English.png English text

The poor soul sat sighing by a sycamore tree,
Sing all a green willow.
Her hand on her bosom, her head on her knee,
Sing willow, willow, willow,
Sing willow, willow, willow,
My garland shall be.
Sing all a green willow,
Willow, willow, willow,
Sing all a green willow
My garland shall be.
