“To every lovely lady bright, I wish a gallant faithful knight;
To every faithful lover, too, I wish a trusting lady true."
— Sir Walter Scott
"A book of verses underneath the bough,
A jug of wine, a loaf of bread, and thou."
"A mighty pain to love it is,
And 'tis a pain that pain to miss;
But, of all pains, the greatest pain,
Is to love, but love in vain."
“May we have those in our arms,
whom we love in our hearts.”
"Drink to me only with thine eyes,
And I will pledge with mine;
Or leave a kiss within the cup,
And I'll not look for wine."
“Birds do it, bees do it,
Even educated fleas do it,
Let's do it, let's fall in love!”
“I don't stay out late,
Don't care to go,
I'm home about eight,
Just me and my radio.
I'm savin' my love for you.”
“Button up your overcoat
When the wind is free,
Oh, take good care of yourself,
You belong to me,
“There were bells on the hill
But I never heard them ringing,
No, I never heard them at all
Till there was you.”
“We may only have tonight,
But till the morning sun, you're mine
Play the music low,
And sway to the rhythm of love.”
