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.

Valberi, Valdera, Valdera,
Valderi, Valdera,
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,
And blackbird call so loud and sweet,
From every greenwood tree.


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


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