Thread Name: maypole dancing
Subject: RE: maypole dancing
The Abram Circle Dance is trditionaly done round a maypole, albeit a portable one. Good tune with many parts and danced with a simple skip step.

More simplistic is the 'Skip round the maypole' childrens chant. Can't find a link for you but the tune can be found on many Oldham Tinkers songs of playground songs

"We'll skip round the maypole, the maypole, the maypole
We'll skip round the maypole. Tra-la-la-la-la

Who made the birdies sing, the birdies sing, the birdies sing
Who made the birdies sing. Tra-la-la-la-la

God made the birdies sing etc etc etc"

Who made the flowers grow
Who made the rain fall
Who made the teacher fart :-D

Anything you like.
