Would You Be My Lady?

(You have to remember, I was fifteen years old.
The music was easily as bad as the lyrics.
Debbie LeBaron: this one's for you.)

 

You're so beautiful,
so unmerciful,
so unquestionably fine.

Want you with me
forever--
Would you please be mine?

I need you, oh, how I want you--
I want you ever and always.
I have to have you, my darling,
and this is my humble cry:

Would you be my lady
and have me for your man?
Would you be my lady?
We can walk hand in hand
'cross the threshold to love.

Now it's over--
you're a great lover.
Want you more than ever now.

Want you with me
forever--
Would you please be with me? Ah…

I need you, oh, how I want you--
I want you ever and always.
I have to have you, my darling,
and this is my humble cry:

Would you be my lady
and have me for your man?
Would you be my lady?
We can walk hand in hand
'cross the threshold to love.
