lyrics

mama's making something on the loom
mama's making something on the loom
said when she was little as me
she had a countypin to call her own
now mama's out working the shuttle and the reed
treadles up and down they go

and the web's just coming along
so we can go out kickin' in the leaves
run for your life, get it while you can
'cause tomorrow the school bell rings
and when we get home, there'll be something to see
woven like you'll never believe
when mama's making something on the loom

and there's a cold snap on the air
as she sings The Riddle Song
I'm looking for skips and I will say, "There's no skips to be found!"
she says, "Singin' helps chase the blues away, and children make you laugh out loud."

as the hilltops claim the sun we can say, "Well, ain't it grand?"
there's friendly shapes like a drop or two of rain on a lupin flower
and row by row the color comes through
when mama's making something on the loom
mama's making something on the loom
mama's making something on the loom
