The lyrics:

True love never does run smooth
At least that's what I'm told
If that is true then our love
Surely must be good as gold
How we battle ev'ry day
And when I want a kiss
I have to start explaining
And it sounds about like this

Dearie, please don't be angry
'Cause I was only teasing you
I would'nt even let you think of leavin'
Don't you know I love you true

Just because I took a look at somebody else
That's no reason you should put poor me on the shelf
Dearie, please don't be angry
'Cause I was only teasing you

Don't believe a thing you hear, just wait 'till you see
Then you'll find no cause to show that you're jealous of me
Oh! Angry, please don't be angry
'Cause I was only teasing you
