The Queen of Argyll


Gentlemen it is my duty,
To inform you of one beauty
Though I'd ask you of a favor,
no to seek her for awhile

Though I own she is a creature,
Of character and feature
No words can paint the picture
of the Queen of ole Argyll

And if you could have seen her there,
boys if you had just been there
This one 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 ole 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

Bein' a place of noble thinkers,
of scholars and great drinkers
But above them all for splendour
shone the Queen of Ole Argyll

And if you could have seen her there,
boys if you had just been there
This one was in her movement,
and the morning in her smile

So my lads my needs must leave you,
my intention no to grieve you
Nor indeed would I decieve you,
oh I'll see you in awhile

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 ole Argyll

And if you could have seen her there,
boys if you had just been there
This one was in her movement,
and the morning in her smile
