1. Improve the passing hours, For time is on the wing.
Sip honey from the flowers, And merrily, merrily sing.
All folly ends in sadness, For trouble it will bring.
But wisdom leads to gladness So merrily, merrily sing.
2. Repine not if from labor Your health and comfort spring.
Work hard and help your neighbor, And merrily, merrily sing.
Store not your mind with folly, To truth your homage bring.
Do all the good you’re able And merrily, merrily sing.
