"The What And the Who of it!

What is so fair as a rose thats in bloom?
What is so sweet as the morning dew?
What is so rare as a Bright night in June?
You Beansie darling its you.

What is as bright as a new silver dollar?
What is so old that its new?
What makes me want to stand right up and holler?
My love Beansie darling for you.

But who is as lonesome as he can be?
Who is it will always cherish thee?
Who is the one who is dying to see,
You Beansie darling? It me."

"If I were King

If love was a peasant and I were King
On an island that knew no hate
I'd happy be, I'd laugh and sing
I'd treat him, Oh, first rate

And in my Palace where I abide
And live life all alone
I'd keep this peasant by my side
Perhaps give him my throne

For love reigns well, and I have read
In stores old and new
That happy paths you'll always tread
If he resides with you

I think that he comes from above
He always reigns supreme
You Beannie are that Peasant, Love
The King is but a dream."
