Summer, with your genial noons;
Oh summer, with your golden moons:
Summer, with your skies of blue;
Summer, with your skies, with your skies of blue;

R.: Gladly will we welcome you!
Oh! Summer, with your skies of blue;
Oh! Summer, gladly will we welcome you!

Summer, with your leafy bowers;
Oh summer, with your heaps of flowers;
Softest showers ah heaps of flowers;
Open, airy happy hours.
