Cornish May Carol Oss, Oss, Wee Oss Unite and unite and let us all unite For summer is a-come unto day And wither we are going, we will all unite In the merry morning of May With a merry ring and now the joyful spring O give us a cup of ale and the merrier we will sing The young men of Padstow, they might if they would They might have built a ship and gilded it all in gold The young women of Padstow, they might if they would They might have built a garland of the white rose and the red Where are those young men that now here should dance? For some they are in England and some they are in France O where is St. George? O where is he o ? He's out in his longboat All on the salt sea-o Up flies the kite Down falls the lark-o And Ursula Birdhood she had an old ewe And she died in her own park-o With a merry ring and now the joyful spring So happy are those little birds and the merrier we will sing from the May celebration at Padstow, Cornwall SOF
