Melody Time

Melody Time

Melody Time

It's time to swing along

To a happy land of sound

Where love is the thing

Melody Time

It's time for sweet romance

Won 't you give your heart a chance

To join in and sing?

Take a tip from the birds

You don 't need words

For music has charm

It's the language of love

When your love's in your arms

Rhythm and rhyme

Sure help a heart along

So come on and sing a song

It's Melody Time

It's Melody Time

It's Melody Time,

time to hitch your wagon to a song,

as a song is the one and only thing

that will take you to the land

where music is king.

So join in the fun.

There's something here for everyone.

You'll find rhythm, romance,

reason, rhyme,

something ridiculous.

Something sublime!

You can 't go wrong if you swing along

Come to thejubilee

It's Melody Time

The memory of wintertime long ago,

of clear, crisp air

and new-fallen snow,

of frost on a windowpane,

of sleigh-bells heard from the lane.

In this wonderland,

romance is the theme,

for this is the story

of love's young dream.

Don 't you kind of love December

When the merry snowbells chime?

We're together

Once upon a wintertime

Every single snowflake falling

Plays a jingle down your spine

Lovely weather

Once upon a wintertime

On the frozen pond,

folks are swaying

Sweetheart, who cares?

We'll have more fun sleighing

Behind two chestnut mares

When we say,

''Goodbye, December, ''

Merry bells no longer chime

We'll remember

Once upon a wintertime

Don 't you kind of love December

When the merry snowbells chime?

We're together

Once upon a wintertime

Every single snowflake falling

Plays a jingle down your spine

Here we are together, lovely weather

Once upon a wintertime

Jingle bells, jingle all the way

On the frozen pond,

folks are swaying

Sweetheart, who cares?

We'll have more sleighing

Behind two chestnut mares

When we say, ''Goodbye, December, ''

Merry bells no longer chime

We'll remember

Once upon a wintertime

Remember December

Once upon a wintertime

On the frozen pond,

folks are swaying

Sweetheart, who cares?

We'll have more fun sleighing

Behind two chestnut mares

When we say, ''Goodbye, December, ''

Merry bells no longer chime

We'll remember

Once upon a wintertime

Freddy Martin,

an admirer of the classics,

inspired by Rimsky-Korsakov's

Flight of the Bumble Bee,

interprets this fantasy

in his unique style.

In a furious flight,

a confused character tries to escape

from the hectic harmony

of an instrumental nightmare.

In American folklore, mighty men have

left the symbols of their greatness.

There was Paul Bunyan's axe.

John Henry's hammer.

Davy Crockett's rifle.

Then, unexpectedly,

one comes upon a tinpot hat,

a bag of appleseed and a holy book.

These are the symbols

of one of the mightiest men of all,

John Chapman, a real-life pioneer.

However, reality has given way

to legend.

Today, we know him simply

as Johnny Appleseed.

This is his story, told by

an old settler who knew Johnny well.

Listen.

Every time I see an apple-blossom

sky, I think of Johnny Appleseed.

Them clouds up there

ain't really clouds at all, no, sir!

There wouldn't be no apple-blossom

sky if it weren't for...

But now, hold on here.

I'd better start at the beginning.

Johnny lived on a farm

near Pittsburgh.

The year was 1 806 or there around.

You'd say Johnny Appleseed

never would make a pioneer,

he was such a scrawny little fellow.

That didn't faze Johnny.

He had his apple trees, the

morning sun and the evening breeze.

The Lord is good to me

So I thank the Lord

For giving me the things I need
