One evening for pleasure I rambled to view
the fair fields all alone,
down by the banks of Loch Erin where 
beauty and pleasure were known.

I spied a fair maid at her labor 
which caused me to stay for a while;
I thought her the goddess of beauty, 
the blooming bright star of Belle Isle.

I humbled myself to her beauty: 
"Fair maiden, where do you be long?
Are you from the heavens descended, 
abiding in Cupid's fair throng?"

"Young man I will tell you a secret.
It's true I'm a maid that is poor,
and to part from my vows and my promise
is more than my heart can endure.

"Therefore I'll remain at my service
and go through all hardship and toil,
and wait for the lad that has left me
alone on the banks of Belle Isle."

"Young maiden, I wish not to banter;
'tis true I come here in disguise.
I came to fulfill my last promise,
and hoped to give you a surprise."

"I Own you're the maid I love dearly;
you've been in my heart all the while.
For me there is no other damsel
than the blooming bright star of Bell Isle,
the blooming bright star of Belle Isle,
the blooming bright star of Belle Isle.
