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

There grows a flower on ev'ry bough,
Sing heigh-ho! Sing heigh-ho!
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! Sing heigh-ho!
ach 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! Sing heigh-ho!
They court from morn till eventide;
The earth shall pass, but love abide,
Sing heigh-ho! and heigh-ho1
Young maids must marry.
