– The Lusty Month of May –
Alan Jay Lerner & Frederick Loewe
from Camelot, 1960
(orig cast and movie versions mixed)

It's May! It's May!
The lusty month of May!
That lovely month when ev'ryone 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!
That gorgeous holiday
When ev'ry maiden prays that her lad
Will be a cad.
It's mad! It's gay!
Depraved in ev'ry way.
Those dreary vows that ev'ryone takes,
Ev'ryone breaks.
Ev'ryone 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 ev'rywhere?
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 la la la!
Tra la . . Tra la . . Tra la la la la la la la

It's May! It's May!
The lusty month of May!
That darling month when ev'ryone 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!

– The Lusty Month of May –
               cont'd

It's May! It's May!
The month of "yes you may,"
The time for ev'ry 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.

It's May! It's May!
The lusty month of May!
That lovely month when ev'ryone 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!
A libelous display!
Those dreary vows that ev'ryone takes,
Ev'ryone breaks.
Ev'ryone makes divine mistakes
The lusty month of May!
It's May! It's May!
It's May! It's May!
– Some Enchanted Evening –
Rodgers & Hammerstein
from South Pacific, 1949

Some enchanted evening you may see a stranger,
You may see a stranger across a crowded room
And somehow you know, you know even then
That somewhere you'll see her again and again.

Some enchanted evening someone may be laughing,
You may hear her laughing across a crowded room
And night after night, as strange as it seems
The sound of her laughter will sing in your dreams.

Who can explain it?  Who can tell you why?
Fools give you reasons,  Wise men never try.

Some enchanted evening when you find your true love,
When you feel her call you across a crowded room,
Then fly to her side, and make her your own
Or all through your life you may dream all alone.

Once you have found her, never let her go.
Once you have found her, never let her go!
