First of May" is a song by the Bee Gees with lead vocals by Barry Gibb, released as a single from their 1969 double album Odessa. Its B-side was "Lamplight". It also featured as the B-side of "Melody Fair" when that song was released as a single in the Far East in 1971 as well as in 1976 and 1980 on RSO Records. It was the first Bee Gees single to be released after lead guitarist Vince Melouney had left the group.

First of May. This song is by Bee Gees and appear. hen I was small, and Christmas trees were tallWe used to love while others used to playDon't ask me why, but time has passed us bySome one else moved in from far away. Now we are tall, and Christmas trees are smallAnd you don't ask the time of dayBut you and I, our love will never dieBut guess we'll cry come first of May.

First Of May’ was the only single to be released from the set, and became a substantial hit, even if it was the catalyst for Robin’s (thankfully short-lived) departure. The choice of a single from Odessa was the final straw, wrote Johnny Black in a Bee Gees retrospective in Mojo in 2001. The main contenders were ‘Lamplight,’ sung by Robin, and ‘First Of May,’ sung by Barry. When ‘First Of May’ was picked, Robin jumped ship. First Of May’ is on the Bee Gees’ Odessa album, which can be bought here. Follow the official Bee Gees Best Of playlist.

About First Of May lyrics. The Bee Gees were a pop music group formed in 1958. Their lineup consisted of brothers Barry, Robin, and Maurice Gibb. The trio were successful for most of their decades of recording music, but they had two distinct periods of exceptional success: as a popular music act in the late 1960s and early 1970s, and as prominent performers of the disco music era in the mid-to-late 1970s. But you and I, our love will never die, But guess well cry come first of may. The apple tree that grew for you and me, I watched the apples falling one by one.

Translations: Chinese, French Portuguese, Spanish. A A. First of May. When I was small, and Christmas trees were tall, we used to love while others used to play. But you and I, our love will never die, but guess we'll cry come first of May. And I recall the moment of them all, the day I kissed your cheek and you were gone

First of May. Из альбома: Odessa. 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, someone 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. And I recall the moment of them all, the day I kissed your cheek and you were gone.
