Just a few winters ago, I was out in the snow
Gettin' some fire wood to start the fire
'Cause we heated our house with wood
And I look at the sun peakin' up
Over the mountain, I had an idea for a song

Early in the mornin', I first see the sun
I say a little prayer for the world
I hope all the little children live a long, long time
Yes, every little boy and little girl

I hope they learn to laugh at the way
Some precious old words seem to change
'Cause that's what life is all about
To arrange and rearrange and rearrange

Oh-wee, oh-wye, to rearrange
And rearrange and rearrange
Oh-wee, oh-wye, to rearrange
And rearrange and rearrange

Early in the mornin', I'm a gatherin' the sap
I say a little prayer for the maple
Like old Mama Quad, on the northwest slope
I'll protect her as long as I'm able

She gives more sap every year
Than any single other tree
So bring on the pancakes, here's to Mama Quad
May she live for another century

Oh-wee, oh-wye, may she live
For another century
Oh-wee, oh-wye, may she live
For another century

Sometimes I wake in the middle of the night
And rub my achin' old eyes
Is that a voice from inside my head
Or does it come down from the sky?

There's a time to laugh but there's a time to weep
A time to make a big change
Wake up, you bum, the time has come
To arrange and rearrange and rearrange

Oh-wee, oh-wye, to rearrange
And rearrange and rearrange
Oh-wee, oh-wye, to rearrange
And rearrange and rearrange

Maybe the biggest change will come
When we don't have to change much at all
When maniacs holler, grow, grow, grow
We can choose to be small

The key word may be little
We only have to change a little bit
Eat a little food, drink a little drink
And only have to

Early in the mornin', I first see the sun
I say a little prayer for the world
I hope all the little children live a long, long time
Every little boy and little girl

I hope they learn to laugh at the way
Some wicked old words seem to change
'Cause that's what life's all about
To arrange and rearrange and rearrange

Sing it
Oh-wee, oh-wye, to rearrange
And rearrange and rearrange
Oh-wee, oh-wye, to rearrange
And rearrange and rearrange

Once more
Oh-wee, oh-wye, to rearrange
And rearrange and rearrange
Oh-wee, oh-wye, to rearrange
And rearrange and rearrange
