Words and Music by Edgar Selden.

'Neath the sunny skies of the south of France rode a gay sir knight along;
In a meadow by stood a maid so shy, whose soul burst forth in song;
It was love at sight; thought the brave sir knight, like the lily fair Is she;
And he said, "Pretty maid, of me be not afraid, my sweet fleur de lis."

Sweet, sweet, fleur de lis, beautiful lily of France,
Vision of loveliness, you would a king entrance;
Though you're but lowly born, while I have riches and power,
Happy I'd be if forever with thee, my sweet fleur de lis.

Ere the maid replied, there came to her side a young shepherd lad, in haste.
With a loving glance of sly cupid's lance, his arm stole 'round her waist,
Then the knight rode by, breathed a sad, soft sigh, for a valiant knight was he;
And he said, "very soon you'll have your honey moon, my sweet fleur de lis." -Ref

"Lis" pronounced "Lee."
