WHAT NORAH SAID.

Is it lonely ye are, then, without me?
Only wait and I'll come bye and bye,
For myself's just entirely as lonely,
And, darling, I give sigh for sigh.
If the glance of my eyes, like the star, love,
If my voice sweetly sounds on your ear;
In your own looks of love my eyes brighten,
And my voice tender grows when you're near.

Chorus.
Is it lonely ye are, then, without me?
Only wait, and I'll come bye and bye;
For myself's just entirely as lonely.
And, darling, I give sigh for sigh.

Sure the nightingale's notes are delightful,
When he warbles at night in the wood;
And if birds taught us colleens love's language,
He's the sweet little birdie that could.
But it wasn't from him I learnt singing.
Not from nightingale, no, nor from dove;
'Tis my heart in my voice makes to music,
When I see the dear boy that I love.-Chorus.

Then, my darling, Oh! speak not of sorrow,
To her heart's core your Nora is true;
She knows, Dennis dear, that you love her,
And Dennis, you know she loves you.
And would ye then wait 'till to-morrow,
While the moon shines in heaven so bright,
And the lane and the kiss so convenient,
Won't I meet you, my darling, to-night?

Chorus.
And would ye then wait till to-morrow?
While the moon shines in heaven so bright,
And the lane and the kiss so convenient,
Won't I meet you, my darling, to-night?
