PHOEBE drest like beauty’s queen,  
Jellicoe in faint pea-green,  
Sitting all beneath a grot,  
Where the little lambkins trot.  
 
Maidens dancing, loves a-sporting,  
All the country folks a-courting,  
Susan, Johnny, Bob, and Joe,  
Lightly tripping on a row.  
 
Happy people, who can be  
In happiness compar’d with ye?        
The pilgrim with his crook and hat  
Sees your happiness complete.

Songs from ‘An Island in The Moon’
