There was a jolly miller once
Lived on the river Dee,
He danced and sang from morn till night,
No lark so blithe as he;
And this the burden of his song
Forever used to be,
"I care for nobody, no, not I,
If nobody cares for me."

I live by my mill. God bless her!
She's kindred. child and wife;
I would not change my station
For any other in life;
No lawyer, surgeon or doctor
E'er had a groat from me,
"I care for nobody, no, not I,
If nobody cares for me."

When Spring begins his merry career,
Oh, how his heart grows gay;
No Summer's draught alarms his fears,
Nor Winter's cold decay;
No foresight mars the miller's joy,
Who's wont to sing and say,
"Let others toil from year to year,
I live from day to day."

Thus, like the miller, bold and free.
Let us rejoice and sing,
The days of youth are made for glee.
And time is on the wing.
This song shall pass from me to thee
Along the jovial ring,
With heart and voice let all agree
To say, "Long live the king."
