First Of May

Jonathan Coulton

 G
 I woke up this morning
 CG
I had a scone and a large house blend
 CCmaj7AmCD
And then a little conver-sation with my squirrel and chipmunk friends
 G
I said I'm sick and tired of winter
 CG
And I wish that it was spring
 CCmaj7Am
 And then a little fellow named Robin Redbreast
C D EbDim (xx1212)
Began to sing

And he sang
 EmAm
  Ooh ooh child, what'd you think the cold winter's gonna last forever
 EmCD
  Ooh ooh child, now's the time for all the people to get together

 G
Cause it's the first of May, first of May
 CG
Outdoor fucking starts today
 D
So bring your favorite lady
C C/B C/A G G7 (x23033)
Or at least your favorite lay
 CG
The water's not cold baby dip in your big toe
 DG
Maybe I'll see you in flagrante delicto

 G
thanked him for the information
 CG
I cried a little when he flew away
 CCmaj7Am
watched an episode of The People's Court

And I tried to plan my day
 G
called up my old lady
 CG
She wasn't home so I called my girl
 CCmaj7Am
asked her if she'd like to join me as I

And I said

ants off
 EmC
 Ooh ooh child, you're gonna like it when we're taking each other's

pants off
C9 (x32333)
Outside

 G
So we went to the park together

We were walking in the midday sun

We met all kinds of people and we
