I have never hoped til now that you might be mine
My auntie's words taught me how I may cease to pine
Love me Lizzy, be my wife, overcome my pride
I will never cause you strife if you'll be my bride.
Love me Lizzy, be my wife, wipe away my frown
A selfish being all my life til you shot me down
Loveliest Elizabeth, what do I not owe?
You have made me eat my words and I love you so
