Autumn days when the grass is jewelled (again)

In which we remember an old school hymn


I’ve noticed, recently, a lot of people finding this site because they’re searching for the lyrics to the song Autumn Days, the primary school assembly staple by Estelle White. So, I thought I may as well post at least part of them:

Autumn days when the grass is jewelled
And the silk inside a chestnut shell
Jet planes meeting in the air to be refuelled
All these things I love so well

(Chorus)
So I mustn’t forget
No I mustn’t forget
To say a great big thank you
I mustn’t forget

You can find the rest of the lyrics here, although there’s a small mistake in the second verse.*

I’m sure it became a classic assembly hymn-singing staple because it’s only vaguely religious. It is to hymns what Intelligent Design dogma is to creationism – it implies we’re talking about some sort of god here, but the details aren’t just vague, they’re not there at all. In other words, it fits in perfectly in your average non-sectarian British school, forced by law to hold regular “religious” assemblies, but forced by common sense to make them as non-religious as they can get away with.

* it should be “and the song the milkman sings,” I’m sure.

    Blimey, I’d forgotten all about this piece of nonsense :-)
    *sits trying to remember the tune*

  2. Forest Pines says:

    Somewhere I must still have a copy of the music edition of the hymnbook we used – a legacy of my primary school recorder-playing days.

    Not only have I no idea what “the silk inside a chestnut shell” actually is, I’ve always been convinced, because of this song, that it’s something you only get in autumn.

  3. Somewhat says:

    The ORANGE Come and Praise book, Forest?! Cool. We only ever had the purple words-only edition, with the eyes gouged out of the spooky kids on the front.

  4. Forest Pines says:

    Thank you – I couldn’t remember the name! Yes, the big spiral-bound orange one. Because I was in the recorder group, my mum bought me my own copy so I could practise at home.

  5. Somewhat says:

    Oh, and why would jet planes only refuel in autumn? I’ve just remembered that when I was little, I had this theory about air being colder in autumn so the vapour trails showing up better, but that of course isn’t what the song says.

    Sorry, must stop talking crap in your comments and go and do some work!

  6. Somewhat says:

    Well I was in the recorder group too, but we never got anything as good as that!! *not fair*

  7. Forest Pines says:

    The first line of the song has tarred everything else with the autumnal brush, I think.

    I was the only kid in the group who had their own copy of the music book – my mother carefully wrote my name inside so it didn’t get lost.

    (you’re not the only one who should get on with work)

  8. Sam says:

    It’s been a long time since i saw this song around. I sung this in primary school and have bene left there about five years.

  9. Miriam says:

    Hi! I was just surfing the net looking for a song I remembered from my Primary School Days, I can’t actually remember the title of the song (or even all of the words to the song!), what I do remember were the following lyrics:

    “…See the fields all bare and brown, feel the nights turn cold, lamps are early lit in town hunters moon shines gold………….autumn-(/winter?!?)-time is here….”

    Well, I never did find the song on the net (I would be very gratefull if anyone who knows the song that i’m talking about could help though :) )

    The main reason why I am writing is because I too remember the song “Autumn Days” and the tune too! I couldn’t remember all of the verses though! I know this is probably a little too late now, but I have made an attempt at writing some guitar chords to the tune of ‘Autumn Days’ (how I can remember it anyway ;) )…

    Autumn Days by Estelle White.
    [C]Autumn [G]days, when the [F]grass is jewelled
    And the [C]silk is [G]in a [F]chestnut [C]shell
    Jet planes [G]meeting in the [f]air to be refuelled
    All these [Am]things I love so [g]well
    So I mustn’t for[C]get[Em]
    No, I mustn’t for[F]get[D7]
    To [c]say a [g]great big [F]thank you
    No, I mustn’t for[C]get.

    Clouds that look like familiar faces
    And winter’s moon with frosted rings
    Smell of bacon as I fasten up my laces
    And the milkman sings.
    So I mustn’t for[C]get[Em]
    No, I mustn’t for[F]get[D7]
    To [c]say a [g]great big [F]thank you
    No, I mustn’t for[C]get.

    Whipped-up spray that is rainbow-scattered
    And a swallow curving in the sky
    Shoes go comfy though they’re worn out and they’re battered
    And the taste of apple pie.
    So I mustn’t for[C]get[Em]
    No, I mustn’t for[F]get[D7]
    To [c]say a [g]great big [F]thank you
    No, I mustn’t for[C]get.

    Scent of gardens when the rain’s been falling
    And a minnow darting down a stream
    Picked-up engine that’s been stuttering and stalling
    And a win for my home team.
    So I mustn’t for[C]get[Em]
    No, I mustn’t for[F]get[D7]
    To [c]say a [g]great big [F]thank you
    No, I mustn’t for[C]get.

  10. ANYWHERE says:

    we used to sing this all the time back at primary school, its one of the ones ive never forgotten and the tune is so clear in my head da da da da da dada da da da da. its a good song that everyone used to love singing at the church services especially when you got to the chorus and everyone would go and i mustn’t FORGET at the top of their voices. most of the song you realise as you grow older is stuff and nonsense but it remains a fond memory for me and the other yr 6′s in that year, so i mustnt forgetttttttttttt to say a great big thankyou i mustnt forgettttttttt

  11. Ben says:

    Since i left primary school 16 years ago, my friends and i have been trying to figure out the meaning/reference behind “jet plnes meeting in the air to be refuelled”……please please can some one tell me why this is supposed to remind someone of autumn…..i havent slept since 1990!!!

    thanks
    Ben et al

  12. Forest Pines says:

    I assume that it’s only the first line that’s about autumn, and the other things are just other random great stuff.

  13. Amanda says:

    Well I mustn’t forget to say a great big thank-you(excuse the punn). For helping me with finding teh rest of teh lyrics to such a beautiful song. I was desperately searching on the web to find lyrics as im up for singing at harvest service at my chapel tomorrow. Thanks

  14. lu says:

    i love ths song, i had forgotten all the verses, if anyone knows where i can possibley download this song for free then please say, and also who is it written by because when i type teh name already written for who it is buy some strange things come up!

  15. lu says:

    i no this has absolutly nothing to do with this song but does anyone know how to change the host on outlook express

  16. Luke says:

    Hi there!

    You got it!!! I was exactly searching for this hymn from school assembly!

    Thanks for posting the lyrics for all of us!

  17. Tom says:

    Fantastic, it’s autumn again and i had to search for the lyrics to this. It always reminds me of harvest festival and the lead up to christmas (the silk inside a chestnut shell is the soft white skin (like orange pith) that you get inside conkers) And anyway, loads of those things are kind of autumnal. Now you just need to post all of the other great assembly songs that fill us with nostalgia. Anyway, this essay on Mussolini’s rise to power won’t write itself. Ah, A-levels.

  18. Sarah says:

    Many of these postings are clearly from nostalgic adults. Let me assue you that this song is still alive and well in our primary schools.

  19. Laura says:

    This song isn’t set in Autumn it merely states autumn days as being a favourite time the singer “musn’t forget” The feel of the song is definately Autumnal, but not exclusive of other seasons.
    And it rocks.

  20. claire bleasdale says:

    I was walkiing home this fine sunday autumnal evening in October and needed the lyrics to Autumn days, as it was one of my favourite hymns at Primary school. Thank you all for enlightening me, I will now try to sing it all for the rest of the week.

  21. Marc says:

    I was ‘walkiing’home with claire tonight when she started singing this song that i’d never heard before but had and instant bond with. Autunm’s not my favourite of season’s but this song kinda makes it seem alright. Nice modern slant with the bit about airplanes been refueled – but fails to mention the quite recent addition to autunm being the constant crack and bang of fireworks going off a full calendar month before bonfire night!! It’s like the Helmand Province round here.

  22. Sophie says:

    I sang that song at my class asembelly at school and the teacher (Miss.Jones) turned it into a diffrent song but with the same tune!

  23. Sophie says:

    I like that tune but ithink it is a bit babyish!

  24. Edd says:

    Aah I always remember this song as “autumn days something something something and the something something something…. and the song the milkman sings!” Now I can remember all of it :)

  25. Bradley says:

    i have always lliked this song scince i was in primary school it has been a great on to sing and i have to say it is the best soing that i ever heard.

    Bradley Prescott

  26. Bradley says:

    also we sung it in our assembly at school and in church. we sung it in church.

  27. rachel says:

    hello people,

    i was looking for the lyrics for this because me and mary couldnt remember them – it is my fave hymn thank you
    i used to sing this in primary school only 2 years ago so the song is still alive and being sung

  28. vixalina says:

    WOW!!! ive been looking for this song since forever! i stillcant remember the one that goes “caulifaur’s fluffy, and cabbages green, doo dee doo dee du dum de blah blah blah blah, betrooot purple and something something something, all growing steadily day and night! the apples are ripe, the plums are red, the broad beens are slleping in their blankity bed, YEH!”

  29. Jake says:

    the song to cauliflowers fluffy is a follows…

    cauliflowers fluffy and cabbages green
    strawberries sweeter than any ive seen
    beetroot purple and onions white
    all grow steadily day and night

    CHORUS
    the apples are ripe
    the plums are red
    the broad beans are sleeping in a blanketty bed

    blackberries juicy and rhubarb sour
    marrows fattening hour by hour
    gooseberries hairy and lettuces fat
    radishes round and runnerbeans flat

    CHORUS

    orangy carrots and turnips cream
    reddening tomatoes that used to be green
    brown potatoes in little heaps
    down in the darkness where the celery sleeps

    CHORUS

    yeah!

    is the tune vixalina was thinking of

    no,im not mad, im in yr 6, and we sing both songs

  30. Jake says:

    also, i dunno where to download both songs BEING SUNG, does anyone else?

  31. john says:

    I just remembered singing “jet planes refuelling in the air” but now I found out the correct words!

    We had A5 blue Come & Praise books and you could peel the plastic off the front cover (was it Come & Praise 2?)

  32. Harry says:

    I am searching…….for the Claire B who stole my heart away all those years ago…..

    Still searching but never finding.

    Maybe one day we will find each other again and it will be different this time around.

    I don’t know the words but sing your song for me…..yes sing it again for me.

  33. Bryn says:

    What a song.

    Ill aways remember singing about the planes, and the ‘taste of apple pie.’

    If the song isn’t all about autumn then why is it called ‘autumn days’. Did anyone else used to have a CD of kids singing school hymns to accompany the poor standard of singing at their own school? I wish i had that CD now!

    There was another awesome harvest song about a farmer harvesting his crops but I really cant remember it now. Something about red and rosy apples was in it though.

    What a song.

  34. Charlemagne Burt says:

    Hi lovely people,
    i couldn’t believe it when I came across this site! I was looking for all the old hymns we used to sing in assembly at school. You just don’t hear them anywhere any more. :( My brother is all grown up now and in Afghanistan in the army, I wanted to send him his favourite hymn to make him smile and think of God and his school days. Its not Autumn related or about food but I just wondered if anyone may know the words as I can’t find the lyrics anywhere on the net.
    Its: Silver trumpet

    and goes something like:

    “…the gates are made of gold and the streets are made of pearl, oh hand me down my silver trumpet Lord. ”

    thanks :)

  35. jodie says:

    right ok the song isnt even that goood
    dont egt carried away your all like
    OMG ITS SO AMAZING ITS LIKE THE BEST SONG EVER
    yerr its catching but com’on how old are all of you atleast 50
    jeeeese man get a life

  36. sandy says:

    Hi I have to sing this song tommorrow i also py it on the recorder and the piano/keyboard

    PS: i am in primary school

  37. janis douglas says:

    we used to sing autumn days too but did not use verse 3,
    the jet planes can only be seen refueling in a british autumn cos winters tend to be too cloudy and the summers are warmer making the vapour more difficult to see

  38. Beth H says:

    Hi Miriam (post 9) I think the lyrics you mentioned about “Humter’s moon shines gold” are from “Look for signs that Summer’s done” And I have been searching for the full tune and lyrics to this but have drawn a blank – does anyone else know this song?. The first lines are “Look for signs that Summer’s done, Winter’s drawing near, [tum-ti-tum-ti tum tum tum????], Turning of the year”. It’s a lovely Autumn song and I’d love to teach it to my children.

    Here’s a timely satirical take on another classic:

    We drive around and scatter the carbon in the air.
    Our cars are fuelled and watered – with what we don’t much care.
    Let’s build another by-pass, for we hate traffic jams;
    We’ll close our ears and minds to the coughing of the lambs!

    We love four wheel drive cars; they make a lovely noise!
    For we don’t care, no we don’t care; we just like shiny toys.

    Our holiday’s a package; but there’s no need to fret:
    So cheap is carbon trading, it all can be offset.
    The atmospheric carbon, six tonnes or slightly more,
    Will do no harm to us for we’ll dump it on the poor!

    All good things around us were sent for us to waste.
    But we don’t care, no we don’t care; by this we’re all disgraced.

    We read about emissions, for that’s what airlines do.
    And foreign parts, like China, but it’s not me and you.
    The TV set’s on standby; the Aga’s nice and hot.
    The air-con’s running full blast, for going green’s all rot!

    We’ve got loads of money; we save with Northern Rock!
    We do not hear, we do not hear, the ticking of the clock.

    Let’s all go down to Tesco, to see what we can buy.
    There isn’t any meat or fish, so what else can we try?
    They’re queuing up for milk there; is that a line for flour?
    The shelves are nearly bare; let us wait … another hour.

    All good things around us could only last so long. We didn’t care; we didn’t care; so soon our lifestyle’s gone.

    us children still sing this by the way i am a year 6 at hardwick middle school

  40. Chloe says:

    Wow in only nine and i sing that at school i like the instumental bit

  41. Beth says:

    Since we’re talking about this, does anyone remember the words “I have seen the golden sunshine”? I remember the first verse, it went like this:

    “I have seen the golden sunshine,
    I have watched the flowers grow,
    I have listened to the songbirds (possibly)
    And there’s one thing now I know
    They were all put there for us to share
    By someone so divine
    And if you’re a friend of Jesus (clap clap clap clap) you’re a friend of mine.
    I’ve seen the light, I’ve seen the light,
    That’s why my heart sings.
    I’ve known the joy, I’ve known the joy
    That loving Jesus brings.”

    I used to love this thing and I can’t find the rest of the lyrics anywhere!

  42. Forest Pines says:

    I can still hum that one – but I can’t remember the rest of the words.

  43. Emily Warwick says:

    My daughter is currently learning this song at school. She’s 4 and I’ve never seen her so excited about singing. And she’s made me get my recorder out! The song’s good but the memories of simpler times are even nicer.

  44. henry says:

  54. Naomi says:

    Hi
    Im 14 nd was doing what everyone else seems to have been doing. What i thought was tho’ does anyone else remember the song that goes:
    Michelmas Daisies purple in the border,
    big fat leeks all standing up in order
    Whiskered barley talking to the breeze
    Low hung bows of laden apple trees.

    Its harvest time
    harvest time again
    mellow fruitful harvest time

    Unfortunately i cant remember the rest of the verse or the second verse.
    If any one can remember the song the talks about fruit (pears I think) and diamonds etc. i would be grateful. Sorry not much help that!
    Naomi

  55. Robyn Evans says:

  59. Kiz says:

    Harborne Junior School had a competition back in the 80′s to right another verse to this song, it went:
    Coats and scarfs have started coming out again
    Waiting for the frost and snow
    Crunchy leaves a lovely golden carpet make
    Whichever way you go

  60. ??? says:

    farts are smelly, and arnt very green
    sick is dirty and isnt very clean

    dont do it in bed
    from the stink youll be dead.

    Lyrics to “I Have Seen The Golden Sunshine”.
    Enjoy!

    I HAVE SEEN THE GOLDEN SUNSHINE

    1.
    I have seen the golden sunshine
    I have watched the flowers grow
    I’ve listened to the song birds
    And there’s one thing that I know

    There were all put there for us to share
    By Someone so divine
    If you’re a friend of Jesus (clap clap clap clap)
    You’re a friend of mine

    Chorus:
    I’ve seen the light
    I’ve seen the light
    And that’s why my heart sings
    I’ve known the joy
    I’ve known the joy
    That loving Jesus brings

    2.
    I have seen the morning sunshine
    I have heard the oceans roar
    I’ve seen the flowers of springtime
    And there’s one thing I am sure

    They were all put there for us to share
    By Someone so divine
    If you’re a friend of Jesus (clap clap clap clap)
    You’re a friend of mine

    Chorus:
    I’ve seen the light
    I’ve seen the light
    And that’s why my heart sings
    I’ve known the joy
    I’ve kinown the joy
    That loving Jesus brings

  64. C says:

    I love this song. :) it is by far my favourite primary school song. Like you, I am also in my (late) 20s and this song definitely is one of the reasons I love Autumn. :)

    Thanks for putting and keeping this up!

  65. Simon says:

    LOOK FOR SIGNS OF AUTUMN

    Look for signs that summer’s done, winter’s drawing near
    Watch the changing colours come, turning of the year
    See the flowers’ final blaze in the morning’s misty haze
    Sing a thankful song of praise – Autumn time is here.

    See the fields are bare and brown, feel the nights turn cold
    Lamps are early lit in town, Hunter’s moon shines gold
    Thank you, God, for rest and food, for the harvest safely stored
    Sing a song to praise the Lord as the year grows old.

    I’m looking for a Autumn song, we sang back when I was in the 3rd-4th grade.. 1969-1970 I remember the beginning lyric’s was.. There’s a snap thats in the air that feels like Autumn… all the trees will soon be bare because it Autumn.. ????? ???????? ?????< ????? ????? ???, ??????, because it Autumn time again.. ( then it goes to the next verse..)

  68. Maximus says:

    I’ve been searching for this song because I’ve been wondering what useless ponce wrote it. How many times was I forced to sing that stupid piece of rubbish, thanking some deity or other for a long list of things I either didn’t like or hadn’t noticed, while sitting on a hard wooden floor, as Mrs. Price waved her hands like she thought she was Herbert von Karajan?!?! And people wonder why children turn to drugs, booze, junk food and violence these days. After years of meaningless rubbish like this endured at the hands of depraved individuals calling themselves teachers, hard drugs are the only reasonable response. The hypocrisy enshrined in the very idea of forcing children to sing this awful, awful song really sums up what wrong with education.

  69. Heather says:

    Beth (October 10th)

    We used to sing for the third line: “I have seen the flowers of springtime, and there’s one thing I should know…” But there could be two versions or different verses. :) I was never sure about the first lines though, thanks. I can’t find lyrics anywhere either. :P

    “I have seen the golden sunshine,
    I have watched the flowers grow,
    I have listened to the songbirds (possibly)
    And there’s one thing now I know
    They were all put there for us to share
    By someone so divine
    And if you’re a friend of Jesus (clap clap clap clap) you’re a friend of mine.
    I’ve seen the light, I’ve seen the light,
    That’s why my heart sings.
    I’ve known the joy, I’ve known the joy
    That loving Jesus brings.?

  70. Heather says:

    Maximus (January 2)

    Seriously? :) Of all religious hymns to sing at school and to criticise I wouldn’t have thought this would be the one. People often feel that they want to be thankful for these things whether they’re strictly theists or not. Even irreligious people are capiable of happily noticing things and expressing their joy in thanks and praise.

    i sing lis song at school its anoyin low on lis song lere missed sum verses out

  72. Gem says:

    I smelled that crisp leafy autumnal smell in the air yesterday morning as I took my son to school, got a huge rush of nostalgia and launched into this song. Apart from jet planes and the taste of apple pie I was a bit fuzzy on the lyrics though, so I just belted out the chorus, which he loved.

    “…I never forGEEEEET…. to say a great big THANK YOU I never forGEEEEET…”

    Thank you so much for filling in the gaps in my memory. I’ve now also got “Look for Signs of Autumn” in my head.

    FYI I’m 28, and my son’s school is rubbish. They don’t even have a harvest festival. What’s he going to use for nostalgia?

    Hi was looking through your site and noticed you were missing the second verse so here –

    I have seen the golden shine
    I have watched the flowers grow,
    I have listened to the song birds
    And there’s one thing now I know.

    They were all put there for us to share
    By someone so divine,
    And if you’re a friend of Jesus
    (clap clap clap clap)
    You’re a friend of mine.

    I’ve seen the light, I’ve seen the light,
    And that’s why my heart sings.
    I’ve known the joy, I’ve known the joy
    That loving Jesus brings.

    I have seen the morning sunshine
    I have heard the oceans roar,
    I have seen the flowers of springtime
    And there’s one thing now I’m sure

    They were all put there for us to share
    By someone so divine,
    And if you’re a friend of Jesus
    (clap clap clap clap)
    You’re a friend of mine.

    I’ve seen the light, I’ve seen the light,
    And that’s why my heart sings.
    I’ve known the joy, I’ve known the joy
    That loving Jesus brings.

    Did anyone else sing a harvest song where the lyrics were something like;
    ‘there is a farmer who stands in his fields
    and he sees all the work to be done
    he has been watching for many a days……
    There’s a song to sing as the harvest comes in
    to the one who brings sorrow and joy
    let us all join in with a frank offering
    as the harvest os gathered again’
    i can’t remember the rest of the lyrics, does anyone know them??

    Ah you guys… I have so enjoyed reading many of your comments and truly love the Autumn Days songs, it really was a school favourite and I sometimes catch myself humming it. Now a teacher in China, I would love to find a downloadable version of the song with the singing so I can attempt to teach my students! (Can’t get Youtube here!) Anyway… if anyone does know anywhere I can do this I would really appreciate the help.
    Thanks.x
