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 I'll rove.
I'll gather the cocoa's cup for its wine,
And haste to thee if thou'lt be mine.

Chorus:
I'll chase the antelope over the plain.
The tiger's cub, I'll bind with a chain.
And the wild gazelle with its silvery feet,
I'll give thee for a playmate sweet.

I'll climb the plain for the bird's nest
Red peas I'll gather to deck thy breast.
For should we linger another day,
Storms may arise and love decay.
Oh come with me in my light canoe,
When the sea is calm and the sky is blue,
And do not tarry another day
Or storms nay arise and love decay.
