1
    Enough of dreams! No longer mock
  The burdened hearts of men!
Not on the cloud, but on the rock.
          The secret Inn.
2
    There was music all about us, we were growing quite forgetful
We were only singing seamen from the dirt of Londontown.
          Forty singing Seamen.
3
    There’s a magic in the distance, where the sea-line meets the sky.
          Forty singing Seamen.
4
    Go down to Kew in lilac-time, in lilac-time, in lilac-time;
  Go down to Kew in lilac-time (it is n’t far from London!)
And you shall wander hand in hand with love in summer’s wonder-land;
  Go down to Kew in lilac-time (it is n’t far from London!)
          The Barrel-organ.
5
    Ye that follow the vision
  Of the world’s weal afar,
Have ye met with derision
  And the red laugh of war?
Yet the thunder shall not hurt you
  Nor the battle storms dismay;
Tho’ the sun in heaven desert you
  “Love will find out the way.”
          Love will find out the Way.
