Springtime in Portland: Songwriting

Image uploaded from iOS (12).jpg

At Earthtones we’re always looking for new ways to inspire our clients. This month, intern music therapist Steven Patton rewrote the song “Springtime in the Rockies” with three of his groups. Each group worked together to create a totally unique version of the song, proving that there’s no one way to celebrate Springtime in Portland!

Group 1

When it’s springtime in Portland
I’ll watch the birds and squirrels
There’ll be rain, sunshine and flowers
And I’ll put my feet in the water

Once again I’ll sing with the birds
I’ll smell and pick some roses

When it’s springtime in Portland
I’ll be happy most of the time

 

Group 2

When it’s springtime in Portland
I’ll play tennis and volleyball
Lay in the sunshine and eat Easter candy
And watch basketball and baseball

Once again leaves come back to the trees
Flowers, birds, and bees

When it’s springtime here in Portland
Walking at carnivals and parades

Group 3

When it’s springtime in Portland
I’ll get my garden ready
Pour water on the vegetables
And get the flowers going too

Once again we’ll have sunshine
And spring vacation, too

When it’s springtime here in Portland
You’ll be coming back to me
