"Annabel Lee" as written by Mike Robbins and John Critchley....
It was many and many a year ago
In a kingdom by the sea
That a maiden there lived whom you may know
By the name of Annabel Lee

And this maiden she lived with no other thought
Than to love and be loved by me
I was a child and she was a child
In this kingdom by the sea

But we loved with a love that was more than love
I and my Annabel Lee
With a love that the winged seraphs of Heaven
Coveted her and me

And this was the reason that long ago
In this kingdom by the sea
A wind blew out of a cloud chilling
My beautiful Annabel Lee

So that her high-born kinsmen came
And bore her away from me
To shut her up in a sepulcher
In this kingdom by the sea

The angels not half so happy in heaven
Went envying her and me
Yes, that was the reason as all men know
In this kingdom by the sea

That the wind came out of the cloud by night
Chilling and killing my beautiful Annabel Lee
But our love it was stronger by far than the love
Of those who were older than we
Of many who were wiser than we

And neither the angels in heaven above
Nor the demons down under the sea
Can ever dissever my soul
From the soul of the beautiful Annabel Lee

For the moon never beams without bringing me
Dreams of the beautiful Annabel Lee
And the stars never rise but I feel the bright eyes
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee

And so all the night-tide
I lie down by the side of my darling
My darling, my life and my bride
In the sepulcher there by the sea, in her tomb
By the sounding sea
