Would someone be kind enough to provide the lyrics for Anne's 'Summer's In'?

I heard this recently - and would like to learn for Midsummer.
Ta in advance, :)

Cheers Willa - some of her words are a bit tricky in places, so I'll no doubt come back to the thread for opinion.

These are the lyrics that I 'hear', if anyone else thinks they can be corrected, please do so.. :)


SUMMER'S IN

Cuckoo's call the evening to still,
The sky went down and the nightbirds wing.
[..?..] over, the last day of Spring.

CHORUS:
For Summer is in,
Everyone sing
Ah, ah (etc),
Let us begin!

The other day, it being warm
We walked beside the fresh green corn
Gathered flowers in a garland to deck the day

Friends and neighbours gather near
come drink with us a brew of beer?
and share in our fortune, that the sun does bring

The king and the queen one morning in may
played chess in the valley to see who could stay
the stream in it's travels laughing away

We've sung in the markets, the pubs and the fayre
We've made no money, but what do we care
we'll sleep in a haystack and be on our way

we've gathered our feast along the seashore
cockles and mussels, enough for us all.
we'll eat in the sand-dunes and then go back for more

scattered around us, where we lay
are the bones of million years away
bleached in the sun [of these few day's??]

think of the ages blown in the sand
think where an ancient people did stand
and think of your fortune to be child of this land.
