The Spring, the pleasant Spring is blown,
Let us leave the smoky town,
From the mall and from the ring
Ev'ry one has taken wing;
Cloe, Strephon, Corydon,
All are fled and all are gone;
What is left's not worth your stay.
Come Aurelia, come away.

Come with all thy sweetest smiles,
With thy graces, with the wiles,
Come and we will merry be,
Who shall be so blest as we.
We will frolic all the day,
Harming no-one in our play;
No matter what the people say,
Come Aurelia, come away.
