The dove

Pretender:
I had a beautiful dove that flew away
white as the snow melts slowly in the salt
 
where is she where is she
 
who saw the wings fold toward this house
as fast as the water that falls from the river
 
there is none there is none there is none
 
Father:
My dear young man did not take you any itching
that if that were you to go away around silly loves
there is none there is none there is none
 
Pretender:
I come from the house of mouse anxiety untie your feet
 
Father:
Here doves others do not have come if they are laid
 
Pretender:
I come with a bad heart to a passion that has no equal
 
Father:
Here is a white dove that is not yours it's mine
There's no other there is not / there is no other there is not
 
Chorus:
She flew flew / the white dove
night has flown / a floor of salt
they will find it find it / the white dove
in may they will find it / the floor of the bread
 
Pretender:
You would not want to give it to me this dove to marry
white as the snow that melts in the river
where is she where is she where is she where is she where is she
 
Father:
Look what a beautiful dove is used to sing in joy
that I should never see the stent in another nest
there is not not there / not there not there
 
Pretender:
I'll keep rocking under a pergola of pomegranates
with the care that has the light touch of silk bambagiaio
where is she where is she where is she where is she where is she
 
Father:
Young man who has spoken well on this evening of February
 
Pretender:
I'll keep rocking under a pergola of pomegranates
 
Father:
Know that this dove in May will fly from my home in your
 
Pretender:
With the care that has the light touch of silk bambagiaio
there is no other there is not / there is none there is none other
 
Chorus:
And 'the white dove flew flew
at night flew to Salt floor
They will her find will find her the white dove
in May they will find her at the bread floor
 
where is where is that you are hiding
will get married will get married in the bread Pian
As it stands as it stands, she is like snow
which is melted down by the river
 
And 'the white dove flew flew
of May on the floor of salt
where is where are you hiding
will marry will marry at the floor of the bread
 
Dove dove beak of silk
serves to wipe the floor with her husband for a stroll
Martin must walk with a donkey behind
wood fire souls in the sky
