Sarah Brightman – O Waly, Waly lyrics

The water is wide, I cannot get oer,
And neither have I wings to fly.
Give me a boat that will carry two,
And both shall row, my love and I.

O, down in the meadows the other day,
A-gathring flowers both fine and gay,
A-gathring flowers both red and blue,
I little thought what love can do.

I leaned my back against some oak
Thinking that he was a trusty tree;
But first he bended, and then he broke,
And so did my false love to me.

A ship there is, and she sails the sea,
Shes loaded deep as deep can be,
But not so deep as the love I'm in;
I know not if I sink or swim.

O, love is handsome and love is fine,
And loves a jewel while it is new,
But when it is old, it groweth cold,
And fades away like morning dew.
