Lyrics

Oh Eve
Aine Minogue

Oh Eve, I have seen you evenings strolling on your way
Oh Eve, holding hands with strangers, anecdotes and tales
Have you chosen fruits to multiply?
Have you chosen fish to fry?
Oh Eve, on your way

Oh Eve, we have waited all the days
Oh Eve, mother cries and father prays
You seem the strangest girl as you walk on down the lane
You know you shouldn't wear your hair so loose when it makes a train
Oh Eve, Come on now, come on, sometimes a girl looks plain
Eve, on your way


Oh Eve, The women turned down by the rivers edge
Eve, drawing water for the childrens’ well
Could you tell me, the story of the time
when the Gods pledged love to you, and me, and all mankind
Eve, come back from the water's edge
Eve, All is Well. All is Well. All is Well
