Away and away on the wings of the wind, Away and away so free. Away and away on the wings of the wind, Over the land and sea. Over the houses, over the steeple, Over the streets and the gossiping people; Hurrying, hurrying, over the town; Over the valley, over the down... Over the mountains, and over the hills, Over the river, and over the rills. Over the hedges with wild roses blowing, Over the meadows where young men are mowing. Over the pastures of beautiful clover; Over the lane where lovers are meeting, (He is her swain and she is his sweeting!) Over and over, over and over... Away and away on the wings of the wind, Away and away so free. Away, away, away, away...
