When you were lovely I loved you,
Lilly Ann,
For the bliss of loving loveliness
Is the plan for man,
Lilly Ann.

When you were lovely,
Lilly Ann,
I sought your love,
Even as the raven
Fed on the dove,
Even as man fed on man,
Lilly Ann.

If you beg upon your knees,
I will not love you, even at my ease,
Not if the lion lies down with the lamb.

For you are not lovely now,
And that was the plan,
Lilly Ann.
