Lyrics: Anon, probably the composer

O ye roses, so blooming and fair,
Go hide your soft blushes, and droop in despair,
For Flora is coming, my shepherdess true,
And she is a thousand times fairer than you.
See she comes, the pride of Spring;
United, welcome let us sing.
Long live the Queen of May!
To laud her is our duty;
For in amaze all things do gaze,
Enraptur'd by her beauty.
