Representative Text

1 In the shady woodlands,
Sweet it is to roam,
When in golden splendor
Summer days have come.

Refrain:
In the shady woodlands,
‘Mong the sylvan bow’rs,
Sweet it is to wander,
Spending happy hours.

2 ‘Mong the leafy treetops,
All the bright day long,
Joyous little wild birds
Flood the air with song. [Refrain]

3 There the laughing brooklets
Babble on their way,
Where cool reeds and willows
O’er their waters sway. [Refrain]

4 Soft wind-music murmurs
Through the forest aisles,
While glad woodland voices
Answer Summer’s smiles. [Refrain]
