|First line of chorus: Come when the stars are shining|
VERSE 01: Down in a cottage close by a stream/There dwells a maiden, fair as a queen/Bright flowers are blooming near an old oak tree/Oft’ of an evening here she’d wait for me/We had a quarrel ‘neath that grand old oak/I left in anger, harsh words I spoke/But she forgave me, true I knew she’d be/For this is the message that came o’er the phone to me.
CHORUS: Come when the stars are shining,/Come when the moon is bright,/Come when the lights are gleaming,/Come in the shade of night,/I will be there to greet you,/Your cruel words I’ll forget,/Come all alone, I’ll be at home,/After the sun has set.
VERSE 02: Down to that cottage soon I will go/She will be waiting, watching I know/There in the twilight ‘midst the flow’rs so grand/I’ll ask her father for her pretty hand/I will not take her from her parents’ side/Nor from that cottage when she’s my bride/But in the evening, when from care I’m free/Then I will remember the message she sent to me.
