lyrics

into the goblet she fell from the rafters
she was overcome, gave up shortly thereafter
the queen drank her down with the rest of the wine
the days turned to weeks and the months into nine

lo, lo, lover!
where'd you go?
I've searched high and I've searched low
I dare not put up a fight
just sate my lovesick appetite

just dash me to pieces and I'd be content
if you'd only tell me where my lover went
my royal clothes I could leave behind
if I could only know that my lover's mine

I approached on my steed a garden of maidens
and she had the most beautiful of all the faces
sure of foot and steady in speech
she could not recall, but still I beseeched her

lo, lo, lover! there you are!
I've searched long and I've searched hard
this sunny day could be the day
if you would only come away

just dash me to pieces and I'd be content
if you'd only tell me where my lover went
my royal clothes I could leave behind
if I could only know that my lover's mine

blow, blow, don't you go
don't go where the wind goes
blow, blow, don't you go
come away with me
with me

just dash me to pieces and I'd be content
if you'd only tell me where my lover went
my royal clothes I could leave behind
now that I know that my lover's mine
