  • Mood:

Everybody, sing along!

Spring is here,
Suh-puh-ring is here,
Life is skittles, and life is beer
I think the loveliest time of the year
Is the spring
(I do! Don't you? 'Course you do!)

But there's one thing that makes spring complete for me
And makes every Sunday a treat for me...

All the world seems in tune on a spring afternoon
When we're poisoning pigeons in the park
Every Sunday you'll see my sweetheart and me
As we poison the pigeons in the park

When they see us coming, the birdies all try and hide
But they still go for peanuts when coated with cyanide

The sun's shining bright, everything seems all right
When we're poisoning pigeons in the park!

We've gained notoriety
And caused much anxiety
In the Audubon Society
With our games
They call it impiety
And lack of propriety
And quite a variety
Of unpleasant names

But it's not against any religion
To want to dispose of a pigeon

So if Sunday you're free, why don't you come with me
And we'll poison the pigeons in the park
And maybe we'll do in a squirrel or two
As we poison the pigeons in the park

We'll murder them all, amidst laughter and merriment
Except for the few we take home to experiment

My pulse will be quickenin' with each drop of strychnin'
We feed to a pigeon
(It just takes a smidgen!)
To poison the pigeons in the park!
--Tom Lehrer
