  1. Tune ‘ Did you ever see a lassie’

My- eyes can see it's spring-time, it's spring-time, it's spring-time.
My- eyes can see it's spring-time, the grass is so green!
The green grass, the flowers, the sunshine and showers.
My- eyes can see it's spring-time and I am so glad.

My-ears can hear it's spring time, it's spring time, it's spring time.
My- ears can hear it's spring-time, the birds sweetly sing.
The birds sing, the lambs bleat, the frogs croak, the bees buzz.
My- ears can hear it's spring time, and I am so glad.

My-body can feel's it's spring time, it's spring time, it's spring time.
my-body can feel its spring time, the air is so warm.
The warm air, the breez-es, no frost and no freez-es.
My- body can feel it's spring time, and I am so glad!

 

2.Sung to ‘Miss Polly’

Put up your umbrella when the rain comes down.
Wear a happy smile, and wipe away a frown.
Splash in all the puddles and do a little dance.
Rain is just the thing we need for new spring plants.

 

3.Sung to: "Deck the Halls"

Do you hear the pitter patter? Hear the little raindrops falling down.
Can you see the splashing water? All the little raindrops on the ground.
Time to get our big umbrellas We don't want to get our hair all wet.
If you wear your boots and raincoat, We will go outside and splash a bit!

See the flowers swing and sway, in our springtime garden.
