To welcome in the May, oh

Hurray, hurray, the first of May! So, to welcome in the May, Hal-an-Tow. Long version, the song when it's at home:

Shorter version, in a smoky pub, with more careful harmonies:

Jolly Rumbelow,
We were up
Long before the day, oh,
To welcome in the Summer,
To welcome in the May, oh …
The Summer is a-comin' in, the Winter's gone away, oh.
