All is over, we are parted
Lost the light of life's young day
Now forlorn and broken hearted
Must I take my weary way
Lovely girl, I think with sadness
On the day that we first met
Then a rose my sun of gladness
Ah! How soon that sun has set
Oh! What blissful joy , what pleasure round by youthful heart I wove
Then my songs were gay and joyous
For the them of all was love
Now I wander forth dejected
Nothing caring where I go
And my songs are all neglected
Save some mournful strain of woe
Save some mournful strain of woe
