Furry Day Carol Remember us poor Mayers all! And thus we do begin -a, To lead our lives in righteousness Or else we die in sin-a. With Holano, Holanto, Holanto, Sing merry with Holanto, We have been rambling half the night And almost the day-a, And now, returned back again, We've brought you a branch of May-a. O, we were up as soon as day, To fetch the summer home-a, The summer is a-coming on, And the winters a-gone-a. Then let us all most merry be, And sing with a cheerful voice-a, For we have good occasion now, This time for to rejoice-a. Saint George he next shall be our song: Saint George, he was a knight-a, Of all the men in Christendom, Saint George he was the right-a. God bless our land with power and might, God send us peace in England, Pray send us peace both day and night, For ever in merry England. JY
