Abstract

There blooms by the cot in the dale
A beautiful rose of the vale,
La la la la la la la
A beautiful rose of the vale
But more fair is the maiden
That blooms on the spot
She's the loveliest flower
That grows near the cot
La la la la...

3
A dashing young soldier came by,
Her voice, like a zephyr was nigh,
La la la&c.
Her voice, like a zephyr was nigh,
Then he sought the fair maiden
And wished for her name,
But her answer was only,
In wild notes, the same,
La la la &c.

4
"Wilt thou be my love?" then he cried,
But still the gay beauty replied,
La la la &c.
But still the gay beauty replied,
"I will give you fair jewels
I'll give you bright things,"
But the maiden, unmindful,
Still merrily sings,
La la la &c.

5
The soldier, though slighted, remains,
Her wild notes he has for his paine,
La la la &c.
Hew wild notes he has for his pains,
And the song of the maiden
Is hear in the glen,
And as spring time returns,
May we hear it again
La la la &c.
