Lily was a maiden in the castle sea
They found her in the forest
Where the wild willows be
Lily was a maiden in the castle sea
They found her in the forest
Where the wild willows be

Singing, Don't plead me, no
For I will seize you in the snow
Singing, Don't plead me, no
For I will seixe you in the snow

Henry first saw Lilianne
The girl of coloured hair
A-sitting by the river
With the willows in her hair
Lily sang a tune she knew,
A shanty from the sea
He seized her by her little waist
Against the willow tree

Singing fare thee, Oh well
Where you gone, no one can tell
Singing fare thee, Oh well
Where you gone, no one can tell

Oh, you are worth a million silver pennies
Henry said to Lilianne
Oh, you are worth a million silver pennies
Henry said to Lilianne
