Spring Songs & Rhymes
Come to the woods, says Tosie Mosie
Come to the woods, says Johnie Red Hosie
Come to the woods, says Brithers and Three
Come to the woods with (your child's name) and me!
(Adapted from version in The Singing Year)
I'm a little dormouse, I've slept the winter through
In my little nest, I've slept the winter through
Come the Springtime this is what I do: Wake up!
Scratching scratching here, scratching scratching there, looking for my food,
Scratching scratching, scratching scratching everywhere!
I'm a little green frog, I've slept the winter through
Underneath the mud, I've slept the winter through
Come the Springtime, this is what I do: Wake up!
Jumping jumping here, jumping jumping there, looking for my food,
Jumping jumping, jumping jumping everywhere!
Slowly, slowly, very slowly
Creeps the garden snail
Slowly slowly, very slowly, all along the rail.
Quickly quickly, very quickly
Runs the little mouse
Quickly, quickly, very quickly
All around the house!
Snow drop down, Crocus up, Head held down and head held up,
Down to mother earth and up to father sun, Winter is over and Spring has begun.
