Webbe's harmonization of a traditional tune.
Lyrics: Jacob

When rosy May comes in wi' flow'rs
To deck her gay green spreading bow'rs,
Then busy, busy are his hours,
The gard'ner wi' his paidle.
The crystal waters gently fa'
The merry birds are lovers a',
The sweetest breezes round him blaw,
The gard'ner wi' his paidle.

When purple morning starts the hare
To steal upon her early fare,
Then through the dews he maun repair,
The gard'ner wi' his paidle.
When day, expiring in the west,
The curtain draws o' nature's rest,
He flies to her arms he lo'es best,
The gard'ner wi' his paidle.
