W:The east is bright with morning light, And darkness it is fled; W:And the merrie horne wakes up the morne To leave his idle bed. W: W:2 W:Behold the skies with golden dyes Are glowing all around; W:The grasse is greene, and so are the treen, All laughing at the sound. W:The horses snort to join the sport, The dogges are running free W:The woddes rejoice at all the noise Of hey tantara tee ree! W: W:3 W:The sunne is glad to see us clad All in our lustie greene, W:And smiles in th’ sky as he riseth hye To see and to be seene. W:Awake, all men, I say agen, be merrie as you maye, W:For Harry our king has gone hunting, to bring his deere to bay
