Back

The 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. Chorus: Val-de-ri--Val-de-ra- Val-de-ri--Val-de ha ha ha ha ha ha Val-de-ri--Val-de-ra. 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!" Chorus: Val-de-ri--Val-de-ra- Val-de-ri--Val-de ha ha ha ha ha ha Val-de-ri--Val-de-ra. My knapsack on my back. I wave my hat to all I meet, And they wave back to me, And blackbirds call so loud and sweet From ev'ry green-wood tree. Chorus: Val-de-ri--Val-de-ra- Val-de-ri--Val-de ha ha ha ha ha ha Val-de-ri--Val-de-ra. My knapsack on my back. 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. Chorus: Val-de-ri--Val-de-ra- Val-de-ri--Val-de ha ha ha ha ha ha Val-de-ri--Val-de-ra. My knapsack on my back. Oh, may I go a-wandering Until the day I die! Oh may I always laugh and sing Beneath God's clear blue sky! Chorus: Val-de-ri--Val-de-ra- Val-de-ri--Val-de ha ha ha ha ha ha Val-de-ri--Val-de-ra. My knapsack on my back.
