In Burgos

I am not that good a walker,
I cannot catch you up,
Unless you really want me to and stay!
I am not that good a talker,
I'll bore you if we sup,
Unless you really ask me what I say:


Refr:
And I say you are lovely
And I say you're such a rose,
And I say I'd be happy,
Just to meet you
And to kiss you
In Burgose!


I am not that good a worker,
I cannot pay for both,
Unless you want to be a little poor!
I am not that good a courtier,
My manners are uncought,
Unless you can my courtesies endure!

I am not that good a poet
(to say it is a lie!)
Unless you like your poetry with rhyme!
I am not that good a singer
(you may laugh or you may cry)
Unless you like your songs to have a chime!
