Queen Of Argyll

  • (Andy M. Stewart)

    Gentle men it is my duty
    To inform you of one beauty
    Though I'd ask you of a favor,
    Not to seek her for a while
    Though I own she is a creature
    Of character and feature
    No words can paint the picture
    of the Queen of all Argyll.

    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.
    All the roses in the garden,
    They bow and ask her pardon
    For not one could match the beauty
    of the queen of all Argyll.

    On that evening that I mention,
    I passed with light intention
    Through a part of our dear country
    Known for beauty and for style
    Being a place of noble thinkers,
    Of scholars and great drinkers
    But above them all for splendour
    Shone the Queen of all Argyll

    So my lads my needs must leave you,
    My intention's not to grieve you
    Nor indeed would I decieve you,
    Oh I'll see you in a while
    I must find some way to gain her,
    To court her and to tame her
    I fear my heart's in danger
    From the Queen of all Argyll
