VERSE: Come a-Maying,/Come a-straying,/Sweetheart o’mine!/Where through newborn glades of green,/Filt’ring sunbeams shine!/Where vi’lets and arbutus/Nod out of their rest./Oh, come seeking,/Oh, come peeking,/On a flow’ret quest.
CHORUS: We went Maying, we went straying,/Aye it is true!/All the vi’lets I could find/Bloomed in eyes of blue!/Rose pink of the arbutus,/In her cheeks aglow/Ah, ‘twas gladness, ah, ‘twas madness,/Flowering to go.
