HOW I WISH THAT IT WERE I

I see you with him
You are kssing him
I know I shouldn't spy
But, now, I start to cry
How I wish that it were I

I know you're untrue
And this day I'll rue
I know what you'd reply
Oh, dear, this is goodbye
How I wish that it were I

It's such a comedy
Him with you, you with me
What's to do, I don't know
Guess I'll be incognito

I know I'll invoke
What you have bespoke
I just can't purify
I can identify
How I wish that it were I

I know I'll refute
All your attributes
But, I will say hereby
What I'll still reply
How I wish that it were I
