Sting - The Snow It Melts The Soonest Lyrics

Oh, the snow it melts the soonest when the winds begin to sing,
And the corn it ripens fastest when the frost is settling in,
And when a woman tells me my face she'll soon forget,
Before we'll part, I'll wage a croon, she's fain to follow't yet.

Oh, the snow it melts the soonest when the winds begin to sing,
And the swallow skims without a thought as long as it is spring;
But when spring goes, and winter blows, my lassie you'll be fain,
For all your pride, to follow me across the stormy main.

Oh, the snow it melts the soonest when the winds begin to sing,
And the bee that flew when summer shone, in winter cannot sting;
I've seen a woman's anger melt betwixt the night and morn,
Oh it's surely not a harder thing to tame a woman's scorn.

Oh, never say me farewell here, no farewell I'll receive,
And you shall set me to the stile and kiss and take your leave;
I'll stay until the curlew calls and the martlet takes his wing,
Oh, the snow it melts the soonest when the winds begin to sing.

    Oh, the snow it melts the soonest when the winds begin tosing,
    And the corn it ripens fastest when the frost is settling in,
    And when a woman tells me my face she'll soon forget,
    Before we'll part, I'll wage a croon, she's fain to follow'tyet.

    Oh, the snow it melts the soonest when the winds begin tosing,
    And the swallow skims without a thought as long as it isspring;
    But when spring goes, and winter blows, my lassie you'llbe fain,
    For all your pride, to follow me across the stormy main.

    Oh, the snow it melts the soonest when the winds begin tosing,
    And the bee that flew when summer shone, in wintercannot sting;
    I've seen a woman's anger melt betwixt the night andmorn,
    Oh it's surely not a harder thing to tame a woman's scorn.

    Oh, never say me farewell here, no farewell I'll receive,
    And you shall set me to the stile and kiss and take yourleave;
    I'll stay until the curlew calls and the martlet takes hiswing,
    Oh, the snow it melts the soonest when the winds begin tosing.
