When do we journey down to town?
If rough or fine, if rain or shine,
When do we smooth our wrinkles out?
When do we nurse our corns and gout?
When do we heal our wounds and smarts?
When do we make our pies and tarts?
When do the children loudest shout?
When bring the choicest playthings out?
When do we take our trips and jaunts?
When do we gather fruits and flower,
And spend our happy half-day hours,
In shady lanes and mossy bowers?
