Happy Wanderer, The

Sure to make you smile! The chorus of this song is pure joy. In addition to the video below, there is a delightful version courtesy of the Muppets.



I love to go a-wandering along the mountain track
And as I go, I love to sing, my knapsack on my back

Chorus:
Val-deri, val-dera,
Val-deri, val-dera-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!
Val-deri, val-dera,
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!

Chorus:
Val-deri, val-dera,
Val-deri, val-dera-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!
Val-deri, val-dera,
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 green wood tree.

Chorus:
Val-deri, val-dera,
Val-deri, val-dera-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!
Val-deri, val-dera,
From ev'ry green wood 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

Chorus:
Val-deri, val-dera,
Val-deri, val-dera-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!
Val-deri, val-dera,
Beneath the clear blue sky
Beneath the clear blue sky!
