The snow it melts the soonest when the winds begin to sing And the bee that flew when summer shone in winter he won’t sing And all the flowers in the land so brightly they may be
And the snow it melts as soon as when my true love comes for me
So don’t you bid me farewell, no farewell I recive
You hold me in your arms once more then kiss and take your leave And I’ll be here waiting for you, I promise that I will
For the snow it melts the soon as when the winds begin to sing”
