MAG (inactive) Lyr Req: Turn Ye Seasons (Andy Barnes) (50) Lyr Add: TURN, YE SEASONS (Andy Barnes)^^ 01 Jan 01

I have an awful feeling you wanted this for last night, but here goes:

Solstice is the time for chanting
Song to welcome back (2 notes) the (two notes) light.
(? Then) our Yuletide brings rejoicing
For the spotless rose delight.

CHO: Turn, turn, ye seasons turn
Summer dies and autumn follows.
Turn, turn ye seasons turn
And spring comes after winter.

Springtime brings on all the greening
Tilling, planting, sowing chants.
Mayday brings the celebration
Turn around and join the dance. (CHORUS)

Summer is the season of growing
Green fields turn to gold in the sun.
Autumn is the time of/for harvest
Praise and song when work's all done.

The tenth month brings the Eve of All Hallows
And ghosts that are gone do walk the Earth.
Then once again we're around to Yuletide
Praise and song to the baby's birth.

O there's a song for every season
Sing it; sing it from your heart.
There is none without a reason
Each one playing its own part. (CHORUS)

It works as a round, harmonizes easily, a divides into choral singing. My tape unfortunately gives no source or credit. Enjoy. -- MA
