PRETTY EILIDH
(Cresby)

Eilidh, pretty Eilidh, what troubles you so?
Is it a ghost from the hills long ago?
Is it an ache that yer mum cannot soothe,
Or is it just that she does not approve?

Eilidh, pretty Eilidh, what ails you so?
Is it the hurt in your head, tell me now?
Or is it remorse, rejected by she,
A heart with no home but still not free?

Eilidh, pretty Eilidh, what upsets you, dear?
Is it those voices inside that you hear?
Is it for pity you no longer wish
To continue life in bitter anguish?

Eilidh, pretty Eilidh, you've got so much to give.
A thousand ears will hear your tears, but only if you live.
Sing for them instead 'cause I'm far across the sea.
All I can do is write this song & hope thus to advise thee.

Eilidh, pretty Eilidh, why look on life as waste?
Death dawns for some folk all too soon. Don't die in such great haste.
Don't discard your duty to treat your talents true.
Use them well to please your friends. Then they sure will please you.

Eilidh, pretty Eilidh, pretty please pay heed.
Respect yourself to find yourself and you will find indeed
A woman full of worthwhile fun and youth I envy much.
Give yourself a break, gal! Stay alive and stay in touch.

Eilidh, pretty Eilidh, pretty please.

Thanks George

?I posted this because of another thread on the subject

& it did it's bit in the process.
