Abstract

[Verse 1]
I'll meet thee in the lane
When the clock strikes nine,
In ecstasy again love,
To call tee mine,
My hear for thee is burning,
My brain is almost whirling,
Thro' loving thee so madly,
My sweet mountain rose.
When ev'ning stars are peeping,
Oh, then will be out meeting,
Old time too swiftly fleeting,
Our Happy time away,
I'll meet thee in the lane,
When the clock strikes nine,
In ecstasy again love,
To call the mine
My heart for thee is burning,
My brain is almost whirling
Thro' loving thee so madly,
My sweet mountain rose.

[Verse 2]
I'll leave thee in the lane
When the clock strikes ten,
And faithful will remain, love,
Believe me then;
Deceive thee I will never
And breath from me must sever,
If I forget thee ever,
My sweet mountain rose.
Thy presence care dispelling,
All other charms excelling,
Oh what do grace my dwelling,
As thee my mountain rose.
