Looking for a Spring Song

Bill wrote me…

In the 50s, in Montreal, girls used to celebrate Spring with skipping ropes and elastics. While playing the elastic game they sung a “ditty” that went somewhat like this…

Yolem a Kaiser,Yokem addiay….

Do you know what I am referring to?

If anyone is familiar with this ditty, please comment below.

I also welcome other songs and poems celebrating Spring.

    I am looking for a song about the Summer in another language. I already have a song in Spanish about Spring (De Colores), a song in French about the Autumn (Couleurs d’automne), and a song in Japanese about the Winter (Yuki). Now I just need a song about the summer. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Monique translated the German song about summer for you. You can find it at the link below…

    Trarira, der Sommer, der ist da! – Tilitum, The Summer Has Come

    Longer version here http://www.hallo-kinder.gk-kunte.de/liedsomm.html
    More German songs about Summer (without music) are at:
