1.
Molly do you love me?
Can the morning beam
Love a lowly flowret
Living in its gleam?
Let one gentle whisper
All my doubts destroy
Let my dreamy rapture
Turn to awaking joy.
Refrain:
Molly! do you love me?
Tell me, tell me true!
Molly! do you love me,
Love as I love you?
2.
3.
Tell me, by those ringlets,
By those eyes of blue,
Molly! do you love me,
Love as I love you?
Can that voice’s music
Flow from heatless glee?
Must I read no feeling
In that melody?
Refrain:
Ah! my heart has yielded
To those smiles that play
With te merry dimples
All the live-long day.
Though the tender blossoms
Need the summer light,
Let our hearts, united,
Brave affliction’s blight.
Refrain:
