From Brooks' first set of glees, printed in London and Bath, c.1796.
Lyrics: Anon

Through verdant plains and flow'ry fields,
Where nature all her sweetness yields,
Our fleecy flock, that fain would stray,
We watch with pleasing care each day.
Whilst pipe and flute, in merry glee,
Sound notes of sweetest melody.
With a fa la la la la.


At close of day, when labour's o'er,
Our evening joys return once more;
Each lad and lass of sprightly mien
With cheerful look trip o'er the green.
Whilst pipe and flute, in merry glee,
Sound notes of sweetest melody.
With a fa la la la la.
