MIDI File

Chorus: It's hey for a wedding on May day,
And happy be the bride.
O youth in the Spring has its heyday.
Milkmaids: Ay, youth in the Spring has its heyday.
Chorus: Ay, youth in the Spring has its heyday,
All: And joy with the couple shall bide.
Sopranos: Come with a laugh.
Men: Come with a song,
All: Come with a flow'r or a fairing.
Wine shall be old, all shall be strong,
Kisses there'll be for the daring.
Come with laughter and song.
Milkmaids: O hasten! Then heigho! Hey-day!
Hey, nonny, nonny, the bride is so bonny;
With her the gallant groom may well be blithe and gay.
Sopranos: Heigho! Hey-day!
Let us be merry, with derry down derry,
All: Good fortune waits, they say,
The bride of May, the blushing bride of May.
Then Heigho! Hey-day!
Hey, nonny, nonny, the bride is so bonny;
With her the gallant groom may well be blithe and gay.
Milkmaids: Good fortune waits the bride of May,
Sopranos: Good fortune waits the bride of May,
All: the bride of May.
   
All: Left hand! Right hand! Left hand! Right hand!
All hands round! All round!
Left hand! Right hand! All hands round!
All hands round! All hands round! All round!
