Thread Name: Lyr Req: The Twenty-First of May
Subject: RE: The twenty-first of May
Really? He died a few years ago and you're still planning his funeral? Well, it may be late for the funeral, but it's never too late to add useful information to the database. There's a song called "The Turmot Hoer" [one who hoes turnips] that begins "'Twas on a jolly summer's morn, the twenty-first of May."

There are several versions of that song in this thread.
