Don't you be sad my little darling,
my heart's not black like a starling;
soon, very soon we will be together,
never pulled apart by any weather;
I will be by your side for ever more,
you are the lady I will always adore;
please don't cry when I am gone,
just think of me from dusk to dawn;
know that if you cry and you are sad,
I will hear of this, and will go mad.
just try to be happy and think of me,
as soon together we will always be;
I want to always be in your life,
one day make you my loving wife.
