Words by Ollie Wood. Music by Harry B. Marshall.

Dancing on de green in the sunshine, to while the hours away-
The merry, merry ring at the May-pole will dance the whole long day-
Hark! hark! hear them gaily sing-Look! look! while they form the ring;
Dancing on the green in the sunshine, to while the hours away.

Dancing on the green in the sunshine, all earth seems fair and gay,
And time glides by on golden wings, this merry day in May.- [Dance.]

Winding to the top the long May-pole, with ribbons bright in hue-
Entwined with the rose and the myrtle, you see the red, white and blue-
Look! look! further up they go!-See! see! they wind the highest row;
Dancing on the green in the sunshine, to while the hours away.-Refrain.

At eve, when the shades are filling, together then they stray-
Each lad with the girl he loves best, they slowly wend their way-
List! list! soft the echoes fall!-Ring! ring! bells from steeples tall.
While the shadows chase the sunshine, and slowly dies the day.-Refrain.
