Beat upon mine, little heart, beat, beat; Beat upon mine! you are mine, my sweet; All mine from your pretty blue eyes to your feet, my sweet: Sleep, little blossom, my honey, my bliss, For I give you this, and I give you this, And I blind your pretty blue eyes with a kiss, sleep! Father and Mother will watch you grow, And gather the roses where ever they blow, And find the white heather where ever you go, my sweet, my sweet.
