O lusty May with Flora quene
The balmy drops from Phebus schene
Preluciand bemes befoir the day, befoir the day, the day,
Be that Diana growis grene
Thru' glaidnes of this lusty May.

Than Esperus that is so bricht
Till wofull hairts castis his licht
With banks that blumes on ev'ry bray, on ev'ry bray, the bray,
And schurs ar sched furth of thair sicht
Thru' glaidnes of this lusty May.
