My love did sometimes wander,
And my thoughts did often roam,
From the one who held them dear,
And gave my love a home.
But I was young and restless,
And my heart would long to play,
Never thinking of the one I’d hurt,
When my love would go astray.
They say if you play with fire,
You sometimes will get burned,
And though the lessons were often hard,
The lessons did get learned.
For I know my heart belongs right here,
With the one whose love is true,
And if my thoughts should wander again,
They will wander back to you.
