It was long, long ago in the moonlight
We were sitting on the banks of the stream
When you whispered so sweetly, I love you
And the flowers murmured a tune

On they tell me your love's like a flower
In the spring time it blossoms so fair
In the cold wind it withers away dear
And theytell me that't the way of your love

I remember the night, little darling
We were talking of days gone by
When you told me you always would love me
And your love for me would never die

It was spring you told me those words, dear
The flowers were blooming so fair
But now as the snow falls around me
I can see that your love isn't there
