A Gentleman and a Lady

– If you were mine, I would be true
I’d never ask you to set me free
Oh I would always be there for you
I would be gentle as man could be

– That’s very nice, I bet you would
But that’s not the cure for my fever
The question is: You’ve got the wood?
The hard long wood for my beaver?

– Oh yes, my lady, I’ve got the cure
My wood is hard like an old tree
My dear lady, you can be sure
Your beaver will aye get what it needs

– If that’s the case I’m willing to talk
About your feelings towards me
I think you should walk me home
I’ll make you a nice cup of tea
