May I make my fond excuses for the lateness of the hour,
For the May Day is the great day, sung along the old straight track.
Pass the word and pass the lady, pass the plate to all who hunger.
Ask the green man where he comes from, ask the cup that fills with red.
Question all as to their ways, and learn the secrets that they hold.
Pass the cup and pass the lady, pass the plate to all who hunger.
Join in black December's sadness, lie in August's welcome corn.
But the May Day is the great day, sung along the old straight track.
Pass the word and pass the lady, pass the plate to all who hunger.
