Lyrics


Verse 1
There were three sisters walked through the trees 
Rose, Marie and Heather 
When they chanced upon a lady so fine 
And she was the Queen of the fairies 
The sisters were holding a party that night 
Rose, Marie and Heather 
But the lady was clever and blocked their path 
And she was the Queen of the fairies 

Verse 2


The Queen beckoned the eldest one in 
Away from her sisters a-waiting 

‘For you I would give all the gold in the land,
 send away your worries and caring’ 
‘No thank you good Queen,’ the eldest one said, ‘I have enough to be happy’ 
And the sisters walked on to the edge of the trees 
On the way home to the party 

Verse 3
The Queen beckoned the middle one in 
Away from her sisters a-waiting 
‘For you I would give all the praise in the land, 
they would finally all see you shining’ 
‘No thank you good Queen,’ the middle one said, 
‘I prefer my quieter life here’ 
And the sisters walked on to the foot of the hill 
On the way home to the party 

Verse 4
The Queen beckoned the youngest one in 
Away from her sisters a-waiting 
‘For you I’d give power over both of them, 
they’d finally bow down before you’ 
‘No thank you good Queen,’ the youngest one said, 
‘I’m happy as I am’ 
And the sisters climbed up to the top of the hill 
On the way home to the party 

Verse 5
There were three sisters walked through the fields 
Rose, Marie and Heather 
Away from the fairy Queen’s lonely schemes 

Journeying home together 
The sisters held their party that night
Rose, Marie and Heather 
With laughter and music and fruits of the field 
Glad to be together
