Lyrics are here on Mudcat: DARK DECEMBER (Graeme Miles) posted by Virginia Tam 09 Jan 09
DARK DECEMBER
(Graeme Miles)

Oh should we curse the winter
For being e'er so long
When the trees are black and groaning
And every leaf is gone
And from the silent blackthorn bush
There comes no small bird's song

Oh should we curse the winter
Oh should we curse the winter
Oh should we curse the winter
And December most of all

Oh should we curse the winter
For being e'er so cold
When the sheep together huddle
To keep warm in their fold
And a man don't leave his fireside
Unless that man be bold

Chorus

Oh should we curse the winter
For being e'er so bleak
When a man turns up his collar
To guard his frozen cheek
And hurries through the icebound streets
Through rain or sleet or squall

Chorus

Oh should we curse the winter
For being e'er so dark
When the sun is late in rising
But early to depart
When the bitter northern blizzard winds
Freeze our very hearts

Chorus

No we should not curse the winter
With its icy wind and storms
Likewise the cold and darkness
No man on Earth should scorn
For it was dark December
When the Christ child he was born

No we should not curse the winter
No we should not curse the winter
No we should not curse the winter
And December least of all
