Sweet lips, I kissed a year ago, which sipped love from my heart,
I know that he has proven false since from me he did part.
To me he was my only love, his love I still retain;
If on land or sea, he'll return to me, to be lovers, yes, lovers again.
Lovers forever, part we can never, hearts that were blended together as one;
He was my treasure, I shared his pleasure, my love for another he shunned.
Darling, your love I tried to gain, but, alas! 'twas all in vain;
Love, do not leave me; love, I beseech thee to be lovers, yes, lovers again.
His face I see before me now, no matter where I roam;
Those visions hover over me whene'er I am alone.
His songs enchant me in my dreams-they're of a sweet refrain;
I do love thee still, and come back I will to be lovers, yes, lovers again.- Chorus.
