lyrics

One night as I lay on my bed,
I dreamed about a pretty maid
I was so distressed
I could take no rest
Love did torment me so
So away to my true love I did go

But when I'd come to my love's window
I boldly called her by her name
Saying it's for your sake
I've come here this late
Through the bitter frost and snow
So open the window my love do”

“My mum and dad they are both awake
And they are sure for to hear us speak
There'll be no excuse
Then much sore abuse
Many a bitter word and row
So begone from my window my love do”

“Your mum and dad they are both asleep
And they are sure not to hear us speak
For they're lying sound
On their bed of down
And they draw they breath so low
So open the window my love do

My love arose and opened the door
Just like an angel she stood before
Her eyes shone bright
Like the stars at night
No diamond ring shone so
So in with my true love I did go
