Eliza And Martin Carthy – Waking Dreams lyrics

Oh, don't sing love songs, you'll wake my mother
She's sleepin' here, right by my side
& in her right hand, a silver dagger
She says that I can't be yo bride

All men are false, says my mother
They tell you wicked, luvin' lies
& in the next breath they'll court another
They'll leave you ere the sun does rise

My daddy is a handsome devil
He has a chain five miles long
On every link a heart does dangle
Of another maid he's luved & wronged

Oh then go home 2 yo own garden
Oh then go home, return no more
No other man may come a'courtin'
No other luver cross my door

Oh, don't sing love songs, you'll wake my mother
She's sleepin' here, right by my side
& in her right hand, a silver dagger
She says that I can't be yo bride
