We happy shepherd swains,
Now leave till morn the mountain side,
To sport upon the village plains,
With each his nymph at eventide.

Hand in hand we dance and sing,
Round the russet fairy ring,
Or up-on th'enamell'd green,
Still our joyous mirth is seen,

Fa la la la la la la,la.
Till the knell of fading light,
When we part with sweet good night.
