Lyrics
O sweet is the smile on the beautiful morn
As it peeps through the curtain of night
And the voice of the nightingale singing its tune
While the stars seem to smile with delight

Oh nature now lingers in silent repose
And sweet breath of summer has come
While I sit and I wonder if Seamus he knows,
How sad and unhappy I am.

Chorus:
Oh Seamus O’Brien why don’t you come home
For you don’t know how happy I’ll be
I have but one wish and that is that you’ll come
And forever be happy with me.

I’ll smile when you smile and I’ll weep when you weep
I’ll give you a kiss for a kiss
And all the fond vows that I’ve made you I’ll keep
What more can I promise than this?

Does the sea have such bright and beautiful charms
That your heart will not leave it for me?
Oh why did I let you get out of my arms
Like a bird that was caged and is free.

Chorus:
Oh Seamus O’Brien why don’t you come home
For you don’t know how happy I’ll be
I have but one wish and that is that you’ll come
And forever be happy with me.

Oh Seamus O’Brien I’m loving you yet
My heart is still trusting and kind
It was you first took it and now you forget
And a love for another you’ll find

Now I know if you break it, would so pain
I’ll then have a duty to do
If you bring it to me then I’ll mend it again
And trust it, dear Seamus, to you.

Chorus:
Oh Seamus O’Brien why don’t you come home
For you don’t know how happy I’ll be
I have but one wish and that is that you’ll come
And forever be happy with me.
