1  Roaming through the meadows,
Lingering by the stream,
While the laughing waters
Woo each sunny beam!
Dark eyes brightly glancing
'Neath the boughs of green,
Joyously we're dancing
Round our Gipsy Queen!
Tra la la,
 While the laughing waters
Woo each sunny beam!
Tra la la.

2  Glad birds gaily singing,
'Mid the waving trees!
Village joy-bells ringing,
Gaily on the breeze!
All the green earth smiling,
'Neath the buds of spring,
Sunny hours beguiling,
Merrily we sing,
 Tra la la,
 While the laughing waters
Woo each sunny beam!
Tra la la.
