Sit here my sweet and listen to The tale of love 'tween me and you
When I was young and small of frame I felt no want for worldly fame Nor did I care for heaps of gold I had one love if truth be told I cared for good most of all And feared not pain nor funeral pall I wished to see where good was done I searched beyond the setting sun I wandered until at last I found The woods to be my hallowed ground Beneath those boughs was my home And there I lay no more to roam
I was content, it's true to say Until I met a girl one day She moved among the hills like light For flowers bloomed at her delight All the animals gathered 'round To hear her voice's lovely sound At night the stars would come from miles To try and earn her radiant smiles I was in love, it was clear to see But could she ever be in love with me?
Then one night both long and sweet I stayed awake my love to meet She smiled at me when at her I'd peek So I lay a kiss upon her cheek Her stormy eyes tossed my soul And so I played a bolder role I leaned in for her lips so red But her soft kiss met mine instead
That's the story of how I found The best girl there is around And when our young love did fledge We gave each other a wedding pledge To live each day in free bliss And of course to often kiss
