Pare thee well, my Tin-ni-min-ni-win-kum-ka. fare thee well, fare thee well:
I must go, my Tin-ni-min-ui-win-kum-ka; where, I cannot tell.
Fare thee well, my Tin ni-min-ni-win-kum-ka;
Fare thee well, my Tin-ni-min-ni-win-kum-ka;
Flower of beauty, Tin-ni-min-ni-win-kum-ka,
Fare thee, fare thee well.
Eyes celestial, Tin-ni-min-ni-win-kum-ka, dark and clear, dark and clear;
When they wake my Tin-ni-min-ni-win-kum-ka I shall nut be here.- Chorus.
Here the Bulbul, Tin-ni-min-ni-win-kum-ka, sweet and low, sweet and loir;
Hark! she says, my Tin-ni-min-ni-win-kum-ka, do not, do not go. Chorus.
I'll come back, my Tin-ni-min-ni-win-kum-ka, back to thee, back to thee;
I'll bring gold, my Tin-ni-min-ni-win-kum-ka, from the Eastern sea. - Chorus.
