Words by Lawrence Oxenford. Music by Theo. H. Northrup.
Just one night, dear, you remember where leaves hid the trickling brook?
There we met, dear, in our Maying; hid from view in our cosey nook;
There we vowed that we were lovers; and no tongue could our love disguise,
And the earth seemed as a heaven, as we looked in the starry skies.
Ah! love, do you remember, you were my darling,
I was your lover, in the days of Maying time, dear,
And we breathed eternal vows of love;
Just one night, in October, love's golden dream had come in our Maying;
And we vowed that we would love each other,
Love's golden dream was fulfilled in our Maying time.
I remember of the night, dear, that you gave me your love for aye;
How we trod in airy castles, as we looked in the moonlit sky;
How we loved each other, darling, with a love, pure as heaven above;
Then the weary hours of parting, 'till we met to renew our love.-Chorus.
