Subject(s): Boredom; Ennui


HE:

DOWN in the glen
By the trysting tree,
Somebody's sister is waiting for me.
Under the stars,
In the dewy grass
Waiting for me -- the poor little lass!

And I sit alone
In my cozy den,
A much better place than that clammy glen,
And I think of her tears
As she waits in vain
Till it seems almost cruel to give her such pain.

SHE:

Down in the glen
By the trysting tree,
Somebody's brother is waiting for me;
Waiting in vain,
Though it may seem cruel,
But how can I help it -- the poor little fool!

I know I'm not faithful
As he is -- but then,
Women are never as constant as men
He'll never forgive me;
I know I'm to blame,
But he might have treated me some day the same.
