Lyrics

KATYDID WALTZ by SARAH GOSLEE REED

In my bed last night just as it got dark,
A most curious sound met my ears,
What was outside came inside and began to play
A tune I hadn't heard in years.
The firefly stood on the edge of the sill
Wearing coattails, baton in the air.
He lit up the downbeat so all could see
The insect orchestra was there.


    Katy oh Katydid, play me the song you did
    When summer turns into fall;
    Katy oh Katydid, Katy oh Katydid
    Play me the Katydid Waltz.

There were crickets on woodwinds and locusts on brass,
Mosquitoes and gnats on the strings.
The percussion section was katydids - they
Played a waltz one-two-three with their wings.
They oompahed and scritch-scritched for hours until
The wee hours of the morning were near.
I may have been dreaming , but tonight all my friends
Will be gathered at my window to hear.


    Katy oh Katydid, play me the song you did
    When summer turns into fall;
    Katy oh Katydid, Katy oh Katydid
    Play me the Katydid Waltz.

    
    Katy oh Katydid, play me the song you did
    When summer turns into fall;
    Katy oh Katydid, Katy oh Katydid
    Play me the Katydid Waltz.
