This is the song sung by the characters John and Algernon in the 2002 film adaptation of Oscar Wilde's play, The Importance of Being Earnest, directed by Oliver Parker.

Sorry for the poor quality.

Lyrics:
The western wind is blowing fair
Across the dark Aegean Sea
And at the secret marble stair
My Tyrian galley waits for thee

Come down, the purple sail is spread
The watchman sleeps within the town
Oh leave thy lily flowerbed
Oh lady mine, come down

(Chorus:)
Come down
Lady come down
Come down
Lady come down,
Oh Lady come down

She will not come I know her well
Of lover's vows she hath no care
And little good a man can tell
Of one so cruel and so fair

True love is but a woman's toy
They never know their lover's pain
And I who loved as loves a boy
Must love in vain
Must love in vain

Come down
Lady come down
Come down
Lady come down
