Episode 43 is a song! It is a welcome to summer song because today, my friends, summer officially begins here in the United States.

This is also the beginning of Season 5 of the April Eight Songs & Stories Podcast. I’ve been making this podcast for 2 years now, and I’m so glad that I started it. I love my listeners so much and I have new stories coming your way in the month of July. The next one has Jemi in it! If you don’t know who Jemi is, look no further than the website! Jemi was the friend we met in Episode 1 and she is the first character I ever made for April Eight. You can listen to all three episodes of that story right here

But now, down to business. We’ve got a song to sing. This one is an old favorite of mine, it is called Wild Mountain Thyme by Francis McPeake. It is an old Scottish song, and I like that because I’ve got some Scottish in me. I love to sing this with my children and I can’t wait to sing it with you. Here is how the chorus goes.

Will you go Lassie go, and we’ll all go together, to pull wild mountain thyme all around the purple heather, will you go Lassie go…

Now, do you know what a Lassie is? THat’s just another way that Scottish people say “girl”. If you’d rather sing it to a boy, you can say, Laddie, if you want. Whatever works for you works for me.

Will you go, Lassie go?

New stories are coming in July!
