lyrics

Pleasant and Delightful or The Larks They Sang Melodious (Traditional song arranged by Mitchell and Vincent)

It was pleasant and delightful on a fine summer's morn
And the green fields and the meadows were covered in corn
And the blackbirds and thrushes sang on every green tree
And the larks they sang melodious at the dawning of the day
And the larks they sang melodious x3
At the dawning of the day.

A sailor and his true love were walking one day
Said the sailor to his true love "I am bound far away
I’m bound for the Indies where the load cannons roar
I must go and leave you Nancy you're the girl that I adore
I must go and leave you Nancy x3
You're the girl that I adore.

So fare thee well my dearest Nancy, I'm bound far away
The ship is a-waiting out there in the bay
The anchor is hoisted she waits the next tide
And if ever I return again I will make you my bride
And if ever I return again x3
I will make you my bride

The ring from off her finger she instantly drew
Saying "Take this dearest William and me heart will go too"
And as he embraced her tears from her eyes fell
Saying, "May I go along with you?" "Oh no me love farewell"
Saying, "May I go along with you?" x3
"Oh no me love farewell"
