(words & music by gene maclellan)
Beneath this snowy mantle cold and clean
The unborn grass lies waiting
For its coat to turn to green
The snowbird sings a song he always sings
And speaks to me of flowers
That will bloom again in spring

When i was young my heart was young then too
Anything that it would tell me,
That's the thing that i would do
But now i feel such emptiness within
For the thing that i want most in life
Is the thing i can't win

Spread your tiny wings and fly away
And take the snow back with you
Where it came from on that day
The one i love forever is untrue
And if i could you know
That i would fly away with you

The breeze along the river seems to say
That she'll only break my heart again
Should i decide to stay
So little snowbird take me with you when you go
To that land of gentle breezes
Where the peaceful waters flow
