    cat stevens'ın yusuf islam olmadan önceki bestelerindendir. steven'ın keder yüklü saman sarısı sesi bu şarkıyla insanın içine işler. 1970 yılında yayınlanan Mona Bone Jakon albümünde bulunur. şarkıdaki metafor nedeniyle çeşitli hikayeler uydurulmuştur. oysa ki sözlerde belirtildiği gibi ölmüş sevgiliye değil, kendisini mick jagger'a tercih edip evi terk eden ve henüz 19 yaşında, modellik kariyerinin zirvesinde olan sevgilisi patti d'arbanville'in ardından yazılmıştır. patti ise ölümünü anlatan bu şarkıyı ilk kez radyoda duyup şok olmuştur.

    "Steven wrote that song "Lady D'Arbanville" when i left for New York. i left for a month, it wasn't the end of the world was it? But he wrote this whole song about "Lady D'Arbanville, why do you sleep so still." it's about me dead. So while i was in New York, for him it was like i was lying in a coffin... He wrote that because he missed me, because he was down... it's a sad song"

    bu da kendisinin son hali:
    2017
    evet hala yaşıyor...

    sözler:

    My Lady d'Arbanville, why do you sleep so still?
    i'll wake you tomorrow
    and you will be my fill, yes, you will be my fill.

    My Lady d'Arbanville why does it grieve me so?
    But your heart seems so silent.
    Why do you breathe so low, why do you breathe so low,

    My Lady d'Arbanville why do you sleep so still?
    i'll wake you tomorrow
    and you will be my fill, yes, you will be my fill.

    My Lady d'Arbanville, you look so cold tonight.
    Your lips feel like winter,
    your skin has turned to white, your skin has turned to white.

    My Lady d'Arbanville, why do you sleep so still?
    i'll wake you tomorrow
    and you will be my fill, yes, you will be my fill.

    La la la la la....

    My Lady d'Arbanville why does it grieve me so?
    But your heart seems so silent.
    Why do you breathe so low, why do you breathe so low,

    i loved you my lady, though in your grave you lie,
    i'll always be with you
    This rose will never die, this rose will never die.

    i loved you my lady, though in your grave you lie,
    I'll always be with you
    This rose will never die, this rose will never die.
