about

A track written about the book "Little House in the Big Wood", which had a television program called "Little House on the Prairie" developed about it. I used this song to teach kids how to do chapter summaries of the book.

lyrics

There's a place far away amongst the darkest trees
wolves and bears foxes mink and deer
a little house inside a family here
With Ma and Pa keeping the children near and the animals in the clear

'Cause it's the little house in the big, big wood
where they work all day, laugh and play in the grass and the trees and the snow there's no where to go for miles and miles except for my home sweet home because we live in the little house in the big big wood

In the day Pa goes hunting with his big black gun
for fish and bears even venison
skins and salts the meat for later on even smokes it for the winter long
when the leaves have turned and gone

'Cause it's the little house in the big, big wood
where they work all day, laugh and play in the grass and the trees and the snow there's no where to go for miles and miles except for my home sweet home because we live in the little house in the big big wood

On Sundays the day is long because there's resting church and song
don't forget butter making too when we churn and churn and churn it through colour it with carrot juice it's true

'Cause it's the little house in the big, big wood
where they work all day, laugh and play in the grass and the trees and the snow there's no where to go for miles and miles except for my home sweet home because we live in the little house in the big big wood (2x)
