Musical arrangement by David Mikofsky

Interpolates "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go" by Wham!, George Michael

lyrics

Fa-la-la!
Fa-la-la!
Fa-la-la!
Fa-la-la!

When that I was a little tiny boy
A foolish thing was but a toy
But when I came to man’s estate
‘Gainst knaves & thieves men shut their gate

But when I came, alas! to wive,
By swaggering could I never thrive
But when I came unto my beds
With toss-pots, we still had drunken heads!

Chorus
With hey-ho, the wind & the rain
For the rain, it raineth ev’ry day
With hey-ho, the wind & the rain
Hey, nonny-nonny-nay!
With hey-ho, the wind & the rain
For the rain, it raineth ev’ry day
With hey-ho, the wind & the rain
Hey, nonny-nonny-nay!
Hey, nonny-nonny-nay!

Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May
Thou art more lovely & more temperate
And Summer’s lease hath all too short a date

But thy eternal Summer shall not fade
Nor shall Death brag thou wand’rest in his shade
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee!

Chorus
With hey-ho, the wind & the rain
For the rain, it raineth ev’ry day
With hey-ho, the wind & the rain
Hey, nonny-nonny-nay!
With hey-ho, the wind & the rain
For the rain, it raineth ev’ry day
With hey-ho, the wind & the rain
Hey, nonny-nonny-nay!
Hey, nonny-nonny-nay!

My sweet, our love’s an ever-fix-ed mark
It is the star to every wandering bark
If this be error, and upon me proved
I never writ, nor no man ever loved!

Chorus
With hey-ho, the wind & the rain
For the rain, it raineth ev’ry day
With hey-ho, the wind & the rain
Hey, nonny-nonny-nay!
With hey-ho, the wind & the rain
For the rain, it raineth ev’ry day
With hey-ho, the wind & the rain
Hey, nonny-nonny-nay!
Hey, nonny-nonny-nay!
