March. Enter King Paramount, attended by guards and nobles, and preceded by girls dancing before him.

Chorus.
La, la, la, la,
La, la, la, la,
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la , la, la.
Quaff the nectar, cull the roses —
Gather fruit and flowers in plenty!
For our king no longer poses —
Sing the songs of far niente!
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la,
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la,
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la.
Wake the lute that sets us lilting,
Dance a welcome to each comer;
Day by day our year is wilting —
Sing the sunny songs of summer!
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la,
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la!
Sing the sunny songs of summer!
Percy Anderson's design for the proposed revival, 1920s
