She Moved Through The Fair
My young love said to me, "My mother won't mind
And my father won't slight you for your lack of kind"
And she stepped away from me and this she did say:
”It will not be long, love, till our wedding day"

As she stepped away from me and she moved through the fair
And fondly I watched her move here and move there
And then she turned homeward with one star awake
Like the swan in the evening moves over the lake

Last night she came to me, my dead love came in
So softly she came that her feet made no din
As she laid her hand on me and this she did say
"It will not be long, love, 'til our wedding day"

Lady Mary

“He came from his palace grounds (grande)
He came to my cottage door
His words were few, but his looks
Will linger forever more

The look in his sad dark eyes
More tender than words could be
But I was nothing to him
And he was the world to me”

There at her garden she stands
All dressed in fine satin and lace
Lady Mary, so cool and so fair
In his heart she’ll find no grace

“He knew that I’d be his bride
With a kiss for a lifetime fee
But I was nothing to him
And he was the world to me”

There in his palace grounds (grande)
On a flower strewn bed he lies
His beautiful lids are closed
O’er his sad, dark beautiful eyes

“And of all the mourners who mourn
Why should I a mourner be?
For I was nothing to him
And he was the world to me”
   
Anathea
Lazlo Feher stole a stallion
Stole him from the misty mountains
And they chased him, And they caught him
And in iron chains they bound him

Word was brought to Anathea
That her brother was in prison
“Get me coach and six white horses
I will win my brother’s freedom”

“Judge, oh Judge, please spare my brother
I will give you both gold and silver”
“I don’t want your gold or silver
All I want are your sweet favors”

“Anathea, oh my sister
Are you mad with grief and sorrow?
He will rob you of your flower
And he’ll hang me from the the gallows”

Anathea did not heed him
Straightway to the Judge went running
From his golden bed at midnight
There she heard the gallows groaning

Anathea, Anathea,
Don’t go out into the forest!
For among the green pines swaying
There you’ll find your brother hanging!

Cursed be that Judge so cruel
Thirteen years may he lie bleeding!
Thirteen shelves of drugs can’t save him
Thirteen doctors cannot cure him!

Danny Boy

Oh Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling
From glen to glen and down the mountain side
  
The Summer's past and all the leaves are fallin’  
It’s you, it’s you must go and I must bide


But come ye back when Summer's in the meadow

Or when the hills are hushed and white with snow
It’s I'll be here in sunshine or in shadow
Oh Danny boy oh Danny boy I love you so             
But come ye back, and all the flowers are dyin’
And I am dead as dead I well may be
You'll come and find the place where I am lyin’
And kneel and say an “ave” there for me                       
And I will hear through soft you tread above me
And all my grave the warmer sweeter be
And you will kneel and tell me that you love me
And I will rest in peace until you come to me
And I will rest in peace until you come to me!

Wildwood Flower

I will twine with my mingles of raven black hair
With the roses so red and the lilies so fair
And the myrtle so bright with the emerald hue
The pale Amanita and eyes look so blue.

Oh I'll dance, I will sing and my laugh shall be gay
I will charm every heart, in his crown I will sway
When I woke from my dreaming, my idol was clay
All portion of love had all flown away.

Oh, he taught me to love him and called me his flow’r
That was blooming to cheer him through life's dreary hour
Oh, I long to see him and regret the dark hour
He has gone and neglected his pale wildwood flow'r.

Come All You Fair and Tender Ladies
Come all you fair and tender ladies
Take a warnin’ how you court your man
He’s like a bright star on a cloudy mornin’
First he appears and then he’s gone

He’ll tell to you some lovin’ story
He’ll tell to you some lovin’ lies
Then he’ll sit right down and he’ll court another
And leave you home to pine and cry

I wisht I was a little sparrow
That I had wings and I could fly
I’d fly away to my false true lover
I’d sit outside and I would cry

But I ain’t no little sparrow!
I got no wings and I cain’t fly
So I’ll sit right here in my grief and sorrow
And pass my troubles by and by

Songs My Mother Taught Me

Songs my Mother taught me
In the days long vanished
Seldom from her eyelids
Were the teardrops banished

Now I teach my children
Each melodious measure
Oft the tears are falling
From my mem’ries treasure

His Eye Is On The Sparrow
Why should my heart be lonely
Longing for Heav'n and home

When Jesus is my portion
My constant Friend is He
His eye is on the sparrow
And I know He watches me
His eye is on the sparrow
And I know He watches me

I sing because I'm happy
I sing because I'm free  
For His eye is on the sparrow
And I know He watches me
His eye is on the sparrow
And I know He watches me

Were you there when they crucified my Lord?
Were you there when they crucified my Lord?
Were you there when they crucified my Lord?
Oh sometimes it causes me to tremble, tremble, tremble
Were you there when they crucified my Lord?

Were you there when they nailed Him to the tree?
Were you there when they nailed Him to the tree?
Oh sometimes it causes me to tremble, tremble, tremble
Were you there when they nailed Him to the tree?

Were you there when they laid Him in the tomb?
Were you there when they laid Him in the tomb?
Oh sometimes it causes me to tremble, tremble, tremble
Were you there when they laid Him in the tomb?

Were you there when He rose up from the grave?
Were you there when He rose up from the grave?
Oh sometimes it causes me to tremble, tremble, tremble
Were you there when He rose up from the grave?

Amazing Grace

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost but now am found
Was blind, but now, I see

T'was Grace that taught my heart to fear
And Grace, my fears relieved
How precious did that Grace appear
The hour I first believed

Estrellita

Estrellita de lejano cielo
Que miras mi dolor
Que sabes mi sufrir
 
Baja y dime
Si me quiere un poco,
Porque yo no puedo sin su amor, vivir.

Tu eres estrella mi faro de amor
Tu sabes que pronto he de morir.
 
Baja y dime
Si me quiere un poco
Porque yo no puedo sin su amor vivir.

Translation:
Little star of the distant sky,
you see my pain,
you know my anguish.

Come down and tell me
if he loves me a little,
because I cannot live without his love.

You are my star, my beacon of love
You know that soon I shall die.
Come down and tell me
If he loves me a little,
Because I cannot live without his love

Ochi Chornya
Ochi Chornya, ochi zhguchie
Ochi strastnye, i prekrasnye
Kak lyublu yas, kak boyus' ya vas
Zmat' uvidel vas, ya ne v dobryi chas

Ochi chyornye, ochi plamenny
I manyat oni v strany dal'nye
Gde tsarit lyubov', gde ttsarit pokoi
Gde stradan'ya niet, gde vrazhdy zapryet

Ochi Chjornya, ochi zhguchie
Ochi strastnye, i prekrasnye
Kak lyublu ya vas, kak boyus' ya vas
Ochi chornya, Ochi chornya

Translation:
Dark eyes, burning eyes
Passionate and spendid eyes
How I love you, how I fear you
Verily I saw you at a sinister hour

Dark eyes, flaming eyes
They implore me into faraway lands
Where love reigns, where peace reigns
Where there is no suffering, where was is forbidden


Pokarekare Ana

Pokarekare ana
Nga wai o waiapu
 
Whiti atu koe hine
        
Marino ana e        

E hine e

Hoki maira
 
Kamate au i
Te aroha e

Translation 
 

Stormy are the waters
Of restless Waiapu
If you cross them, girl
They will be calmed

Oh girl

Return to me,
I could die
of love for you.

Pö atarau

Pö atarau
E moea iho nei
E haere ana
Koe ki pämamao

Haere rä
Ka hoki mai anö
Ki i te tau
E tangi atu nei      

         Translation:          

Now is the hour
When we must say goodbye.
Soon you'll be sailing
Far across the sea.

While you're away
Oh, please remember me.
When you return
You'll find me waiting here.
