POOR Cupid froze his wings one day,
When winds were cold and skies were gray,
And clouds with snow were laden.
A little maid was passing by;
She caught the rogue, -- he could not fly, --
O naughty little maiden!

She sent him off with sharpen'd dart,
To steal for her a certain heart;
But, oh, the mishap stupid!
Since Cupid's blind, and cannot see,
He went astray, and came to me.
O naughty little Cupid!

So that is why my heart is gone,
And I am dreary and forlorn,
With tears my eyes are laden.
She does not want my heart -- ah, no!
I did not wish to have it go;
O Cupid, and O maiden!
