She lives in Burgundy,
She’s all the world to me;
Tho’ far away, both night and day
She’s always near to me.
My sweetheart young and fair,
My heart is with you there;
When shadows fall,
I hear you call,
“Where is my love, O where, O where?

When it’s nighttime down in Burgundy
I want to be with you;
In that quaint old town of Burgundy, with you dear, with you,
Just to bill and coo,
Just to stroll along,
Just to hear your song,
Just to love you long,
Just to love you strong.
When it’s nighttime down in Burgundy I want to be with you.

Down where the roses grow,
Down where the waters flow;
Down by the mill I see you still,
As in the long ago.
The rose will die some day,
The waters flow away,
For you, Marie,
And Burgundy
My love will live for aye, for aye!
