Over the Hills and Far Away (John Gay) Were I laid on Greenland's Coast, And in my Arms Embrac'd my Lass; Warm amidst eternal Frost, Too soon the half year's Night would pass. Were I sold on Indian soil Soon as the burning day was clos'd, I could mock the sultry Toil, When on my charmer's breast repos'd. Cho: And I would love you all the Day, Every night would kiss and play, If with me you'd fondly stray, Over the hills and far away. from Beggar's Opera DS
