    Winter 2019 Chorus Concert Lyrics 

     

    When Sweet Winter Comes Again 

     

    Snowflakes dancing merrily 

    on my window pane! 

    Oh, how my spirit leaps with joy 

    when sweet winter comes again, 

    when sweet winter comes again. 

     

    See them dance, see them whirl, 

    diamonds in flight. 

    Drifting, fleeting, 

    glistening in the light, 

    glistening fields of white. 

     

    (Round) 

    Snowflakes dancing merrily 

    on my window pane! 

    Oh, how my spirit leaps with joy 

    when sweet winter comes again, 

    when sweet winter comes again. 

     

    See them dance, see them whirl, 

    diamonds in flight. 

    Drifting, fleeting, 

    glistening in the light, 

    glistening fields of white. 

     

    (2 Parts) 

    Snowflakes dancing merrily 

    on my window pane! 

    Oh, how my spirit leaps with joy 

    when sweet winter comes again, 

    when sweet winter comes again. 

     

    See them dance, see them whirl, 

    diamonds in flight. 

    Drifting, fleeting, 

    glistening in the light, 

    glistening fields of white. 

    glistening fields of white! 

     

    Little Fox 

     

    Little fox went out on a chilly night,  

    and he prayed for the moon to give him light, 

    for he'd many a mile to go that night 

    before he reached the town-o, town-o, town-o, 

    He'd many a mile to go that night before he reached the town-o. 

     

    He ran till he came to the farmer's pen; 

    the ducks and the geese were kept there-in. 

    "A couple of you will grease my chin 

    before I leave this town-o, town-o, town-o, 

    A couple of you will grease my chin before I leave this town-o." 

     

    Well, he grabbed the grey goose by the neck, 

    And he flung it up across his back, 

    And he didn't mind the quack, quack, quack,  

    And their legs all dangling down-o, down-o, down-o, 

    And he didn't mind the quack, quack, quack,  

    and the legs all dangling down-o. 

    (grey     goose      by the neck and 

    flung      up           his back, 

    quack,   quack,     quack, quack, quack 

    and their legs all dangling down-o, down-o, down-o, 

    quack,   quack,     quack, quack, quack 

    and their legs all dangling down-o) 

     

    Then Old Mother Giggle Gaggle jumped out of bed;  

    Out of the window she popped her head, 

    Crying "John, O John, the grey goose is gone, 

    And the fox is in the town-o, town-o, town-o, 

    Crying "John, O John, the grey goose is gone, and the fox is in the town-o!" 

     

    Little fox, he ran till he reached his den, 

    and there were his little ones, eight, nine, ten. 

    They said, "Daddy, you'd better go back again  

    'cause it must be a very fine town-o, town-o, town-o," 

    They said, "Daddy, you'd better go back again  

    'cause it must be a very fine town-o." 

    (Little fox ran to his den, 

    six, sev'n, eight, nine, ten 

    "Daddy better go back again 

    'cause it must be a very fine town-o, town-o, town-o 

    Daddy better go back again 'cause it must be a very fine town-o) 

     

    Then the fox and his wife without any strife, 

    cut up the goose with a fork and knife. 

    They never had such a super in their life,  

    and the little ones chewed on the bones-o, bones-o, bones-o 

    They never had such a super in their life and the little ones chewed on the bones-o. 

    It's a chilly night and the moon is bright, and the fox is in the town-o. 

     

    Tum Balalaika  

     

    Families gather singing along 

    with instruments playing favorite songs, 

    songs that are loved for many a year 

    Traditions live on, if we hold them dear. 

     

    Listen and learn an old melody 

    as Papa plays in harmony. 

    Mama joins in, and everyone cheers, 

    and so it goes throughout the years. 

     

    Tum bala, tum bala, tum balalaika. 

    Tum bala, tum bala, tum balalaika. 

    Tum balalaika, shpil balalaika 

    Tum balalaika freh lehk zol zahn. 

     

    Songs are recalled and memories made  

    the music lives on and on when it's played. 

    Children are twirling round on the floor 

    to songs they'll remember ever more. 

     

    Tum bala, tum bala, tum balalaika. 

    Tum bala, tum bala, tum balalaika. 

    Tum balalaika, shpil balalaika 

    Tum balalaika freh lehk zol zahn. 

    (rest) Play________ balalaika 

    (rest) Play________ balalaika 

    (rest) Play, shpil balalaika 

    Tum balalaika freh lehk zol zahn. 

    Tum balalaika, shpil balalaika 

    Tum balala___ika_____ Tum balalaika, tum balalaika, Let music play! 

     

     

     

    A La Nanita 

     

    A la nanita nana nanita, e-a, nanita e-a 

    Dear precious little baby, so very sleepy, so very sleepy. 

    A la nanita na-na nanita, e-a, nanita e-a 

    Dear precious little baby, so very sleepy, so very sleepy. 

     

    Sparkling stream that is flowing, bubbling so cheerily; 

    Nightingales in the forest, singing so clearly; 

    Hush while the little cradle rocks him so sweetly. 

    A la nanita nana, nanita e-a 

     

    (E- a, e-a nanita e-a 

    Dear precious little baby, very sleepy. 

    E- a, e-a nanita e-a 

    Dear precious little baby, very sleepy.) 

    A la nanita nana nanita, e-a, nanita e-a 

    Dear precious little baby, so very sleepy, so very sleepy. 

    A la nanita na-na nanita, e-a, nanita e-a 

    Dear precious little baby, so very sleepy, so very sleepy. 

     

     

    No School Tomorrow if it Snows 

     

    The weatherman is saying that snow is on the way. 

    The sun is disappearing. The sky is turning gray. 

    I've listened to the forecast. i hope it isn't wrong. 

    And that is why I sing this song. (That is why I sing this song) 

     

    They'll be no school tomorrow, no school tomorrow 

    no school tomorrow if it snows. 

    They'll be no school tomorrow, no school tomorrow 

    no school tomorrow if it snows. 

    No school, no school  

    no school, if it snows. 

    No school, no school  

    no school, if it snows. 

     

    I'm wishing and I'm hoping that snow will fall tonight. 

    I'm crossing all my fingers so very, very tight. 

    I hope we get a blizzard and snow the whole week long. 

    And that is why I sing this song. (That is why I sing this song) 

     

    They'll be no school tomorrow, no school tomorrow 

    no school tomorrow if it snows. 

    They'll be no school tomorrow, no school tomorrow 

    no school tomorrow if it snows. 

    No school, no school  

    no school, if it snows. 

    No school, no school  

    no school, if it snows. 

     

    And now as dawn is breaking, I jump up from my bed. 

    And yes, I still remember what the weatherman has said. 

    I run straight to the window to see if he is right. (rest) 

    Everything is snowy white. 

     

    There is no school today, no school today, 

    no school today because it snowed. 

    There is no school today, no school today, 

    no school today because it snowed. One more time! 

    There is no school today, no school today, 

    no school today because it snowed. 

    There is no school today, no school today, 

    no school because it snowed. 

    No school, no school  

    no school, if it snows. 

    No school, no school  

    no school, if it snows. 
    Please snow some more!
