In a cavern, in a canyon, вЂЁ
Excavating for a mineвЂЁ
Dwelt a miner forty niner, вЂЁ
And his daughter Clementine
Oh my darling, oh my darling, вЂЁ
Oh my darling, Clementine! вЂЁ
Thou art lost and gone forever
Dreadful sorry, Clementine
Drove she ducklings to the water
вЂЁEv'ry morning just at nine,
вЂЁHit her foot against a splinter
вЂЁShe fell into the foaming brine.
Ruby lips above the water,
вЂЁBlowing bubbles, soft and fine,
вЂЁBut, alas, I was no swimmer,
вЂЁI couldn't save that Clementine.
How I missed her! How I missed her,
вЂЁHow I missed my Clementine,
вЂЁBut I kissed her little sister,
вЂЁForgot my Clementine.
