Sweet Ophelia

Wicked Lester


She turned down the captain
When he came around to score
She said her heart was promised to
A midshipman from baltimore

He offered her his mansion
He offered her his gold
But she slipped away to a lonely place
With no man's hand to hold

Still sweet ophelia
I feel your love reach out
Across the miles of ocean
There can be no doubt

The lawyer's means were modest
He brought her danish wine
And an heirloom necklace of cultured
Pearls from down his family line

But all of his advances
Her heart was cold as stone
She said, "sir before i'd accept your gifts,
I'll walk these bowery streets alone"

Still sweet ophelia
I feel your love reach out
Across the miles of ocean
There can be no doubt

Still sweet ophelia
I feel your love reach out
Across the miles of ocean
There can be no doubt

Some say she died of fever
Up in her attic room
Some tell me that she hung herself
In a ?

I heard she sealed the windows
And never lit the stove
But i like to dream she drowned herself
On a ?

Still sweet ophelia
I feel your love reach out
Across the miles of ocean
There can be no doubt

Compositor: Barry Mann/cynthia Weil
