She didn’t say yesShe didn’t say noShe didn’t say stayShe didn’t say goShe only knew that he had spied her thereAnd then she knew he sat beside her thereAt first there was heard not one little wordThen coyly she took one sly little lookAnd something awoke and smiled insideHer heart began beating wild insideSo what did she do? I leave it to youShe did just what you’d do tooShe didn’t say yesShe didn’t say noThey very soon stood beside his chateauThey lingered like two poor waifs outsideFor well she knew `twas only safe outsideIn there it was warm, out there it was coldThe sleet and the storm said, better be boldShe murmured, I’m not afraid of ice,I only wish that I was made of iceSo what did she do? I leave it to youShe did just what you’d do tooShe didn’t say yesShe didn’t say noShe wanted to stayBut knew she should goShe wasn’t so sure that he’d be goodShe wasn’t even sure that she’d be goodShe wanted to restAll cuddled and pressedA palpable part of somebody’s heartShe’d love to be on rapport with himBut not behind a bolted door with himAnd what did she do? I leave it to youShe did just what you’d do tooShe didn’t say yesShe didn’t say noFor heaven was nearShe wanted it soAbove her sweet love was beckoningAnd yet she knew there’d be a reckoningShe wanted to climbBut dreaded to fallSo bided her timeAnd clung to the wallShe wanted to act ad libitumBut feared to lose her equilibriumSo what did she do? I leave it to youShe did just what you’d do too
