VP_015442 Verse 1Ev'ry place that I go, ev'ry bachelor beau, Pays me the greatest attention. If it's just sympathy, makes them pleasant to me, The fact they don't seem to mention. My life as a widow to me e'er shows, All Romeos want the girl who knows. The widow seems, through experience, to gain love's confidence. Chorus 1The fascinating widow, the captivating widow, Her eyes e'er seem to spell, the love her lips ne'er tell. Concealing, yet revealing affection so appealing, The fascinating widow is sure to steal your heart. Verse 2With the girls, it is true, she is popular too, Though ev'ry beau she is stealing. But a glance from her eyes, like a word to the wise, Dispels ev'ry jealous feeling. Proposals, with sweet smiles, are all declined, Men never find just what's in her mind. This wisest daughter of "Mother Eve" will wisest men deceive.
