Call and answer
There was a great big moose

Who liked to drink a lot of juice

There was a great big moose

Who liked to drink a lot of juice


Singin’ woah-ay-oh-oh



The moose’s name was Fred

He liked to drink his juice in bed…

He drank his juice with care,

Aww he spilt it everywhere…

Now he’s a sticky moose,

But he’ll always love his juice…


Call and answer
Early in the morning

When I’m fast asleep

I hear a little birdie

That goes “cheep cheep”

And the little birdie

Has a funny name



Gonna buy some birdseed

For my window sill

Just to keep him quiet

Just to keep him still

It’s for the little birdie

Who has a funny name



Just a boy and a girl

In a little canoe

With the moon shining all around,

And they paddled and they paddled

‘til they couldn’t even hear a sound.

And they talked and they talked

as the moon grew dim,

And he said “You better kiss me

or get out and swim!”

So wotcha gonna do in a little canoe

With the moon shining all a--

Boats floatin’ all a--

Girls swimmin’ all around?

Get out and swim!
Oh what the heck, go ahead and neck!

I’ve got sixpence

Jolly jolly sixpence

I’ve got sixpence

To last me all my life.
I’ve got sixpence to spend

And sixpence to lend

And sixpence to send out to my wife.
What wife?

No cares have I to grieve me

No sassy little boys to deceive me

I’m as 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 when ………… goes away!
As we go rolling rolling home.

I’ve got four pence, jolly jolly four pence…

I’ve got two pence, jolly jolly two pence…
I’ve got no pence, jolly jolly no pence…
I’ve got welfare, jolly jolly welfare…

Let’s all go down to Washington D. C.

buhdum buhdum

That’s where they play the sweetest ragtime melody

buhdum buhdum

It all begins with lesson number one

And they waddled, and they waddled

‘til the day was done.

It’s the Washington Waddle

Get the tune in your noddle

Let your feet have fun!

Come on and waddle with me

My honey waddle with me
On a ragtime ship, on a ragtime sea

Waddle… waddle… waddle… waddle…

Come on and waddle with me

buhdum buhdum… pah

I woke up Sunday morning and looked up on the wall

The bedbugs and the beetles were playing a game of ball

The score was six to nothing, the beetles were ahead

The bedbugs hit a homerun and knocked me out of bed.


Singing, ee-nee-me-nee-me-nee, my-nee-moe

Catch a whippersnapper, by the toe

If he hollers, hollers, let him go

Ee-nee-me-nee-me-nee, my-nee-moe.
My mother is in Russia

My father is a spy

And I am the big blabbermouth

Who told the F.B.I.

My mother is in Russia

My father is in jail

And I am in a courthouse

Without any bail.


It’s cheese, cheese, cheese that makes the world go ‘round

Cheese, cheese, cheese that makes the world go ‘round

Cheese, cheese, cheese that makes the world go ‘round

Cheese that makes the world go ‘round.


Oh row me over,

Row me over the ocean and the deep blue sea,

Oh row me over,

Row me over the ocean and the deep blue sea.

It’s cheese, cheese, cheese that makes the mice go ‘round…

It’s mice, mice, mice that make the cats go ‘round…
It’s cats, cats, cats that make the dogs go ‘round…
It’s dogs, dogs, dogs that make the boys go ‘round…
It’s boys, boys, boys that make the girls go ‘round…
It’s girls, girls, girls that make the love go ‘round…
It’s love, love, love that makes the world go ‘round…

She sat on her hammock and strummed her guitar,

Strummed her guitar,

Strummed her guitar,

She sat on her hammock and strummed her guitar,

Strummed her guitar.
Oom plicka plicka

Oom plicka plicka

Oom plick plick plick!
He sat down beside her and smoked his cigar…
She said that she loved him and oh how she sighed…
He said that he loved her and oh how he lied…
They were to be married but somehow she died…
He went to her funeral but just for the ride…
He sat on her tombstone and laughed ‘til he cried…
The tombstone fell over and split-splat he died…
She went up to heaven and flip-flop she flied…
He went down the other way and sizzled and fried…
The devils they ate him with pitchforks and knives…
The moral of the story is don’t trust a guy!

I’ll sing you one o

Green grow the rushes o

What is your one o?

One is one and all alone and ever more shall be so.

I’ll sing you two o

Green grow the rushes o

What are your two o?

Two two lily white boys, clothed all in green o,

One is one and all alone and ever more shall be so.

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 who went to heaven…
Twelve for the twelve Apostles…

Call and answer

The other day

I met a bear

A great big bear

Oh way up there

The other day I met a bear,

A great big bear oh way up 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

And right behind

Me was that bear

Ahead of me

I saw a tree

A great big tree

Oh Lordy me!

The nearest branch

Was 10 feet up

I had to jump

And trust my luck…
And so I jumped

Into the air

And missed that branch

Oh way up there…

Now don’t you fret

And don’t you frown

I caught that branch

On the way back down…

The moral of

The story is

Don’t talk to bears

In tennis shoes…

That is the end

There is no more

Unless I meet

That bear once more…

I met that bear

Oh just once more

He was a rug

On the living room floor…

There were three jolly fishermen

There were three jolly fishermen

Fisher fisher men men men

Fisher fisher men men men

There were three jolly fishermen.

The first one’s name was Abraham
The first one’s name was Abraham

Abra Abra ham ham ham

Abra Abra ham ham ham

The first one’s name was Abraham.

The second one’s name was Isaac…
The third one’s name was Jacob…
They all went down to Amster…shh!
We mustn’t say that naughty word…
We’re gonna say it anyway…
They all went down to Amster-DAM!

Listen children to a story that was written long ago,

About a kingdom on a mountain and the valley far below.

On the mountain was a treasure buried deep beneath a stone,

And the valley people swore they’d have it for their very own.


So go ahead and hate your neighbor

You can go ahead and cheat a friend

Do it in the name of heaven

You can justify it in the end

There won’t be any trumpets blowing

Come the Judgment Day

And on the bloody morning after…

One tin soldier rides away
So the people of the valley sent a message up the hill

Asking for the buried treasure, tons of gold for which they’d kill.

Came an answer from the mountain: “With our brothers we will share

All the secrets of our mountain, all the riches buried there.”

So the valley cried with anger, “Mount your horses, draw your swords!”

And they killed the mountain people, so they won their just reward.

Now they stood beside the treasure on the mountain, dark and red,

Turned the stone and looked beneath it…

“Peace on Earth” was all it said.

All my bags are packed and I'm ready to go

I'm standin' here outside your door

I hate to wake you up to say goodbye, just to say goodbye.

But the dawn is breakin' and it's early morn,
The taxi's waitin' and he's blowin' his horn,
Already I'm so lonesome I could cry, lonesome I could cry…

So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you'll wait for me
Hold me like you'll never let me go, never let me go…
Cause I'm leavin' on a jet plane,
Don't know when I'll be back again,
Oh babe, I hate to go, how I hate to go…

There's so many times I've let you down,

So many times I've played around,
I tell you now, they don't mean a thing, they don’t mean a thing…
Every place I go, I'll think of you,
Every song I sing, I'll sing for you,
When I come back, I'll wear your wedding ring,

wear your wedding ring…

Now the time has come to leave you,
One more time, let me kiss you,
Close your eyes I'll be on my way, I’ll be on my way…
Dream about the days to come,
When I won't have to leave alone,
About the times, I won't have to say, I won’t have to say…


Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens,

Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens,

Brown paper packages tied up with string,

These are a few of my favorite things.
Cream-colored ponies and crisp apple strudel,

Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles,

Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings,

These are a few of my favorite things.

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes,

Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes,

Silver-white winters that melt into springs,

These are a few of my favorite things…

When the dog bites, when the bee stings,

When I’m feeling sad,

I simply remember my favorite things,

And then I don’t feel so bad.

I closed my eyes, drew back the curtain,

To see for certain, what I thought I knew.
Far far away, someone was weeping,
But the world was sleeping,
Any dream will do.

I wore my coat, with golden lining

Bright colours shining, wonderful and new.
And in the east, the dawn was breaking,
And the world was waking,
Any dream will do.

A crash of drums! A flash of light!

My golden coat flew out of sight!
The colours faded into darkness,
I was left alone…

May I return to the beginning,

The light is dimming, and the dream is too.
The world and I, we are still waiting, still hesitating,
Any dream will do.

There is a castle on a cloud,

I like to go there in my sleep,

Aren’t any floors for me to sweep,

Not in my castle on a cloud.

There is a room that’s full of toys,

There are a hundred boys and girls,

Nobody shouts or talks too loud,

Not in my castle on a cloud.

There is a lady all in white,

Holds me and sings a lullaby,

She’s nice to see and she’s soft to touch,

She says, “Cosette, I love you very much…”

I know a place where no-one’s lost,

I know a place where no-one cries,

Crying at all is not allowed,

Not in my castle on a cloud.

White choral bells

Upon a slender stalk

Lillies of the valley on my garden walk.

Oh don’t you wish

That you could hear them ring,

That will only happen when the fairies sing.

Tall towering pines,

Beneath the pale moonlight,

You can hear them whisper

When the wind blows right.

Oh Road’s End Farm,

we love you best of all,

From the early morning

‘til the deep night falls.

Rose rose rose rose

Will I ever see thee wed?
I will marry at thy will sire,

At thy will.

Ding dong, ding dong,

Wedding bells on an April morn

Carve my name on a moss covered stone

On a moss covered stone.

Mother, father, dig my grave,

Dig it with a golden spade,

Bring some friends and a turtle dove,

To show that I died for love,

To show that I died for love.

Some say love, it is a river that drowns the tender reed,

Some say love it is a razor that leaves your soul to bleed,

Some say love, it is a hunger, an endless aching need,

I say love, it is a flower, and you it’s only seed.
It’s the heart afraid of breaking that never learns to dance,

It’s the dream afraid of waking that never takes a chance,

It’s the one who won’t be taken who cannot seem to give,

And the soul afraid of dying that never learns to live.
When the night has been too lonely,

And the road has been too long,

And you think that love is only for the lucky and the strong,

Just remember in the winter, far beneath the bitter snows,

Lies the seed that with the sun’s love,

In the spring becomes the rose.

Yesterday a child came out to wonder
Caught a dragonfly inside a jar
Fearful when the sky was full of thunder
And tearful at the falling of a star.


And the seasons they go round and round

And the painted ponies go up and down
We're captive on the carousel of time
We can't return we can only look

Behind from where we came

And go round and round and round in the circle game.

Now the boy’s gone ten times round the seasons

Skated over ten clear frozen streams
Words like “when you're older” must appease him
And promises of “someday” make his dreams.


Sixteen springs and sixteen summers gone now

Cartwheels turn to car wheels through the town
And they tell him “Take your time, it won't be long now,
’til you drag your feet to slow the circles down.”


Years go by and now the boy is twenty

His dreams have lost some grandeur coming true
There'll be new dreams, maybe better dreams and plenty
Before the last revolving year is through.


Love of mine
Someday you will die
But I’ll be close behind
I’ll follow you into the dark.

No blinding lights
Or tunnels to gates of white
Just our hands clasped so tight

Waiting for the hint of a spark.

If heaven and hell decide
That they both are satisfied

Illuminate the ‘No’s on their vacancy signs.
If there’s no-one beside you

When your soul embarks

Then I’ll follow you into the dark.
In Catholic school

Vicious as Roman rule

I had my knuckles bruised by a lady in black.

I held my tongue as she told me

Son, fear is the heart of love.”

So I never went back.

You and me

Have seen everything to see

From Bangkok to Calgary

And the soles of your shoes are all worn down.
The time for sleep is now

There’s nothing to cry about

Because we’ll hold each other soon

In the blackest of rooms.

Two days past eighteen
He was waiting for the bus in his army green
Sat down in a booth in a cafe there
Gave his order to a girl with a bow in her hair.
He's a little shy so she gives him a smile
And he said “Would you mind sittin' down for a while
And talking to me, I'm feeling a little low.”
She said “I'm off in an hour and I know where we can go.”

So they went down and they sat on the pier

He said “I bet you got a boyfriend but I don't care,
I got no one to send a letter to.
Would you mind if I sent one back here to you?”


I cried, never gonna hold the hand of another guy

Too young for him they told her
Waitin' for the love of a travelin' soldier
Our love will never end
Waitin' for the soldier to come back again
Never more to be alone when the letter said
A soldier's coming home

So the letters came from an army camp

In California then Vietnam
And he told her of his heart
It might be love and all of the things he was so scared of.
He said when it's getting kinda rough over here,
I think of that day sittin' down at the pier,
And I close my eyes and see your pretty smile.
Don't worry but I won't be able to write for awhile.


One Friday night at a football game,

The Lord's Prayer said and the Anthem sang,

A man said “Folks, would you bow your heads

For a list of local Vietnam dead.”
Crying all alone under the stands
Was a piccolo player in the marching band
At one name read but nobody really cared
But a pretty little girl with a bow in her hair.


Heading down south to the land of the pines.
I’m thumbing my way in the North Caroline.
Staring up the road, pray to God I see headlights.
Oh, I made it down the coast in seventeen hours,
Picking me a bouquet of dogwood flowers
And I’m hopin’ for Raleigh,
So I can see my baby tonight.


So rock me momma like a wagon wheel,
Rock me momma any way you feel.
Hey momma rock me.
Rock me momma like the wind and the rain,
Rock me momma like a south bound train.
Hey momma rock me.

Running from the cold up in New England.

I was born to be a fiddler in an old time string band.
My baby plays a guitar, I pick a banjo now.
Oh north country winters keep getting me,
Now I lost my money playing poker so I had to up and leave.
But I ain't turning back to living that old life no more.


Walkin' to the south out of Roanoke,
I caught a trucker out of Philly had a nice long joke.
But he’s heading west from the Cumberland gap,
Johnson City, Tennessee.
Now I gotta get a move on fit for the sun,
I hear my baby calling my name and I know that she’s the only one.
And if I die in Raleigh at least I will die free.


A long, long time ago...
I can still remember
How that music used to make me smile.

And I knew if I had my chance

That I could make those people dance
And, maybe, they’d be happy for a while.

But February made me shiver

With every paper I’d deliver.
Bad news on the doorstep;
I couldn’t take one more step.

I can’t remember if I cried

When I read about his widowed bride,
But something touched me deep inside
The day the music died.

Chorus: So … bye-bye, Miss American Pie.
Drove my Chevy to the levee,
But the levee was dry.
And them good old boys were
Drinkin’ whiskey and rye
Singin’, "this’ll be the day that I die.
"This’ll be the day that I die."

Did you write the book of love,

And do you have faith in God above,
If the Bible tells you so?
Do you believe in rock ’n roll,
Can music save your mortal soul,
And can you teach me how to dance real slow?

Well, I know that you’re in love with him

`cause I saw you dancin’ in the gym.
You both kicked off your shoes.
Man, I dig those rhythm and blues.

I was a lonely teenage broncin’ buck

With a pink carnation and a pickup truck,
But I knew I was out of luck
The day the music died.

Chorus: I started singin’…

Now for ten years we’ve been on our own

And moss grows fat on a rollin’ stone,
But that’s not how it used to be.
When the jester sang for the king and queen,
In a coat he borrowed from James Dean
And a voice that came from you and me,

Oh, and while the king was looking down,

The jester stole his thorny crown.
The courtroom was adjourned;
No verdict was returned.
And while Lennon read a book of Marx,
The quartet practiced in the park,
And we sang dirges in the dark
The day the music died.

Chorus: We were singing…

Helter skelter in a summer swelter.

The birds flew off with a fallout shelter,

Eight miles high and falling fast.
It landed foul on the grass.
The players tried for a forward pass,
With the jester on the sidelines in a cast.

Now the half-time air was sweet perfume

While the sergeants played a marching tune.
We all got up to dance,
Oh, but we never got the chance!
`cause the players tried to take the field;
The marching band refused to yield.
Do you recall what was revealed
The day the music died?

Chorus: We started singing…

Oh, and there we were all in one place,

A generation lost in space
With no time left to start again.
So come on: Jack be nimble, Jack be quick!
Jack Flash sat on a candlestick
Cause fire is the devil’s only friend.

Oh, and as I watched him on the stage

My hands were clenched in fists of rage.
No angel born in hell
Could break that Satan’s spell.
And as the flames climbed high into the night
To light the sacrificial rite,
I saw Satan laughing with delight
The day the music died

Chorus: He was singing…

I met a girl who sang the blues

And I asked her for some happy news,
But she just smiled and turned away.
I went down to the sacred store
Where I’d heard the music years before,
But the man there said the music wouldn’t play.

And in the streets: the children screamed,

The lovers cried, and the poets dreamed.
But not a word was spoken;
The church bells all were broken.
And the three men I admire most:
The father, son, and the holy ghost,
They caught the last train for the coast
The day the music died.

Chorus: And they were singing…

Edelweiss, edelweiss,

Every morning you greet me.

Small and white,

Clean and bright,

You look happy to meet me.

Blossom of snow

May you bloom and grow,

Bloom and grow forever.

Edelweiss, edelweiss,

Bless Road’s End Farm forever.

Mm-mm I wanna linger

Mm-mm a little longer

Mm a little longer here with you, with you.

Mm-mm it’s such a perfect night,

Mm-mm it doesn’t seem quite right,

Mm that it should be my last with you, with you.
Mm-mm and come September,

Mm-mm I will remember,

Mm all the nights I spent with you, with you.
Mm-mm and as the years go by,

Mm-mm I’ll think of you and smile,

Mm this is goodnight but not goodbye.

525,600 bugbites,
525,000 lectures from Tom that are
525,600 minutes
How do you measure a summer at the farm?

In daylights, in sunsets, in midnights, in cups of bug juice,

In hoofprints, in hands, in strides, and trail rides.
In 525,600 horses
How do you measure a summer at the farm?

How about love? (x3)

Measure in love…

Sessions at camp… (x2)

525,600 campers,
525,000 counselors to meet.
525,600 minutes
How do you measure the life of a gelding or a mare?

In lessons we learned,

Or in rings that we ride,

In brush that we burned,

Or the times that we cried!

It’s time now to sing out,

Though the memories never end.
Let’s celebrate, remember a summer in the life of friends.

Remember the love. (x3)

Measure in love…

Sessions at camp… (x2)

In grooming, wash buckets, the high side, and Gayle's bad temper
In bus rides, canoes, in dirty detail
In 525,600 talents,
How do you measure a last night at camp?

Measure in love… (x3)

Measure in love…

Sessions at camp… (2x)

Sometimes in our lives we all have pain

We all have sorrow
But if we are wise
We know that there's always tomorrow.

Lean on me, when you're not strong

And I'll be your friend
I'll help you carry on
For it won't be long
'Til I'm gonna need
Somebody to lean on.
Please swallow your pride
If I have things you need to borrow
For no-one can fill those of your needs
That you don't let show.
If there is a load you have to bear
That you can't carry
I'm right up the road
I'll share your load
If you just call me.
So just call on me brother, when you need a hand
We all need somebody to lean on
I just might have a problem that you'd understand
We all need somebody to lean on

When the night has come

And the land is dark
And the moon is the only light we'll see.

No I won't be afraid, no I won't be afraid

Just as long as you stand, stand by me.


And darlin', darlin', stand by me,

oh stand by me
Stand by me, stand by me, stand by me.

If the sky that we look upon

Should tumble and fall
And the mountains should crumble to the sea.

I won't cry, I won't cry, no I won't shed a tear

Just as long as you stand, stand by me.


Whenever you're in trouble

won't you stand by me,
oh stand by me.
Oh stand by me, stand by me,

Stand by me.
