AUTUMN TO MAY (Peter Yarrow / Noel Paul Stookey) Peter, Paul, & Mary Also recorded by : Ann Wilson Oh once I had a little dog, his color it was brown I taught him for to whistle, to sing and dance and run His legs they were fourteen yards long, his ears so very wide Around the world in half a day, upon him 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, Of 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 To bring me back some golden rings, 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 butterfly And he who tells a bigger tale would have to tell a lie. Sing Tarry-O Day, Sing, Autumn to May.
