hazel eyes lyrics – darkness

i hail from the flatlands of east anglia
a town that once could boast prosperity
she had trekked for many moons from a land afar
but the cruel nets had emptied the northen sea

and she said “hoots, i cannae get back tae
me hoos in bonny scotland”

girl with the hazel eyes – aaaaah!
girl with the hazel eyes – aaaaah!

the elements had taken their toll on her
her face was weather beaten and her hair greasy
i had never seen a set of eyes more hazelerer
and a tear did fall as she looked up at me

and she said “hoots, i cannae get back tae
me hoos in bonny scotland”

girl with the hazel eyes – aaaaah!
girl with the hazel eyes – aaaaah!

i shall travel with thee
for to see your folks in scotland
with their blessing, on one knee
i shall ask for your left hand

girl with the hazel eyes – aaaaah! [x4]

i shall travel with thee
for to see your folks in scotland
with their blessing, on one knee
i shall ask for your left hand
