Summer of 1353

Okay, this is a song called
"The Summer of 1353."
 
With Nigel - The New Zealand Symphony Orchestra - on cello
 
Hold on. I forgot it
 
'Twas the summer of 1353
And I sat beneath a willow tree
I decided upon that day I would be
A-wooing a lady
 
I went to the florist
And I said to she
"I need a flower
For today I will be
"A-woo-woo-woo, a-wooing
A lady”
 
"I'll hold this flower
Beneath her nose
It should smell as sweet as a rose"
"For this," she
Said, "I'd recommend
A rose”
 
"For a rose-like scent
I'd probably go
With a rose"
 
Then I went to the tailor
For to buy some clothing
Of the latest style
Which at that time
Was tights and pointed boots
 
I got the very tightest tights
And the pointiest of boots
 
Then I said to the hairdresser
"Cut my hair"
"I'll cut it like the page boys wear
Just a straight line
Across the brow
I'll get a ruler and some scissors
And do it for you now
It's a very hot look
If you're trying to woo a lady"
 
Then I needed a horse
So I went to the stables
Said, "Stable Man, would I be able
To hire a horse from
Which to woo milady?"
 
"Sire, there are two things
That I must see
One florin and
One form of picture ID"
 
"Alas, I have no ID on me
Who even carries ID?
It's 1353"
 
"I maketh not the rules"
Quoth he
 
I had a very unflattering
Tapestry made of me
 
Then from a hilltop
A lady, I did view
And I knew exactly what I must do
The time had come
For me to woo this lady
 
So I said:
"Woo-hoo, woo-hoo-hoo
Woo-hoo, lady, I am wooing you
Woo-hoo, woo-ooh-hoo
I woo you, lady"
 
This lady then said unto me
"You can't woo me so easily
It takes more than going
'Woo-ooh-ooh-ooh' to a lady"
 
But, lady, look, beneath your nose
It is a rose-scented flower
Which I call a rose
I have a very large horse
And the tightest clothes
All of these things I do to woo you
Lady
 
The horse is big
The tights are fun
But the hairdo's a little 1351
In fact, it makes
You look a little like
A lady
 
He-Man has this very same haircut
He-Man, double masculine
He-Man
 
I'm to be married to the king
We are to be wed
This coming spring
If you want my heart
You have to challenge him
To the thing they do
With the long pointy thing
The thing where they run
At one another on horseback
With a very long pointy thing
Puncture your lung
 
Oh
Is that the time?
I should be on my way
I think I'm coming down with
A little bit of the plague
If it matters not to you
I will just away
And claim that I wooed you anyway
I'll tell all my friends
In the village
That I wooed a lady
 
By going
Woo-hoo, woo-hoo-hoo
Woo-hoo, lady, I have just wooed you
Woo-hoo-hoo, woo-hoo
I wooed
You
 
Milady
 
Thanks!
