Girls: When Spring comes dancing over the hills,
With a fal-la-la and a fal-la-la-la-lay!
She calls the golden daffodils,
"Awake and dance all day."
With a fal-la-la and a fal-la-la-la-lay!
Awake and dance all day.
Sopranos: And breezes woo the violets blue,
Contraltos: And breezes woo the violets blue,
All: And merry bluebells ring;
To welcome laughing Spring!
With a fal-la-la and a fal-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la,
Fal-la-la-la-la-la!
Miss Thorne: So Chloe, grow bolder,
Trip over the leas!
Your snowy young shoulder
No snowflake will freeze!
And Phyllis; faint-hearted,
Come out in the sun;
The chill is departed,
The winter, the winter is done, is done!
Miss Rose: All your shepherd lovers
Have been waiting long,
Through the leafy covers
Calls the cuckoo's song!
Ringing down the hollow
From the trees above;
Maidens, if you follow
You may meet with Love!
Maidens, if you follow
You may meet with Love!
Girls: So bind your hair in daisy chains
With a fal-la-la and a fal-la-la-la-lay!
And come to meet your shepherd swains,
There is no more to say
With a fal-la-la and a fal-la-la-la-lay!
There is no more to say!
Each Shepherdess is crowned Princess,
Each Shepherdess is crowned Princess,
And ev'ry lad a King,
When Love is lord in Spring!
With a fal-la-la and a fal-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la,
Fal-la-la-la-la-la!
