If I was a bird on the wing 
I would fly to your bed to embrace your body. 
Oh, oh! My darling, turn to me. 
 
Although my body is sleeping 
my spirit is aroused and my heart throbs with desire. 
Oh, oh! My darling, turn to me 
 
Now a long farewell e hine 
Must you go away and leave me Here alone in grief I'm pining 
Oh, oh! Sobbing for you tenderly. 
The body is sleeping 
the spirit is wandering the heart is pining 
Crying for you tenderly 
Loved one, turn back to me. 
Crying for you tenderly
