ANYWHERE DARK WILL DO

Lovers who sigh, oh! tell me why
You always pine for country rambles?
It isn't fair, love making there
Cupid never dressed for thistles or for brambles.
Poppies blush red for your hopes and fears
Even the corn in the field has ears,
So why sit and spoon like the Babes in the Wood,
The parlour, at twilight, is just as good.

Chorus: Anywhere dark will do for courting
Anywhere dark will do
But where night birds twitter, twitter
Glow worms shine on you
Brown owls espy you, sadly eye you
Saying 'Twit, to woo.'
But for the bliss of a woman's kiss
Anywhere dark will do.

Why do you squeeze under the trees
Bats have such lovely ears for listening
Wrapped in yourselves, you see no elves
Dancing around you with their fireflies all a-glistening.
Her love-lit eyes will light up the gloom
Be it in mansion or top back room
On land or on ocean or up in the air
If you're there, and she's there, you don't care where

Chorus: Anywhere dark will do for courting
Anywhere dark will do
But where night birds twitter, twitter
Glow worms shine on you
Brown owls espy you, sadly eye you
Saying 'Twit, to woo.'
But for the bliss of a woman's kiss
Anywhere dark will do.
