Text heard on Sample:
Mary: My mornings, my cool eves, the quiet thoughts I had, the dreaming, half afraid, yet wishful too - are changed within my breast to wonder and unrest. I know that this is best, yet this is new.
Jabez: Yet must I hold you fast, although the joys you've had - your mornings, your cool eves - were dear to you. For love's the summer kind, the harvest and wind and ev'ry year shall find our love more true.
Mary: For love's the summer kind...
Jabez: the harvest and the wind...
Mary: The fiddler and the dance!
Chorus: The bridegroom and the bride! We'll dance the night away, boys, 'till morning brings the day. For we are New England's pride. Dan'l! Black Dan'l, he's come! Three cheers for for the greatest man in the U.S. Three cheers for Dan'l Webster. Hip! hip! hooray!
