Original text and translations

English.png English text

On the plains, fairy trains were atreading measures,
Satyrs play'd, fairies stay'd, at the stops set leisures.
Fa la la.
Nymphs begin to come in quickly, thick and three-fold:
Now they dance, now they prance, present there to behold.
Fa la la.
