You hear that sound
The rain is coming down (it says)
There's a ripeness setting in
The children spin around
'til they crash into the ground
Singing welcome home forever once again

And when you hear the spirits call
There ain't no use to fight
And if you want to eat tomorrow
You'd better sow your seed tonight
You'd better sow your seed tonight

You feel that fire lift your body higher
(An) old old dance is growing here
You'd better kiss me soon
While the blossoms are in bloom
Or you might just have to wait another year

And when you hear the spirits howl
There ain't no use to fight
And if you want to eat tomorrow
You'd better sow your seed tonight
You'd better sow your seed tonight

You feel that beat
Come on move your feet
Old man winter's dead and gone
There'll be wiggling of the toes
There'll be taking off of clothes
There'll be silly naked dancing on the lawn

And when you hear the spirits howl
There ain't no use to cry
And if you want to eat tomorrow
You'd better sow your seed tonight
You'd better sow your seed tonight

And when you hear the spirits call
There ain't no use to fight
And if you want to eat tomorrow
You'd better sow your seed tonight

And when you hear the spirits call
There ain't no wrong or right
So if you want to eat tomorrow
You'd better sow your seed tonight

And when you hear the spirits call
There ain't no use to cry
And if you want to eat tomorrow
You'd better sow your seed tonight
You'd better sow your seed tonight
