A girl sat alone on a lawn;
Decidedly neat and a pleasure to meet,
As gentle and sweet as a fawn.
Not for from the spot stood a brave-looking lad,
Who cautions that no one could hear;
He silently stole up behind the young queen,
And whispered these words in her ear:

Eliza Jane McCue, do you remember little Joe,
Who sailed away at break of day, just five long years ago?
And he vowed unto you that his heart would be true when parting from your side.
His love's the same, And he's back again, to claim you as his bride.

Her heart filled with glee when she saw it was he,
Her darling was with her once more:
A loving embrace with a smile on each face,
They kissed and caressed o'er and o'er.
Said he: "I have saved up enough for a home,
To-morrow we'll quietly wed";
And after the clergyman fastened the knot.
These words to her softly he said:- Chorus
