O the sweet contentment The countryman doth find! Heigh trolollie lollie loe, Heigh trolollie lee, That quiet contemplation Possesseth all my mind: Then care away, And wend along with me. For courts are full of flattery, As hath too oft been tried; Heigh trolollie lollie loe, etc. The city full of wantonness, And both are full of pride: Then care away, etc. But oh! The honest countryman Speaks truly from his heart, Heigh trolollie lollie loe, etc. His pride is in his tillage, His horses, and his cart: Then care away, etc. Our clothing is good sheep-skins, Gray russet for our wives, Heigh trolollie lollie loe, etc. 'Tis warmth, and not gay clothing, That doth prolong our lives: Then care away, etc. The ploughman, though he labor hard, Yet on the holiday, Heigh trolollie lollie loe, etc. No emperor so merrily Does pass his time away: Then care away, etc. To recompense our tillage, The heavens afford us showers; Heigh trolollie lollie loe, etc. And for our sweet refreshmentsThe earth affords us bowers: Then care away, etc. The cuckoo and the nightingale Full merrily do sing, Heigh trolollie lollie loe, etc. And with their pleasant roundelays Bid welcome to the spring: Then care away, etc. This is not half the happinessThe countryman enjoys; Heigh trolollie lollie loe, Heigh trolollie lee, Though others think they have as much, Yet he that says so lies: Then come away, turn Countryman with me. ; B&W Illustrations; 163 pages; 1.
