Lyrics

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

And when I come to my love's window
I will boldly call her by her name
Saying, "It was for your sake
I'm come here so late
Through this bitter frost and snow
So open your window, my love, do"

"My mama and dad are both awake
And they are sure for to hear us speak
There'll be no excuse
Then but sore abuse
Many a bitter word and blow
So begone from my window, my love, do"

"Your mama and dad they are both asleep
And they are sure not to hear us speak
For they sleep so sound
On their bed of down
And they draw their breath so low
So open your window, my love, do"

My lover rose and she opened the door
Like an angel she stood on the floor
Her eyes did shine so bright
Like the stars at night
No diamonds could shine so
And it's in with my true love I did go.
