Son, when you deal with womankind,
Unless you'd be a lemon in
The game of love, you'd better find
The pleases most the Feminine.
Though your devotion be expressed
In toiling all thru life for her,
The things a woman likes the best
Are little things you do for her.
A little keepsake now and then,
A bunch of flowers sent to her,
A note in which you gently pen
A bit of sentiment to her.
Praise of a hat, a gown, her eyes,
Will make gray skies clear blue for her,
Oh, greatly does a woman prize
These little things you do for her!
Be kind and strong and clean and brave,
But still let me recall to you
That oftentimes a girl will crave
Things that seem very small to you.
A smile, a trivial act polite
Will make the world seem new for her,
You keep the love lamp burning bright
By little things you do for her!
