W:I said: My dear, you will find that I love you, W:Tell me your dwelling, and your name also. W:Excuse my name, and you'll find my dwelling near W:The mountain streams where the moorcocks crow. W: W:I said: My dear, if you'll wed a rover, W:My former raking I will leave aside. W:Here is my hand, and I'll pledge my honour, W:And if you'll prove constant, I'll make you my bride. W:But if my parents knew that I loved a rover, W:Great afflictions I would undergo, W:So I'll stay at home for another season near W:The mountain streams where the moorcocks crow. W: W:Farewell thee darling for another season, W:I hope we'll meet again in yon moorland vale. W:And when we meet, we'll embrace each other. W:I will pay attention to your lovesick tale. W:Then it's hand in hand we'll join together, W:And I will take you to yon harbour low, W:Where the linnet sings her note so pleasing near W:The mountain streams where the moorcocks crow.
