AND THE FINISH WAS, SHE DID!

She was a maid who was very, very staid
So different to the youth beside her
They sat in the gloom of a little drawing room
And with long loving looks he eyed her
Said he,'Ah me, place your little hand in mine
I do love you, you are really divine
So give me that little hand with which to play'
But she didn't want to give herself away,
She said,

Chorus: 'I don't think I would, and I'm not sure that I should
For it isn't quite just the thing that's right
So I would not if I could, could, could
If you think it's fun, I don't
And my answer is I won't
For I know I can't
And I'm sure I shan't'
And the finish was, she did!


Still with the boy, she was yet so very coy
Said he, 'I would that you were mine dear.
I would like to hold you to me but you're so cold
Will you take a little glass of wine, dear?'
She stared quite scared, as the wine he went to pass
A look she took as it bubbled in the glass
He murmured, 'Have this one with me my own sweet dove
It will fill your heart with little thoughts of love.'
She said,

Chorus: 'I don't think I would, and I'm not sure that I should
For it isn't quite just the thing that's right
So I would not if I could, could, could
If you think it's fun, I don't
And my answer is I won't
For I know I can't
And I'm sure I shan't'
And the finish was, she did!
