Lyrics: Anon

Come, ye party jangling swains,
Leave your flocks and quit the plains;
Friends to country, friends to court,
Nothing here shall spoil your sport.
Ever welcome to our feast,
Welcome ev'ry friendly guest.


Sprightly widows, come away,
Laughing dames and virgins gay;
Little gaudy fluttering misses,
Smiling hopes of future blisses.
Ever welcome to our feast,
Welcome ev'ry friendly guest.


All tha rip'ning sun can bring,
Beauteous summer, beauteous spring;
In one varying scene we show
The green, the ripe, the bud, the blow.
Ever welcome to our feast,
Welcome ev'ry friendly guest.


Comus jesting, music charming,
Wine inspiring, beauty warming;
Rage and party malice dies,
Peace returns and discord flies.
Ever welcome to our feast,
Welcome ev'ry friendly guest.
