Alternate first verse?
It is the shining time of spring, eya!
With flowers bright and birds on wing, eya!
And jealous husbands trouble bring, eya!
So now our queen would like to sing
To say and to tell that she is full of love
Hm.... I will think about it, but this one is 1) prettier and 2) foreshadows what 'action' the song has rather nicely.
