CLEMENTINE
Westlife


In a cavern down by a canyon
Excavatin' for a mine
A-there lived a miner from North Carolina
And his daughter chubby Clementine

N'every mornin', hey just about dawnin'
A'when the sun BEGAN to shine
You know she would rouse up wake all a them cows up
And walk 'em down to her Daddy's mine

She took the foot bridge way 'cross the water
Though she weighed two-ninety nine
The old bridge trembled and disassembled
(Oops!) dumped her into the foamy brine

Hey, crackle like thunder, (ho, ho) you know she went under
(ho, ho) blowin bubbles down the line
Hey, I'm no swimm'a but were she slimm'a
I might'a saved that Clementine

(Hey) broke the record way under water
I thought that she was doin' fine
I wasn't nervous until the service
That they held for Clementine

Hey you sailor (ho, ho) way out in your whaler
With a harpoon your trusty line
If she shows now, yeah, there she blows now
It just may be chunky Clementine

(One more time)
Oh my darlin', oh my darlin', oh my darlin'
Oh my darlin' , oh my darlin' sweet Clementine
You may be gone
But!
You're not forgotten,
Fare thee well
So long Clementine
Bye!
