Abstract

He tells me he loves me,
And can I believe,
The heart he has won, he wish to decieve?
Forever and always his sweet words to me
Are Alieen Mavourneen A Cushla ma Cree.

Last night when we parted his gentle good bye,
A thousand times said and each time with a sigh
And still the same sweet words he whisper'd to me,
My Alieen Mavourneen A Cushla ma Cree.

The friend of my childhood, the hope of my youth,
Whose heart is all pure,
And whose words are all truth,
Oh! still the same sweet words he whispers to me,
Are Alieen Mavourneen, A Cushla ma Cree.

Oh! when will the day come the dear happy day,
That a maiden may hear all a over can say,
And he speaks out the words he now whispers to me,
My Alieen Mavourneen A Cushla ma Cree.
