In this year of Seventeen-Ninety-Two Our conventions have been thrown all askew And I know I'm out of date wWhen I seek one mate One faithful lover true To be really in the fashion today You must have a dozen beaux in your sway But somehow I don't believe in the modern plan I want to wait for just one man (It's more fun to love 'em all) Kiss 'em all, short and tall) I have another scheme It's my only dream One kiss, one man to save it for One love for him alone One word, one vow, and nothing more To tell him I'm his own One magic night within his arms With passion's flower unfurled And all my life I'll love only one man And no other man in the world (You've been reading stories of romantic glories) (Are you growing sad for your Galahad?) Soon my Knight may find me Softly steal behind me Put me on a horse And carry me away Laugh all you like at me I'll find my man, you'll see One kiss, one man to save it for One love for him alone One word, one vow, and nothing more To tell him I'm his own One magic night within his arms With passion's flower unfurled And all my life I'll love only one man And no other man in the world ****** As recorded by Jeanette MacDonald for the 1940 film "New Moon": In this year of Seventeen-Ninety-Two Our conventions have been thrown all askew And I know I'm out of date when I seek one mate One faithful lover true To be really in the fashion today You must have a dozen beaus in your sway But somehow I don't believe in the modern plan I want to wait for just one man. One kiss, one man to save it for One love for him alone One word, one vow, and nothing more To tell him I'm his own One magic night within his arms With passion flowers unfurled And all my life I'll love only one man And no other man in the world (Musical Break) Laugh all you like at me I'll find my man, you'll see One kiss, one man to save it for One love for him alone One word, one vow, and nothing more To tell him I'm his own One magic night within his arms With passion flowers unfurled But all my life I'll love only one man And no other man in the world (Contributed by Bill Huntley - July 2005) ******
