KATHLEEN MAVOUREEN

Kathleen Mavoureen, the grey dawn is breaking
The horn of the hunter is heard on the hill
The lark from her light wing the bright dew is shaking
My Kathleen Mavoureen slumbering still.

Oh hast thou forgotten how soon we must sever?
Oh hast thou forgotten this day we must part?
It may be for years, and it may be forever
Oh why art thou silent, thou voice of my heart?

It may be for years, and it may be forever
Then why art thou silent, Kathleen Mavoureen?

Kathleen Mavoureen, awake from thy slumbers
The Blue Mountains glow in the sun's golden light
Ah, where is the spell that once hung on thy numbers?
Arise in thy beauty, thou star of my night.

Mavoureen, Mavoureen, my sad tears are falling
To think that from Erin and thee I must part
It may be for years, and it may be forever
Then why art thou silent, thou voice of my heart?

It may be for years, and it may be forever
Then why art thou silent, Kathleen Mavoureen?
