Subject(s): Fidelity; Faithfulness; Constancy


However much man may philander
With women from Maine to Peru,
However unstable and fickle
He seems to the casual view,
You find in despite of his falseness
The heart in his masculine breast
Holds dearest one woman,
One fondly loved woman
For whom he would give all the rest!

Yes, whether he's fickle or faithful
And whether he's craven or brave,
A Galahad, Launcelot or Arthur,
A knight or a thief or a knave;
There's one face means more than all others
One image alone and apart,
There's always one woman,
One dearly loved woman
Who reigns in his innermost heart.

She may be a queen or a wanton,
A creature of ice or of flame,
The mate of his home and his fireside,
The light-o'-love sharing his shame;
But hers is the name he shall murmur
When into the depths he is hurled,
There's always one woman,
One dearly loved woman
For whom he would give all the world!
