Geri wrote looking for help with a childhood song from England:
As a child in the UK (England) we used to sing a song at school (infant or juniors) that I thought started like this:
Summer has come from the sunny lands,
Summer is here again,
Bringing the birdies (not sure of this line)
In every woodland lane
Chirruping, chirruping high and low.
That is all I can remember.
This song has haunted me for years and I am now 65, it would be an old song from the late 40’s to the 50’s. I have searched and searched but found nothing I am not sure I have all the word’s down correctly but it does go something like that.
Can anyone help me please.
If anyone can help with this song, please let us know in the comments below.
Thanks in advance!
UPDATE: We received some lyrics to this song in the comments below along with the notes so we could create a midi tune of Summer has come from the sunny lands. Thanks to Christopher Hall for the notes and Monique Palomares of the French and Spanish version of Mama Lisa’s World for creating the midi!
Now you can also hear an mp3 of Sunny has come from the sunny land as played on the piano by Julie Newcombe. Thanks Julie!
