Here I Sit Here I sit and wait for you, Neath the spreading branches. Cool the grass with shade and dew Sunlight on me dances. Ai lee leeha leehi ly Now my voice is ringing Ai lee leeha leehi ly Songs to you I'm singing Fall is in the air today Hear the wild geese crying Don't delay come out and play Snow will soon be flying. I learned this as yet another Girl Scout song from Colorado, late sixties. We sa ng the chorus the same both times, though, and there were minor word differences . We sang it in two parts, the second part coming in "and wait" in the first line like an echo. The only title I've ever known for the song is "Here I Sit." (Not to be confused with "Buttermilk Hill" in the DT.) CD
