lyrics

One fine day in the middle of May
Six lovers lay beneath the sun's rays
For two loves touch was much too much
When the other pairs touched, they left in a rush
It didn't take long for fear to be gone
Before autumn's dawn her hand was won

The turn of the millenium, a summertime of love

Spring was all smiles, in March down the aisle
In a little while we followed their style
First to the altar their love didn't falter
Crazy we called 'em, the summertime sweltered
A union in June and one in July
Another in August with a lunar surprise

A rose by name she smells the same
How quickly she came, no gardener can tame
her wild dancing and fickle fancy,
her eyes romancing, but they can't see
The Julian power that made this flower
The Julian power made an april flower
