Representative Text

1 Tell me why the stars do shine,
Tell me why the ivy twines,
Tell me why the ocean's blue,
And I will tell you just why I love you.

2 Because God made the stars to shine,
Because God made the ivy twine,
Because God made the ocean blue,
Because Goad made you, that's why I love you.

3 I really think that God above
Created you in his great love.
I picked you out from all the rest
Because I knew, dear, I'd love you best.
