THE LIGHT-HEARTED FAIRY

[22]

Oh, who is so merry, so merry, heigh ho!

As the light-hearted fairy, heigh ho,

Heigh ho!

He dances and sings

To the sound of his wings,

With a hey, and a heigh, and a ho!


Oh, who is so merry, so airy, heigh ho!

As the light-headed fairy, heigh ho,

Heigh ho!

His nectar he sips

From the primroses' lips,

With a hey, and a heigh, and a ho!


Oh, who is so merry, so merry, heigh ho!

As the light-footed fairy, heigh ho,

Heigh ho!

His night is the noon,

And his sun is the moon,

With a hey, and a heigh, and a ho!

Nursery Rhyme.
