We'll Sing to Abe Our Song


For an English translation, see en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Annie_Laurie
. This was a popular song during Lincoln's time, and may have been one of his favorites.

ANNIE LAURIE

Maxwelton ci es kali ko proto mana pluvi;
So la mi Annie Laurie pa dona u promise,
Pa dona u promise e pan-kron memo id.
Plus a kali Annie Laurie mi fu don a fe mi bio.

Fe fronta feno nivi, fe kola es de cignus,
Fe facia maxi kali, qi es in holo Geo,
Qi es in holo Geo, fe oku es ciano.
Plus a kali Annie Laurie mi fu don a fe mi bio.

A flor u pluvi kade, e so fe gresu soni;
Estiva venti moti, e so fe gluko voka,
E so fe gluko voka.  Fe es mi holo Geo.
Plus a kali Annie Laurie mi fu don a fe mi bio.
