To my Valentine - Just wear this necklace for all to see, And leave the rest to Tardieu and me.

[Valen]tine, Valentine, where have you been? Gath'ring a bouquet all for my Queen; Revolvers and handcuffs, whips that go "smack!"
And nice shiny daggers to tickle your back.
Come into my arms, You bundle of charms, And I'll put an end ,To your fears and alarms
