April Fools Score
 

Now mer-ry Mo-mus rules A-pril fools! A-pril fools! And with quirp and quil-let schools A-pril fools! 'Tis the sea-son of the year, When we hold it to be clear That all, more or less, ap-pear A-pril fools! A-pril fools!
Now, at every turn, we meet April fools! April fools! In park, in square, and street, April fools! Now "pigeon's milk" is sought, "Useful knowledge" cheaply bought, Pleasant lessons, too, are taught April fools! April fools!
Now little boys are made April fools! April fools! (By bigger boys betrayed,) April fools! Now boys, the world calls "old," Deceived by damsels bold, Find out they are cajoled April fools! April fools!
Now sportive nymphs beguile, April fools! April fools! With gamesome trick and wile, April fools! In vain the charming sex Would their lovers' heart perplex, They may cheat, but cannot vex April fools! April fools!
Now Evans and his crew, April fools! April fools! Find fighting will not do, April fools! Now Sarsfield, Espartero, And many a battered hero, Place Spanish funds at zero, April fools! April fools!
Now ministers are termed April fools! April fools! And their titles are confirmed, April fools! Now Whigs astute, kicked out, Hear the deep derisive shout Echo wide the land throughout, April fools! April fools!
Now costermonger scribes— April fools! April fools! Pen their dullest diatribes, April fools! In Bentley's Magazine, Alone, are to be seen Wits, who scourge with satire keen April fools! April fools!
Now readers, grave or gay, April fools! April fools! We shall terminate our lay, April fools! And we trust that you perceive, We are laughing in our sleeve, As these idle rhymes we weave, April fools! April fools!
