Lyrics
Love oh love careless love
Love oh love careless love
Love oh love oh careless love
See what careless love has done

Once I wore my apron low
Once I wore my apron low
Once I wore my apron low
I couldn't keep you from my door

What oh what will mama say
What oh what will mama say
What oh what will mama say
When she learns I've gone astray

I love my mama and papa too
I love my mama and papa too
I love my mama and papa too
See what I get for lovin' you

Now I wear my apron high
Now I wear my apron high
Now I wear my apron high
You pass my door you walk on by
