This might be the first line, or maybe the chorus.

You ladies all both great and small.
I do wish you a joyful May.

I think it is repeated - but as for the rest of it - quite gone.

If I had known I was going to forget so much I'd have been more careful to write things down....

I heard it at the folk club in Market Harborough, Leicester, England in the 1970's, and I remember the tune, which was quite jolly.

Oh well - I'm not very likely to come across a Maypole these days.
