Thank you gentle ladies,
Thank you gentle men.
Now our concert comes to an end.

Songs of sadness,
Songs of gladness,
Songs our humble muse to attend.

Music is our joy and delight,
Music lilting, tuneful and bright,
Music rhythmic, jolly or mad,
Music willing hearts to be glad.
Fa la la la.

Songs of sadness
Fa la la la la,
Songs of gladness,
Fa la la la la.
