Our darling wandered far away while she was out at play
Lost in the woods, she couldn't hear a sound
She was our darling girl, the sweetest thing in all the world
We searched for her but she couldn't be found

I heard the screams of our little girl far away
Hurry daddy here's an awful dreadful snake
I ran as fast as I could through the dark and dreary woods
But I reached our darling girl too late

Oh, I began to sigh I knew that soon she'd have to die
For the snake was warning me close by
I held her close to my face she said daddy kill that snake
It's getting dark tell mommy goodbye

I heard the screams of our little girl far away
Hurry daddy here's an awful dreadful snake
I ran as fast as I could through the dark and dreary woods
But I reached our darling girl too late

To all parents I must say don't let your children stray away
They need your love to guide them along
Oh, God I pray we'll see our darling some day
It seems I still hear her voice around our home

I heard the screams of our little girl far away
Hurry daddy here's an awful dreadful snake
I ran as fast as I could through the dark and dreary woods
But I reached our darling girl too late
