Star Girl
(W.J. Ellison)

Come here star girl
and listen to me
You once was my constant lover
But now I will gladly give you up
For one whose heart's more true.

I have seen the time
I would have married you
And took you to some mountain
Where the grass is green
and the flowers bloom
Beside a lovely fountain.

I dreamed last night
of seeing you
How joyful it was seeming
When I awoke and oh how sad
To find that I'd been dreaming.

verso:
1968
"Ballad Rhymes" Sung by Rolf Ellison, son of composer
