Etiam pulvinar consectetur dolor sed malesuada. Ut convallis euismod dolor nec pretium. Nunc ut tristique massa.

Nam sodales mi vitae dolor ullamcorper et vulputate enim accumsan. Morbi orci magna, tincidunt vitae molestie nec, molestie at mi. Nulla nulla lorem, suscipit in posuere in, interdum non magna.

CLEMENTINE

In a cavern in a canyon, excavating for a mine

Dwelt a miner, forty-nine, and his daughter Clementine.

Light she was and like a fairy, and her shoes were number nine

Herring boxes without topses, sandals were for Clementine

Refrain

Oh my darlin’, oh my darlin’, oh my darlin’ Clementine,

You are lost and gone forever, dreadful sorry Clementine.

Drove she ducklings to the water every morning just at nine,

Hit her foot against a splinter, fell into the foamy brine.

Ruby lips above the water, blowing bubbles soft and fine

But alas, I was no swimmer, so I lost my Clementine.

(repeat Refrain)

Then the mine, forty-niner, soon began to peak and pine,

Thought he oughta join his daughter, now he’s with his Clementine

(repeat Refrain)

In my dreams she still doth haunt me, broken garments soaked in brine,

Though in life I used to hug her, now she’s dead, I draw the line.

(repeat Refrain)
