Natalie Merchant — King Of May lyrics

Farewell today
Travel on now
Be on your way
Go safely there
And never worry
Never care
Beyond this day

Farewell tonight
To all joy
And to all delight
Go on
Go peacefully
We can't keep your majesty
Be on your way

Make ready for the last king of May
Make a cardboard crown for him
And make your voices one
Praise a crazy mother's son
Who loved his life

Farewell today
Travel on now
Be on your way
Can't bear
The very thought that we
That we could keep your majesty
Be on your way

Make ready for the last king of May
Make a hole in the ground for him
Raise your voices up
Drink your loving cup
To his long life
To his long life

Make ready for the last king of May
Make a hole in the sky for him
Raise your voices up
Lift your loving cup
To his long life
To his long life

His long life
And raise your voices up
Lift your loving cup
To his long life
To his long life
To his long life
To his long life
