Lyrics
They came down from the mound
They exchanged to on from the fountain
And all the while
All the while they longed for us

But I won't betray you
I won't betray you
I won't betray you
I won't
No I won't betray you
No I won't betray you
No I won't betray you
I won't
Till the water's all gone

And you, my sweet flower
And how you grew more sweet by the hour
And love was I
Love was I to lose you
My tender rose
My limber rose
My slender loving daughter
My tender rose
My limber rose
My slender loving daughter

Till the water's all gone

They came down from the mound
They exchanged to on from the fountain
Oh my girl, oh my love I've lost you

But I won't betray you
I won't betray you
I won't betray you
I won't
No I won't betray you
No I won't betray you
No I won't betray you
I won't
Till the water's all gone
