  • Must fix the fix the fence by the ache of plot
    Two young foxes have been nosing around
    The lambs and the chickens won't feel safe until it's done

    I Must dig a drain by the carrot patch
    The whole crop spoils if it gets too damp
    And where will we be with an empty store?
    When winter comes

    When winter comes
    And food is scare
    We'll warn our toes to stay indoors
    When summer's gone
    We'll fly away
    And find the sun
    When winter comes

    I must find the time to plant some trees
    In the meadow where the river flows
    In time to come, they'll make good shade
    For some poor soul

    When winter comes
    And food is scare
    We'll warn our toes to stay indoors
    When summer's gone
    We're gonna fly away
    And find the sun
    When winter comes

    Must fix the fix the fence by the ache of plot
    Two young foxes have been nosing around
    And the lambs and the chickens won't feel safe until it's done

    When winter comes
    And food is scare
    We'll warn our toes to stay indoors
    When summer's gone
    We're gonna fly away
    And find the sun
    When winter comes
    And find the sun
    When winter comes
