St. Valentine

lyrics and accompanying music copyright 2008 by Richard Crawford. All rights reserved.


and with this ring I do thee wed, forever and all time;
      
but when came the cold you did depart, and I have no need for St. Valentine

you found me in the month of Februar, when the winds they strongly blew;            

a mere fortnight had passed and I felt my heart at last

could nest and lie in peace;
    
so meet me ‘ore the water

meet me anywhere;
    
for I shall never find another
         
whom St. Valentine has thought to spare;


when the hoar frost turns the world to cold, that also shall my poor heart do

I hoped ‘till the last but now my strength has passed
     
so surely shall my pain now cease
    
so meet me ‘ore the water

meet me anywhere;
    
for I shall never find another
         
whom St. Valentine has thought to spare;
