Long Long Ago

1. Tell me the tales, that to me were so dear,
long, long ago, Long, long ago,
sing me the songs I delighted to hear,
long, long ago, Long ago.
Now you are come, all my grief is removed,
let me forget That so long you have roved,
let me believe that you love as you loved,
long, long ago, Long ago.

2. Do you remember, the path where we met,
long, long ago, long, long ago,
that’s when you told me, you would not forget,
long, long ago, long ago.
Then, to all others, my smile you preferred,
love, when you spoke, gave a charm to each word,
still my heart treasures, the praises I heard,
long, long ago, long ago.

3. Though by your kindness, my fond hopes were raised,
long, long ago, long, long ago,
you by more eloquent, lips have been praised,
long, long ago, long ago.
But by long absence, your truth has been tried,
still to your accents, i listen with pride,
blessed as I was, When I sat by your side,
long, long ago, long ago.
