Savoyard-Page131.png

LIFE IS LOVELY ALL THE YEAR.

WHERE the buds are blossoming,
Smiling welcome to the spring,
Lovers choose a wedding day—
Life is love in merry May!

Spring is green—Fal lal la!
Summer's rose—Fal lal la!
It is sad when Summer goes,
Fal la!
Autumn's gold—Fal lal la!
Winter's grey—Fal lal la!
Winter still is far away—
Fal la!

Leaves in Autumn fade and fall;
Winter is the end of all.
Spring and summer teem with glee;
Spring and summer, then, for me!
Fal la!
