When was it ever a waste of time to climb hills? When was it ever a useless thing to sing the song of a long jolly day in the sun? Mmmmm Lo! Deedelee dee, deedelee dee, Lo! All of us, ev'ry one of us has something to sing about, to sing and shout, to sing and shout! Lo! Deedelee dee, deedelee dee, Lo!
