Queen of Argyle

Irish Song Lyrics - Queen of ArgyleAuthor: ??

Gentlemen it is my duty to inform you of one beauty, Tho I ask from you a favor not to seek for a while. Tho I own to here's a creature of character and feature For no one could paint the picture of the Queen of Argyle. Chorus: And if you could have seen her there, Boys if you had just been there, The swan was in her movement and the morning in her smile. Oh, the roses in the garden they bowed and asked for pardon For not one could match the beauty of the Queen of Argyle. On the evening that I've mentioned I passed with light intention Thru a part of our dear country known for beauty and for style. In a place known for dangers of scholars and great drinkers But none could match the splendor of the Queen of Argyle. Chorus So my lads I needs must leave you my intentions not to grieve you, Nor indeed would I deceive you for I'll see you in a while. I must find a way to gain her to court her and to tame her. For I fear my heart's in danger of the Queen of Argyle. Chorus x2
