Subject: RE: Lyr/Chords Req: Drive the Cold Winter Away
There's a version I have at home of works that Henry VIII took credit for writing, including this one, and it includes the stanza:

Cross out from thy books
Malevolent looks
Both Beauty and youth's decay
And boldly consort
With mirth and with sport
To drive the cold winter away

There's more, but that's all I can remember off the top of my head from the office.
