When spring is smiling o’er meadows fair,
Come to the woods, Away!
When hawthorne buds perfume the air,
Come to the woods, Away!
Come out this glad May morning,
The world is fresh and gay,
And leaf, and bud, and blossom
Proclaim the lovely May.
Come out, Come out, ’Tis May!
And join our roundelay.
Come out, Come out,
Where zephyrs soft are playing,
And lilacs nod in gay delight,
Come let us go a-maying.
Down by the forest,
’Mid the leafy shadows,
In and out the sunbeams play,
Dancing, dancing merrily;
Tender grasses wrap the earth,
Blossoms tremble into birth,
’Tis the hour for joy and mirth;
Come out, ’Tis May!
Down by the forest,
’Mid the leafy shadows,
In and out the sunbeams play,
Dancing. dancing merrily;
In the branches swinging,
Birds are gaily singing,
’Tis the home for mirth and joy,
Come out, ’Tis May!
