Hone up your wits and wipe away the fog
Hone up your wits and wipe away the fog
Got to see through a shadow to catch a groundhog
Oh, groundhog.

We celebrate on Groundhog Day at my house. "Got to have Spam, dad." Spam??? "Yeah. Ground hog." As unappetizing as is a can of hormel, tastier than some of the dishes posted at Mudcat on the 1999 groundhog post. Here's a song for the day, if anyone cares to finish it.

Hope Art Thieme joins to have a little fun
Hope Art Thieme joins to have a little fun
But look out groundhog for the 12-gauge puns
Oh, groundhog

Big Mick looks the groundhogs in the eyes
Big Mick looks the groundhogs in the eyes
"You can end this hunt if you organize"
Oh, groundhog

To Harlow leads the groundhog's path
To Harlow leads the groundhog's path
He's stopping for a drink with Mr. McGrath
Oh, groundhog

In UK there is a rhyme about Candlemass (Groundhog day equivalent, sort of.....) that says something like if Candlemass is dry, Winter is by, if Candlemass wet, there's more winter yet. So if it p's with rain on Tuesday, we've got more winter to come, and the stupid crocuses that have been flowering for a week in my garden had better watch out. They even beat the snowdrops this year!

Ok, so I felt guilty urging y'all on without making my own contribution. Here it is, for what it's worth:

Micca brings the whiskey over
Micca brings the whiskey over
He's done forgot what a groundhog's for
Oh Groundhog!

Caitrin passes the cookies out
Caitrin passes the cookies out
But the groundhog's turning up his snout
Oh Groundhog!

Alison whistles up a tune
Alison whistles up a tune
See the groundhog dancin' 'neath the moon
Oh Groundhog!

Amos pens another song
Amos pens another song
But the groundhog thinks he takes too long
Oh Groundhog!

Catspaw plays his pickle kazoo
Catspaw plays his pickle kazoo
Then he drops it down the loo
Oh Groundhog!

Áine writes it down in Irish
Áine writes it down in Irish
But Philippa thinks it's much too stylish
Oh Groundhog!

Elle heals animals all day

Liz, tS:

You may mean:
Chanted on Candlemas Eve...
If the sun shines bright on Candlemas Day,
The half of the winter's not yet away


English Folk-Rhymes, GF Northall, 1892.

Also, a verse from "All in the Morning," sung by Sam Hinton on 'Tis the Season, (which I recommend)

It was on Candlemas Day and all in the morning,
They visited The Temple with our heavenly king,
And was this not a joyful thing,
And "sweet Jesus," they called him by name.

I hate writing yet *another* verse using my own name; but, Amos, you've inspired to use one of my favorite Texas words:

Áine's looking for a javelina
Áine's looking for a javelina
Gonna sprinkle its back with jalapeena
Oh Groundhog!

InOBU is lookin' grim

Groundhog plays the pipes better than him
Oh Groundhog!

Rick is wondering what's the fuss

Hog puts his pants on just like us

Lost his tipper, now ain't he glum

Groundhog Day
(Apologies to Martina McBride/Independence Day)

Well he seemed all right by dawn's early light
Though he looked barely better than dead
He tried to pretend the snow was all gone
But an icicle fell on his head
And I was hiding behind my window
In my warm house determined to stay
So I oggled him then as he crawled from his den
On Groundhog Day

Well word gets around in a small, small town
They said he was going to come out
They watched him emerge and stand on the verge
Of begining to put winter to rout

Some folks whispered and some folks talked
As he saw that he blocked the sun's ray
And he just turned around, went back into the ground
On Groundhog Day

(CHORUS)
Let come the spring, Let the birdies sing
Let the whole world know that today is a day of reckoning
Let's stop shoveling snow, let the grasses grow
Roll the snow away, let the children play
It's Groundhog Day

Well I remember one year it was cloudy and drear
By the time that the groundhog came out
He sniffed the air, at the groud he did stare
"No shadow" we all began to shout
And spring came no faster, though the small furry bastard
Predicted it would, in his way
Talk about your folklore...
It's Groundhog Day

The ground hog is a funny bloke
watch him run when shotguns smoke
O'er the fields and faraway
Running like hell from the hunters shot
exerting every ounce of strength he's got
Oh poor old Groundhog

When he stops God only knows
eats his breakfast then onward goes
Finds a field that's soft with loam
digging like a mole to make a home
Worrying like hell about the garden gnome
Oh poor old Groundhog

Wait till the owner find his hole
This time wont be guns he fears
Off o'er the hills to save his soul All around the lawn the smoke appears
Time to gather up and run M'dears
Oh poor old Groundhog

Go 'Catters! I'm going to have so much fun adding all the cookie and groundhog songs to the Songbook! All you guys that contributed songs be sure and let me know if there is a tune that goes with your song so I can note that in the Songbook.

Again, you are all just 'mahvahlahs', simply 'mahvahlas'!!

Dear Caitlin McGillicuddy:

Thanks for the kind remark. I have made about five gallons of your cookie dough but had to go out to dinner before I could bake it. It is setting in the frige. Will this cause any problem if I take it out tomorrow and let it reach room temperature before I drag, drop and bake the l'il angels?

Gotta go clean up the galley now! Thanks for the recipe!!

I honestly don't know if it would make any difference or not, Amos. I've never tried it. I can't think of any reason why refrigeration would mess them up, though.
And the dough is good, too! You can taste the Kahlua more. ;)

Well, I'll try baking them up this evening while I minister to Frisco Duck, my pocket parrot, who is feeling poorly and has taken to puling out his own feathers in distress. I am worried about him. He's not getting enough attention, or else he has some kind of a physical problem. But maybe the smell of those Caitrin Cookies will put him straight!
