I remember learning a song during America's Bicentennial that began: "Stomp your feet upon the floor, throw the windows open, take a breath of fresh clean air, and dance around the room." Does anyone remember this song? I haven't been able to find it. Thanks, Sheryl

Copied from a blog. I had to guess where to put the line breaks; there were none in my source. Also, the song has some repeats that are not indicated here.


STOMP YOUR FOOT!
Choral Square Dance from "The Tender Land" (an opera)
Words, Horace Everett. Music, Aaron Copland.

Stomp your foot up on the floor.
Throw the windows open,
Take a breath of fresh June air, and dance around the room.
The air is free, the night is warm,
The music's here, and here's my home.
Men must labor to be happy,
Plowing fields and planting rows.
But ladies love a life that's easy:
Churning butter, milking cows,
Gathering eggs, feeding sows.
Mending, cooking, cleaning, ironing, raising families.
Ladies love their fine amusement,
Putting patches on a quilt,
But men prefer to bend their shoulder
To something that will stand when built.
Dancing ladies, making matches,
Playing games, singing snatches.
Romping, frisking, winking, whistling, raising families.
Stomp your foot up on the floor.
Throw the windows open,
Take a breath of fresh June air, and dance around the room.
The air is free, the night is warm,
The music's here, and here's my home.
