The Girl In The Wood - Lyrics

Remember me, oh, remember me
Remember for the rest of your life

Well, when I was a young man
And drove my mother wild
Well, I met a girl out in the wood
And she said: "Child,
Look deep into my green eyes
And at my auburn hair
And tell me have you ever seen
A maiden quite so fair
Remember me, oh, remember me
O-oh, remember for the rest of your life"

(Remember)
Well, her eyes were green like grassy pools
Lookin' right at me
And her hair was red and blown with leaves
Just like an autumn tree

She raised her tiny hands
And gave a little turn
Then swayed in the breeze
Just like a graceful fern

Remember me, oh, remember me
Oo-oh, remember for the rest of your life

(Remember)
Well, I swore when she vanished
That when I was full grown
That I would have a girl like her
To be my very own

Now I am a man
And I'd marry if I could
Well, I'll never lose memory
Of the girl out in the wood

Remember me, oh, remember me
Oo-oh, remember for the rest of your life

Remember me, oh, remember me
Remember for the rest of your life
