Reel 294, Item 7
In a coll shady nook
By the side of the brook
Two sweet sisters sat fishing one day
They talked as they fished
And the younger girl wished
For a sweet heart she never had known
The other girl said
With a toss of her head,
"Cheer up, dear, there's no cause to be blue
Your love you've not met
But he'll come to you yet
For there's some one a waiting for you."
Some where - some one is waiting For you - you - you Some where some one is waiting For you - you - you.
A youth passing by
Heard the sister's reply
And he joined with them in their fun
He said, "It is true
Someone's waiting for you
And I wonder if I am the one."
The younger girl said With a toss of her head,
"I'm not sure, but maybe its true But if it were not It must not be forgot
That there's some one a waiting for you."
