Silly Wizard - If I Was A Blackbird Lyrics

  • I am a young sailor, my story is sad,
  • Though once I was carefree and a brave sailor lad,
  • I courted a lassie by night and by day,
  • Oh but now she has left me,
  • And sailed far away.
  • Oh, if I was a blackbird could whistle and sing,
  • I'd follow the vessel my true love sails in,
  • And in the top riggin' I would there build my next,
  • And I'd flutter my wings o'er her lilly white breast.
  • Or if I was a scholar and could handle the pen
  • Once secret love letter to my true love I'd send
  • And tell of my sorrow, my grief and my pain
  • Since she's gone and left me
  • In yon flowery glen.
  • I sailed o'er the ocean, my fortune to seek
  • Though I missed her caress and her kiss on my cheek
  • I returned and I told her my love was still warm
  • but she turned away lightly
  • And great was her scorn.
  • I offered to take her to Donnybrook Fair
  • And to buy her fine ribbons to tie up her hair
  • I offered to marry and to stay by her side
  • But she says in the morning
  • She sails with the tide.
  • My parents, they chide me, oh they will not agree
  • Saying that me and my false love, married should never be
  • Oh let them deprive me, or let them do what they will
  • While there's breath in my body
  • She's the one I love still
