Since the dawn of time
When dinosaurs roamed
The colors of fall have been here.
And then with the cave men
They still show so bright
With yellow and orange and red
The colors of fall have been here.
Then with the pilgrims who came on boats
And on the first thanksgiving came
The colors of fall have been here.
Then through war and grief
And depression and strife
The colors of fall have been here.
And now in the time of the economic fall
And the war with Iraq rages on
With all of the things gone wrong
And all that have gone right
We know in our hearts
From the time that it starts
That the colors of fall will still be there.
