W:Oh! don't deceive me, oh! never leave me, W:How could you use a poor maiden so? W: W:2. W:Remember the vows that you made to me truly W:Remember how tenderly you nestled close to me W:Gay is the garland, fresh are the roses W:I've culled from the garden to bind over thee. W: W:3 W:Here I now wander alone as I wonder W:Why did you leave me to sigh and complain W:I ask of the roses, why should I be forsaken, W:Why must I here in sorrow remain? W: W:4 W:Through yonder grove, by the spring that is running W:There you and I have so merrily played, W:Kissing and courting and gently sporting W:Oh, my innocent heart you've betrayed W: W:5 W:How could you slight so a pretty girl who loves you W:A pretty girl who loves you so dearly and warm? W:Though love's folly is surely but a fancy, W:Still it should prove to me sweeter than your scorn. W: W:6 W:Soon you will meet with another pretty maiden W:Some pretty maiden, you'll court her for a while; W:Thus ever ranging, turning and changing W:Always seeking for a girl that is new. W:. W:6. W:Thus sang the maiden, her sorrows bewailing W:Thus sang the poor maid in the valley below W:"Oh don't deceive me, Oh never leave me, W:How could you use, a poor maiden so?" % % % % % % % % %]
