I've got the plow if you've got the furrow
I've got the rabbit if you've his burrow hole
I've got the pen if you've got the paper
Time is but clay I'll see you and the wheel turn
You and the wheel turn

[Chorus]
And if the pot won't hold our love
If the pot won't hold our love
If the pot won't hold our love
Then we'll dash it to the ground
And if the pot won't hold our love
If the pot won't hold our love
If the pot won't hold our love
We'll build one bigger all around
Goes the wheel

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

[Chorus]

Maypole
Maypole
Maypole you've spun me round and knocked me off my axis Monday
Maypole
Maypole
Maypole the ties that bind you will unwind to free me one day
And everything decays

Yes, everything decays
Forest tumbles down to make the soil
Planets fall apart
Just to feed the stars and stuff their ours

And what made me think we're any better
And what made me think we'd last forever
Was I so naive?
Of course it all unweaves

Maypole
Maypole
Maypole you've spun me round and knocked me off my axis Monday
Maypole
Maypole
Maypole the ties that bind you will unwind to free me one day
And everything decays

Pyramids and palaces to dust
Empires crumbling
Wedding cake begins to must and molder

And what made me think we're any better
And what made me think we'd last forever
Was I so naive?
Failing to perceive

Maypole (round goes the wheel)
Maypole (round goes the wheel)
Maypole (the ties that bind you will unwind to free me one day)
Maypole (if the pot won't hold our love)
