Traditional
  1. Come ye young men, come along,
    With your music, dance and song.
    Bring your lassies in your hand,
    For 'tis that which love commands
    Then to the maypole haste away
    For 'tis now our holiday
    Then to the maypole haste away
    For 'tis now our holiday.
  2. Here each bachelor may choose
    One that will not faith abuse
    Nor repay with coy disdain
    Love that should be loved again
    Then to the maypole haste away
    For 'tis now our holiday
    Then to the maypole haste away
    For 'tis now our holiday.
  3. When you thus have spent your time
    'T'ill the day be passed its prime
    To your beds repair at night
    And dream there of your day’s delight.
    Then to the maypole haste away
    For 'tis now our holiday
    Then to the maypole haste away
    For 'tis now our holiday.
