Whilst meand'ring through a shady dell one lovely day in June,
I beheld a pretty blue-eyed belle, midst flowers' sweet perfume;
My heart she quickly stole from the, with the twinkle of her eye;
I danced and laughed with joyous glee as she smiled And passed me by.
Blue-eyed, sweet Evangeline, the waking of my ev'ry dream;
She's the idol of my heart, And my dainty, sweet sunbeam;
How can I ever from her part, my blue-eyed, sweet Evangeline?
Next day we met, and out we strolled to talk of happy bliss;
Two hearts that beat as one and rolled with fond and loving kiss;
I felt my heart was in a flame as I clasped her to my side,
'Twas then she promised she would name the day she'd be my bride.-Cho.
