Green

This one comes from my itunes album – ‘Autumn In The Valley’.

My song – ‘Green’ – is much-loved by kids! The rock and roll beat, the easy-to-learn chorus and the fun clapping parts have made it one of my top hits. The song was inspired by my long and deep connection with nature – especially the valley behind my childhood home.

I’d like to share a wee story. I was in the local convenience store one day recently, when 2 kids recognized me from my musical visits to their school. Emma, Grade 6, said “I remember you from Grade 3. I had SO much fun when you came to sing!”. Then Sloan, Grade 3, said “I remember you from…….Kindergarten!!”. Then I sang the chorus of Green……”Green, green, green…….in nature seen”. And Emma said, with a big smile – “I remember that one! I couldn’t get Sloan to stop singing it!!!”. Sloan just looked at me with those keen, bright eyes full of the wonder of children, and grinned. The same week, I met a woman in her mid-20’s that remembered singing ‘Green’ when she was 8 years old!

Lyrics

* Chorus

Green, green, green, in nature seen
Green, green, green, in nature seen

Green, green, green, in nature seen
Green, green, green, in nature seen

The maple, the oak
The birch, the pine
The cedar, the spruce
The willow so fine

* Repeat Chorus

The hollow, the plain
The mountainside
The meadow, the marsh
The moss beside

* Repeat Chorus

* Repeat Chorus
