There's many will love a maid
Language: English 
There's many will love a maid
 Because that maiden's fair,
And there's many will court a maid
 If she wears a gallant air,
But far above her wit and grace
 In my dear love I prize
The kind and understanding heart,
The pity in her eyes.

There's many will love a maid
Because her glance is bright,
And there's many will court a maid
For youth and youth's delight.
But far above her wit and grace
In my dear love I prize
The kind and understanding heart,
The pity in her eyes,
The pity in her eyes.
