AUTUMN TO MAY Lyrics - Peter, Paul & Mary

Review The Song (1)

Oh once I had a little dog, his color it was brown
I taught him for to whistle, to sing and dance and run
His legs they were fourteen yards long, his ears so very wide
Around the world in half a day, upon him I could ride.

Sing Tarry-O Day, Sing Autumn to May.

Oh once I had a little frog, he wore a vest of red
He leaned upon a silver cane, a top hat on his head. He's speak of far off places, of things to see and do,
And all the Kings and Queens he'd met while sailing in a shoe.

Sing Tarry-O Day, Sing Autumn to May.

Oh once I had a flock of sheep, they grazed upon a feather
I'd keep them in a music box from wind or rainy weather
And every day the sun would shine, they'd fly all through the town
To bring me back some golden rings, and candy by the pound.

Sing Tarry-O Day, Sing Autumn to May.

Oh once I had a downy swan, she was so very frail
She sat upon an oyster shell and hatched me out a snail
The snail had changed into a bird, the bird to butterfly
And he who tells a bigger tale would have to tell a lie.

Sing Tarry-O Day, Sing Autumn to May.

Story behind lyrics | Reviewer: Jean Druffner | 3/8/14

Autumn to May is a favorite song of mine. I would like to know the tales behind each of the verses so that I could weave the tales into a story and sing the song with children. Can anyone enlighten me about the tales?
