Queen of Argyll
(A. Stewart, arr. Gothard Sisters)


Gentlemen it is my duty to inform you of one beauty
Though I’d ask of you a favor not to seek her for a while
Though I own she is a creature of character and feature
No words can paint the picture of the Queen of all Argyll
If you could have seen her there, boys if you had just been there
The swan was in her movements and the morning in her smile
All the roses in the garden would bow and ask her pardon
For not one could match the beauty of the Queen of all Argyll

On that evening that I mentioned, I passed with light intention
Through a part of our dear country known for beauty and for style
In the place of noble thinkers, of scholars and great drinkers
But above them all for splendor shone the Queen of all Argyll

So my lads I needs must leave you, my intentions not to grieve you
Nor indeed would I deceive you, oh I’ll see you in a while
I must find some way to gain her, to court her and to claim her
I fear my heart’s in danger from the Queen of all Argyll
