Many a new face will please my eye
Many a new love will find me
Never have I once looked back to sigh
Over the romance behind me
Many a new day will dawn before I do!
Many a light lad may kiss and fly
A kiss gone by is bygone
Never have I asked an August sky
"Where has last July gone?"
Never have I wandered through the rye
Wondering where has some guy gone
Many a new day will dawn before I do

Actually it's the tune that makes the lyrics so good.
