Scots Sangs Fur Schools

Traditional and new Scots songs for use in Scottish schools

P5/6 combine harvester song

Here come the combine harvesters
Cutting grains from golden sea fields
Slicing like a knife spreading butter
While birds eat the left-over yield

Juicy crunchy food is dug from the ground
For people like us to eat
Carrots in a funny shape, cabbages and peas
Onions and tatties and neeps

Epic conker battles on the tired old grass
While horses rest in their stable
Food that is Fair Trade, fruits from the trees
Laid on the church harvest table

We celebrate that God has given us food
Thank you for our blessings, we say
For the wonderful crops he gave us
Time to sing hymns and pray
