Song of the Seasons


(Melody by W. Mattfeld, publ. 1893, Lyrics by J.H. Haaren)

1. Brightest season of the year,
Joyous spring again is here,
Birds from every branch and tree
Carol forth their melody.

Tra la la la la la, tra la la
Tra la la la la la, tra la la
Tra la la la la la, tra la la
Tra la la, tra la la la

2. Summer sun and summer rain
Cover fields with golden grain,
That the harvest fruitful be
Let us sing our melody.  Refrain

3. Autumn, saddest time of all,
When the leaves begin to fall,
But we will not sigh with thee,
For we‘ll sing our melody. Refrain

4. Winter, sometimes bleak and cold,
Often bright and clear and bold,
Thou cans’t make us wild with glee,
So we’ll sing our melody. Refrain
