Song

The trees are shedding all their leaves, all their leaves, all their leaves.
The trees are shedding all their leaves to make the winter grow.

Why does the winter get so cold? Get so cold? Get so cold?
Why does the winter get so cold? With ice and frozen snow?

To let the fire logs warm our toes, warm our toes, warm our toes.
To let the fire logs warm our toes. The winter storms and blows.

The dead leaves feed the quiet earth, quiet earth, quiet earth.
The dead leaves feed the quiet earth. 'Til springtime flowers birth.

Why do the seasons come and go? Come and go? Come and go?
Why do the seasons come and go? Why do they travel so?

Why the earth's in orbit 'round the sun, 'round the sun, 'round the sun.
Why the earth's in orbit 'round the sun, both near and far to tilt.

Why doesn't that word rhyme along? Rhyme along? Rhyme along?
Why doesn't that word rhyme along? Like the rest of the song?

Because the words fell out that way, out that way, out that way.
Because the words fell out that way. That's all I have to say.
