First of May (Bee Gees song)




First of May
     
When I was small, and christmas trees were tall,
We used to love while others used to play.
Don’t ask me why, but time has passed us by,
Some one else moved in from far away.

Now we are tall, and christmas trees are small,
And you don’t ask the time of day.
But you and i, our love will never die,
But guess we’ll cry come first of may.

The apple tree that grew for you and me,
I watched the apples falling one by one.
And I recall the moment of them all,
The day I kissed your cheek and you were mine.

Now we are tall, and christmas trees are small,
And you don’t ask the time of day.
But you and i, our love will never die,
But guess we’ll cry come first of may.

When I was small, and christmas trees were tall,
Do do do do do do do do do...
Don’t ask me why, but time has passed us by,
Some one else moved in from far away.


"First of May" is a song recorded by the Bee Gees  with lead vocals by Barry Gibb, released as a single from their 1969 double album Odessa. The flip side of a single was "Lamplight" on which Robin Gibb sang the lead. Robert Stigwood, the Bee Gees manager chose "First of May" for the A-side. No other singles were released from the Odessa album, as Robin Gibb already had left the group.

This song was initially taped in demo form in New York City on August 16, 1968[3]. Later that year in London, "First of May" (a titular reference to the birthday of Barry's dog, Barnaby) was remade at IBC Studios with a majestic orchestral arrangement from maestro Bill Shepherd.

Barry Gibb says in Tales from the Brothers Gibb that the title of the song was inspired by the fact that his dog's birthday was on the 1st of May.

After its release, "First of May" enjoyed a resurgence for several times. In 1971, the song was featured in the soundtrack to Melody, a British motion picture about puppy love. In 1996, the song was used as a theme of the Japanese drama Wakaba no Koro. The song reissued on CD climbed the country's chart again and gained moderate commercial success, selling more than 100,000 copies.
