April Fools Day

By Bud Lemire

It's April Fools Day, who'll be the fool
Do you know anyone who is breaking the rule
Remember when sugar was changed to salt
Well, I can say, it sure wasn't my fault

I'm sure you remember things that happened on this day
The tricks that were pulled, as life took us away
I remember telling a friend, I saw an orange spotted purple bird
She stood on a chair to look, craziest thing you ever heard

April Fools Day can be enjoyed, as long as it's harmless fun
There's so many people, and you can choose anyone
I once told a friend I had a Japanese Ancestry
I'm all French, so how could that be

Oh there are so many fools on this April's day
It's that time of year when it's jokes that we play
I haven't played jokes in such a long time
But not playing them today, is such a crime

April Fools only come around on the first
As long as they're harmless, it won't be the worst
If someone offers you a chocolate bar, it might be Ex-Lax
Because on this day, those are the facts

April Fools Jokes are fun, as long as they don't
