First Line: Other lads, their ways are daring
Last Line: Naturally, I do not.
Alternate Author Name(s): Rothschild, Dorothy
Subject(s): Love


Other lads, their ways are daring:
Other lads, they're not afraid;
Other lads, they show they're caring;
Other lads -- they know a maid.
Wiser Jock than ever you were,
Will's with gayer spirit blest,
Robin's kindlier and truer, --
Why should I love you the best?

Other lads, their eyes are bolder.
Young they are, and strong and slim,
Ned is straight and broad of shoulder,
Donald has a way with him.
David stands a head above you,
Dick's as brave as Lancelot, --
Why, ah why, then, should I love you?
Naturally, I do not.
