Thread Name: Lyr Req: The Water Lily (Henry Lawson)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: the water lily
Chuck, I lifted the lyrics directly from a website and, in reading them over, the second verse obviously doesn't flow properly. The fifth line, which is missing should be

'But the beautiful child'

I have the Herdman recording of it and agree with the others who've said what a great version it is (as well as the other songs on the album as well).
