X:1 T:What Is A Youth C:Trad Z:Webmaster K: W:1 W:What is a youth? Impetuous fire. W:What is a maid? Ice and desire. W:The world wags on. W:A rose will bloom, it then will fade, W:So does a youth, so does the fairest maid. W: W:2 W:Comes a time when one sweet smile, W:Has its season for a while, W:Then love's in love with me. W: W:3 W:Some may think only to marry, W:Others will tease and tarry, W:Mine is the very best parry, W:Cupid he rules us all. W: W:4 W:Caper the caper, sing me the song, W:Death will come soon to hush us along W:Sweeter than honey and bitter as gall, W:Love is a pastime that never will fall, W: W:5 W:Sweeter than honey and bitter as gall, W:Cupid he rules us all. W:A rose will bloom, it then will fade, W:So does a youth, so does the fairest maid. % % % % %
