lyrics

"The Greenman of the Forest"
by Cernowain Greenman © 2011

1.As wintertime becomes the spring
And the snow melts into the ground
When the day is growing longer
Mister Greenman comes around
He causes the trees to leaf
And he makes the vine grow long
He rises up to give new life
As he sings his happy song:


CH: I am the Greenman! I am the Greenman!
I am the Greenman, young and robust.
I am the Greenman! I am the Greenman!
I am the Greenman of the Forest!


2. Leaping, jumping, happy bumping
The rabbits hear his tune
Birds and snakes and foxes mate
The flowers are in bloom
With the Greenman by his side
Our Mother Earth comes alive
Their happy magick fills the air
Joyful love is everywhere (CH)


3. You can hear his laughter
As the south wind starts a-whirlin’
Back behind the sacred oak
Where the druids are now circlin’
Deep in the underbrush
Where the chipmunks love to roam
Come with me and we’ll play all day
In the Greenman’s happy home (CH)
