Love Is Teasing
- Oh love is teasing when love is pleasing,
And love is a treasure when first it’s new.
But as it grows older then love grows colder
And fades away like the morning dew.
- I left my father, I left my mother
I left my sisters and brothers too
I left my friends and my kind relations,
I left them all for the love of you.
- Oh turn around love, your wheel of fortune.
Oh turn around love and smile on me.
For surely there must be a place of torment.
For that young girl who deceived me.
- So lads, beware of your false true lovers,
And never mind what the young girls say.
They're like the stars on a summers morning;
You think they’re near but they’re far away.
