“The Lusty Month of May”

1 May 2011

Because it’s obligatory. Also, public service announcement: wrap it before you tap it.

Tra la! It’s May! The lusty month of May!
That lovely month when everyone goes blissfully astray.
Tra la! It’s here! That shocking time of year
When tons of wicked little thoughts merrily appear!

It’s May! It’s May! That gorgeous holiday
When every maiden prays that her lad
Will be a cad!

It’s mad! It’s gay! A libelous display!
Those dreary vows that ev’ryone takes,
Everyone breaks.
Everyone makes divine mistakes
The lusty month of May!

Whence this fragrance wafting through the air?
What sweet feelings does its scent transmute?
Whence this perfume floating everywhere?
Don’t you know it’s that dear forbidden fruit!
Tra la la la la! That dear forbidden fruit!
Tra la la la la!

Tra la! It’s May! The lusty month of May!
That darling month when everyone throws self-control away.
It’s time to do a wretched thing or two,
And try to make each precious day one you’ll always rue!

It’s May! It’s May!
The month of “yes, you may,”
The time for every frivolous whim,
Proper or “im.”

It’s wild! It’s gay! A blot in ev’ry way.
The birds and bees with all of their vast
Amorous past
gaze at the human race aghast,
The lusty month of May.

Tra la! It’s May! The lusty month of May!
That lovely month when everyone goes blissfully astray.
Tra la! It’s here! That shocking time of year
When tons of wicked little thoughts merrily appear.

It’s May! It’s May! The month of great dismay.
When all the world is brimming with fun,
Wholesome or “un.”

It’s mad! It’s gay! A libelous display!
Those dreary vows that everyone takes,
Everyone breaks.
Everyone makes divine mistakes
The lusty month of May!
