Oh homeless girl ****, the meadows of the ram are blooming
Lily, they guided the ram to their pasture
Oh homeless girl guided the ram to their pasture
Lily, the boy worked for 7 whole years
oh oh homeless girl, he could not make enough for the coral bracelet
Oh oh oh, lonely boy
 
Lily, the meadows of the goats are blooming
Oh homeless girl ****, the meadows of the goats are blooming
Lily, they guided the goats to the sweet peas

Oh oh oh, hey lonely boy
