about

We like to think of this one as a sort of medieval ‘Heard It Through The Grapevine’!

lyrics

Hyacinths pink and blue
Love no longer true
White magnolia tree
Why have you turned from me

Oh what’s this I hear
In a swallow’s tear
I can hear
That I am the fool of spring

Mockingbird, goldfinch, wren
How can I trust you again
Thrush in a blackthorn tree
Why have you turned from me

Oh what’s this I hear
In a swallow’s tear
I can hear
That I am the fool of spring

How could you use me so
Somebody should have told me, why did nobody tell me
I was the last to know
Everywhere I hear the sound of laughter

Lambs on the mountainside
She is to be your bride
Salmon turn to the sea
Why have you turned from me

Oh what’s this I hear
In a swallow’s tear
I can hear
That I am the fool of spring
