Gentlemen in England now abed
Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
Upon Saint Crispin's day
Fought was this noble fray,
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers.
For he today that sheds his blood with me
Tomorrow is Saint Valentine's day,
All in the morning betime,
And I a maid at your window,
To be your Valentine.
O Paddy dear, an' did ye hear the news that's goin' round?
The shamrock is by law forbid to grow on Irish ground!
Study me then, you who shall lovers be
At the next world, that is, at the next spring:
From Harmony, from heavenly Harmony
This universal Frame began:
So, when the last and dreadful Hour
This crumbling Pageant shall devour,
The soft complaining FLUTE
In dying Notes discovers
He that shall see this day and live old age
Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbors
