 Once two handsome gentlemen asked a fair young maid a question:
“What must we do to win your hand and gain your kind affection?”
One said he was “stronger by far” than any other man that she’d meet.
Also being braver than most, said, “Please marry me, I’m adoringly sweet.”

 Then, said the other, “What if I give you diamonds and pearls, would you be my bride?
I can offer power and riches. All through your life you'll be satisfied.”

“Well,” she replied, “I’d make my selection,
and you’d receive my love and affection
if you danced on my heart, if you sang to my soul.
But alas, my heart is not pounding
and your songs are not sounding.
Therefore, I cannot marry you.”

 Then a kindly gentleman asked the fair young maid the question:
“What must I do to win your hand and gain your kind affection?
I can only promise to love you, be at your side through all of my life.
I will be your faithful companion. Come take my hand, say you'll be my wife.”

“Sir,” she replied, “you are my selection,
and you’ll receive my love and affection
for you dance on my heart, and you sing to my soul.
I’ll take your hand,
wear your wedding band.
Yes, kind sir, I will marry you!”

"This is an exceptionally beautiful song with inspiring lyrics, modern harmonies and bright rhythms. "
review by: JS, North Hollywood, CA -

"This may be the catchiest and most beloved song i've ever sang in a choir. The lyrics are quite catchy and are reminiscent of a modern day madrigal. Don't think it's boring though. It's beautiful and fast paced, sure to be a showstopper!"
