The Weeping Willow Tree
The Weeping Willow Tree is a Handkerchief Dance and is one of the dances which includes singing.
The dance starts with the set singing the verse and chorus;
"Oh, once they said my lips were red and now they're scarlet pale.
Oh, I was a silly girl to believe his flattering tale.
(Chorus) He vowed he'd never deceive me; I like a silly believed he.
The moon and stars they shone so bright
Over the willow tree."
With each chorus the dancers mime weeping whilst singing the chorus.
