Happy Wanderer

I love to go a-wandering
Along the mountain track,
And as I go, I love to sing,
My knapsack on my back.

Cho: Val da ree, Val da rah
     Val da ree, Val da rah ha ha ha ha ha
     Val da ree, Val da rah
     My knapsack on my back.

I love to wander by the stream
That dances in the sun
So joyously it calls to me,
Come join my happy song.

I wave my hat to all I meet
And they wave back to me.
The bluebird calls so loud and sweet
From every greenwood tree.

High overhead the skylarks wing,
They never rest at home,
But just like me they love to sing
As o'er the world we roam.

Oh, may I go a-wandering
Until the day I die
Oh, may I always laugh and sing
Beneath God's clear blue sky!
