"The Woodturners Love Song"

If I had a piece of Maple, white or red or pink,
I'd turn you a set of chair legs, so you could set and think.
And when you set and think,love, I hope you'll think of me;
For I'd like to be there in you thoughts, if not in your company.

If I had a piece of Coachwood, white & fine & pure,
I'd turn you you a handle smooth & round; a handle for your door.
And when I'd come to see you, you could make that handle spin,
And open up the door , my love, and let your true love in.

If I had a piece of Silky Oak, with even-textured grain,
I'd turn you a lampstand for your light;a table tall & plain.
And when you turn your light on, I hope it'll be for me;
'Cause you're the light of my life-the only one for me.

If I had a piece of Cedar, grain well shot with red
I'd turn you a set of corner posts for a fine double bed.
A bed for you to lie on with the one that you love best-
But I hope you'll lie with me, love...and farewell all the rest.

Well, I'm a turner-that's my trade.,as you can plainly see;
But the thing I'd really like to do, is turn your heart to me.
Alas, at that I have no skill, I never learned the art;
And Cedar, Maple & Silky Oak, won't make a woman's heart.
