"The Weather Vane""


Look up, look up, good people!
For high upon the steeple
The weather vane has turned again!
'Tis pointing North and showing
That North Wind now is blowing.


Look up, look up, good people!
For high upon the steeple
The weather vane has turned again!
'Tis pointing East and showing
That East Wind now is blowing.

Look up, look up, good people!
For high upon the steeple
The weather vane has turned again!
'Tis pointing West and showing
That West Wind now is blowing.

Look up, look up, good people!
For high upon the steeple
The weather vane has turned again!
'Tis pointing South and showing
That South Wind now is blowing.
