Dunce Songs : 9

by
 Love me little, love me long,
Then we neither can be wrong:
You in giving, I in taking;
There is nor a heart breaking
But remembers one touch,
Or maybe seven, of too much.
Love me more than halfway, though.
Let me think, then let me know.
And I promise you the same: A little wild, a little tame; Lest it ever seem long: Tick, tock, ding, dong.
