Representative Text

1 Hail to the merry, merry spring-time!
That gladdens every heart
With rays of glowing sunshine
That bids our cares depart.

2 Hail to the merry, merry spring-time!
That brings to life each tree,
Whose heart has scorned the wintry blast,
Again to blossom free.

Chorus:
Hail to the merry, merry spring-time!
That gladdens every heart
With rays of glowing sunshine
That bids our cares depart.

3 Hail to the merry, merry spring-time!
That tunes each warbler's voice
To pipe again the will-known lay
That makes us all rejoice.

4 Hail to the merry, merry spring-time!
Sweet season of the year,
That drives away the winter's frosts
And bids the flowers appear. [Chorus]

5 Come, tune your voice and sing aloud
A welcome to the spring;
Till every hill and dale resounds
The chorus that we sing.

6 Hail to the merry, merry spring-time!
Let old and young sing out
A welcome to the spring-time,
And join our merry sport. [Chorus]
