A May Day Love Song

“It wasn’t meant to be.”

A May Day Love Song:

Myrtle the Turtle

 By Bill McCurdy (1958)

 

I fell in love – with a turtle

Whose first name – was Myrtle

And ever since – my life has took

A change of pace

 

It wasn’t fast – we reached that love space

We took our time – at mine or her place

And when she smiled – I had to grin

She had such grace

 

But then one day – she crossed the highway

Of a very busy – byway

And life moves on – my love is gone

That’s my sad case

 

She wasn’t killed – just got turned over

So I turned up – just in from Dover

And pushed her over – in the clover

And gave her chase

 

She wasn’t fast – but I was slower

Almost got hit – by a sickle mower

She disappeared – just like I feared

That dad-gum hoe-er
