W: W:Chorus: W:And if you could have seen her there, boys if you had just been there, W:The swan was in her movement, and the morning in her smile, W:All the roses in the garden, they'd bow and ask for pardon W:For not one could match the beauty of the Queen of all Argyll. W: W:On the evening that I mention, I passed with light intention W:Through a part of our dear country known for beauty and for style W:Being a place of noble thinkers, of scholars and great drinkers W:But above them all for splendour shone the Queen of all Argyll. W: W:Chorus W: W:So my lads I needs must leave you, my intentions no' to grieve you W:Nor indeed would I deceive you, oh, I'll see you in a while. W:I must find some way to gain her, to court her and retain her W:I fear my heart's in danger from the Queen of all Argyll. W: W:Chorus
