MIDI File

Lochiel: My true love is a shepherdess,
And she's my heart's delight;
I sigh and languish in distress,
I sigh and languish in distress,
Whene'er she's out of sight.
Prince & others: I sigh and languish in distress,
Whene'er she's out of sight.
Mayor: ...of sight.
Tammas & Lochiel: She's out of sight,
Mayor & Rob Roy: She's out of sight,
Prince: ...of sight;
Mayor & Rob Roy: She's out of sight;
Tammas & Lochiel: ...of sight:
Prince & others: I languish in distress when she is out of sight.
Rob Roy: If some graceless churl should not admire
All her graces charming;
Oh, how quickly I strike,
Strike the lyre, in a way alarming.
I sing...
Mayor & others: Strike the lyre,
Prince & others: I strike, strike the lyre,
Strike the lyre, I strike, strike the lyre;
Rob Roy: ...sing,
Prince & others: Yes, I strike the lyre:
Tammas & Lochiel: We strike the lyre,
All: if churls deny her beauty.
I strike...
Male Chorus: Strike the lyre, strike the lyre,
Srike the lyre, strike the lyre,
lLoudly strike the lyre!
Prince & others: In my bonny lassie's praise.
   
Lochiel: Her peer you'll find not north or south,
In vain the world you'll seek;
So lovely are her azure eyes,
So lovely is her smiling mouth,
So fair her blooming cheek.
Prince & others: So lovely is her smiling mouth,
So fair her blooming cheek.
Mayor: ...her cheek.
Tammas & Lochiel: Her blooming cheek,
Mayor & Rob Roy: Her blooming cheek,
Prince: ...her cheek;
Mayor & Rob Roy: Her blooming cheek;
Tammas & Lochiel: ...her cheek:
Prince & others: So lovely is her mouth
And fair her blooming cheek.
Rob Roy: When eve comes at last,
And all my toil for the day is over,
'Tis then you and I, none other by,
Steal across the heather.
We love...
Mayor & others: Steal away,
Prince & others: We steal, steal away,
Steal away, I steal, steal away,
Rob Roy: ...steal,
Prince & others: Yes, we love to steal.
Tammas & Lochiel: We love to,
All: Love to steal away together,
I love...
Male Chorus: Steal away, steal away,
Steal away, steal away,
Let us steal away!
Prince & others: Steal away with her awhile.
Prince: I dearly love to steal away awhile
With my love, with my love, away!
