How can I bear to leave thee?
One parting kiss I give thee;
And then whate'er befalls me,
I go where honor calls me.
Farewell, farewell, my own true love.
Ne'er more may I behold thee,
Or to this heart enfold thee;
With guns and pennons glancing,
I see the foe advancing.
Farewell, farewell, my own true love.
