As Cheery As A Yellow Swallow

Happy as this beautiful bird of nature, Which can easily find its food. Cheery as the bird of paradise, Which gives hope to the destitute. Darling, spring comes once a year, Your beauty is sublime and inexplicable. Come to my window before sunset, Come visit me at the old barn. Cheerful as a yellow swallow of the meadow, The one who knows how to enjoy life, And who can sing the heroic odes of yesteryear. You, the bird of freedom and of a perpetual spring, My heart and my soul crave for you, you are my happiness, My lucky lady, and the sincere friend of my pretty flowers.
