  • It was many and many a year ago
    In a kingdom by the sea
    That a maiden lived whom you may know
    By the name of Annabel Lee

    This maiden she lived with no other thought
    Than to love and be loved by me
    She was a child and I was a child
    In this kingdom by the sea

    But we loved with a love that was more than love
    I and my Annabel Lee
    With a love that the winged angels of Heaven
    They coveted her and me

    And the moon never beams, without bringing me dreams
    And the sun never shines, but I see the bright eyes
    I lie down by the side

    The angels, not half so happy in Heaven
    Went envying her and me
    That was the reason, as all men know
    In this kingdom by the sea
    That the wind came out of the clouds that night
    Killing my, my Annabel Lee

    And the moon never beams, without bringing me dreams
    And the sun never shines, but I see the bright eyes
    I lie down by the side

    But our love was stronger by far than the love
    Of those who were older than we
    Many far wiser than we
    Neither the angels in Heaven above
    Nor the demons down under the sea
    Can ever dissever my soul from the soul
    Of the beautiful Annabel Lee

    And the moon never beams, without bringing me dreams
    And the sun never shines, but I see the bright eyes
    I lie down by the side
    Ohhh ohh

    I lie down by the side
    Of my darling, my life, my life and my bride
    I lie down, by her side
    I lie down, by her side
    My darling, my life, my life and my bride
    I lie down, by her side
    I lie down, by her side oohh
    I lie down, by the side oohh
    I lie down, by the side
    Of my darling, my life, my life and my bride
    I lie down, ohhhh
    I lie down by the side
    Of my darling, my life, my life and my bride
    I lie down by the side
    Of my darling, my life, my life and my bride
    I lie down oooooh
    I lie down lie down
