Now gladsome Spring is coming,
And flowerets sweet are springing.
Fa la la la la la la.

While Nature shows her face,
Bedecked with every grace.
Fa la la la la la la.

The Spring, clad all in gladness,
Doth laugh at Winter’s sadness.
Fa la la la la la la.

And many a blossom gay
Lies strewed along her way.
Fa la la la la la la.

While earth her voice upraises
To sing her welcome praises.
Fa la la la la la la.

We join our cheerful day,
And chant our roundelay.
Fa la la la la la la.
