I once had a love and oh…
I loved her very dearly
She told me she loved me so
I thought she spoke sincerely

But one day, away
I found that she had flown
And off to find that love of mine
I set alone

Looking high, high, high, looking low, low, low
Wondering why, why, why did she go, go, go?
For if I, I, I don’t find my love, I know
I shall die, die, die, ’cause I love her so

I journeyed across the sea
I sought her with devotion
Oh, where she could really be?
I’ve not the slightest notion

But so bright the light
of love within me shone
I knew full well, what e’er befell
I must go on

Looking high, high, high, looking low, low, low
Wondering why, why, why did she go, go, go?
For if I, I, I don’t find my love, I know
I shall die, die, die ’cause I love her so

Due east over desert sands
Due west where grass is greener
I asked in a dozen lands
But none had ever seen her

It was clear, I fear
My quest was all in vain
So I departed, sad at heart
For home again

Looking high, high, high, looking low, low, low
Wondering why, why, why did she go, go, go?
For if I, I, I don’t find my love, I know
I shall die, die, die ’cause I love her so

But when I arrived, all brown
And tanned by wind and weather
You sure could have knocked me down
With the proverbial feather

She stood there, so fair
And sweetly she confessed
That she’d been wrong and all along
She’d loved me best

I’d looked high, high, high, I’d looked low, low, low
Wondering why, why, why did she go, go, go?
Now that I, I, I have found my love, I know
Till I die, die, die, I will love her so

(Looking high, high, high, looking low, low, low)
(Wondering why, why, why did she go, go, go?)
For if I, I, I don’t find my love, I know
I shall die, die, die ’cause I love her so
(Looking high, high, high)
