Into the center
Of my heart you enter;
Ah!  fair tormentor,
Tell me you'll be mine.
I'll spend my treasure
On you without measure;
Your whims my pleasure-
How can you decline?

Curb your rare devotion,
Lachrymose emotion,
Or you'll start an ocean
Made of tearful brine.

What hidden joys we'll unravel!
There will be no gravel
On the roads we travel
When our souls entwine.

Refrain 1

Love, let us go flying
On the wings of romance.
Why be so denying?
Give your true love a chance.
Though women keep sighing,
At no other I'll glance.
Love is blind,
But we will find
Paradise on the wings of romance.

Refrain 2

Sir, I would go flying
On the wings of romance.
Sir, I'm not denying
My heart's longing to dance.
I've dreamed of a dream home
Where no sorrow would chance-
Just for two,
But not with you-
You will not do for wings of romance.
