EILEEN AROON 5

How sweet and how pleasing the birds sing in tune!
How sweet and how pleasing the birds sing in tune!
Gay prospects abounding, All nature resounding,
And will delight my sweet Ai---leen Aroon!
And will delight my sweet Aileen Aroon.

The roses and li---lies in May and in June,
The roses and lilies in May and in June,
So charming and blooming, Around all perfuming,
So charming and blooming, Around all perfuming,
Are not half so sweet as my Aileen Aroon.

When sultry bright Phoebus, makes fervid the noon,
When sultry bright Phoebus, makes fervid the noon,
In the grove or the bow'r I'll pass the long hour,
And sing in the praise of sweet Aileen Aroon!
And sing,---- sing in praise of sweet Aileen Aroon!

A song without title, set to the tune in <the Songsters Companion>>, London, n.d. (c 1778) (Single sheet
ed, 'A favorite Irish ballad,' c 1770, noted in BUCEM), goes:
