The river is wide, I cannot get o'er.
And neither have I wings to fly.
Build me a boat that can carry two,
And both shall row, my true love and I.

My love is like a lofty tree,
It shudders fierce and then sways free.
If it should fade when the summer's through,
She'll bloom again when the spring shines through.

When love is young then love is fine.
Just like a gem when first its new,
But love grows old and waxes cold
And fades away like the morning dew.
