Lyrics: Green Eyes

April 1, 2012

Snape with Mirror of Erised

new words by Moglet,
to the tune of ‘Greensleeves’ (trad.)

(You can listen to the song here.)

 

 

Alas, my love, I did you wrong
And sealed your fate unknowingly,
When to the Dark Lord I went along
And told him about the prophecy.

Green eyes were all my joy,
Green eyes were my delight,
Green eyes and a heart of gold,
My Lily had beautiful green eyes
.

My heart was broken when you died,
My love for you was the best of me.
And when I heard, in despair I cried
And I hungered for your company.

Green eyes had been all my joy
Green eyes had been my delight
Green eyes and a heart of gold
My beautiful Lily’s green eyes
.

Dumbledore gave me my new role:
Your son I promised that I would save,
And I have wagered both life and soul,
And know it may take me to my grave.

Green eyes that were all my joy,
Green eyes that were my delight,
Green eyes and that heart of gold,
I remember my Lily’s green eyes
.

And now your son has the same green eyes,
Which I can hardly bear to see.
He looks so like the man I despise,
But I promise to ensure his safety.

Green eyes that were all my joy,
Green eyes that were my delight,
Green eyes and that heart of gold,
The boy has my Lily’s green eyes
.

And I will miss you my whole life long,
Remembering the day we first met,
And rue the day that I did you wrong,
And honour you with my life debt.

Green eyes were all my joy,
Green eyes were my delight,
Green eyes and a heart of gold,
My Lily had beautiful green eyes
.
