"I will return," he said to me; "I will come back, my love, to thee; When nature smiles on land and sea, I will return again to thee. When the robins nest again, And the flowers are in bloom, When the spring-time's sunny smile Seems to banish all sorrow and gloom[."]
CHORUS. - When the robins nest again, And the flowers are in bloom, When the spring-time's sunny smile Seems to banish all sorrow and gloom, Then my bonnie, blue-eyed lad, If my heart is true till then, Has promised he'll return to me, When the robins nest again.
Then my bonnie, blue-eyed lad, If my heart is true till then, Has promised he'll return to me, When the robins nest again Life seems so bright when in thought I'm with thee, Come, love, hasten, come back to me! We'll build our nest with the robins in spring-time! Donald, return, love, to me. - Chor.
Last night, in a dream, I saw his proud ship wrecked at sea; And I felt that my heart's dear love, Could never come back to me; But the spring-time and robins will come, And with them the bravest of men, For his last words were "Darling, I'll meet you When the robins nest again." - Chor.
