See the woods, see them green and gay;
See the hawthorn clad in the robes of May,
    Let us go to the bowers,
    And cull the fairest flowers;
Entwine them, entwin, and chant a roundelay.
    Fa-la-la!

Hear the birds, hear them sweetly sing;
And the bees all join to salute the Spring,
    Ere their carols are ended,
    Our voices shall be blended
In chorus till all the echoes ring.
    Fa-la-la!

All the day, music fills the vales;
While the insects glide on the balmy gales;
    And the rebecks are playing
    Where flocks and herds are straying;
All nature the golden season hails.
    Fa-la-la!
