Sing the Winter Away

Words and music by Robbie Smith

Oh, the winter frost is settling in
And I know the snows will soon begin
Into the air the leaves are swirled
The world goes ‘round – ‘round goes the world

And the sun’s so slow to brighten the dawn
The autumn harvest time has long since gone
And in the field a scarecrow stands
No crops to guard – just lonely lands

But we’ve got mem’ries so kind and clear
Gathered in warmer times to bring good cheer
To fill our hearts and souls with mirthful song
To keep us safe and glad all winter long

And we’ll sing the winter away, sing the winter away
Though it may be cold and gray outside it’s warm within
So let’s sing the winter away, sing the winter away
In our hearts we’ll dance and play and soon it’ll be spring

Lah lah lah lah lah…Lah lah lah lah lah
Lah lah lah lah lah-ah-ah-ah-ah
Lah lah lah lah lah…Lah lah lah lah lah

Aye, a wint’ry pall has covered the hill
The wind grows strong and then grows stronger still
And the shutters quake with every gust
The storms must come as come they must…

But we’ve got mem’ries so kind and clear
Gathered in warmer times to bring good cheer
To fill our hearts and souls with mirthful song
To keep us safe and glad all winter long

And we’ll sing the winter away, sing the winter away
The glow of summer yet will stay if to the light we cling
So let’s sing the winter away, sing the winter away
In our hearts we’ll dance and play and soon it’ll be spring

And we’ll sing the winter away, sing the winter away
Though it may be cold and gray outside it’s warm within
So let’s sing the winter away, sing the winter away
In our hearts we’ll dance and play and soon it’ll be spring
Yes, in our hearts we’ll dance and play and soon
And soon – it’ll be spring
