Beauteous queen of the midnight star, still swaying the hearts of men,
Happier I than all, by far, if I had thy love again.
Rarest tresses bedeck thy brow, that rivals Juno's own;
Empress great of my love art thou, ah, could I make it known,
I'd give the world for one warm, sweet kiss, the lips, dewy laden, of thine;
Thy passionate gleam, forever a dream, a creature of form divine.
Ah! beauteous queen of the midnight star, empress of hearts, regent of men,
Such an enchantress, with thrilling pow'r, give me thy love again;
Beauteous queen of the heavens bright, deign but to glance down from afar;
There is but one beauteous queen of night, the queen of the midnight star.
Beauteous queen of the midnight star, a gem so radiant fair,
Out from thy vaulted throne afar no rival can aught compare;
As I longingly gaze on thee, so queenly from above,
Beats my heart with glad ecstasy for one sweet glance of love.
Thy gracious smile fore'er allures, along with those passionate eyes;
Oh, say that my life forever endures, no glimpse of thy paradise,
Ah! beauteous queen of the midnight star, etc.
