"The Wind"

       
  1. When the wind is in the East,
It's neither good for man nor beast,
It's neither good for man nor beast.
 
 
2.
When the wind is in the West,
The corn and clover grow the best,
The corn and clover grow the best.
 
  3. When the jolly North Wind blows,
It brings the cold and drifting snows,
It brings the cold and drifting snows.
 
  4. When the gentle South Wind blows,
The flow'rs their petals all unclose,
The flow'rs their petals all unclose.
