W.C. Handy

Love is like a hydrant turns off and on

Like some friendships when your money's gone

Love stands in with the loan sharks when your heart's in tongs

It I had some strong wings like an aeroplane

Had some broad wings like an aeroplane

I would fly away forever

Hover to come again

Oh love oh love oh loveless love

Has said our hearts are goldiess gold

From milkless milk and silkless silk

We are growing used to soul-less souls

Such grafting times we never saw

That's why we have a pure full law

In everything we find a flaw

Even love oh love oh loveless love

Just to fly away from loveless love
