Loving JoCo crafters

Aw, man.  I love First of May sooooo much!  (Tan Shar Pei!!)  My favorite moments revolving around this song include going to see JoCo live at the Cactus Club, sharing a sidelong glance with my friends, and telling each other “Aw yeah. You know which word we’ll be yelling out.”  Only we didn’t.  One yelled “fucking” while I yelled “Tan sharpei!”  It made the most sense to me.  Months later, we went and saw him again at some nerdfest post SXSW.  This time, we got it together and all yelled “tan sharpei”.  We were gratified to make Mr. Jonathan Coulton smile. Possibly it would have been a chuckle if he hadn’t been singing.  🙂

Now, thanks to a fellow geekcrafter, you can love the song all year long:

First of May lyrics:
I woke up this morning
I had a scone and a large house blend
Then a little conversation with my squirrel and chipmunk friends
I said I’m sick and tired of winter
And I wish that it was spring
Then a little fellow named Robin Redbreast
Began to sing

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

Cause it’s the first of May, first of May
Outdoor fucking starts today
So bring your favorite lady
Or at least your favorite lay
Water’s not cold baby dip in your big toe
Maybe I’ll see you in flagrante delicto
Grass below you, sky above
Celebrate spring with a crazy little thing called fucking outside

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

And I said
Ooh ooh child, I’ll bring a blanket and I promise I will brush the ants off
Ooh ooh child, you’re gonna like it when we’re taking each other’s pants off
Outside

Cause it’s the first of May, first of May
Outdoor fucking starts today
So bring your favorite lady
Or at least your favorite lay
Water’s not cold baby dip in your big toe
Maybe I’ll see you in flagrante delicto
Grass below you, sky above
Celebrate spring with a crazy little thing called fucking outside

So we went to the park together
We were walking in the midday sun
Met all kinds of people and we
We fucked everyone
Fucked a lady who sells ice cream
We fucked a man with a tan Shar Pei
Everyone who needed fucking well they
They got fucked today

So come on
Ooh ooh child, open your mind and your heart, feel the spirit moving through you
Ooh ooh child, you’ll feel the warmth of the love when I stick it to you
Outside

Cause it’s the first of May, first of May
Outdoor fucking starts today
So bring your favorite lady
Or at least your favorite lay
Water’s not cold baby dip in your big toe
Maybe I’ll see you in flagrante delicto
Grass below you, sky above
Celebrate spring with a crazy little thing called fucking outside
Fucking outside
Fucking outside

  1. Nice! You can’t hear us yelling “fucking” or “tan sharpei” in that recording. I wish I could find the Mr. Fancy Pants from that night, too. *hint*. 😉
