Abstract

O lady sweet lady, o lady sweet lady unveil those eyes
The stars are dim, the moon is gone
The stars are dim, the moon is gone
This hour's for love, for love alone, o hear it's sighs
Lady of beauty away, away
Roses will fade as time flies on
Weep when you must but now be gay
Life is too short to be sighing on
Roses will fade... time flies on
fa la la lal la la fa la la la fa la la lal la la la

How Great is the Pleasure
How great is the pleasure how sweet the delight
When soft love and music together unite
How great is the pleasure how sweet the delight
When soft love and music together unite
Sweet, sweet how sweet the delight
When harmony, sweet harmony and love do unite.
