I didn't eat for a week when you told me
I didn't sleep, not a wink, when you told me
I would bend over backward and kiss the blessed earth
I didn't know what to think when you told me

Who can explain the heart of a woman?
Who can tell me what she thinks?
I would trade, oh a chest of jade
If you could tell me what she means

How worth while is a good woman?
Would you measure her in gold?
Count yourself lucky if she even looks at you
She don't go for money I'm told

How sweet is a good woman?
Can a honey comb convey her tone?
Just when I think we might be on the brink
She's flesh. I'm bone.
