Clementine

In a carven, in a carven,
Excavating for a mine,
Dewlt a miner forty niner,
And his daughter Clementine
Oh my darling! Oh my darling!
Oh my darling Clementine!
You are lost and gone forever,
Dreadful sorry Clementine.

Light she was and like a fairy,
And her shoe was number nine,
Herring boxes without topses,
Sandals were for Clementine,
Oh my darling! Oh my darling!
Oh my darling Clementine,
You are lost and gone forever,
Dreadful sorry Clementine.

She drove ducklings,
To the water,
Every morning just at nine,
Struck her foot,
Against the splinter,
Fell into the foaming brine,
Oh my darling! Oh my darling!
Oh my darling Clementine!
You are lost and gone forever,
Dreadful sorry Clementine.

In a carven, in a carven,
Excavating for a mine,
Dewlt a miner forty niner,
And his daughter Clementine
Oh my darling! Oh my darling!
Oh my darling Clementine!
You are lost and gone forever,
Dreadful sorry Clementine.
