Fifth of May (Jonathan Coulton song parody)

I don’t always write song parodies, but when I do they’re to the tune of Jonathan Coulton …

Fifth of May (ttto “First of May” by Jonathan Coulton)

I woke up this morning
I had some coffee from Juan Valdez
And then I had a little conversation with my Latino friends
I said I’m in the mood to party
In the middle of the spring
Then The Most Interesting Man in the World
Began to sing

And he sang
Ooh ooh child, you know I don’t always drink cervesa
Ooh ooh child, but there’s a party at the Cafe Mesa
Outside

Cause it’s the Fifth of May, Fifth of May
Cinco de Mayo is today
So tell your favorite lady
You’re getting drunk today
The beer’s cold baby, order some nachos
Maybe I’ll order some tequila and tacos
Tile below you, sky above
Celebrate May with a crazy little day for drinking outside

I thanked him for the information
He caught a unicorn and rode away
I watched a Blu-Ray of Puss in Boots
And I tried to plan my day
I called up my drinking buddies
Got the van and I drove them here
They couldn’t care less about Mexico
But they love the beer

And they said
Ooh ooh child, we’ll eat some chips with a habanero
Ooh ooh child, we’re getting smashed in a cheap sombrero
Outside

Cause it’s the Fifth of May, Fifth of May
Do tequila shots today
So tell your favorite lady
You’re getting drunk today
The beer’s cold baby, order some nachos
Maybe I’ll order some tequila and tacos
Tile below you, sky above
Celebrate May with a crazy little day for drinking outside

So we went to the bar together
We were drinking in the midday sun
We saw a lot of beers we can’t pronounce
We drank everyone
We drank a couple Noche Buenas
We drank Modelo and Tecate
Indio, León and bucket full of Sol
They got drunk today

Ooh ooh child, this kind of drinking you’re not used to
Ooh ooh child, now the vomit is moving through you
Outside

Cause it’s the Sixth of May, Sixth of May
Your hangover starts today
A designated driver
Will drive your van today
Thought you’d have a few beers with your tacos
Now you’re outdoors tossing up your nachos
Pavement below you, sky above
Celebrate spring with a crazy little thing called barfing outside
Barfing outside
Barfing outside
