WE were very tired we were very merry­ We h

WE were very tired we were very merry­
We had gone back and forth all night on the ferry.
It was bare and bright and smelled like a stable­
But we looked into a fire we leaned across a table
We lay on a hill top underneath the moon
And the whistles kept blowing and the dawn came soon.
We were very tired we were very merry­
We had gone back and forth all night on the ferry
And you ate an apple and I ate a pear
From a dozen of each we had bought somewhere
And the sky went wan and the wind came cold
And the sun rose dripping a bucketful of gold.
We were very tired we were very merry
We had gone back and forth all night on the ferry.
We hailed "Good morrow mother!" to a shawl covered head
And bought a morning paper which neither of us read
And she wept "God bless you!" for the apples and pears
And we gave her all our money but our subway fares. .
