​The First Of May

This song is by Wolfe Tones and appears on the album Let The People Sing (1972).

When we were small and Christmas trees were tall
We used to love while others used to play
Don't ask me why. The time has passed me by
Nothing seems to be the same old way

Now we are tall and Christmas trees are small
And you don't ask the time of day
But you and I, our love will never ever die
And guess who cried come first of May

The apple trees that grew for you and me
I watched the apples falling one by one
And I recall the moment of them all
The day I kissed your cheeks and you were gone

Now we are tall and Christmas trees are small
And you don't ask the time of day
But you and I, our love will never ever die
And guess who cries the first of May

-And guess who cries come first of May
