A Song of Bread

Lyrics

(German folk tune, Homer H. Harbour, publ. 1921)

Sing a song of golden wheat, golden wheat, golden wheat,
Sing a song of golden wheat by the breeze blown.
Birds are there, bees are there,
Butterflies in the air,
Sing a song of golden wheat by the breeze blown.

Sing a song of farmer boys, farmer boys, farmer boys,
Sing a song of farmer boys mowing the grain.
Swish they go, slash they go,
Grasses are bending low,
Sing a song of farmer boys mowing the grain.

Sing a song of waterfalls, waterfalls, waterfalls,
Sing a song of waterfalls turning wheels round.
Sift the wheat, stamp the wheat,
Till it is soft and sweet,
Sing a song of waterfalls turning wheels round.

Sing a song of baking day, baking day, baking day,
Sing a song of baking day, coals burning red.
Milk is in, yeast is in,
Ovens are hot within.
Sing a song of baking day, coals burning red.
