By Thomas H, Bayly 1833
Tell me the tales to me were so dear,
Long, long ago,long, long ago;
Sing me the songs I delighted to hear,
Long, long ago, long ago;
Now  you are come, all my grief is removed,
Let me forget that so long you have rov`d,
Let me believe that you love as you loved,
Long, long ago, long ago.

Do you remember the path where we met,
Long, long ago, long, long ago;
Ah, yes, you told me you ne`er would forget,
Long, long ago, long ago;
Then, to all others, my smile you prefer`d,
Love, when you spoke, gave a charm to each word,
Still me heart treasures the praises I heard,
Long, long ago, long ago.
Tho`by your kindness my fond hopes were rais`d,
Long, long ago, long ago,
You be more eloquent lips have been prais`d,
Long, long ago, long ago;
But be long absence your truth has been tried,
Still to your accents I listen with pride,
Blest as I was when I sat by your side,
Long, long ago, long ago.
