  • Song Lyrics:
    Yes, my dear, I must admit that one time I might did
    (And if you grow wiser for me experience)
    Yes, my dear, I grew wiser in many ways and the thing I learned most
    Is don't give a dose to the one you love most

    No, don't give a dose to the one you love most
    Give her some marmalade; give her some toast
    You can give her the willings or give her the blues
    But the dose that you give her will get back to you
    I once had a lady as sweet as a song; she was my darlin' and she was my dear
    But she had a dose and she passed it along
    Now she's gone but the dose is still here
    So don't give a dose to the one you love most
    Giver her some marmalade; give her some toast
    You can give her a partridge up in a pear tree
    But the dose that you give her might get back to me

    If you've got an itchin'
    if you've got a drip
    don't sit there wishin' for it to go way
    'Cause it won't if there's a thing on the tip of your thing or your lip
    Run down to the clinic today and say
    I won't give a dose
    (Marcus Tee)
