Antelope Song.

Oh come with me in my little canoe.
Where the sea is calm and the sky is blue.
Oh come with me for i long to go.
To those isles where the mango apples grow.
Oh come with me and be my love.
For the jungle depths Ill rove.
Ill gather the cocoas cup for its wine.
And hast to thee thou'lt be mine.

Chorus.

Ill chase the Antelope over the plan.
The tigers cub, Ill bind with a chain.
And the wild gazelle with its silvery feet.
Ill give thee for a playmate sweet.

Ill climb the plain for the bias nest.
Red peas Ill gather to deck thy brest.
For should we linger another day.
*Storms may arise and love decay.

Unfinished.
Mrs. Alice Cook.

A.K.M.

Oh come with me in my light canoe.
When the sea is calm and the sky blue.
And do not tarry another day.
Or storms may arrise and love decay.
(Finished)
