  1. May Day

From the album The Jumping Flea

Lyrics

MAYDAY

Do you see the crowd with the banners swaying
Together we stand divided we fall
The people are proud and the band is playing
Marching down to the union hall
Can you see the coloured ribbons twining
As the dancers turn the wooden pole
Each individual strand combining
As we join together in a mighty whole

May Day Mayday May Day
May Day May Day May Day
May Day May Day, May Day
May Day May Day, May Day

A storm’s been rising since you left me
You were my Queen of the May
Took the flowers from your hair outside the vestry
You threw them down and walked away
I’m in distress and I am sinking
I lost my bearings, all at sea
I know it’s only wishful thinking
That you’ll hear my call and come rescue me

Mayday Mayday Mayday
Mayday Mayday Mayday
Mayday Mayday Mayday
Mayday Mayday Mayday
