O WALY WALY

O waly waly

1. The water is wide, I can not get o’er,
and neither have I wings to fly.
Give me a boat that will carry two,
and both shall row, my love and I.

O waly waly - The water is wide I can not get o’er and neither have I wings to fly

2. O, down in the meadows the other day,
agath’ring flow’rs both fine and gay,
agath’ring flow’rs both red and blue,
I little thought what love can do.

3. I leaned my back up against some oak,
thinking that he was a trusty tree;
but first he bended, and then he broke,
and so did my false love to me.

4. A ship there is, and sails the sea.
She’s loaded deep as deep can be,
but not so deep as the love I’m in:
I know not if I sink or swim.

5. O, love is handsome and love is fine,
and love’s a jewel while it is new.
But when it is old, it groweth cold,
and fades away like morning dew.
