Charming, charming flower of April,
Tell me this, oh, tell me, pray!
Does my lover love me dearly!
Tell me, flow'ret, Yea! or Nay!
Tell me, that I still may cherish
All my heart has known before.
Do not say, sweet flow'r,
He loves me not,
Oh, do not, I implore.
He loves, He loves me!
He loves, he loves, he loves me,
He loves, love me, he loves, love me!
Ah! me! Ah! me! Ah! me! (repeat)
Oh, joy of all the dearest,
Joy of all the dearest,
Hid within my reast,
He, lovely flow'ret, hear me,
Lovely flow'ret, hear me,
Loves me first and best,
Come, then, gentle Marguerite,
Flow'r more fair than all beside;
Here I fondly, fondly, press thee;
On my heart thou shalt abide;
Here I hold thee, marguerite,
Flow'r more fair than all beside.
Ah! Ah! Ah! Ah! Ah! Ah! Ah!
