Social Note

Lady, lady, should you meet
One whose ways are all discreet
One who murmurs that his wife
Is the lodestar of his life
One who keeps assuring you
That he never was untrue
Never loved another one
Lady, lady, better run!

Madame, si vous croisez
Ce monsieur civilisé
Qui proteste que sa femme
Est seule à guider son âme,
Que, compagnon idéal,
Il est sincère, loyal,
Et fidèle à son foyer :
Fuyez, Madame, fuyez !
 
Thanks!
