Strephon.
If we’re weak enough to tarry
Ere we marry,
You and I,
Of the feeling I inspire
You may tire
By-and-bye.
For peers with flowing coffers
Press their offers –
That is why
I am sure we should not tarry
Ere we marry,
You and I!
Phyllis.
If we’re weak enough to tarry
Ere we marry,
You and I,
With a more attractive maiden,
Jewel-laden,
You may fly.
If by chance we should be parted,
Broken-hearted
I should die –
So I think we will not tarry
Ere we marry,
You and I.
Strephon (Michael Rayner) & Phyllis (Linda Anne Hutchison) 1970s
Phyllis. Strephon.
Ah!  
Ah! Ah!
If we’re weak enough to tarry If we’re weak enough to tarry

Ere we marry,
You and I,

Ere we marry,
You and I,
With a more attractive maiden,
Jewel-laden,
You may fly.
Of the feeling I inspire
You may tire,
By-and-bye,
You and I Of the feeling I inspire
You may tire,
By-and-bye,
If we’re weak enough to tarry
Ere we marry,
You and I,
If we’re weak enough to tarry
Ere we marry,
You and I,
With a more attractive maiden,
Jewel-laden,
You may fly.
Of the feeling I inspire
You may tire,
By-and-bye,
So I think we will not tarry
Ere we marry,
You and I,
You and I,
You and I.
So I think we will not tarry
Ere we marry,
You and I,
You and I,
You and I.
