Music IconDown By Sabino Creek
to the tune of "The Farmer in the Dell"

lyrics by Judi Moreillon
with inspiration from Karen Fields

Down by Sabino Creek, down by Sabino Creek,
there is a wealth of life down by Sabino Creek.

The beauty of the sound, the beauty of the sound -
the sound of water running with the desert all around.

The water shapes the rocks.The water shapes the rocks.
It shapes them round, then goes underground; the waters rise and drop.

Down by Sabino Creek, down by Sabino Creek,
there is a wealth of life down by Sabino Creek.

The air feels wet and cool. The air feels wet and cool.
The raccoon hunts along the banks; the fish swim in the pools.

The pond is home to ducks. The pond is home to ducks.
The insects lay their eggs in spring; their larvae eat the muck.

Down by Sabino Creek, down by Sabino Creek
there is a wealth of life down by Sabino Creek.

The broadleaf trees grow tall. The broadleaf trees grow tall.
Their leaves turn pretty colors; they lose them in the fall.

The hawks nest in the trees. The hawks nest in the trees.
The willow and the primrose flowers attract the hungry bees.

Down by Sabino Creek, down by Sabino Creek,
there is a wealth of life down by Sabino Creek.
