Rosa Mrs. Mac.
When nature sleeps and slumber creeps
o'er mortal eyes, then witches play.
When nature sleeps and slumber creeps
o'er mortal eyes, then witches play.
When nature sleeps and slumber creeps o'er mortal eyes,
then witches play.
When nature sleeps and slumber creeps o'er mortal eyes,
then witches play.
An elf in ev'ry shadow hides!
On ev'ry cloud a warlock rides.
To hold his tryst in mountain mist. To hold his tryst in mountain mist.
To hold his tryst in mountain mist. To hold his tryst in mountain mist.
An elf in ev'ry shadow hides.
On ev'ry cloud a warlock rides.
The moon supplants the light of day.
To light the warlocks on their way.
The moon supplants the light of day.
To light the warlocks on their way.
Rosa and Mrs. Mac.:
The moon supplants the light of day, the light of day.
When nature sleeps and slumber creeps o'er mortal eyes, then witches play.
When nature sleeps and slumber creeps o'er mortal eyes, o'er mortal eyes,
then witches play, then witches play.
When nature sleeps, then nature sleeps, then witches play,
Then witches play.
