Lyrics

1. My sweetheart, come along!
Don’t you hear the fond song?
The sweet notes where the nightingale flows?
For to hear the fond tale of the sweet nightingale
As she sings in the valley below,
As she sings in the valley below,

(Version 2)
1. Pretty maid, come along!
Don’t you hear the sweet song?
Lovely notes of the nightingale flow?

2. Pretty Betty, don’t fail, For I’ll carry your pail,
Safely home to your cot as we go.
You shall hear the fond tale of the sweet nightingale
As she sings in the valley below.
As she sings in the valley below.
