No. 14 - Song - Edna - "That's a very diff'rent thing."

MIDI File

Edna: [When I think of all the tales you've told me,
When I think of all the vows I've heard,
I've been quite mistaken,
All my hopes are shaken,
From today I shan't believe one word!
If you're just in fun,
That kind of thing's been overdone,
All those compliments are perfectly bewildering;
For when you call me "dear,"
Of course, that's always nice to hear,
But do you really love me?
'Cause that's a very diff'rent thing!

When you've said "you could not live without me;"
When a tear has come into your eye;
I'd a simple notion,
That was true devotion,
I responded to each love-lorn cry!
If you're just in fun,
That kind of thing's been overdone,
All those compliments are perfectly bewildering;
So when my hand you press,
Is that affection, more or less,
Or is that force of habit?
'Cause that's a very diff'rent thing!
Ah!
That's a very diff'rent thing!
