The Woodturners Love Song (Phyl Lobl) If I had a piece of Maple, white or red or pink, I'd turn you a set of chair legs, so you could set and think. And when you set and think, love, I hope you'll think of me; For I'd like to be there in you thoughts, if not in your company. If I had a piece of Coachwood, white & fine & pure, I'd turn you you a handle smooth & round; a handle for your door. And when I'd come to see you, you could make that handle spin, And open up the door , my love, and let your true love in. If I had a piece of Silky Oak, with even-textured grain, I'd turn you a lampstand for your light; a table tall & plain. And when you turn your light on, I hope it'll be for me; 'Cause you're the light of my life-the only one for me. If I had a piece of Cedar, grain well shot with red I'd turn you a set of corner posts for a fine double bed. A bed for you to lie on with the one that you love best- But I hope you'll lie with me, love.and farewell all the rest. Well, I'm a turner-that's my trade.,as you can plainly see; But the I'd really like to do, is turn your heart to me. Alas, at that I have no skill, I never learned the art; And Cedar, Maple & Silky Oak, wont make a woman's heart. BD APR99
