I love you
 
For your dainty cheeks
 
Always dampened
 
By the sea spray
 
What's the reason for
Rushing towards me
You've seen for yourself
That you're a flower already plucked
 
 
Freely given
From head to toe
Why
The hurry to possess
 
 
I told you before
Of your dainty cheeks
I'll tell you again
I love you
