The Snows They Melt The Soonest

This song is by Gandalf's Fist and appears on the album Winter Is Coming (2012).

O, the snow it melts the soonest when the winds begin to sing;
And the corn it ripens fastest when the frosts are setting in;
And when a woman tells me that my fyace she'll soon forget,
Before we part, I wad a crown, she's fain to follow't yet.

The snow it melts the soonest when the wind begins to sing;
And the swallow skims without a thought as long as it is spring;
But when spring goes, and winter blows, my lass, an ye'll be fain,
For all your pride, to follow me, were't cross the stormy main.

O, the snow it melts the soonest when the wind begins to sing;
The bee that flew when summer shined, in winter cannot sting;
I've seen awa lasses' anger melt betwix'd the night and morn,
Ah it's surely not a harder thing to tame a woman's scorn.

So bid me not farweell dear - no farewell I'll receive,
For you shall set me to the stile, and kiss and take your leave;
But I'll stay here till the woodcock comes, and the 'Martin takes his wing,
Since the snow aye melts the soonest, lass, when the wind begins to sing... to sing...
