You sigh that I should try your love
I'll never be alone
That you are true, you coo, my dove
But I don't like your tone

You were, you murmur, further just
A child, but now you're grown
You hiss that this is bliss, God bless
But I don't like your tone

What's with all this purring?
Are you a cat?
Why are we whispering?
Love's not like that

When near I hear how clear you make
Your so-called feelings known
It's queer, my dear, I fear heartbreak
But I don't like your tone
