When the Pansies Droop and Die.
Copyright, 1884, by George Arlington.
Words and Music by George Arlington.

When the pansies droop and die,
And the birds have come and gone,
Then my Jamie will return
To the land where he was born;
For he said, long years ago,
When he bade us. all good-bye,
"I'll return some day to you,
When the pansies droop and die."

Impatiently I've waited, Jamie, for you,
With heart sad and lonely, tender and true;
The warm days are over, song birds depart,
Thy promise remember, cheer my poor heart.
For you said, long years ago,
When you bade us all good-bye,
"I'll return some day to you,
When the pansies droop and die."

Far from the home of thy childhood thou'st wandered,
Far from the loved ones waiting for you there;
Long years so dreary have passed since you left us,
Why need you linger? oh, Jamie we're watching for you.
Oh! come, Jamie, come, do not longer delay, hasten the day,
Oh! come, Jamie, come to this heart that is sad and lonely;
For Summer days are o'er, and the pansies droop and die,
Brighter days are in store, happy days for you and I;
As thro' life we roam, never more to part again,
Jamie, do not longer tarry, thy absence causes pain.
