“Do Not Ask for Love” Lyrics

Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh

And is it so, once more, thou art returning?
Hast thou lost thy way as once before?
I warned thee more than many times, thus would it be (Warned thee, more than warned thee, how I warned thee, how I more than warned thee)
I shall not be thy refuge once more (Ooh, ah, not be thy, not be thy, once before)

Thou makest me free
Then soon thou makest demands on me
And I am not thy love
Thou workest in me slavery

But I shan’t hear thee as before
I prithee, do not ask for love once more (Do not, I prithee, do not)
(Do not, I prithee, do not)

So go thy way, and soon, I shall go likewise (I shall go and mine be low)
And if thy path be high then be mine low (Be high, low, if thy path be high)
Behold my footsteps in the sand but follow not (Behold my, ah, behold my, ah, behold my, ah, ah, follow not)
For soon they shall be covered with snow (Covered, snow, snow)

Thou makest me free
Then soon thou makest demands on me
And I am not thy love
Thou workest in me slavery, oh

But I shan’t hear any more
I prithee, do not ask for love once more (Do not, prithee, do not, prithee)
I prithee, do not ask for love once more
