Additional title: I love thy rich glamour, That in thy eyes shine, Come live in my heart, love, And say you'll be mine. [first line of chorus]
Additional title: I wandered far on the mountain side, The soft winds sigh thy name, The mating robins glad spring song, My newborn hopes proclaim, I would not mar one joy of thine, Or dim thy eyes with tears; But only love me maiden queen, I'll never desert thee fair Eileen, I'll ove thee always, dear Eileen. [first line]
