Lyrics:
Yes, Willow weep for me
Willow weep for me
Bend your branches green along the stream that runs to sea
Listen to my plea
Listen willow and weep for me

Yes, Gone my lovers dream
Lovely summer dream
Gone and left me here to weep my tears into the stream
Sad as I can be
Hear me willow and weep for me

    Oh, Whisper to the wind and say that love's a sin
    Leave my heart a-breaking, and making a moan
    Murmur to the night to hide her starry light
    So none will find me sighing, crying all alone

Oh, willow weep tree
Weeping sympathy
Bend your branches down along the ground and cover me
When the shadows fall, bend over willow and weep for me

{trumpet solo}

    Whisper to the wind and say that love is sin
    Leave my heart a-breaking, and making a moan
    Murmur to the night to hide her starry light
    So none will find me sighing and crying all alone

Yes, willow weep tree
Weeping sympathy
Bend your branches down along the ground and cover me
When the shadows fall, bend over willow and weep for me
Yes
