Lyrics: William Shakespeare

The poor soul sat sighing by a sycamore tree,
Sing O the green willow,
Her head on her bosom, her hand on her knee,
Sing O the green willow;
The fresh streams ran by her and murmured her moans,
Green willow, green willow,
The salt tears ran from her and softened the stones.
Sing O the green willow;
The willow shall be my garland.
