36 Songs That Every Child Should Know
Oh! ne'er shall I forget the night,
The stars were bright above me, And gently lent their silv'ry light,
When first she vow'd to love me. But now I 'm bound to Brighton camp,
Kind Heaven, then pray guide me, And send me safely back again
To the girl I 've left behind me.
Had I the art to sing her praise
With all the skill of Homer, One only strain should fill my lays,
The charms of my true lover. So, let the night be e'er so dark,
Or e'er so wet and windy, Kind Heaven send me back again
To the girl I 've left behind me.
Her golden hair in ringlets fair,
Her eyes like diamonds shining, Her slender waist with carriage chaste,
May leave the swain repining. Ye Gods above! Oh hear my prayer,
To my beauteous fair to bind me, And send me safely back again
To the girl I 've left behind me.
