Scots Sangs Fur Schools

Traditional and new Scots songs for use in Scottish schools

p5/6 autumn song

Autumn rises up when summer dies
Rivers of leaves flow fast
Leaves like a colourful waterfall
Red, gold and brown fly past

High as a kite they soar
Like a kite come whooshing down
So you and me can have leaf fights
Red, gold and brown

You fly your kite as high as you can
While the cold breeze blows in your face
Noisy geese go flying south
To a warmer brighter place

Autumn sits by the open fire
Or snuggles under the duvet
Jack Frost pays us a visit
It gets spooky early every day

Autumn's the smell of warm tomato soup
Fine new colours appear
Animals hibernate and leave us lonely
In the autumn of our year
