    Song:
    The Farmer Plants the Seeds
    (To the tune of "Farmer in the Dell")
    The farmer plants the seeds, the farmer plants the seeds,
    Hi, Ho a Derry O, the farmer plants the seeds.

    The rain begins to fall...
    The sun begins to shine...
    The plants begin to grow...

    Way Up in the Sky
    Way up in the sky, the big birdies fly;
    While down in the nest, the little birdies rest.
    With a wing on the left and a wing on the right,
    The little birdies sleep, most all of the night.
    Sssshhhhh, don't wake up the birdies...

    The bright sun comes up, the moon goes away,
    "Good morning! Good morning!" the little birdies say.
