Winter in the Black Forest, near Freudenstadt

Up in the Morning Early

 

Cauld blaws the wind frae east to west,

The drift is driving sairly;

Sae loud and shill's I hear the blast,

I'm sure it's winter fairly.

 

Up in the morning's no for me,

Up in the morning early;

When a' the hills are cover'd wi' snaw,

I'm sure it is winter fairly.

 

The birds sit chittering in the thorn,

A' day they fare but sparely;

And lang's the night frae e'en to morn,

I'm sure it's winter fairly.

 

Up in the morning's no for me,

Up in the morning early;

When a' the hills are cover'd wi' snaw,

I'm sure it is winter fairly.
