Deda BS: SPRING, Missing the old Song Challenges (10) BS: SPRING, Missing the old Song Challenges 13 Mar 15


The other day I was explaining the old Song Challenges to my partner of 4 years, and remembered them as the most fun I had in the "aughts". AND the sun is rising earlier and staying longer each day, even up here in Belfast, Maine, where we're recovering from an especially cold and snowy winter. So this song happened (below). Anyone want to join in??
Tune = Tonight I'll be staying here with you.

I see sunlight out the window
I see blue skies out there too
I see songbirds out the door
It's not snowing anymore!
And I'm through singing winter-weary blues!

I was bundled up this morning
Long johns, t-shirts, snow boots too
But that springtime sun came on
That's been missing for so long
And my toes are no longer turning blue!

It's been like the frozen tundra
Long and cold and dark and drear.
Snow slides off the roof like thunder.
But now spring is coming near!

Throw those long johns out the window,
And those socks from LL Bean.
Throw the mittens out the door.
I don't need them anymore,
Pack them all away till next Halloween.

I could really start to wonder
If that snow would ever stop.
The drifts we've all been living under
Start to melt and turn to slop.

I can hear the songbirds' whistle.
Hear the harbormaster, too.
The chunks of sea ice are all gone,
There'll be boats out before long,
And tonight, the whole town will sing along.

I see sunlight out the window
I see blue skies out there too
I see songbirds out the door
It's not snowing anymore!
And I'm through singing winter-weary blues!
