The hawthorn buds begin to blow,
The cuckoo's notes proclaim the spring;
Now pleasure smiles where e'er we go,
And rustic maids and shepherds sing.

Then come Louisa to the grove,
And share the joys of jocund spring;
Cheer'd by friendship, blest by love,
With rustic maids and shepherds sing.
Tol de rol lol lol.
