Alas, my beloved!

.....Alas, my fair!

Do not weep a tear for me.

With heavy heart

.....and soul, and mind,

I will leave my home and love-to-be.

Yet, though I'm off

.....to a place unknown

With dangers and perils we cannot foresee

Keep your heart light

.....and that smile so swift

I'll be back in a moment

To draw you to me

.....for a kiss and a sigh,

Ay! My dear lonesome – forever it be!
