Lyrics:

Nevermore ah! nevermore,
Can we recall those rays;
Bright and blissful rays of joy.
That shine on childhood's days.
As we toil through weary years
Of sorrow, and of pain,
Mem'ry will revert with tears.
To those sweet joys again.
Nevermore, ah! nevermore,
Can we recall those rays;
Bright and blissful rays of joy,
That shine on childhood's days.

Oft we feel a vain regret,
Steal in upon our thoughts,
Rememb'ring those, we lov'd at home.
The precious truths they taught.
Dreaming still, we love to roam around those hallow'd ways,
Roaming still, there seems to come,
A voice that sadly ways;
Nevermore ah! nevermore,
Can we recall those rays;
Bright and blissful rays of joy,
That shine on childhood's days.
