Theres a mill standing by the water
In the Fair land of Normandy
It was there that the millers daughter
Used to dream lonely as can be

She used to look just like a book without a cover
She used to sigh, Oh me, oh my, where is my lover?
Then one day, while the wheel was turning,
Came the boy she was dreaming of.
Very soon, both their hearts were yearning
Very soon, they were both in love.

And the wheel kept turning around
It didnt care; it didnt worry
The wheel kept turning around
And all day long, it sang the Windmill Song

Days went by, life was very merry
In the fair land of Normandy
Sunny skies may be necessary
But sometimes, raindrops we can see

Like every song, this little song contains a moral
That perfect love is not above a lovers quarrel
For one day, angry words were spoken.
Boy and girl parted tearfully
Sad to say, both their hearts were broken
By that mill, down in Normandy

But the wheel kept turning around
It didnt care; it didnt worry
The wheel kept turning around
And all day long, it sang the windmill song

Fate was strong, but their love was stronger
In the fair land of Normandy
They could not hold out any longer
They were both lonely as can be

The girl and boy could not enjoy the summer weather
They wondered when their hearts again would be together
Oh one day, there was joy and laughter
(Wedding bells rang in Normandy)

And they lived, happily ever after
By the mill with their family
And the wheel kept turning around
It didnt care; it didnt worry
The wheel kept turning around
And all day long, it sang the windmill song
