Autumn to May

This song is by Ann Wilson and Nancy Wilson and appears on the compilation For Our Children (1991).

This song is a cover of "Autumn To May" by Peter, Paul & Mary.
Oh, once I had a little dog
Her color, it was brown
I taught her for to whistle
To sing and dance and run
Her legs, they were 14 yards long
Her ears so very wide
Around the world in half a day
Upon her I could ride

Sing tarry-o day
Sing, Autumn to May

Oh, once I had a little frog
He wore a vest of red
He'd lean upon his silver cane
A top hat on his head
He'd speak of far-off places
Of things to see and do
And all the kings and queens he'd met
While sailing in a shoe

Sing tarry-o day
Sing, Autumn to May

Oh, once I had a flock of sheep
They grazed upon a feather
I'd keep them in a music box
From wind or rainy weather
And every day the sun would shine
They'd fly all through the town
And bring me back some golden rings
And some candy by the pound

Sing tarry-o day
Sing, Autumn to May

Oh, once I had a downey swan
She was so very frail
She sat upon an oyster shell
And hatched me out a snail
The snail had changed into a bird
The bird to a butterfly
And he who tells a bigger tale
Would have to tell a lie

Sing tarry-o day
Sing, Autumn to May
Oh, sing tarry-o day
Sing, Autumn to May
