Abstract

Lizzy lass,
Lizzy lass,
Look but in that keeking glass
There the faultless form you'll see
Dearest in the world to me;
Eye of azure, brow of snow,
Cheeks that mock the roses glow,
Lips whose smiles surpass
These are thine dear Lizzy lass,
Lizzy lass,
Lizzy Lass,
Look but in that keeking glass,
There that faultless form you'll see,
Dearest in the world to me.
Lizzy lass,
Lizzy lass,
Deeply in this siller tass,
Brimming with the ruby wine,
Let me pledge to thee and thine;
Youth may vanish eye grow dim
Age creep over life and limb,
But till life away shall pass
I will love thee Lizzy lass,
Lizzy lass,
Lizzy lass,
Look but in that keeking glass,
There the faultless form you'll see,
Dearest in the world to me.
