Climbing over Rocky Mountains

Climbing over rocky mountain,
Skipping rivulet and fountain,
Passing where the weeping willows quiver
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!

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.
