PERSIAN LOVE SONG

Rev. Arthur J. Watson, S.T.B.

Sing me a strain sweet minstrel boy,
Fresh and a-fresh, new, brand new,
Fill me a cup without alloy,
Fresh and a-fresh, a new and a-new.
Sweet, in this nook let our days be spent,
Happy together sweetheart, we two,
Kisses I’ll snatch to my heart’s content,
Fresh and a-fresh, a new and a-new.

CHORUS:
Breeze of the morning, gentle gale
Pass through the streets of my love so true,
Whisper from Hafiz the same old tale,
Fresher than fresh, new, brand new.

Life without love’s a waste, I think,
Quaff merry be, our days are few,
Sweet of my heart your health I drink,
Fresh and a-fresh, a new and a-new.
Darling thief since you stiill my heart,
Ev’rything owes its charm to you,
Form, painting, perfume, ev’ry art’s
Fresh and fresh is new, brand new.
