Oh, sweet i s the smile of the b e au tifu l moon
That peeps through the curtains of night,
The most of the night I'm g a ily sin g in g th is tune,
As s ta r s seems to shine with d e ligh t.
Nature now lin g e rs in s ile n t repose,
The sweet re st of Summer i s calm,
I s i t and I wonder i f Shamis here knows
How sad and unhappy I am.
Now, Shamis O'Brien, why don't you come on?
You don't know how happy I 'd be,
I would one darling wish and t ha t i s that you come,
Forever be happy with me.
Shamis O'Brien, I'm loving you ye t,
Your heart i s s t i l l trustin g in time,
I t was you who forsook i t and can you fo rge t
The love fo r another y o u 'll find?
No, no, i f you're wounded with sorrow or pain,
I will then have a duty to do,
Ju s t bring i t to me and I ' l l mend i t again,
And tru s t i t do, Shamis, to you.
