Happy May Day ...

So, you thought The Floral Dance was traditional?

Now, hasn't Sir Tel aged well?

Lyrics and tune were composed in 1911 by 'Katie' Moss, (1881 - 1947,) although she acknowledged a nod to an old Cornish melody.
Otherwise this is known as The Furry Dance, annually performed to celebrate spring in Helston, Cornwall.
