I THINK IT LOOKS VERY MUCH LIKE IT

Angelina Petroleum I love,
And have for a very long time
Tho' I never had courage to tell her
So I wrote down my feelings in rhyme
I've to meet her tonight in the park,
And while the iron's hot I will strike it
She never acknowledged she loved me,
But I think it looks very much like it
Yes, I think it looks very much like it.

Her hair falls in curls down her back
And when at me she looks with her eyes
In that sort of way you all know
Then drops them again, and then sighs
Her cheek looks so beautifully plump
That sometimes I think I could bite it
But that I'm afraid she'd object to
At least I don't think she'd much like it
Yes, at least I don't think she'd much like it.

One night I went to her house
Intending to take her a walk
When I saw Angelina with a stranger
Having a nice little talk
I was in such a rage at the time
With my cane I thought I should strike him
She afterwards said 'twas her brother
But I told her she wasn't much like him
Yes, I told her she wasn't much like him.

I seriously spoke to her after
For at that time I certainly thought
If she didn't quite know what was right
I said that she ought to be taught
She said she ne'er meant to deceive me
If aught was wrong she would right it
I don't say she tried to humbug me
But I think it looked very much like it
Yes, I think it looked very much like it.

One thing about her I don't like
That is she often will smoke
And when I speak to her about it
She says it is done for a joke
From my case last night she took a weed
And she knew the right way, too, to light it
I don't say she's given to smoking
But I think it looks very much like it
Yes, I think it looks very much like it.

By Jove tho' I must go, at once
Or I'm certain that I shall be late
For if I'm not there to my time
Angelina will be in such a state
For the kindness which you've shewn me
I'll do my utmost to requite it
I don't say you're going to applaud
But I think it looks very much like it
Yes, I think it looks very much like it.
