Please to bend down for the one called the Greenman 
He wants to make you his bride 
Please to bend down for the one called the Greenman

He'll be a million more 
And you know for a million years he has been your lover 
Down through the skin to the core

Heed the Greenman 
Heed the Greenman 

Please to dance round for the one called the Greenman 
He wants to make you his child 
Please to dance round for the one called the Greenman 
Dressed in the fruits of the wild 

And you know for a million years he has been your father 
He'll be a million more 
And you know for a million years he has been your father 
Run to his arms at the door 

Lay your head, lay your head, lay your head, lay your head on the Greenman 
Lay your head, lay your head with mine 
Lay your head, lay your head, lay your head, lay your head on the Greenman 
Build a bed out of oak and pine 

See the Greenman blow his kiss from high church wall 
And unknowing church will amplify his call
