    Spring is here, a-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 an' 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 relig-e-on
    To want to dispose of a pig-e-on!

    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 doIn a squirrel* or two,
    While we're poisoning pigeons in the park.

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

    My pulse will be quickenin'
    With each drop of strych'nine
    We feed to a pigeon.
    (It just takes a smidgin!)
    To poison a pigeon in the park.

    Happy 79th Birthday, Tom Lehrer.
