Abstract

Come hither my pretty Gazelle,
With thy footsteps light and free;
There's a dimness in thine eye,
Since last I gaz'd on thee,
Since last I gaz'd on thee
The airy bound f thy step is gone
And hush'd is thy silver bell
There's a silent sorrow in thy look,
Come my pretty Gazelle
Then come hither come hither come hither
come hither my pretty Gazelle
Come hither come hither
come hither come hither any pretty Gazelle...

I love thee my pretty Gazelle,
For the hand that lov'd to deck,
And weave the cinnamon wreath,
Around thy tender neck,
Around thy tender neck
She pass'd away like a summer cloud
And wither the grave can tell
And left the light of thine eye
To glad my sorrow my pretty Gazelle
Then come hither come hither come hither
come hither my pretty Gazelle
come hither come hither come hither my pretty Gazelle.
