Tripping Down the Sunny Lane.
Copyright, 1884 by Russell Brothers.
Words by A. W. French. Music by J. L. Gilbert.

Tripping down the sunny lane comes my little darling,
Laughing to the sweet refrain of the thrush and starling;
'Mid the bloom of white and gold fairy footsteps creeping,
Nearer to the oak tree old loves own tryst is keeping.

Ah, ah, ah, ah,
Softly sing your sweet refrain, happy thrush and starling;
Tripping down the sunny lane comes my little darling.

Dancing on her sunny way, where each flow'ret lingers,
With their blossom, bud and spray, kissed by sunbeam's lingers;
Never maid so dear to me in this wide world over;
Just as sweet us sweet can be, wand'ring in the clover.-Chorus.

Merrily the flitting birds sing among the daisies.
Never sweeter than the words of my tender praises;
Ruby lips are pressed to mine; side by side we wander
Till the stars of heaven shine in the skies o'er yonder.-Chorus.
