SHE WAS HIGH, I WAS LOW
 
div
 

She was high and I was low,
Vain for reasons now to search,
All I care, all I know,
I was Chapel, she was Church,
Turtle-dove like we would 'coo'
On occasions we could bill
She was loving I was true,
And we might have been so still (but)

Chorus: She was high and I was low,
Vain for reasons now to search,
All I care, all I know,
I was Chapel, she was Church.

All entreaties were in vain
Her convictions were so strong,
She said 'love, it gives me pain
But I'm right and you are wrong,
Just perform this simple task
Take that hat from off your head,
Surely 'tis not much I ask,
Wear a low crowned one instead.'

Chorus: If you wish to ask me why,
If a reason you would know,
Learn this fact none can deny
Low hat's high and high hat's low!
