The Fishing Song

Have you ever been a fishin'
On a hot and dirty day,
With all the little fishes
Swimmin' up and down the bay.
With your hands in your pockets
and your pockets in your pants
and all the fishies

And he knocked, and he knocked till his fists got sore.

Without the consent of Brother Rat."

Now Brother Rat has gone to town
To buy Miss Mousie a wedding gown.

The wedding was held in a big oak tree
With corn and cabbage and black eyed peas.

And he wrapped his tail around the wedding cake.

The had ten kids that looked like rats
Some tall some short some skinny some fat.

The all got married and went to France
and that was the end of that romance.

Bear Song

The other day, I saw a bear,
A great big bear, A way out there.

He looked at me, I looked at him,
He sized up me, I sized up him.

He said to me, Why don't you run,
I see you ain't, Got any gun

And so I ran, Away from there,
But right behind, Me was that bear.

Ahead of me, I saw a tree,
A great big tree, Oh, glory be.

The nearest branch, was 10 feet up,
I'd have to jump, and trust my luck.

And so I jumped, Into the air.
But I missed that branch, On the way up there.

Now don't you fret, And don't you frown,
Cause I caught that branch, On the way back down.

The moral of, This story be,
Don't you meet a bear, Without a tree.

This is the end, There ain't no more,
Unless I meet, That bear once more.

The Princess Pat, Lived in a tree,
She sailed across, The seven seas,
She sailed across, The channel too,
And she took with her, A ricky-dan-do.

It's red and gold, And purple too,
That's why it's called, A ricky-dan-do.

The sailed across, the ocean blue.
But his ship sank, And so will you,
If you don't take, A ricky-dan-do.

Hi Ho

Hi Ho, nobody's home,
We've eat, nor drink, nor money have we none,
Yet, will I be merry.

Holla Hi

Who comes up the meadow way?
Holla Hi, Holla Ho
Surely 'tis my sweetheart gay,
Holla Hilla Ho,
She goes by the open door,
Holla Hi, Holla Ho
Must not love me anymore,
Holla Hilla Ho,

(likewise)
People say with twinkling eyes,
Love is blind but age makes wise;
Little heed I when they tease,
I may love just whom I please.

On my sweetheart's wedding day,
All my sweetheart's friends are gay,
But all my hope and joy are gone.
I must bear my grief alone.

When I die my love dies too;
They will say that I was true.
On yon hill my grave shall be.
Forget-me-nots shall comfort me.

(in counterpoint during second half of each verse)
Holla Hi, Holla Ho
Holla Hi, Holla Ho
Holla Hi, Holla Ho
La Hi, La Ho

And so I thank the Lord,
For giving me, the things I need,
The sun and the rain and the appleseed.
The Lord's been good to me.

Morning is here

Morning is here, the board is spread,
Thanks be to God, who gives us bread.

Rise and shine

Rise and shine
And give God your glory glory,
Rise and shine
And give God your glory glory,
Rise and shine
And (clap) give God your glory glory,
Children of the Lord

Thanks be to God

Thanks be to God
Our father in heaven,
Thanks be to God
Who gave us this bread
Thanks be to God
The spirit eternal
Thanks be to God forever.
