Peter Dean – Merriment (Happiness Song) lyrics

Ever since I was a young, young lad I’ve wanted to entertain,
Learn a few old songs and hope luck comes my way,
Play the clubs, have some beer, dance the night away.
Merriment, merriment, every single day.

One day when I was playing good I met a maiden fair,
A flaxen-headed child was she with daisies in her hair,
We danced all day and all night long, we didn’t have a care.
Merriment, merriment, was in the air.

The maiden said to me one day when I was unaware:
“Why don’t you kiss my lips right now, run fingers through my hair?
Then marry me the next day, give me some children fair.
Merriment, merriment, I want you to share.”

I married her the next day under a brilliant moon,
We danced and danced the night away to a fiddle tune,
Then to bed we went, hand in hand, not a day too soon.
Merriment, merriment, all around the room.

Now children run around outside, my lover cares so well,
We play all day, singing songs, and ringing little bells,
Carefree joy we have in bounds, love has set us free.
Merriment, merriment, all over me.

Ever since I was a young, young lad I’ve wanted to entertain,
Learn a few old songs and hope luck comes my way,
I’ve played the clubs, had lots of fun, and married my maiden fair.
Merriment, merriment – I’ve had more than my fair share.
