The birds of the forest are calling for thee And the shades and the glades are lonely Summer is there with her blossoms fair And you are absent only No bird That nests in the greenwood tree But sighs to greet you and kiss you All the violets yearn, yearn for your safe return But most of all I miss you Slumber on, my little gypsy sweetheart Dream of the field and the grove Can you hear me, hear me in that dreamland Where your fancies rove Slumber on, my little gypsy sweetheart Wild little woodland dove Can you hear the love song that tells you All my heart's true love The fawn that you tamed has a look in its eyes That doth say, "We are too long parted" Songs that are trolled by our comrades old Are not now as they were light hearted The wild rose fades in the leafy shades Its ghost will find you and haunt All the friends say come, come to your woodland home And most of all I want you ****** As recorded by BING CROSBY & FRANCES LANGFORD: FRANCES: The birds of the forest are calling for thee And the shades and the glades are lonely Summer is there with her blossoms fair And you are absent only BING: No bird That nests in the greenwood tree But sighs to greet you and kiss you All the violets yearn, yearn for your safe return But most of all I miss you BOTH: Slumber on, my little gypsy sweetheart Dream of the field and the grove Can you hear me, hear me in that dreamland Where your fancies rove FRANCES: Slumber on BING: Slumber on FRANCES: My little gypsy sweetheart BING: Little gypsy FRANCES: Wild little woodland dove BING: All my heart's true love BOTH: Can you hear the love song that tells you BOTH: All my heart's true love (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - July 2005) ******
