Seeing all the months of the year threads coming up. I thought I would provide one song that covers them all. https://youtu.be/P4EekhdlbZ4


Maybe this will work: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9DauWbuEjhg

Flanders & Swan?
January brings the snow,
Makes your feet and fingers glow.

February's ice and sleet,
Freeze the toes right off your feet.
Welcome, March, with wint'ry wind,
Would thou weren't not so unkind.

April brings the sweet spring showers,
On and on for hours and hours.

Farmers fear unkindly May,
Frost by night and hail by day.

June just rains and never stops,
Thirty days and spoils the crops.

In July the sun is hot,
Flanders: Is it shining?
Swann: No it's not!

Both: August, cold and dank and wet,
Brings more rain than any yet.

Bleak September's mist and mud,
Is enough to chill the blood.
Then October adds a gale,
Wind and slush and rain and hail.

Dark November brings the fog,
Should not do it to a dog.

Freezing wet December, then...
Both: b***** January again!

Five months in this song

What do you do?
In April, I open my bill
In May, I sing night and day
In June, I change my tune
In July, far off I fly
In August, away
I must.

PLOUGHBOY'S GLORY
There is April, there is May, there is June and July,
What a pleasure to see the corn grow.
And when August draws nigh, we will reap sheaves and tie,
Go down with our scythes for to mow.

January, February by Barbara Dickson

January February
I don't understand
Why it is you say you're leaving
Then you turn around
You won't settle down

You've got both feet off the ground
January February
Don't you come around

TWO YOUNG BRETHREN

There is April, there is May, there is June and July
What a pleasure it is for to see the corn grow.
In August we will reap it, we will cut, sheaf and bind it
And go down with our scythes for to mow.

A WONDERFUL GUY

I'm as trite and as gay as a daisy in May,
A cliché comin' true!
I'm bromidic and bright
As a moon-happy night
Pourin' light on the dew!
I'm as corny as Kansas in August,
High as a flag on the Fourth of July!

APRIL COME SHE WILL

April come she will
When streams are ripe and swelled with rain;
May, she will stay,
Resting in my arms again.

June, she'll change her tune,
In restless walks she'll prowl the night;
July, she will fly
And give no warning to her flight.

August, die she must,
The autumn winds blow chilly and cold;
September I'll remember
A love once new has now grown old.

What about Seasons? Was trying to recall Graeme Miles 'Playing at Games of War' which mentions four seasons before his punch line. (Starts on Winter - 'When the snow comes down from Norway')
As well as habitually mentioning months and dates I have (had) the bad habit of seasons too. eg "The Summer sun is fading as the year grows old"

A STRATON CAROL OF THE MONTHS

January's when cold winds do blow
February brings us frost and snow
March is when young lambs do play
April brings us flowers so gay
May is when the fields are green
June is when new hay is seen
July's days are very warm
August brings the thunderstorm
September's harvest fields are clear
October's when we brew fine beer
November's dreariest days in the year
December ends the fleeting year
