JONATHAN COULTON
FIRST OF MAY
FROM THE ALBUM SMOKING MONKEY

TRANSCRIBED BY DOGMAN (HTTP://WWW.MYSPACE.COM/DOGBISCUIT)

intro: G C (with nifty hammer-on fingerpicking on the D string)

G
I woke up this morning
        C                       G
I had a scone and a large house blend
    C             Cmaj7  Am             C                     D
And then a little conver-sation with my squirrel and chipmunk friends
           G
I said I’m sick and tired of winter
      C                G
And I wish that it was spring
C                 Cmaj7        Am              
And then a little fellow named Robin Redbreast
C           D     EbDim (xx1212)
 Began to sing

And he sang
Em                                        Am
 Ooh ooh child, what’d you think the cold winter’s gonna last forever
Em                                         C             D
 Ooh ooh child, now’s the time for all the people to get together
   C9 (x32333)
Outside

[chorus]
                        G
Cause it’s the first of May, first of May
        C              G
Outdoor fucking starts today
    D
So bring your favorite lady
      C          C/B  C/A G       G7 (x23033)
Or at least your favorite lay
    C                     G
The water’s not cold baby dip in your big toe
    D                    G
Maybe I’ll see you in flagrante delicto
C                C
Grass below you, sky above
Am        C6(x02010)    C                    Cadd2
Celebrate spring with a crazy little thing called..

                                             G   C G C 

                                fucking outside


  G
I thanked him for the information
          C                    G
I cried a little when he flew away
  C             Cmaj7       Am                   
I watched an episode of The People’s Court
      C                D
And I tried to plan my day
  G
I called up my old lady
           C                   G
She wasn’t home so I called my girl
  C                  Cmaj7     Am          
I asked her if she’d like to join me as I
C              D      EbDim (xx1212)
 Entertain the world

And I said
Em                                        Am
Ooh ooh child, I’ll bring a blanket and I promise I will brush the

                                                  ants off
Em                                             C
Ooh ooh child, you’re gonna like it when we’re taking each other’s

                                                  D

                                                  pants off
   C9 (x32333)
Outside

[repeat chorus]

      G
So we went to the park together
        C                     G
We were walking in the midday sun
    C      Cmaj7    Am             C      
We met all kinds of people and we
               D
We fucked everyone
   G
We fucked a lady who sells ice cream
            C                   G
We fucked a man with a tan Shar Pei
C            Cmaj7  Am                C
Everyone who needed fucking well they
                  D     EbDim (xx1212)
They got fucked today

So come on
Em                                      Am
 Ooh ooh child, open your mind and your heart, feel-the-spirit moving

                                       through you
Em                                            C                    D
 Ooh ooh child, you’ll feel the warmth of the love when I stick it to

                                       you
   C9 (x32333)
Outside

[repeat chorus]

Am        C6(x02010)    C                    Cadd2             
Celebrate spring with a crazy little thing called..  
           G   C/G        G      C/G            C      Cm      G
