W:Her snow-white wings are all unfurled, W:and soon shall swim in a watery world. W: W:Chorus: W:Don't forget love, do not grieve, W:for my heart is true and cannot deceive. W:My hand and heart, I will give to thee W:so farewell my love and remember me. W: W:Farewell sweet Dublin's hills and braes W:to Killiney mountain's silvery streams, W:Where's many the fine long summer's day W:we loitered hours of joy away. W: W:Chorus W: W:It's now I must bid a long adieu W:to Wicklow and its beauties too W:Avoca's vales where lovers meet W:There to discourse in accents sweet W: W:Chorus W: W:Farewell sweet Delgany, likewise the glen W:the Dargle waterfall and then W:the lovely scene surrounding Bray W:shall be my thoughts when far away. W: W:Chorus
