1. Dreamland by Corny Held  
3:40 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals

lyrics Oh, Dreamland, you lovely, you wonderful land,
you beautiful crown of all the lands and realms
And if I ever find I am in the Promised land,
I'd try to return to your magic elms
It's there I want to live, it's there you never die.
It's where the things are made and where new ideas are born
It's just the way you want, it is Paradise

It's there I want to live, it's there you never die.
It is where things are made and where new ideas are born
It's just the way you want, it is Paradise

Oh Dreamland, you mystical, neverending land
You rule what is real, with a subtle force.
Your trees and birds and mountains are always there at hand
Of peace, hope, and wisdom, you can be the source.
Your forests are the deepest, your sun burns hot or mild
Your strength is so unfailing, my wishing well, my mead
Your spirit rest and longing, it creates new life

Your oceans are the deepest, your creatures tame or wild
Providing me with power and just everything I need
Your time is a river that creates new life

2. The Water Is Wide by Corny Held  
3:05 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals

lyrics The water is wide, I can't cross o'er
Neither have I wings to fly
Give me a boat that can carry two
And both shall row, my love and I

A ship there is and she sails the sea
She's loaded deep as deep can be
But not as deep as the love I'm in
I know not if I sink or swim

I leaned my back against an oak
Thinking it was a mighty tree
But first it bent and then it broke
So did my love prove false to me

I reached my finger into some soft bush
Thinking the fairest flower to find
I pricked my finger to the bone
And left the fairest flower behind

Oh love be handsome and love be kind
A sparkling jewel when first it is new
But love grows old and waxes cold
And fades away like the morning dew

Must I go bound while you go free
Must I love a man who won't love me
Must I be born with so little art
As to love a man who'll break my heart

When cockle shells turn silver bells
Then will my love come back to me
When roses bloom in winter's gloom
Then will my love return to me.

3. Greensleeves by Corny Held  
3:14 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals

lyrics Alas, my love, but you do me wrong
To cast me off discourteously
For I have loved you so long
Delighting in your company

Greensleeves was all my joy
Greensleeves was my delight
Greensleeves was my heart of gold
And who but my Lady Greensleeves

I have been ready at your hand
To grant whatever you would crave
I have both waged life and land
Your love and goodwill for to have

Greensleeves was all my joy
Greensleeves was my delight
Greensleeves was my heart of gold
And who but my lady Greensleeves.

Your vows you've broken, like my heart,
Oh, why did you so enrapture me?
Now I remain in a world apart
But my heart remains in captivity.

Greensleeves was all my joy
Greensleeves was my delight,
Greensleeves was my heart of gold,
And who but my lady Greensleeves.

If you intend thus to disdain,
It does the more enrapture me,
And even so, I still remain
A lover in captivity.

Greensleeves was all my joy
Greensleeves was my delight,
Greensleeves was my heart of gold,
And who but my lady Greensleeves.

4. The Lambs On The Green Hills by Corny Held  
3:03 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals

lyrics The lambs on the green hills, they sport and they play
And many strawberries grow round the salt sea,
How sad is my heart when my love is away
How many's the ship sails the ocean.

The bride and bride's party to church they did go,
The bride she rode foremost, she bears the best show,
But I followed after with my heart full of woe
To see my love wed to another.

The first place I saw her was in the church stand
Gold rings on her finger and her love by the hand,
Says I, my wee lassie, I will be the man
Although you are wed to another.

The next place I saw her was on the way home,
I rode on before her, not knowing where to roam.
Says I, my wee lassie, I'll be by your side
Although you are wed to another.

Stop, stop, says the groomsman, till I speak a word
Will you venture your life on the point of my sword,
For courtin' so slowly you've lost this fair maid
So, be gone for you'll never enjoy her.

O make now my grave, both large, wide and deep
And sprinkle it over with flowers so sweet,
And lay me down in it to take my last sleep,
For that's the best way to forget her.

5. Red Is The Rose by Corny Held  
3:13 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals

lyrics Come over the hills my handsome Irish lad
Come over the hills to your darling
You choose the road love, and I'll make a vow
That I'll be your true love forever

Red is the rose that by yonder garden grows
And fair is the lily of the valley
Clear is the water that flows from the Boyne
But my love is fairer than any
Down by Killarneys green woods we did stray
The moon and the stars they were shining
The moon shone it's rays on his locks of golden hair
And he swore he'd be my love forever

Red is the rose that by yonder garden grows
And fair is the lily of the valley
Clear is the water that flows from the Boyne
But my love is fairer than any
It's not for the parting that my sister pains
It's not for the grief of my mother
It's all for the loss of my handsome Irish lad
Now my heart is broken forever

Red is the rose by yonder garden grows
And fair is the lily of the valley
Clear is the water that flows from the Boyne
But my love is fairer than any.

6. Danny Boy (a capella) by Corny Held  
2:57 min.  
(English)
Corny Held: vocals

lyrics Oh Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling
From glen to glen, and down the mountain side
The summer's gone, and all the flowers are dying
'Tis you, 'tis you must go and I must bide.
But come ye back when summer's in the meadow
Or when the valley's hushed and white with snow

'Tis I'll be here in sunshine or in shadow
Oh Danny boy, oh Danny boy, I love you so.

And if you come, when all the flowers are dying
And I am dead, as dead I well may be
You'll come and find the place where I am lying
And kneel and say an "Ave" there for me.

And I shall hear, tho' soft you tread above me
And all my dreams will warm and sweeter be
If you'll not fail to tell me that you love me
I'll simply sleep in peace until you come to me.
I'll simply sleep in peace until you come to me.
