Beloved, my sweetheart,

More than the world to me,

Our love is like pure art.

You have no counterpart,

From here to Galilee,

Beloved, my sweetheart.

Our joy will not depart;

A blissful jubilee,

Our love is like pure art.

Whenever we’re apart

It’s anything but glee

Beloved, my sweetheart.

A tasty strawberry tart,

A fragrant potpourri,

Our love is like pure art.

You’ll always have my heart,

You make me melt like ghee,

Beloved, my sweetheart,

Our love is like pure art.
