Now all the woods are waking, the sun is rising high!
Wake up, now! Get up, now! Before the dew is dry!

NOW ALL THE WOODS ARE WAKING is a round. There are no more lyrics beyond what you posted.

It is on the children's album "My Best Friend : Songs to Grow On" by Lisa Monet. You can hear it on Spotify.

Also, it's in at least one songbook: Round the World : Teaching Harmony with Multicultural Rounds and Canons by Cheryl Lavender (Milwaukee, WI : Hal Leonard Corporation, 2012)

You can see the music notation in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ijQgz1kIE8.

There is an MP3 file on this page, of some adults singing the round.

Children should not be taught such nonsense that dew can become dry, for the sole reason that the lyricist could not think of a rhyme for "evaporated", such as:

Now, kids, don't be belated,
the dew's evaporated,
the nightingale has mated,
but oops! that is X-rated!

Hello, Jim. Thanks for finding all those sites! I have made MIDI's of the round, melody and three-part, and I've sent them to Joe for posting here.

Then if somebody makes an ABC of the MIDI's, we'll have both history, lyrics and music for this charming round.

It is best sung in eight voices, at one measure distance.

At first googling I got the impression that Lisa Monet was the author, which would make her a shameless epigon. At a second glance however, I realized that the round is declared traditional, which makes Lisa Monet a shameless self-promoter but grants some licence to the lyrics and composition.

Here is the ABC:

X:1
T:Now All the Woods are Waking
C:Trad. eight-part round
M:4/4
L:1/4
K:D
A,| D D E "^2." E | F2 G "^3." G | A d c "^4." B | A2 z
w:Now all the woods are wak-ing, the sun is ris-ing high!
"^5." A | d2 A "^6." A | d2 A "^7." G | F F E "^8." E | D2 z :|]
w:Wake up, now! Get up, now! Be-fore the dew is dry!

Does anyone know its age and origin?

I tried to learn more but didn't get anywhere. It occurs in a couple of anthologies, but the sellers don't put publication dates on the anthologies.
