Songs That Every Child Should Know 197
Where the river runs like silver, and the birds sing
so sweet, I have a cabin, Phillis, and something good to eat. Come, listen to my story, it will relieve my heart, So jump into my wagon, and off we will start. Wait for the wagon, etc.
Do you believe, my Phillis, dear, old Mike with all
his wealth, Can make you half so happy as I, with youth and
health ? We '11 have a little farm, — a horse, a pig, a cow, And you shall mind the dairy, while I do guide the
Wait for the wagon, etc.
Your lips are red as poppies, your hair so smooth
and neat, All braided up with dahlias and hollyhocks so sweet; It 's every Sunday morning, when I am by your side, We '11 jump into the wagon, and all take a ride. Wait for the wagon, etc.
Together on life's journey we '11 travel till we stop, And if we have no trouble we '11 reach the happy
top. Then come with me, sweet Phillis, my dear, my
lovely bride, We '11 jump into the wagon and all take a ride. Wait for the wagon, etc.
