the principal Concert Halls in Britain.

All kinds of Music supplied to order on moderate terms.


Oh! I'm lonely to-night, love, without you,
And sigh for one glance of your eye,
For sure there's a charm, love, about you,
Whenever I know you are nigh.
Like the beam of the star when 'tis smiling,
Is the glance which your eye can't conceal ;
And your voice is so sweet and beguiling,
That I love you, sweet Norah O'Neil.


Oh! don't think that ever I'll doubt you,
My love I will never conceal;
Oh! I'm lonely to-night, love, without you,
My darling sweet Norah O'Neil.

Oh! the nightingale sings in the wildwood,
As if every note that he knew
Was learned from your sweet voice in childhood,
To remind me, sweet Norah, of you.
But I think, love, so often about you,
And you don't know how happy I feel,
But I'm lonely to-night, love, without you,
My darling sweet Norah O'Neil.

Oh! why should I weep tears of sorrow?
Or why to let hope loose its place?
Won't I meet you, my darling, to-morrow,
And smile on your beautiful face?
Will you meet me?-oh! say, will you meet me,
With a kiss at the foot of the lane?
And I'll promise, whenever you greet me,
That I'll never be lonely again.
