Sing like a skylark
On the first of May
Let your joy echo
Through glorious glades
Reclaimed by Mab
From grimmest grey
Sing like a skylark
On the first of May

No bed of Procrustes
Is to be found
Amongst the bounty
That springs from the ground
But tears fell
Upon this spot
When people wailed
And cursed their lot

So fair maiden
Born into bliss
Remember their pain
And honour their gift
To our joyful
Radiant lives
Hatred vanished
And love now thrives

The International
Cleansed our race
Of old division
There is no trace
Such words are shrouded
In mists of time
Empires fell and
We drank of the vine

So fair maiden
Born into bliss
Remember their pain
And honour their gift
To our joyful
Radiant lives
Hatered was vanquished
And love now thrives

Haymarket martyrs
Before they fell
Swore no allegiance
To the laws of hell
So in our heaven
We dance and play
We welcome the glorious
Month of May

So fair maiden
Born into bliss
Remember their pain
And honour their gift
To our joyful
Radiant lives
Hatred was banished
And love now thrives
