Stanzas to Adelaide

To Adelaide


Adelaide beautiful Adelaide see
The spring is returning to beauty and thee
The snowdrops are breaking the soil and appear
As white as thy neck at the spring of the year
Adelaide beautiful Adelaide here
The primroses come and tis spring of the year


The primroses come and the birds mate in pairs
O when will my life be as happy as theirs
O when shall I woo thee and sit in the shade
Mong violets and primroses my sweet Adelaide
When in those bright eyes will those baby's appear
That I saw when I kissed thee last spring of the year
O Adelaide beautiful Adelaide hear
The snow drops have brought thee the spring of the year


The aconites open like rays of the sun
And tell thee the pleasures of spring is begun
Then Adelaide beautiful Adelaide hear
Let us take lovers walks at the spring of the year
