Thread Name: Origins: Go and leave me if you wish it
Subject: RE: Origins: Go and leave me if you wish it
Our family version begins like this:
I once did have a dear companion
Indeed I thought his love my own,
Until some blackeyed girl betrayed me-
And now he cares no more for me.
CHO: Just go and leave me if you wish to,
Far from this lone-lye world I'd flee;
For in your heart you love another
And in my grave I'd ruther be.
