IN THE TWI-TWI-TWILIGHT
 
div
 
When a girl loves a boy, there's no time they enjoy
Like the twi-twi-light
And the hour of the day for which all of them pray
Is the twi-twi-light
There's a boy at the corner of every street
And the girl as she joins him is looking so neat
That he never once thinks of the size of her feet
In the twi-twi-light

Chorus: In the twi-twi-twi-light
Out in the beautiful twilight
They all go out for a walk, walk, walk
A quiet spoon and a talk, talk, talk
That's the time they long for just before the night
And many a grand little wedding is planned
In the twi-twi-light.


To the world you will find they are deaf, dumb and blind
In the twi-twi-light
Out for hours they'll remain, tho' it's pouring with rain
In the twi-twi-light
Or they'll make for a corner in one of the parks
So shady that no one their presence remarks
But the birds up above them can tell of their larks
In the twi-twi-light.

Chorus:

It's like reading a book, there's a sweet little nook
In the twi-twi-light
Where two lovers are found with the leaves all around
In the twi-twi-light
He declares that the wedding will be very soon
And the girlie with joy almost ready to swoon
When the cry of 'All out' puts an end to their spoon
In the twi-twi-light.

Chorus:

Tho' some of you appear very shocked when you hear
Of the twi-twi-light
You can tell me, I'm sure, all I tell you and more
Of the twi-twi-light
Take that loving young pair sitting there so sublime
You think from their looks what I'd said was a crime
But I saw them last night having Oh such a time
In the twi-twi-light.

Chorus: In the twi-twi-twi-light
Out in the beautiful twilight
They all go out for a walk, walk, walk
A quiet spoon and a talk, talk, talk
That's the time they long for just before the night
And we're here, I believe, because Adam met Eve
In the twi-twi-light.
