Come ye young men, come along
With your music, dance and song
Bring your lasses in your hand
For 'tis that which love commands

Chorus:
Then to the maypole, haste away
For 'tis now our holiday! (Repeat)

'Tis the choice time of the year
When the violets now appear
And the rose now sees its birth
And the primrose decks the earth

Chorus:
Then to the maypole, haste away
For 'tis now our holiday! (Repeat)

And when you are reckoned now
For kisses you your sweetheart gave
Take them all again and more
It will never make them poor

Chorus:
Then to the maypole, haste away
For 'tis now our holiday! (Repeat)

And when you well spend your time
And the day is past its prime
To your beds repair at night
And dream then of your day's delight

Chorus:
Then to the maypole, haste away
For 'tis now our holiday! (Repeat)
