She said come and take me in a field of rye
Take me in my youth not when I'm old and dry
For the days are too short in time I am cold
She said come and take me while I am still young

She said lay your hand upon my heart to dread
wrap me in your arms and take me to my bed
for time it wont wait and soon is too late
She said come and take me while I am still young

Take me in the spring time
With my breasts firm
When my eyes shine
When I'm the object of mad desire
Half a woman and half a child
She said come and take me while I am in bed

When my hair is black and I'm full of love
Take me if you please
Time flies on the breeze
She said come and take me while I am still young

Take me in the spring time
With my breasts firm
When my eyes shine
When I'm the object of mad desire
Half a woman and half a child
