I've Got Sixpence

Song:
I've got sixpence, jolly, jolly sixpence,
I've got sixpence to last me all my life.
I've got tupence to spend and tupence to lend, and
tupence to send home to my wife, which wife.

Chorus:
No cares have I to grieve me,
No pretty little girls to deceive me,
I'm happy as a lark, believe me,
As we go rolling rolling home.
Rolling home, (rolling home),
Rolling home, (rolling home),
By the light of the silvery moon,
Happy as the day,
that the COUNSELORS go away, as we go rolling, rolling home.

I've got fourpence,
jolly, jolly fourpence,
I've got fourpence to last me all my life.
I've got tupence to spend
and tupence to lend,
and no pence to send home to my wife, which wife.

I've got tupence, jolly, jolly tupence,
I've got tupence to last me all my life.
I've got tupence to spend and no pence to lend,
and no pence to send home to my wife, which wife.

I've got no pence,
jolly, jolly no pence,
I've got no pence to last me all my life.
I've got no pence to spend and no pence to lend,
and no pence to send home to my wife, which wife.

 

 

Song Title: My Grandfather's Clock

Song:
My grandfather's clock was too tall for the shelf, so it stood ninety years on the floor.
It was taller by half than the old man himself, but it weighed not a pennyweight more.
It was bought on the morn of the day that he was born, and was always his treasure
and pride.

CHORUS:
But it stopped, short, never to go again when the old man died.
Ninety years without slumbering, tick tock, tick tock.
Life seconds numbering, tick tock, tick tock.
But it stopped, short, never to go again when the old man died.

In watching its pendulum swing to and fro, many hours had he spent while a boy.
And in childhood and manhood, the clock seemed to know, and it shared in his grief and his joy.
And it struck twenty four as he opened up the door, with a blooming and beautiful bride.

[CHORUS]

My grandfather said that of those he could hire, not a servant so faithful he found.
For it wasted no time and had but one desire, at the close of each week to be wound.
And it kept in its place, not a frown upon its face, and its hands never hung by its side;

[CHORUS]

It rang an alarm in the dead of the night, an alarm that for years had been dumb.
And we knew that his spirit was pluming its flight, and his hour of departure had come.
Still the clock kept the time, with a soft and muffled chime, as we silently stood by his side;

[CHORUS]

 

 

Song Title: The Poor Old Slave

Song:
The poor old slave has gone to rest,
Way down in Tennessee - see - see.
Here lie his bones,
Disturb them not,
Way down in Tennessee - see - see.

The pe-oor old sle-ave has ge-one to re-est ...

The pigli-oor old sligli-ave has gigli-one to rigli-est.

 

 

Song Title: Zulu Chief

Song:
I-come-a-zimba-zimba-zay-a
I-come-a-zimba-zimba-zee
I-come-a-zimba-zimba-zay-a
I-come-a-zimba-zimba-zee

See him there, the Zulu warrior
See him there, the Zulu chief, chief, chief ...

Green Grow The Rushes O

I will sing you one O
Green grow the rushes O
What is your one O
One is one and all alone
And evermore shall be so

I will sing you two O
Green grow the rushes O
What is your two O
Two, two the lily white boys
Clothed all in green O

I will sing you three O
Green grow the rushes O
What is your three O
Three, three the rivals

Four for the Gospel makers

Five for the symbols at your door

Six for the six proud walkers

Seven for the seven stars in the sky

Eight for the April rainers

Nine for the nine bright shiners

Ten for the Ten Commandments

Eleven for the eleven that went to heaven

Twelve for the twelve apostles

 

 

 

Where have all the flowers gone?

Where have all the flowers gone
Long time passin'
Where have all the flowers gone
A long, long time ago
Where have all the flowers gone
Young girls picked them every one (gone to young girls everyone)
When will they ever learn
When will they ever learn

Where have all the young girls gone
Long time passing
Where have all the young girls gone
A long time ago
Where have all the young girls gone
Gone to young men everyone
When will they ever learn
When will they ever learn

Where have all the young men gone
Long time passin'
Where have all the young men gone
A long, long time ago
Where have all the young men gone
Gone to soldiers every one
When will they ever learn
When will they ever learn

Where have all the soldiers gone
Long time passin'
Where have all the soldiers gone
Long time ago
Where have all the soldiers gone
Gone to grave ya! rds every one
When will they ever learn
When will they ever learn

Where have all the grave yards gone
Long time passing
Where have all the grave yards gone
A long time ago
Where have all the grave yards gone
Gone to flowers every one
When will they ever learn
When will they ever learn

Oh Yeah.

 

 

You'll Never Walk Alone

When you walk through a storm,
Hold your head up high,
And don't be afraid of the dark,
At the end of the storm is a golden sky.
And the sweet silver song of a lark.
Walk on through the wind,
Walk on through the rain,
Tho' your dreams be tossed and blown,
Walk on, walk on, with hope in your heart,
And you'll never walk alone.
You'll never walk alone
Walk on, walk on, with hope in your heart,
And you'll never walk alone.
You'll never walk alone

Red River Valley

 

Red River Valley 


 

From this valley they say you are going
We will miss your bright eyes and sweet smile
For they say you are taking the sunshine
That has brightened our path for a while

Come and sit by my side if you love me
Do not hasten to bid me adieu
But remember the Red River Valley
And the cowboy who loved you so true

Won't you think of the valley you're leaving
Oh how lonely, how sad it will be?
Oh think of the fond heart you're breaking
And the grief you are causing to me

As you go to your home by the ocean
May you never forget those sweet hours
That we spent in the Red River Valley
And the love we exchanged mid the flowers
 

(Repeat *)
 

 

Don't fence me in



Oh give me land, lots of land under starry skies above
Don't fence me in
Let me ride through the wide open country that I love
Don't fence me in
Let me be by myself in the evening breeze
Listen to the murmur of the cottonwood trees
Send me off forever but I ask you please
Don't fence me in

Just turn me loose
Let me straddle my old saddle underneath the Western skies
On my cayuse
Let me wander over yonder 'til I see the mountains rise
I want to ride to the ridge where the West commences
Gaze about the moon until I lose my senses
Can't look at hobbles and I can't stand fences
Don't fence me in

Just turn me loose
Let me straddle my old saddle underneath the Western skies
On my cayuse
Let me wander over yonder 'til I see the mountains rise
I want to ride to the ridge where the West commences
Gaze about the moon until I lose my senses
Can't look at hobbles and I can't stand fences
Don't fence me in

 

Three Little Angles

 

Three little devils all dressed in red trying to get to heaven on the end of a thread,

but the thread end was broken so down they all fell instead of going to heaven they all went to

two little angles all dressed in red trying to get to heaven on the end of a thread,

but the thread end was broken so down they all fell instead of going to heaven they all went to

 

one little devil all dressed in red trying to get to heaven on the end of a thread,

but the thread end was broken so down they all fell instead of going to heaven they all went to

 

three little angels all dressed in white trying to get to heaven on the end of a kite,

but the kite end was broken so down they all fell instead of going to heaven they all went to

 

two little angles all dressed in white trying to get to heaven on the end of a kite,

but the kite end was broken so down they all fell instead of going to heaven they all went to

 

one little angel all dressed in white trying to get to heaven on the end of a kite,

but the kite end was broken so down they all fell instead of going to heaven they all went to BED.

 

 

 

Love of Jesus

 

I got the love of Jesus, love of Jesus down in my heart, down in my heart , down in my heart.

I got the love of Jesus love of Jesus down in my heart to stay.

John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt

 

John Jacob jingleheimer Schhmidt

Whenever I go out

the people always shout

there goes John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt

Na na na na na na na na

 

Repeat a little quieter each time until you are whispering.

 

 

101st Airborne

 

Each line is sung by a leader and then the group repeats each line.

 

Early on a frosty morn

Joined the 101st Airborne

People thought I lost my brains

Started jumping out of planes

Stand up, hook up, shuffle to the door

Im gonna jump on the count of four

If that chute donít open wide

I got another one by my side

If that chute should fail me too

Bury me please in my dress blues

If I die in the battle zone

Put me in a box and send me home

Put my medals on my chest

Tell my momma I did my best

Sound off

One two

Hit it again

Three four

Break it down

One two three four

One two       three four

 

 

This Land Is Your Land

 

This land is your land

This land is my land

From California to the New York Islands

From the Redwood Forest to the gulf stream waters

This land belongs to you and me

 

 

 

Down In The Valley

 

Down in the valley.  The valley so low.

Hang your head over and hear the wind blow.

Dear hear the wind blow.

Down in the valley.  The valley so low.

 

 

Swanee River

 

Way down upon the Swanee River

Far, far from home.

Thatís where my heart is yearning ever.

Thatís where the old folks stay.

 

 

Home On The Range

Home,  home on the range

where the deer and the antelope play.

Where seldom is heard

a discouraging word.

And the sky is not cloudy all day.

 

 

B I N G O

 

There was a farmer who had a dog and Bingo was his name-o

B  I  N  G  O     B  I  N  G  O   B  I  N  G  O and Bingo was his name- o

 

Repeat the refrain, but, when you spell Bingo clap for B.  Next time clap for BI and so on.

 

DIXIE


O, I wish I was in the land of cotton
Old times there are not forgotten
Look away! Look away!
Look away! Dixie Land.
In Dixie Land where I was born in
Early on one frosty mornin'
Look away! Look away!
Look away! Dixie Land.

Chorus:
O, I wish I was in Dixie!
Hooray! Hooray!
In Dixie Land I'll take my stand
To live and die in Dixie
Away, away,
Away down south in Dixie!
 

 

 

Rolled Away

 

I remember when my burdens rolled away;
I had carried them for years, night and day.
When I sought the blessŤd Lord,
And I took Him at His word,
Then at once all my burdens rolled away.

Refrain

Rolled away, rolled away,
I am happy since my burdens rolled away.
Rolled away, rolled away,
I am happy since my burdens rolled away.

I remember when my burdens rolled away;
That I feared would never leave, night or day.
Jesus showed to me the loss,
So I left them at the cross;
I was glad when my burdens rolled away.

Refrain

I remember when my burdens rolled away,
That had hindered me for years, night and day.
As I sought the throne of grace,
Just a glimpse of Jesusí face,
And I knew that my burdens could not stay.

Refrain

I am singing since my burdens rolled away;
Thereís a song within my heart night and day.
I am living for my King,
And with joy I shout and sing:
ďHallelujah, all my burdens rolled away!Ē

Refrain

 

IF I Had A Hammer

If I had a hammer
I'd hammer in the morning
I'd hammer in the evening
All over this land
I'd hammer out danger
I'd hammer out a warning
I'd hammer out love between my brothers and my sisters
All over this land

If I had a bell
I'd ring it in the morning
I'd ring it in the evening
All over this land
I'd ring out danger
I'd ring out a warning
I'd ring out love between my brothers and my sisters
All over this land

If I had a song
I'd sing it in the morning
I'd sing it in the evening
All over this land
I'd sing out danger
I'd sing out a warning
I'd sing out love between my brothers and my sisters
All over this land

Well I've got a hammer
And I've got a bell
And I've got a song to sing
All over this land
It's the hammer of justice
It's the bell of freedom
It's the song about love between my brothers and my sisters
All over this land
 

Michael Row Your Boat Ashore

Michael row the boat ashore,
Hallelujah
Michael row the boat ashore,
Hallelujah

My brothers and sisters are all aboard,
Hallelujah
My brothers and sisters are all aboard,
Hallelujah

Michael row the boat ashore,
Hallelujah
Michael row the boat ashore,
Hallelujah

The river is deep and the river is wide,
Hallelujah
Milk and honey on the other side,
Hallelujah

Michael row the boat ashore,
Hallelujah
Michael row the boat ashore,
Hallelujah

Jordan's river is chilly and cold,
Hallelujah
Chills the body but warms the soul,
Hallelujah

Michael row the boat ashore,
Hallelujah
Michael row the boat ashore,
Hallelujah

 

He's Got the Whole World in His Hands

He's got the whole world in His hands.
He's got the whole world in His hands.
He's got the whole world in His hands.
He's got the whole world in His hands.

He's got the wind and the rain in His hands.
He's got the wind and the rain in His hands.
He's got the wind and the rain in His hands.
He's got the whole world in His hands.

He's got the tiny little baby in His hands.
He's got the tiny little baby in His hands.
He's got the tiny little baby in His hands.
He's got the whole world in His hands.

He's got you and me brother in His hands.
He's got you and me brother in His hands.
He's got you and me brother in His hands.
He's got the whole world in His hands.

 

 

Go Tell It on The Mountain

Go tell it on the mountain
Over the hills and far away
Go tell it on the mountain
That Jesus Christ is born

The shepherds all were watching
Over their sheep at night
When a guiding star shone from heaven
And the followed that holy light

Got tell it on the mountain
Over the hills and everywhere
Go tell it on the mountain
That Jesus Christ is born
They found a lovely manger
Where the humble Christ was born
And God sent out salvation
On that blessed Christmas morn

Go tell it on the mountain
Over the hills and everywhere
Go tell it on the mountain
That Jesus Christ is born

He brought with Him forgiveness
He live to show us the way
He came to redeem all creation
And to wash all our sins away

Go tell it on the mountain
Over the hills and everywhere
Go tell it on the mountain
That Jesus Christ is born
 

 

We also sang all of the patriotic songs:

           

The Star Spangled Banner

My Country íTis of Thee

America the Beautiful

God Bless America
