The Canadian Soldiers' Song Book/A Bachelor Gay

14—A BACHELOR GAY (The Maid of the Mountains)

At seventeen he falls in love quite madly
With eyes of tender blue,
At twenty-four he gets it rather badly
With eyes of a diff'rent hue,
At thirty-five you'll see him flirting sadly
With two or three, or more,
When he fancies he is past love,
It is then he meets his last love,
And he loves her as he's never lov'd before.
