"Dance Around The Maypole" as written by and Roy Wood....
I like your boy said Caroline to Jane
You must know why for it's the first of May
Let's go dancing on the green
Fair girls one to seventeen

Dance 'round the Maypole
Dance 'round the Maypole
Over the green fields
And down to the hay
Lift up your hearts
And dance 'round the Maypole
Run to your true love
And dance all the day

Sir my friend too is a handsome cavalier
You and I will escort her to the fair
Bluebells 'round the cherry tree
This girl gave them all to me

Dance 'round the Maypole
Dance 'round the Maypole
Over the green fields
And down to the hay
Lift up your hearts
And dance 'round the Maypole
Run to your true love
And dance all the day

One minute seemed to be right
When she expressed her delight
At finding sixpence in her shoe
How can you romance apart
When gaze on out to the start
Well there's a shadow chasing you

This young girl threw her cares into a well
Now I've learned for the time has rang the bell
No more dancing on the green
Since I've found another scene

Dance 'round the Maypole
Dance 'round the Maypole
Over the green fields
And down to the hay
Lift up your hearts
And dance 'round the Maypole
Run to your true love
And dance all the day

Dance 'round the Maypole
Dance 'round the Maypole
Over the green fields
And down to the hay
Lift up your hearts
And dance 'round the Maypole
Run to your true love
And dance all the day
