She didn't say 'Yes', she didn't say 'No' She didn't say 'Stay', she didn't say 'Go' She only knew that he had spied her there And then she knew he sat beside her there At first there was heard not one little word Then coyly she took one sly little look Then something awoke and smiled inside Her heart began beating wild inside So, what did she do, I leave it to you She did just what you'd do, too She didn't say 'Yes', she didn't say 'No' They very soon stood beside his chateau They lingered like two poor waifs outside For well she knew 'twas only safe outside In there it was warm, out there it was cold The sleet and the storm said etter be bold She murmurred, "I'm not afraid of ice, I only wish that I was made of ice" So, what did she do, I leave it to you She did just what you'd do, too She didn't say 'Yes', she didn't say 'No' She wanted to stay, but knew she should go She wasn't so sure that he'd be good She wasn't even sure that she'd be good She wanted to rest, all cuddled and pressed A palpable part of somebody's heart She'd love to be au rapport with him But not behind a bolted with him So, what did she do, I leave it to you She did just what you'd do, too She didn't say 'Yes', she didn't say 'No' But heaven was near, she wanted it so Above her sweet love was beckoning And yet she knew there'd be a reckoning She wanted to climb, but dreaded to fall So bided her time and clung to the wall She wanted to act ad libitum But feared to lose her equilibrium So what did she do, I leave it to you She did just what you'd do, too (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - July 2012)
