1.
I’m thinking of sweet Lena Clare,
With deep blue eyes and waving hair,
Her voice is soft, her face is fair
My gentle Lena Clare.
Chorus:
Gentle Lena Clare
My dear lov’d Lena Clare
Her heart is light, her eyes are bright,
My gentle Lena Clare.
2.
I love her careless winning ways,
I love her wild and birdlike lays,
I love the grass whereon she strays
My gentle Lena Clare.
Chorus:
3.
Her home is in the shady glen,
When summer comes I’ll seek again,
On mountain height and lowland plain,
My gentle Lena Clare.
