Climbing Over Rocky Mountain

Climbing over rocky mountain,
Skipping rivulet and fountain,
Passing where the willows quiver
By the ever-rolling river,
Swollen with the summer rain,
The summer rain.
Threading long and leafy mazes
Dotted with unnumbered daisies,
Dotted, dotted with unnumbered daisies;
Scaling rough and rugged passes,
Climb the hardy little lasses,
Till the bright sea-shore they gain!
Scaling rough and rugged passes,
Climb the hardy little lasses,
Till the bright sea-shore they gain!

Edith.
Let us gaily tread the measure,
Make the most of fleeting leisure,
Hail it as a true ally,
Though it perish by-and-by.
.
Hail it as a true ally,
Though it perish by-and-by.
Edith.
Every moment brings a treasure
Of its own especial pleasure;
Though the moments quickly die,
Greet them gaily as they fly,
Greet them gaily as they fly.
.
Though the moments quickly die,
Greet them gaily as they fly. Kate.
Far away from toil and care,
Revelling in fresh sea-air,
Here we live and reign alone
In a world that′s all our own.
Here, in this our rocky den,
Far away from mortal men,
We'll be queens, and make decrees -
They may honour them who please.
.
We′ll be queens, and make decrees -
They may honour them who please. Let us gaily tread the measure,
Make the most of fleeting leisure,
Hail it as a true ally,
Though it perish by-and-by.
Hail it as a true ally,
Though it perish by-and-by.
Let us gaily tread the measure,
Make the most of fleeting leisure,
Hail it as a true ally,
A true ally.
