Lightly, o lightly we bear her along.
She sways like a flower in the wind of our song;
She skims like a bird on the foam of a stream,
She floats like a laugh from the lips of a dream.
Gaily, o gaily we glide and we sing,
We bear her along like a pearl on a string.
Softly, o softly we bear her along
She hangs like a star in dew of our song;
She springs like a beam on the brow of the tide,
She falls like a tear from the eyes of a bride
Lightly, o lightly we glide and we sing,
we bear her along like a pearl on a string.
