Happy Beltane... & Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe from Camalot

Jacob Matham after Hendrik Goltzius - Libido 1587



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,
depraved in every way
The birds and bees with all
of their vast amorous past
Gaze at the human race aghast
The Lusty Month of May

It's May, it's May, the lusty Month of May
That lovely month when everyone goes
blissfully astray
it's here, 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,
alive a lust display
Those dreary vows that everyone takes,
everyone breaks
Everyone makes divine mistakes
The Lusty Month of May

Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe from Camalot
