TROUBADOUR SONG From the play "The Dreaming Of Aloysius" (1928) (Louis Pippa) Burl Ives - 1949 Do you happen to know of a maiden in need Of a sweeetheart? Here's one who is anxious to plead It's a shame that a handsome young fellow like me Should be left while the nightingale sings in the tree It's a shame that a handsome young fellow like me Should be left while the nightingale sings in the tree In the wood and the meadow, beneath the bright moon Every lad with his lass makes the most of the June The world's gone a-wooing, excepting of me While the nightingale sings to his mate in the tree The world's gone a-wooing, excepting of me While the nightingale sings to his mate in the tree The time, it is short, there is none I can spare For the nightingale's song will soon die in the air Don't you think, dearest Phyllis, you'd better agree To make love while the nightingale sings in the tree? Don't you think, dearest Phyllis, you'd better agree To make love while the nightingale sings in the tree? (Contributed by Mel - November 2010)
