Happy May Day!

Take no scorn to wear the horn,
it was the crest when you were born,
your father's father wore it
and your father bore it, too.

Hal-an-tow, jolly rumbelow,
we were up long before the day-o,
to welcome in the summer,
to welcome in the May-o,
for summer is a-comin' in and winter's gone away-o.

Robin Hood and Little John,
they've both gone to the fair-o,
We shall to the merry greenwood
to hunt the buck and hare-o. Chorus

What happened to the Spaniards
that made so fine a boast-o,
they shall eat the feathered goose,
and we shall east the roast-o. Chorus

God bless Aunt Mary Moses
and all her power and might-o,
send us peace to England,
send peace by day and night-o. Chorus
