Harvest Festival

Harvest Samba

Harvest Samba

1. Cabbages and greens, broccoli and beans,

Cauliflower and roasted potatoes, taste so good to me.

Apricots and plums, ripened in the sun,

Oranges and yellow bananas, good for everyone.

 

It’s another Harvest festival,

when we bring our fruit and vegetables,

‘cause we want to share the best of all the

good things that we’ve been given.

It’s another opportunity, to be grateful for the food we eat,

with a Samba celebration to say thank you to God the father.

 

2. Golden corn and wheat, oats and sugar beet,

fluffy rice and tasty spaghetti, wonderful to eat.

Coffee, cocoa, tea, growing naturally,

Herbs and plants and all kinds of spices, very nice indeed.

 

It’s another…

 

Thank you for the harvest, thank you for your goodness,

For all of the fruit and vegetables and the wonderful things that grow.

(Repeat x4)

 

(n.b. On third/forth time, Year 3 sing verse 1 again):

Cabbages and greens, broccoli and beans,

Cauliflower and roasted potatoes, taste so good to me.

Apricots and plums, ripened in the sun,

Oranges and yellow bananas, good for everyone.

 

It’s another…

 

God the Father

Cha cha cha!

'Let's Harvest'

 Let's Harvest

 

The summer sun is lower in the sky

The leaves on the trees are slowly turning dry

There’s a message on the breeze

It says ‘it’s time; it’s time, oh please’

 

So, let’s harvest – reap what we sow

Let’s harvest - eat what we grow         x2

And when the sun goes down

We’ll share it all around  

 

 The fruit trees bend and nod, the time is now 

The golden fields are ready for the plough

And when our work is done

Then the autumn comes

 

Chorus

 

Ooooh ba ba Repeat x8

 

There’ll be apples and pears, damsons and cherries

Plums and grapes, currants and berries

Barley and wheat to make our toast

Nuts and seeds to dry and roast

Carrots and leeks, peas and beans

More potatoes than you’ve ever seen

We’ll make jams and juice, crumbles and pies

And when nobody’s looking we’ll try the wine!

 

So, let’s harvest – reap what we sow

Let’s harvest - eat what we grow         x2

And when the sun goes down

We’ll share it all around   (repeat x 2)

 

So, let’s harvest – reap what we sow

Let’s harvest - eat what we grow         x2

 

Let’s harvest
