First of May  Jonathan Coulton

intro: G C (with nifty hammer-on fingerpicking on the D string)
[G]I woke up this morning
I had a [C]scone and a large house [G]blend
And [C]then a little [Cmaj7]conver-[Am]sation with my [C]squirrel and chipmunk [D]friends
I said I?m [G]sick and tired of winter
And I [C]wish that it was [G]spring
[C]And then a little [Cmaj7]fellow named [Am]Robin Redbreast
C D EbDim (xx1212)
Began to sing
And he sang
[Em] Ooh ooh child, what?d you think the cold [Am]winter?s gonna last forever
[Em] Ooh ooh child, now?s the time for all the [C]people to get [D]together
C9 (x32333)
Cause it?s the first of [G]May, first of May
Outdoor [C]fucking starts [G]today
So b[D]ring your favorite lady
C C/B C/A G G7 (x23033)
Or at least your favorite lay
The [C]water?s not cold baby [G]dip in your big toe
Mayb[D]e I?ll see you in fla[G]grante delicto
[C]Grass below you, [C]sky above

I [G]thanked him for the information
I cried a [C]little when he flew a[G]way
I [C]watched an epi[Cmaj7]sode of The [Am]People?s Court
And I [C]tried to plan my [D]day
I [G]called up my old lady
She wasn?t [C]home so I called my [G]girl
I [C]asked her if she?d [Cmaj7]like to jo[Am]in me as I
C D EbDim (xx1212)
Entertain the world
And I said
[Em]Ooh ooh child, I?ll bring a blanket and I [Am]promise I will brush the
ants off
[Em]Ooh ooh child, you?re gonna like it when we?re [C]taking each other?s
pants off
C9 (x32333)
(repeat chorus)
So we [G]went to the park together
We were [C]walking in the midday [G]sun
We m[C]et all [Cmaj7]kinds of [Am]people and we[C]
We fucked every[D]one
We [G]fucked a lady who sells ice cream
We fucked a [C]man with a tan Shar [G]Pei

They got fucked today
So come on
