Lakes of Cool Fin

Line
Melody - Seq. by Lesley Nelson
Line

It was early in the morning Willie Lemur arose,
And straight to his comrades from his chamber he goes;
Saying comrades, loyal comrades, let nobody know
'Tis a fine summer's mornin', and a bathin' we'll go.

2.To the lakes of Cool Fin, with his comrades he came
And who did they meet but the Keeper of Game.
Go back, Willie Lemur, and do not go in,
There are deep and dark waters 'round the lakes of Cool Fin.

3. Willie jumped into the waters, and he swam the lake round,
He swam to an island, it was there that he drowned.
Saying comrades, loyal comrades, do not follow me in,
There are deep and dark waters 'round the lakes of Cool Fin.

4. Should have gone to Willie's funeral, sure 'twas a grand site,
There were four and twenty young maids all dressed in white.
There were four and twenty young men all dressed in green,
Just to show that Willie drowned in the lakes of Cool Fin.
