W: W:1 W:In a cavern, In a canyon, Excavating for a mine, W:Dwelt a miner forty-niner, And his daughter Clementine. W: W:ch W:Oh my darling, Oh my darling, Oh my darling Clementine, W:You are lost and gone forever, Dreadful sorry Clementine. W: W:2 W:Light she was and like a fairy, And her shoes were number nine; W:Herring boxes, without topses, Sandals were for Clementine. W: W:3 W:Drove she ducklings to the water, Every morning just at nine; W:Hit her foot against a splinter, Fell into the foaming brine. W: W:4 W:Ruby lips above the water, Blowing bubbles, mighty fine; W:Alas for me! I was no swimmer, So I lost my Clementine. W: W:5 W:Then the miner forty-niner, Soon began to peak and pine, W:Thought he oughter join his daughter, Now he's with his Clementine. W: W:6 W:In a corner of the churchyard, Where the myrtle boughs entwine, W:Grow the roses in their poses, Fertilized by Clementine. W: W:7 W:In my dreams she still doth haunt me, Robed in garments soaked in brine. W:Though in life I used to hug her, Now she's dead, I'll draw the line. W: W:8 W:I missed her, how I missed her, How I missed my Clementine. W:So I kissed her little sister, And forgot my Clementine. % % % % % % % % %]
