The Swiss Maid lyrics

One time a long time ago,
On a mountain in Switzerland,
Yo lo lo lo,
There lived a fair young maiden,
Lovely but lonely,
Oh oh oh oh.
Day after day,
She'd pine her heart away,
Yo lo lo lady yay,
But no love came her way.
Some day papa said,
Some day we'll go,
Down to the village in the valley,
Then you'll meet a nice young man,
Ask for your hand,
Then you'll be happy
--------------------------------------------------------
Every day she grew unhappier,
On a mountain in Switzerland,
Yo lo lo lo,
Every day a little bit lonelier,
Which way to turn and which way to go
Day after day,
She'd pine her heart away,
Yo lo lo lady yay,
But no love came her way.
Some say the maiden's dream,
Never came true,
She never got to go to the valley,
If she did or not,
I really don't know, Oh oh oh oh.
Did she die unhappy?
I'd rather think she found her love,
Wouldn't she be better if she did find love?
Somewhere,
Some way.
Yo lo lo lady yay,
Yo lo lo lady yay,
(Repeat Till Fade)
