been told
That's what men always say,
In fairy tales of suitors bold
Who love — and ride away.
But I think I'd break my heart
If we ever had to part,
And there's nothing you can ask I wouldn't do.
Guy: No, it isn't fair to chaff
For I vow, though you may laugh,
That I mean them ev'ry word I say to you.
Both: Oh, I think I'd break my heart
If we ever had to part,
And there's nothing you can ask I wouldn't do.
For I love but you alone
And I want you for my own,
'Cos there's no one in the world like you.
   
Winifred: I wonder if there'll come a day
When you will half regret
Those whispered words that lovers say
But husbands may forget.
Guy: How shall I make you understand
That I'd lay down my life
To clasp in mine your little hand
And claim your for my wife,
Oh, I think I'd break my heart
If we ever had to part,
And there's nothing you can ask I wouldn't do.
Winifred: Oh, it wasn't fair to chaff
And I didn't mean to laugh,
For I know that ev'ry word you said was true.
Both: Oh, I think I'd break my heart
If we ever had to part,
And there's nothing you can ask I wouldn't do.
For I love but you alone
And I want you for my own,
'Cos there's no one in the world like you.
