I've got the plow if you've got the furrow
I've got the pen if you've got the paper
You and the wheel turn
[Chorus]
If the pot won't hold our love
Then we'll dash it to the ground
If the pot won't hold our love
We'll build one bigger all around

I've got the big stick if you've Aunt Sally's head
Time is but clay I'll see you and the wheel turn


Maypole
Maypole
Maypole the ties that bind you will unwind to free me one day

Forest tumbles down to make the soil
Just to feed the stars and stuff their ours
And what made me think we're any better
Was I so naive?

Maypole
Maypole
Maypole the ties that bind you will unwind to free me one day

Empires crumbling

And what made me think we'd last forever
Failing to perceive
Maypole (round goes the wheel)
Maypole (the ties that bind you will unwind to free me one day)
