FIDDLE, flute, and horn uniting,
To the idol-dance inviting --
Round the golden calf with springing
All of Jacob's daughters come --
Brum -- brum -- brum --
Kettle drums and laughter ringing!

Girding up their tunics lightly,
Clasping hands together tightly,
Noble maidens, off'rings bringing,
Twist, like whirlwinds at the least,
Round the beast --
Kettle drums and laughter ringing!

Aaron's self joins in the mazy
Circling dance with motions crazy;
His concerns not looking after,
Skips he, in his high-priest's coat,
Like a goat --
Kettle drums and ringing laughter!
