Composing New Lyrics

I love spring break! When else would Madison and I have time to sit and compose new lyrics to a Suzuki violin song? We are really enjoying ourselves together this morning.

We are working on Gavotte today from Suzuki Violin Book 1. Here is what we came up with:
You can find a blossom in all colors here
In my flower jungle I grow lots of cheer
Velvet petals covered in the morning dew
Swaying in the wind saying, "Hi!" to you.
Repeat verse 1
When the sun goes down my jungle comes alive
Busy, busy, busy like a grand beehive
Getting dressed and cooking for the festival
Life at night is never very, awfully dull.
All my royal subjects bow to me.
Waiting, watching, all wanting to see
Three baby blossoms new to our home
Pipsy, Popsy, Tipsy all three.
Repeat verse 3
"Hooray! Hooray! Hooray!" they say.
Ready for a great big rest at day.
Moonlight is fading quickly away
Lighter, brighter. Welcome day!
Repeat verse 4
You can find a blossom in all colors here
All the flowers see the baby blossoms bloom
Watching them with pride, as they grow quickly up
Stretching to sunlight, they wait for rain.
Then the garden gates unlock and people come
Basking in the beauty of the garden sun
Flowers shine and glow and beautify the world
No one knows about the midnight festival.
