Lyrics:
[Gower]
Little girl, you are safe with me:
I can protect what's mine;
I am a sturdy maple tree
And you're my clinging vine!

[Marge]
Woods are just full of maple trees,
Cedar and oak and pine;
Let me look them over, please,
And then I'll let you know
If you have a show.
After I have looked around
The world for a mate,
Then, perhaps, I might fall back on you!
When I am convinced
That there is no better fate,
Then I might decide that you will do.

[Gower]
I am just an average lad,
Though no gift to womanhood,
Some girls say I'm not so bad!

[Marge]
Others say you're not so good!
But if you are patient, dear,
And willing to wait,
There's a chance I might fall back on you!

[Gower And Marge]
After I/you have looked around
The world for a mate
Then, perhaps, I/you might fall back on you/me!
When I/you are convinced
That there is no better fate,
Then I/you might decide that you/I will do!

[Gower]
I am just an average lad,
Though no gift to womanhood,
Some girls say I'm not so bad!

[Marge]
Others say you're not so good!

[Gower And Marge]
But if you are/I am patient, dear,
And willing to wait,
There's a chance I/you might fall back on you/me!
(Two groups of GIRLS dance on)

[Group 1]

[To Gower]
After she has looked around
The world for a mate
Then, perhaps, she might fall back on you!
When she is convinced
That there is no better fate
Then she might decide that you will do!

[Group 2]

[To Marge]
He is just an average lad,
Though no gift to womanhood,
Some girls say he's not so bad,
Others say he's not so good!

[All Girls]

[To Gower]
But if you are patient, dear,
And willing to wait
There's a chance she might fall back on you!
[Dance Sequence]
