[Verse]

ROSA. I know that you men are deceivers,
Us poor girls you lure and betray,
of shares for our love you are weavers,
You think breaking hearts only play,
MARQUIS. That's true, but I'm not like the rest dear,

ROSA. No!

[Refrain]

Come on over here!

Get a welcome hearty,
Don't be bashful, dear,
MARQUIS. Oh! I'm not feeling "bash!"
ROSA. You need to have no fear;
MARQUIS. I'll whisper words of 'pash,'
(together:)
ROSA. gentle stranger
MARQUIS. lovely stranger
ROSA. I'm in danger
MARQUIS. There's no danger
BOTH. While you're over here!
