'Twas on one April morning, just as the sun was rising
'Twas on one April morning, I heard the small birds sing
They were singing Lovely Nancy
Love it is a fancy

O if I had but my own heart in keeping
O if I had but my own heart back again:
Safe in my bosom
I would lock it up forever
And it should wander never so far from me again

Why must you spend all your long time in courting?
Why must you spend all your long time in vain?
For I don't intend to marry

Young man, don't you spend all your single life in vain
