When the blackbird in the Spring On the willow tree Sat and rocked, I heard him sing Singing Aura Lea Aura Lea, Aura Lea Maid with golden hair Sunshine came along with thee And swallows in the air Aura Lea, Aura Lea Maid with golden hair Sunshine came along with thee And swallows in the air In thy blush the rose was born Music, when you spake Through thine azure eye the morn Sparkling seemed to break Aura Lea, Aura Lea Birds of crimson wing Never song have sung to me As in that sweet spring Aura Lea, Aura Lea Maid with golden hair Sunshine came along with thee And swallows in the air Aura Lea! the bird may flee The willow's golden hair Swing through winter fitfully On the stormy air Yet if thy blue eyes I see Gloom will soon depart For to me, sweet Aura Lea Is sunshine through the heart Aura Lea, Aura Lea Maid with golden hair Sunshine came along with thee And swallows in the air When the mistletoe was green Midst the winter's snows Sunshine in thy face was seen Kissing lips of rose Aura Lea, Aura Lea Take my golden ring Love and light return with thee And swallows with the spring Aura Lea, Aura Lea Maid with golden hair Sunshine came along with thee And swallows in the air ** The line "Maid with golden hair" is often sung as "Maid of golden hair" and sometimes "Maid of flaxen hair".
