Singing About Seasons

Pam had the students work through an exercise that involved finding people in the large room and writing their names to icons for the four seasons on some cards she had passed out. She walked back to her table and started some music.

The room filled with the low roar of people talking. They all had pencils, and they were jotting down names on their cards.

“Do you have somebody for fall, yet?”

“Would you be my spring?”

And in the background Pam’s music played.

Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I’ll be there
And I’ll be there, yes I will.

Afterwards, as everyone was sitting down and Sweet Baby James was finishing the song, Pam said, “Let’s sing it together.”

She started singing. Some others started singing. I started singing. And we laughed when we got tripped up by the repeated

Ain’t it good to know?
Ain’t it good to know?
Ain’t it good to know…

that comes just before 

…you’ve got a friend.

As the song ended, someone at the next table said, “I have never heard of that song.”

Now, can someone tell me how on earth that is possible? Wait. On second thought, don’t tell me. I don’t want to talk about it.
