Subject: Lyr Add: LITTLE WHEEL, SPIN AND SPIN (Sainte-Marie
From: Mad Maudlin
Date: 05 Jul 01 - 08:16 AM

Dear fellow 'catters, I need your help to fill in a word I don't understand in "Little Wheel, Spin And Spin" by Buffy Sainte-Marie...

Little wheel, spin and spin,
Big wheel turn around and around. (twice)

Merry Christmas, Jingle bells,
Christ is born and the devil's in hell.
Hearts they shrink, pockets swell,
Everybody know and nobody tell.

Little wheel...

"Oh, the sins of Cesar's men!"
Cry the pious citizens.
Petty thieves, the five and tens,
And the big wheel turn around and around.

Little wheel...

Blame the angels, blame the fates,
Blame the [....]
Teach your children who to hate
And the big wheel turn around and around.

Little wheel...

Turn your back on weeds you've hoed,
Silly sinful sins you've sowed.
Add your straw to the camel's load,
Pray like hell when the world explode.

Little wheel...

"Swing your girl" the fiddlers say,
Later on the piper pay.
Do-si-do, swing and sway,
Dead will dance on Judgment Day.

Thanks!

Mad Maudlin

I believe it is: "blame the Jews or your sister Kate"

In other words, find a scapegoat.

Cheers,

Little Hawk,

thank you, it's so awful when you like a song and don't understand all the words! (I'm not a native speaker of English, so this happens sometimes...)

Have a nice Day,

MM

Glad to help, MM. I couldn't figure that line out either until I got her songbook, so I'm not surprised you had trouble with it.

I'd forgotten all about this song, thanks! I'd never understood that line either. And just out of curiosity, what IS your native language, MM?

Mrrzy, it's German. Quite close to English, but not close enough :-)

Hey you guys are brilliant I have remembered this song from my teens and never heard it played on the radio in Uk or even managed to get hold of a recording.
Is it possible that anyone could dig out the music or even the tab for this song it has been in my brain for what?
About 25-30 years?
Tha Lady that wrote it and all those other wonderful songs should be far more widely known and appreciated over here.
Cheers tim In Grimsy UK.

Don't know what the deal is with this thread being anonymously refreshed by someone pasting the incomplete lyrics from the OP but I note that Peace never posted the chords.

This song is featured in Sing Out vol. 53 No. 2 and can be heard on the singout.org site ATP.

The score in Sing Out indicates that this is a one-chord song, in this case Em (or, given what they say about capoing at the third fret, possibly Gm, although the key signature on the score is Em).
