Sing Heigh-Ho!

There sits a bird on every tree;
———Sing heigh-ho!
There sits a bird on every tree,
And courts his love as I do thee;
———Sing heigh-ho, and heigh-ho!
——Young maids must marry.

There grows a flower on every bough;
———Sing heigh-ho!
There grows a flower on every bough,
Its petals kiss—I'll show you how:
———Sing heigh-ho, and heigh-ho!
——Young maids must marry.

From sea to stream the salmon roam;
———Sing heigh-ho!
From sea to stream the salmon roam;
Each finds a mate and leads her home;
———Sing heigh-ho, and heigh-ho!
——Young maids must marry.

The sun's a bridegroom, earth a bride;
———Sing heigh-ho!
They court from morn till eventide:
The earth shall pass, but love abide.
———Sing heigh-ho, and heigh-ho!
——Young maids must marry.
