W: W:Oh, Summer is coming, Oh, Summer is here W:With the leaves on the trees and the skies blue and clear W:And the small birds are singing their fond notes so true W:And the flowers they are springing in the May morning dew. W: W:The house I was reared in is but a stone on a stone W:And all round the garden wild thistles have grown W:And all the fine neighbours that ever I knew W:Like the red rose they withered in the May morning dew. W: W:God be with the old folks, who are all dead and gone W:And likewise my two brothers, young Denis and John W:As we ran through the heather, the wild hare to pursue W:As their joys they were mingled in the May morning dew
