NIGHTINGALE, THE (traditional, arranged by Paul Weston) as recorded by Jo Stafford with Paul Weston & his Orchestra October 31st 1947 Los Angeles ONE mornin', one mornin', One mornin' in May, I met a fair couple A-makin' their way. And one was a lady, A lady so fair, The other a soldier, A brave volunteer. "Good mornin', good mornin', Good mornin' to thee, Oh where are you goin', My pretty lady?" "Oh, I am a-goin' To the banks of the sea, To see the waters a-glidin', Hear the nightingale sing." "Good soldier, good soldier, Will you marry me?" "Oh no, pretty lady, That never can be! I've a sweetheart in London, As fair as can be. Two girls in* the army's Too many for me!" "I'll go back to London And stay there one year, And often I'll think of you, My little dear. If e'er I return 'Twill be in the spring, To see the waters a-glidin', Hear the nightingale sing." note - * "in" should be "and"? (Transcribed by Peter Akers - April 2017)
