Louise, How Sweet The Sound



Louise how sweet the sound
music to mine ears I know
Louise for you my love abounds
I hear thy name wherever I go

Louise how sweet the sound
play on forever music to my soul
Louise my love never to go aground
the lilting pleasure of your name doth toll

Louise how sweet the sound
what tune is this that stops my heart
Louise, around my heart you have wound
forever my love, never to part.
