About the maypole new,
With glee and merriment,
While as the bagpipe tooted it,
Thirsis and Cloris
Fine together footed it
Fa la la la la.
And to the wanton instrument,
They went to and fro, both,
And finely flaunted it
And then they met again
And thus they chanted it
Fa la la la la.
The shepherds and the Nymphs
Them round enclosed had,
Wond'ring with what facility
About they turned them
In such strange agility
Fa la la la la.
And still when they unloosed had,
With words full of delight, both,
They gently kissed them,
And thus sweetly to sing
They never missed them
Fa la la la la.
