Aura Lee (Love Me Tender)


Sung by Mannenkoor Hommeros, a Belgian Choir Group

Aura Lee
Music by George R. Poulton
Lyrics W. W. Fosdick
1861

[ Verse 1: When the blackbird in the Spring,
‘Neath the willow tree,
Sat and rock’d, I heard him sing,
Singing Aura Lea.
Aura Lea, Aura Lea,
Maid with golden hair;
Sunshine came along with thee,
And swallows in the air.]

[ Chorus:
Aura Lea, Aura Lea,
Maid with golden hair;
Sunshine came along with thee,
And swallows in the air. ]

[ Verse 2: In thy blush the rose was born,
Music, when you spake,
Through thine azure eye the morn,
Sparkling seemed to break.
Aura Lea, Aura Lea,
Birds of crimson wing,
Never song have sung to me,
As in that sweet spring. ]

[ Chorus ]

[ Verse 3: Aura Lea! the bird may flee,
The willow’s golden hair
Swing through winter fitfully,
On the stormy air.
Yet if thy blue eyes I see,
Gloom will soon depart;
For to me, sweet Aura Lea
Is sunshine through the heart. ]

[ Chorus ]

[ Verse 4: When the mistletoe was green,
Midst the winter’s snows,
Sunshine in thy face was seen,
Kissing lips of rose.
Aura Lea, Aura Lea,
Take my golden ring;
Love and light return with thee,
And swallows with the spring. ]

[ Chorus ]

We’ve not much longer here to stay,
For in a month or two
We’ll bid farewell to Kaydet Gray,
And don the Army Blue.

[ Chorus: Army Blue, Army Blue,
Hurrah for the Army Blue,
We’ll bid farewell to Kaydet Gray,
And don the Army Blue. ]

With pipe and song we’ll jog along,
Till this short time is through,
And all among our jovial throng
Have donned the Army Blue.

‘Twas the song we sang in old plebe camp,
When first our Gray was new.
The song we sang on summer nights,
That song of Army Blue.

Now, fellows, we must say good-bye,
We’ve stuck our four years through,
Our future is a cloudless sky,
We’ll don the Army Blue.

To the men and women of the Corps
Who’ve seen their four years thru
The work was hard, they did their part
and all for Army Blue.

Love Me Tender
Lyrics by Ken Darby,
Attributed to Vera Matson, Elvis Presley

Sung by Elvis Presley

Sung by Norah Jones

Sung by the Lucky Cupids, a Slovenian [ ! ] rockabilly group. I know. Sounds like a SNL send-up. But they are real, and they are good!

Love me tender, Love me sweet,
Never let me go.
You have made my life complete,
And I love you so.

Love me tender, Love me true,
All my dreams fulfilled.
For my darlin I love you,
And I always will.

Love me tender, Love me long,
Take me to your heart.
For it’s there that I belong,
And well never part.

Love me tender, Love me dear,
Tell me you are mine.
Ill be yours through all the years,
Till the end of time.

(when at last my dreams come true
Darling this I know
Happiness will follow you
Everywhere you go).
