lyrics

Summer’s here again
Men are working
We hear them coming in
Through the meadow

Labouring we’ve been
Through the day
And labouring again
We’ll be tomorrow

Now to dream of Cockaigne
Fatted land of leisure.
The laying off of pain
The taking up of pleasure

When the summer’s passed
We’ll have our time back
Then a turn of the wheel
Will have us fighting

I’ve got two are strong,
Lord save the other
From the snow & the filth
And from the hunger

Now to dream of Cockaigne
Fatted land of leisure.
The laying off of pain
The taking up of pleasure
