3. If You Know All the Seasons

This fun song by The Kiboomers is sung to the tune of If You’re Happy and You Know It:

If you know all the seasons, clap your hands
If you know all the seasons, clap your hands
If you know all the seasons
You’ve got four terrific reasons
To shout out and name the seasons 
Clap your hands

If you really love the winter,
go like this “BRRR”
If you really love the winter,
go like this “BRRR”
Because winter is the season 
When your nose is always freezing 
And you’re shivering and sneezing 
Go like this “BRRR”

In the spring you run and play and shout “HURRAY”
In the spring you run and play and shout “HURRAY”
In the spring the grass is growing 
And a gentle breeze is blowing 
And a warmer sun is glowing Shout “HURRAY”

If you really love the summer, stamp your feet
If you really love the summer, stamp your feet
In the summer you can play
And swim and camp and fish all day 
Oh summer please don’t go away 
Stamp your feet

If you really love the autumn, slap your knees
If you really love the autumn, slap your knees
When it’s beginning to get cold 
And the leaves turn red and gold 
Then it’s back to school you go 
Slap your knees

12. Bed In Summer

This is a poem by Robert Louis Stevenson:

In winter I get up at night,  
And dress by yellow candle-light.  
In summer, quite the other way,  
I have to go to bed by day.  

I have to go to bed and see,
The birds still hopping on the tree.  
Or hear the grown-up people’s feet, 
Still going past me in the street.  

And does it not seem hard to you,  
When all the sky is clear and blue,
And I should like so much to play,  
To have to go to bed by day?
