Stephen Foster, 1859
The pride of the village and the fairest in the dell|
Is the queen of my song and her name is Fairy-Belle;
The sound of her light step may be heard upon the hill
Like the fall of snowdrop or the dripping of the rill.
Fairy-Belle, gentle Fairy-Belle,
The star of the night and the lily of the day,
Fairy-Belle, the queen of all the dell,
Long may she revel on her bright sunny way.
2. She sings to the meadows and she carols to the streams,
3. Her soft notes of melody around me sweetly fall,
