I happened to be walking around
And I hurt two people by chance,
They took me to militia grounds
Where I saw her... and broke down at once.
I knew not what on earth she was doing there,
She was probably getting a pass.
She was beautiful, lovely and fair...
I decided to search out the lass.
I just followed her, walking behind her,
She wouldnít talk to a bully, I thought.
Then I made up my mind to invite her
To the nearest restaurant. Why not?
As we walked people smiled at my pretty one,
I was furious, my mind on the blink!
I just smote the face of a weird man
íCause he dared to give her a wink.
She found the caviar delicious,
And I didnít grudge the expense,
I ordered smash hits to musicians,
And the last tune they played was "The Cranes".
I made promises, showing my feeling,
I repeated one thing the whole night:
"For five days I havenít been stealing,
Believe me, my love at first sight."
I said that my life had been ruined,
Blew my nose and wiped tears from my eyes,
And she said: "I believe you, yours truly,
You can take me at a reasonable price."
I slapped her on the face in despair,
I was boiling like crazy inside.
Now I knew what she really was doing there,
In militia, my love at first sight.
