Tread lowly my dear, your tongue;
Tread lowly and softly,
And mind my love.


Oh, dear you are to me now—


Or else, or else.
I double barrel dare you
I’ve got two rifles crossed
Outside this heart—
I’ve got two riles crossed
Outside this heart—
And when a woman’s known a man
Who knows how not to mind her love
She won’t have it so hard this time
Pulling the trigger
When she’s done.
So if you want to stay with me,
You’d better listen to me when I say:

Tread lowly my dear, your tongue;
Tread lowly and softly,
And mind my love
