Rose, Marie and Heather
(G. Gothard, W. Gothard, S. Gothard)

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



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

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

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

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
