When I think upon the maidens Whom I swore to love for aye, Cynthia, Doris and her cousin, There are still another dozen Debts my heart can never pay. Do they scorn me now I wonder, Did they take it as a game? Flora, Olive and the others, How I hated all their brothers! Fickle Cupid you're to blame! Years have passed and yet I'm single, Torn and undecided still, Clara, Mabel, what a vision! I can't come to a decision, And I hope I never will!
