Joe Offer ADD: Why Are We Waiting, the sun is high...' (4) RE: ADD: Why Are We Waiting (Chaffee/Slovakian) 18 Mar 19

(Slovakian Folk Song, text by Eleanor Alletta Chaffee)

Why are we waiting? The sun is high;
Morning is spreading across the sky.
Free as the swallow, Onward we follow,
There are a hundred new trails to try.

Pack up our knapsack with things to eat;
Forests are waiting for eager feet.
This is a play day, happy and gay day,
Many surprises we'll surely meet.
