Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Based on the Scottish/English Ballad "Once I Had a True Love" (c1729). Parody based on the character Meiling Li from the Cardcaptor Sakura Anime Series.
As Meiling sat a-weeping down by the seaside,
As Meiling sat a-weeping down by the seaside,
What ails you my lotus, what ails you my lotus,
What ails you my lotus, that do cause you to cry?

Because I'm uneasy and troubled in mind,
Because I'm uneasy and troubled in mind,
There's no joy in Hong Kong, there's no joy in Hong Kong,
There's no joy in Hong Kong that now I can find.

Once I had a true love but now I have none,
Once I had a true love but now I have none,
Since Shaoran has left me, since Shaoran has left me,
Since Shaoran has left me I'll never have one.

Last night in sweet slumber I dreamed I did see,
Last night in sweet slumber I dreamed I did see,
My own desired Shaoran, my own desired Shaoran,
My own desired Shaoran sit smiling by me.

I'll fly out to Japan and Tomoeda,
I'll fly out to Japan and Tomoeda,
In hopes for to find, in hopes for to find,
In hopes for to find my dear Shaoran again.

There's none that shall know of the vows that I make,
There's none that shall know of the vows that I make,
A couple red ribbons, a couple red ribbons,
A couple red ribbons I'll wear for his sake.

And when, in the shrine, in my grave I am laid,
And when, in the shrine, in my grave I am laid,
They'll say I've been constant, they'll say I've been constant,
They'll say I've been constant to my Shaoran dear.
