Don't Gild the Lily, Lily lyrics

Listen to me, Lil'
And to what I've got to tell ya
I've been through the mill
And I don't want to sell ya
But the game of love
Is hard to understand
So here's some good advice
Never overplay your hand

Don't gild the lily, Lily
Don't let him know he's your only thrill
Even though he knocks ya silly
When he looks at you with his eyes of blue
Don't gild the lily, Lily
Don't overdo on the sweet talk too
If you act a little chilly
He'll be hangin' round warming up to you

Oh Lil', I know what I say
Cause I've been through the mill
So don't gild the lily, Lil'
Oh Lil', I know what I say
Cause I've been through the mill
So don't gild the lily, Lil'

Don't gild the lily, Lily
Don't let him know he's your only thrill
Even though he knocks ya silly
When he looks at you with his eyes of blue

Oh Lil', I know what I say
Cause I've been through the mill
So don't gild the lily, Lil'
Oh Lil', I know what I say
Cause I've been through the mill
So don't gild the lily, Lil'
