(a) (b) (a) (b) (b) (c) (b) (c) (c) (d) (c) (d) (e) (e’)

O what love that is purely marvelous (a)


That will make me squirm and fill me with joy (b)
If to wait and see I will be anxious (a)
For you art far and I am an envoy (b)
I am away and staying in this goy (b)
But don’t fret my darling I will be there (c)
To see and kiss my handsome baby boy (b)
For I will give him his very first toy (c)
I bought it in this goy away from Troy (c)
This wooden horse will be his protector (d)
I will put here my letters for my boy (c)
If I’ll not make it’ll be parting gift (e)
My love will be sent because time is drift (e’)
