Subject: Lyr Req: Summer has come from the sunny lands

Hi

At school 30+ years ago we used to sing this and I can only remember the first two lines and a bit of the third:

Summer has come from the sunny lands
Summer is here again
Bringing the ...

The rest eludes me. The lyrics are probably quite trite but I can't find anyone else who remembers this and have searched on the web in vain. Can anyone help please?

I recall singing it at school in the 50s but remember no more of the words than you do, sorry.

The only hit on Google is .... this thread!

Heck, the only song I can find so far with even piece of a phrase in it is Lula by Stephen Foster.

Summer has come from the sunny lands
Summer is here to stay
Bringing her birdies to sing their songs in every wood & lane.
Cheer upping cheer upping (?) loud & sweet high on the rocking trees
Who was it taught you the way to fly & gave you those tiny wings

I don't know the rest:0(

Cheer upping = Chirrupping = Chirping

Young Hube,

The song you are trying to remember is a sunday school song we used to sing about the greatness of God.

Sorry I can't help further with any other lyrics.........

Can Anyone Help with a Song with the - Mama Lisa

The below appears on Mama Lisa's blog.



Summer has come from the sunny land,
Summer is here again,
Bringing the birdies to sing a song,
In every wood and lane.

Chiruping, chirruping loud and sweet,
High in the rocking tree,
Dear little birdies I think you sing,
The prettiest songs to me.

Tell me dear birdies I'd like to know
who was it taught you to sing?
Who was it taught you the way to fly.
and gave you each tiny wing?

The dear Lord above us all,
Loving and kind and true,
Twas he who has taught us the way to sing
and taught us the way to fly too

Thank you dear birdies for telling me,
I am so glad to know,
Now if my friends ask me, I can say,
A little bird told me so!

Another posting from that same blog has a version that sounds more convincing to me:


Summer has come from the sunny land,
Summer is here again;
Bringing the birdies to sing their songs
In every wood and lane.

Chirruping, chirruping loud and sweet
High in a rocking tree;
Dear little birdies I think you sing
Your pettiest song for me.

But I should very much like to know
How did you learn to sing?
Who was it taught you the way to fly
And gave you each tiny wing?

"We have a Father," the birdies said,
"Loving and kind and true;
"He who has taught us to sing and fly
"Will think of the children too."

Thank you, dear birdies, for telling me;
I am so glad to know.
Now, when I'm asked, I can always say,
"A little bird told me so!"

The tune, for those who are unfamiliar, is in waltz time with notes as follows (each note value one beat unless stated in brackets):
(Top)C A F (bottom)C F G A(2) (top)C C(3)
C A F C(2) A G(6)
C A F C F G A(2) C C(2)
C C A F C(2) A F(6)

I recited this today to old and young alike when a bird was singing in a residential home.
I have looked here to find out more about it for a 6 year old who wishes to learn it.
My remembered version differs very slightly:

Summer has come from a sunny land,
Summer is here again.
Bringing the birdies to sing their songs
In every wood and lane.

Chirruping, chirruping, loud and clear
High in the rocking tree
Dear little birdies i think you sing
Your prettiest songs for me.

But I should very much like to know
How did you learn to sing?
Who was it taught you to sing and fly
And gave you each tiny wing?

"We have a Father", the birdies said,
"Loving and kind and true.
He who has taught us to sing and fly
Will think of the children too".

Thank you , dear birdies, for telling me;
I am so glad to know.
Now when I'm asked, I can always say
"A little bird told me so!"

Tune in key of Fmajor.
C', A, F,C,F,G, A,C',C'.
C',A,F,C,A,G.
D', Bflat, G,D,G,A,Bflat, D',D'.
C'sharp, C',A,F,C,C', F.
