Tuesdays at 2pm
Welcome to the January 26th edition of Sounds of Home!
The Happy Wanderer
I love to go a-wandering along the mountain track
And as I go, I love to sing, my knapsack on my back.
Valderi, Valdera, Valderi, Valdera-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha
Valderi, Valdera, my knapsack on my back.
I love to wander by the stream that dances in the sun
So joyously it calls to me, “Come join my happy song.”
Valderi, Valdera …… come join my happy song.
I wave my hat to all I meet, and they wave back to me
And blackbirds call so loud and sweet from ev’ry greenwood tree.
Valderi, Valera …… from ev’ry greenwood tree.
Oh, may I go a-wandering until the day I die
Oh, may I always laugh and sing beneath God’s clear blue sky.
Valderi, Valdera …… beneath God’s clear blue sky.
Words: Antonia Ridge
Music: Friedrich-Wilhelm Möller
