Spring's delights are now returning,
Blooming flow'rets scent the vale,
And within her leafy shelter,
Plaintive sings the nightingale;
Lovely nature seems rejoicing,
Newly shoots each leaf and blade;
Ev'ry shepherd swain grows bolder,
Gentler ev'ry shepherd maid.

Winter drear will overtake us,
Spring's delights be past and gone,
Soon our youth in age shall vanish,
And our little life be done.
Come then, sweetest, fairest, dearest,
Lose no time by saying no,
To the meadows broad and verdant,
Let us both a-maying go.
