In my little thatched hut
The blue-green grass grows by the brook
I lounge and I look
(I lounge and I look, I lounge and I look)
For my own true love to return
To come rowing in his rowboat back

I'll go to the flower stall
And get a violet to put in my jet-black hair
And make him tell me which one is the more fair
And in the meantime, I cry

And in the meantime, I cry
But what does it matter?
Because when I see him again
It'll be tears of joy

    General Commentit's amazing how someone can destroy your heart by leaving, yet magically restore it to its full glory merely by saying hello after a long absence.

    General Commenti'm pretty sure it's supposed to be "when i see him" rather than "when i seem him"

    anyway, save for that fact, this song is very addictive.
    a slightly different feel than EP and blueberry boat, but it's a great opening track.

    General CommentThis song is pretty great. The different musical parts of the song are a trip when you're stoned.


    and the bassy synth part at the end is almost scary.
