"Whilst waiting in the lane for you, darling,
Lingering as the hours roll by,
Attracted by the rippling of the water
And the fragrance where the pond lilies lie;
To gather some I quickly thought,
You'd smile if them to you I brought,
So take them with my heart's best love,
As pure as heav'nly things above.

Ah! pretty pond lilies I've plucked for you,
Fresh from the waters sparkling with dew,
Take them from me as a token so true,
Pretty pool lilies I've bro't unto you.
Tra la oh, he ho, oh, he ho, oh, he ho,
Tra la, oh, he ho, oh, he ho, he ho!

My love shall ever be to you, darling,
True as the water lilies pure,
So take them, dear, and cherish 1o your heart, love,
Don't let your tho'ts of me another lure;
Oh, promise me, oh, pledge your word,
That when I'm gone far, far away,
You'll not forget when with the loved ones,
The lilies and the vow you made to-day.-Chorus.
