featuring the Menno Singers – directed by Peter Nikiforuk
Oh, Peggy Gordon, you are my darling,
Come sit you down all on my knee,
And tell to me the very reason
Why I am slighted so by thee.
I’m deep in love but I dare not show it;
My heart lies smothered all in my breast,
It’s not for you to let the whole world know it,
A troubled mind that has no rest.
I put my back against an oak tree
Thinking it was a trusty tree;
But first it bent and then it broke,
And that’s the way my love serv’d me.
I wish I was as far as Ingo,
Way out across the briny sea,
A-sailing over the deep blue water,
Where love nor care never troubled me
