Listen and Learn Music: Today it is October

Today it is October

Wow! Fall is in full swing, and today we begin the 10th month of the year. 2008 has flown by so quickly...is it just me, or does time speed up with each passing year?

October is almost synonymous with pumpkins, scarecrows, harvest, cool weather, and of course, Halloween. Though it is not my favorite "holiday" (much to the dismay of my dad, who is quite the Halloween enthusiast), I always put my lukewarm feelings aside and join in the fun - especially when it comes to my students! They love singing about bats, witches, ghosts, and goblins, so this month I have several new songs on tap.



Today it is October,
The tenth month of the year.
Summertime is over,
and autumn weather's near.

Today it is October,
The leaves are turning brown.
The air is getting chilly,
And soon the leaves fall down.

Today it is October,
The tenth month of the year.
Summertime is over,
and autumn weather's near.

Today it is October,
It's time to celebrate
Fall festivals and Columbus Day
Oh, I can hardly wait!

Today it is October,
The tenth month of the year.
Summertime is over,
and autumn weather's near.

Today it is October,
It's time for Halloween.
Candy, spooks, and costumes,
And all those scary things.

Today it is October,
The tenth month of the year.
Summertime is over,
and autumn weather's near.

Rachel - I am a music therapist in Richmond, VA and work with autism groups. I've been using this song all month and it's been great for the students. They've learned to sign "October" along with it and many of them are even saying "October." Thanks so much for sharing your work.

Will you have a November song?? (smile)
