Unfortunate coincidence

By the time you swear you're his,
Shivering and sighing,
And he vows his passion is
Infinite, undying —
Lady, make a note of this:
One of you is lying.

Неудачное совпадение

В тот момент, когда клялась,
Что ты его, так нервно,
И он тоже обещал век любить,
Быть верным —
Дама, знай: один из вас
Просто врет, поверь мне.
 
Thanks!
