VERSE 01: Maiden fair, don’t think me dull or stupid,/Should I ask if nestling in your heart/You have every harbored little Cupid,/As he plied his tender magic art?/Have you ever felt a thrill responsive,/To soft pleadings like the cooing dove?/With a ling’ring sigh, and a down cast eye,/Have you ever learned to love?
CHORUS: Could you learn to love me night and morn?/Could you learn to miss me when I’m gone?/Could you learn to yearn for someone,/With yearning fond and true?/I could learn to love someone, I guess,/Learn the language of a fond caress,/If I only knew just what to do,/I could learn to love someone like you.
VERSE 02: Has the telling of the sweet old story/Ever brought the blushes to your cheeks?/Have your eyes, aglow with love’s first glory,/Learnt in silent syllables to speak?/If you haven’t I’ll be your instructor/’Neath the stars in azure skies so clear./Maiden if I should, do you think you could,/Learn to love your teacher dear?
