The Marry Month of May
It's the marry month of May when flowers are in bloom
A time for courtship and romance for every bride and groom.
Mister Swallow and his bride donned their very best
They married in a hawthorn tree and then they built their nest.
And then there were two pixies dear who lived in Yorkshire dell
The fairy folk who live there still have this tale to tell...
Mushroom Boy, a gentleman, he bowed on bended knee
Asking his beloved one, "will you marry me?"
"Oh yes!" she cried and clapped her hands, her cheeks a rosy hue
And with a sunny smile she said, "I will marry you!"
Another couple fell in love when they were young and free
Married in a chapel, filled with friends and family.
They are still together now, a faithful king and queen
Through all the seasons of their life, like a garden green.
Birds and faeries, people too can marry in the spring
Sharing love and happiness and even wedding rings.
