Ships In The Forest Love Is Pleasing
Credits: Traditional; arranged by Karan Casey & Caoimhín Vallely
Appears On: Ships In The Forest
Language: English


I never thought my love would leave me
Until that morning when he stepped in
Well, he sat down and I sat beside him
And then our troubles, they did begin

Oh love is teasing and love is pleasing
And love is a pleasure when first it's new
But love grows older and love grows colder
And it fades away like the morning dew

There is an alehous in yon town
And it's there my love goes and he sits down
He takes a strange girl upon his knee
And he tells to her what he once told to me

I wish my father had never whistled
And I wish my mother had never sung
I wish the cradle had never rocked me
And I wish my life, it had not begun
