I have wandered for to find thee Caroline ;
For the love of thee is sweet when yhou art mine ;
With the point of Cupid's dart, thou art ever in my heart,
And the sunshine of my life, sweet Caroline.
I will build a cozy nest for you and me ;
Such a peaceful place of rest should we agree.
Where the birds the gently sing, 'mid the fragrand flow'rs of spring ;
Intermingled with the balm of scented pines.
