The Water is wide

The Water is wide - I can´t cross over
and niether have - I Wings to fly
Give me a Boat that can carry two
And both shall row - my Love an I

Oh Love is gentle - an Love is kind
The sweetest Flower - when first it´s new
But now grows old - and waxes cold
and fades away - like Morning Dew

There´s a Ship, and she sails to Sea
She´s loaded deep - as deep can be
But not as deep, as the Love I´m in
I know not how - I´ll sink or swim

The Water is wide - I can´t cross over
and niether have - I Wings to fly
Give me a Boat that can carry two
And both shall row - my Love an I

And both shall row - my Love an I
