If I knew
Where the wild dove flew
I would not tell the hunter
But I would tell you

They say you're not a brave man
Hardly a man at all
You would not shoot the wild things
Like brave men in the fall

Hmm, hmm

If I knew
Where calypso bloomed
I would not tell the ladies
But I would tell you

You would not take the flower
For money or for love
And harm a single petal
'Cause you would not shoot the dove

Hmm, hmm

If I knew
Where our green love grew
I would not tell the others
But I would tell you

For though the world may call you craven
I know, it is not true
And though a sword may hang between us
My songs are all for you

Hmm, hmm

DUSHECK, NINA/MARDEN, PAULINE
