We dont cry -- Tim and I

 We don't cry -- Tim and I,
We are far too grand --
But we bolt the door tight
To prevent a friend --

Then we hide our brave face
Deep in our hand --
Not to cry -- Tim and I --
We are far too grand --

Nor to dream -- he and me --
Do we condescend --
We just shut our brown eye
To see to the end --

Tim -- see Cottages --
But, Oh, so high!
Then -- we shake -- Tim and I --
And lest I -- cry --

Tim -- reads a little Hymn --
And we both pray --
Please, Sir, I and Tim --
Always lost the way!

We must die -- by and by --
Clergymen say --
Tim -- shall -- if I -- do --
I -- too -- if he --

How shall we arrange it --
Tim -- was -- so -- shy?
Take us simultaneous -- Lord --
I -- "Tim" -- and Me!
