VP_011076 Verse 1Love is a joy that is sacred, Life means naught with out it's bliss Those who know it might, Should not hold it light They should remember this. Altho' you have found your love mate Learn to hold him e're he stray. Foolish thoughtless things Only sorrow brings And will drive your love away: Chorus 1Foolish wives who forget to cherish All their vows of faith so true Foolish wives who will let love perish Tho' they know not what they do Thoughtless they and all unheeding Of the sorrows that arise When you laugh at Cupid's pleading Foolish wives then true love dies Foolish dies Verse 2Love can be crushed in a moment Like the petals of a rose Just one reckless deed, Without thought or heed, Can cause a sea of woes. There fore if this life has bless'd you With joys of love and home. Do not let these fall Just for pleasure's call Hopeless are the ones who roam
