Where does the River Rhine rise?
Where does the River Rhine rise?
Where does the River Rhine rise?
It rises in her eyes

When I look in her eyes
I see the River Rhine
I see the river widen: she sees the Clyde in mine

The elm, the elm, the spreading elm
The finest in the Rhineland Realm
Gives so freely of her withy
Beyond the Scabbard of Priapus
How fiery and free the sap is!
In the towering, towering, towering ashes

The ashes tower, elm-enshaded
And her lashes flay green-bladed
The trees decay, the trees decay and fall
On the margins of the Clyde, running with the Rhine inside
And the Clyde inside the River Rhine
And so her eyes in mine
