1
    A song to the oak, the brave old oak,
  Who hath ruled in the greenwood long!
          The brave old Oak.
2
    Now gold hath sway; we all obey
  And a ruthless king is he;
But he never shall send our ancient friend
  To be tost on the stormy sea.
          The brave old Oak.
3
    Then here’s to the oak, the brave old oak,
  Who stands in his pride alone!
And still flourish he, a hale green tree,
  When a hundred years are gone!
          The brave old Oak.
