THY voice hath naught of the Lorelei lure
To hold men in its thrall;
Of pitch and key thou art oft not sure
At all.

Thy form and features, thy teeth and hair
To others may seem a feast.
I know of a thousand maids as fair,
At least.

Of piquant ways and I-don't-know-what,
Of merriment, art, and wit,
It seemeth to me that thou hast not
A bit.

I never was one to raise my brow,
I never was one to scoff;
But I simply can't see, my dear, where thou
Get'st off.
