Come and hasten to the dancing
Merry eyes will soon be glancing
Ha! my heart upbounds!
Come and dance a merry measure
Quaff the bright brown ale my treasure
Hark! what joyous sounds!
Sweet-heart come, on let us haste
On, on, no time let us waste
With my heart I love thee
Dance, dance, for rest we disdain
Turn twirl and spin round again
With my arm I hold thee!
Down the path the lights are gleaming
Friendly faces gladly beaming
Welcome us with song
Dancing makes the heart grow lighter
Makes the world and life grow brighter
As we dance along!
