All the Critters
Chorus:
All the critters got a place in the choir
Some sing low, some sing higher,
Some sing out loud on a telephone wire
Some just clap their hands, or paws,
Or anything they got now

Listen to the bass, it's the one on the bottom
Where the bullfrog croaks,
And the hippopotamus
Moans and groans with a big to do
And the old cow just goes moo

The dog and the cat, they take up the middle
Where the hummingbird hums,
And the crickets ddle
The donkey brays, and the pony neighs
And the old coyote howls

Chorus

Listen to the top, where the little bird sings
The melody and the high notes ring
The moon owl's hoot knows everything,
And the jaybird hits the breeze

Singing in the nighttime, singing in the day
And the little dog laughs when he's on his way
The possum ain't got much to say,
And the porcupine keeps to himself

Chorus

Well it's a simple song, you can sing anywhere
With the ox, and the fox, and the grizzly bears
Lonely alligator, and the hawk above,
Wise raccoon and turtledove

[repeat-after-me a verse, then sing it together]
The other day
I saw 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
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 ten feet up
I'd have to jump
And trust my luck

And so I jumped
Into the air
But I missed that branch
Oh way up there

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

Now that's the end
There ain't no more
Unless I meet
That bear once more

With the moon shining all around

For he had been dead
Since way
Last May
Amen

Its just a tattoo of a ower,

And I wanted someone to come out and play!
I heard a knock knock! And I opened the door,
And there stood the loveliest BIG dinosaur!

Me and my dinosaur,
Ive never had such a friend before!
As big as a house,
Twenty times and a half,
And fty times taller than any giraffe!
LEGS long as sequoia trees,
TEETH big as piano keys!
No two people are buddies more,
Than me and my dinosaur!

We hopscotched to Africa,
Quick as a breeze
While leapfrogging over the coconut trees.
And when we get thirsty,
Mile after mile,
In one great big gulp
We just drink up the Nile!

Chorus

We got out some cookies
And we had a snack.
He asked if I wanted to ride on his back.
I started to climb
From his tail to his cheek.
The trip was so long,
It took nearly a week!

Chorus
Nothings as ne
As me and my dinosaur! *stomp stomp stomp*

Well, I walked around the corner
And I walked around the block
And I walked right into a doughnut shop
And I picked up a doughnut,
Fresh from the grease
And I handed the lady a ve cent piece.

Well, she looked at the nickel,
And she looked at me
And she said This nickel is no good to me
Theres a hole in the middle,
And it goes RIGHT through
And I said Theres a hole
In my doughnut, too!
Thanks for the doughnut,
Good day!

Had a wooden leg
and she couldn't walk hooome!

Love 'er just the same!

Haven't had a bath in two years,
And I never change my clothes!
Where I got these little black things
Only God in Heaven knows

Chorus

Once a cute boy tried to kiss me,
But he screamed and gave a yell
And I never got to ask him
Was it the black things, or the smell

Chorus

























The Little Fishie Song
Have you ever been shin'
On a hot summer's day?
Sittin' on the dock
And the dock gave away
Alligator snappin'
At the seat of your pants
And all the little shies
Do the hoochie-coochie dance

You never did, and you never will

Have you ever been swimmin'
On a hot summer's day?
With all the little shies
Swimmin' up and down the bay
With their hands in their pockets
And their pockets on their pants
And all the little shies
Do the hoochie-coochie dance

You never did, and you never will

Have you ever gone sailin'
On a hot summer's day?
Puttin' up the mast,
And the mast gave away
Your boat ipped over
And you lost your pants?
And all the little shies
Do the hoochie-coochie dance

You never did, and you never will

Three cheers for auld lange syne

Above the great blue sky

Their children will have ducks (quack quack!)

For forty-seven bucks

But that was all baloneo
Patteroosky, blow your horn (TOOT TOOT!)

Annie's Song
You ll up my senses,
Like a night in the forest,
Like the mountains in spring time,
Like a walk in the rain.
Like a storm in the desert,
Like a sleepy blue ocean,
You ll up my senses,
Come ll me again.

Come let me love you,
Let me give my life to you,
Let me drown in your laughter,
Let me die in your arms.
Let me lay down beside you,
Let me always be with you,
Come let me love you,
Come love me again.




























April in Her Eyes
There once was a king
Who called for the spring,
For his world was still covered in snow
But the spring had no been,
For he was wicked and mean
In his winter elds nothing would grow

Then a traveler called,
Seeking help at the door
Only food and a bed for the night
He ordered his slave
To turn her away
The girl with April in her eyes

Chorus
Oh, oh, on and on she goes
Through the winter and the high winds
And the snow
Ride, ride, on and on she rides
She is called the girl with April in her eyes

She rode through the night,
'Till she came to the light
Of a humble man's home in the wood
He brought her inside
And by the relight she died
And he buried her gently and true

Oh the morning was bright,
All the world was snow white
But when he came to the place where she lay
The eld was ablaze
With owers on the grave
Of the girl with April in her eyes

Chorus

And the barges, too, go silently

Chorus:
Barges, I would like to go with you
I would like to sail the ocean blue
Barges, have you treasures in your hold?
Do you ght with pirates, brave and bold?

Out of my window, looking in the night,
I can see the barges ickering light.
Starboard shines green and port is glowing red
I can see them ickering far ahead

Chorus

Out of my window, looking in the night,
I can see the barges ickering light.
Silently ows the river to the sea,
And I wish it too would carry me.

Chorus





















The Bottle Song
I have a little present here for you,
Inside this tiny bottle, so very small and blue
Please do not uncork it,
Simply put it on away
For inside there lies a summer's day
Put it on away

I'd be pleased if you didn't ask
Why I gave this gift to you
Don't know myself, did it on a whim
As the thought came running through
I just want to make you happy
In a summertime sort of way
And I thought you might like your own
Summer's day
Put it on away

Can you read the writing on
This tiny bottle's wall?
I know that it's quite small,
But I can read it all
It says, She who is a-readin' me
Is lookin' right at my side,
And might be sort of interested
At what lies inside
There'll be one breath of a buttery,
One ray from the sun,
And lots and lots of laughter
From little children's fun
So don't you dare uncork it,
Or everything will get away
And I thought you might like your own
Summer's day
Put it on away

[repeat rst verse]









Change the World
Chorus:
Change the world, Come with me
Time to let our dreams y free
And it comes so easily,
That is our way
Every moment we're alive
It's our love that will survive!
In the Girl Scouts together,
We change the world.

Sisters of every color, friends from everywhere
We all make a difference
When we show the world we care.
The Girl Scouts are our family,
And they show us what we can be,
And I believe, together, we change the world

Chorus



























Country Roads
Almost heaven, West Virginia
Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River
Life is old there, older than the trees
Younger than the mountains,
Blowing like the breeze

Chorus:
Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West Virginia, mountain momma
Take me home, country roads

All my memories, gather round her
Miner's lady, stranger to blue water
Dark and dusty, painted on the sky
Misty taste of moonshine teardrop in my eye

Chorus

I hear her voice, in the morning
How she calls me
Radio reminds me of my home far away
Driving down the road I get a feeling
That I should have been home yesterday
Yesterday

Chorus


















Daisies in the Sun
Chorus:
May all of your dreams
Bloom like daisies in the sun
May you always have
Stars in your eyes
May you not stop running,
Not until your race is run
And may you always have
Blue skies

A dream is something all your own
To keep within your heart
To build on when you're glad
Or when your world's been torn apart
A dream is something all your own
That no one else can steal
A dream is something you can make
Come real

Chorus

Now you can share a laugh
With any stranger that you meet
You can share your money with
A beggar on the street
But you can only share a dream
When love has set it free
Why don't you share yours
With me

Chorus














Family of Friends
Whenever you nd yourself thinking of a place
Where love's light surrounds you
And shines upon your face
Just let it uphold you, and let it ll your soul
Allow our love to ll you,
Just let the feelings roll

Let them roll into your future,
Let them journey through your heart
Remember we'll never be truly apart
Just call upon your love light
Whenever you're down
And show others what you have found

Until we are all back together again
Just go forward boldly and be your own friend
'Cause we will support you
In reaching your goals
We'll send our love to comfort you
So let the feelings roll

Let them roll into your future,
Let them journey through your heart
Remember we'll never be truly apart
For we are a family, a family of friends
And our love will never end



















Fireies
Before you knew me, I was a fairy princess
I caught frogs, and called them Prince
And made myself a queen
Before you knew me, I traveled 'round the world
I slept in castles, and fell in love
Because I was taught to dream

Chorus:
I found mayonnaise jars and poked holes on top
To capture Tinkerbell
They were just reies to the untrained eye
But I could always tell, 'cause
I believe in fairy tales
And dreamer's dreams, like bedsheet sails
And I believe in Peter Pan, and miracles
Anything I can to get by,
And reies

Before I grew up, I saw you on a cloud
Could bless myself in your name
And pat you on your wings
Before I grew up, I heard you whisper so loud
Life is hard and so is love, child,
Believe in all these things

Chorus

[repeat rst verse]

Chorus















Free to be You and Me
There's a land that I see
Where the children are free
And they say it ain't far to this land
From where we are
Take my hand, come with me
Where the children are free
Come with me, take my hand, and we'll live

In a land where the river runs free
In a land through the green country
And you and me are free to be
You and me

I see a land, bright and clear
And the time's coming near
When we'll live in this land
You and me, hand in hand
Take my hand, come along
Lend your voice to this song
Come along, take my hand, sing a song

To a land where the river runs free
To a land through the green country
To a land to the shining sea
To a land where the horses run free
And you and me are free to be
You and me

Every boy in this land
Grows to be his own man
Every girl in this land
Grows to be her own woman
Take my hand, come with me
Where the children are free
Come with me, take my hand and we'll run

To a land where the river runs free
To a land through the green country
To a land to the shining sea
To a land where the horses run free
To a land where the children are free
And you and me are free to be
You and me


Give Yourself to Love
Kind friends all gather 'round, there's
Something I would say
What bring us together here
Has blessed us all today.
Love has made a circle
That holds us all inside,
Where strangers are as family,
Loneliness can't hide

Chorus:
You must give yourself to love,
If love is what you're after
Open up your hearts to the
Tears and laughter
And give yourself to love, and
Give yourself to love

Walked these mountains in the rain, I've
Learned to love the wind
I've been up before the sunrise
Just to watch the day begin
And I always knew I'd nd you
Though I never did know how
Like sunshine on a cloudy day, you
Stand before me now

Chorus

Your love is born in re, it's
Planted like a seed
Love can't give you everything,
But it gives you what you need
Love comes when you're ready,
Love comes when you're afraid,
It'll be your greatest teacher,
The best friend you have made

Chorus







Good Riddance
Another turning point,
A fork stuck in the road
Time grabs you by the wrist,
Directs you where to go

So make the best of this test
And don't ask why
It's not a question,
But a lesson learned in time

Chorus:
It's something unpredictable
But in the end it's right
I hope you had the time of your life

So take the photographs
And still frames in your mind
Hang it up on a shelf
In good health and good times

Tattoos and memories
And dead skin on trial,
For what it's worth,
It was worth all the while

Chorus (x2)



















Gypsy
You come from far away,
With pictures in your eyes
Of coffee shops, and morning streets
And the blue and silent sunrise
But night is the cathedral
Where we recognize the sign
We strangers know each other now
As part of a whole design

Chorus:
So now hold me like a baby
That will not fall asleep
Curl me up inside you
Let me hear you through the heat
Oh, oh, oh, oh

You're the jester of this courtyard,
With a smile like a girl's
Distracted by the women
With the dimples and the curls
By the pretty and the mischievous
By the timid and the blessed
By the blowing skirts of ladies
Who promise to gather you to their breast

Chorus



















You have hands of raining water,
And that earring in your ear
The wisdom on your face denies
The number of your years
With the ngers of a potter,
And the laughing tale of the fool
The arranger of disorder
With your strange yet simple rules

Yeah now I've met me another spinner
Of strange and gauzy thread
With a long and slender body
And a bump upon the head

Chorus

With a long and slender body
And the sweetest, softest hands
And we'll blow away forever soon
And go on to distant lands
Please do not ever look for me
And with me you will stay
And you'll hear yourself in song
Blowing by again someday

But now
Chorus



















Hobo's Lullaby
Chorus:
So go to sleep you weary hobo,
Let the towns drift slowly by
Can't you hear the steel rails humming
That's the hobo's lullaby

I know your clothes are torn and ragged
And your hair is turning grey
Lift your head and smile at troubles
You'll nd peace and rest someday

Chorus

Don't you worry 'bout tomorrow
Let tomorrow come and go
Tonight you're in a nice warm boxcar
Safe from all that wind and snow

Chorus

I know the police cause you trouble
They cause trouble everywhere
But when you die and go to heaven
There'll be no policemen there

Chorus



















Human Touch
It's the human touch in this world that counts
The touch of your hand in mine
It means far more to the fainting heart
Than shelter, bread, and wine

The shelter's gone when the night is o'er
The bread lasts only a day
But the touch of your hand
And the sound of your voice
Lives on in my soul always

May the road rise up to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the sunshine warm upon your face
The rains fall soft upon your eld

And until we meet again someday
May God hold you in the palm of his hand
May the memories that we have shared
Linger on and on.

























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 warning
I'd hammer out the 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 warning
I'd ring out the 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 warning
I'd sing out the love between
My brothers and my sisters
All over this land

Well I have a hammer, and I have a bell
And I have a song to sing, all over this land
It's the hammer of justice,
It's the bell of freedom,
It's a song of love between
My brothers and my sisters
All over this land































































Iowa
I've never had a way with women
But the hills of Iowa
Make me wish that I could
And I've never found a way
To say I love you
But if the chance came by,
Oh I, I would

But way back where I come from,
We never mean to bother
We don't like to make our passions
Other people's concerns
And we walk in a world of safe people
And at night we walk into
Our houses and burn

Chorus:
I-o-o-o-o-o-o i-o-o i-o-o-o i-o Iowa
I-o-o-o-o-o-o i-o-o i-o-o-o i-o Iowa

How I long to fall, Just a little bit
To dance out of the lines
And stray from the light
But I fear that to fall in love with you
Is to fall from a great
And gruesome height



















So I asked a friend about it,
On a bad day
Her husband had just left her
She sat down on a chair he left behind
She said, What is love,
Where did it get me?
Whoever thought of love
Is no friend of mine.

Chorus

One I had everything, I gave it up
For the should of your driveway
And the words I've never felt
And so for you, I came this far across the tracks
Ten miles above the limit
And with no seatbelt
And I'd do it again

For tonight, I went running
Through the screen doors of discretion
For I woke up from a nightmare
That I could not stand to see
You were wandering, out on the hills of Iowa
And you were not thinking of me

Chorus



















Isle Au Haut
If I could give you three things
I would give you these
Song, laughter, and a wooden boat
In the shining sea

Chorus:
When you see the Isle Au Haut
Rising in the dawn
You will play in yellow elds
In the morning sun

Chorus

Sleep where the wind is warm
And the moon is high
Give sadness to the stars,
And sorrow to the sky

Chorus

Do you hear what the sails are saying
In the wind stark song?
Give sadness to the stars,
Blown alee and gone

Chorus

Sleep now the moon is high
And the wind blows cold
For you are sad and young
And the sea is old

Chorus

If I could give you three things
I would give you these
Song, laughter, and a wooden boat
In the shining sea

Chorus





Jamie Boy
Chorus:
Jamie boy, Jamie boy
I see you walking by
The water, the water
The water, blue water
My Jamie boy, Jamie boy
I see you walkin' all alone
Why are you walkin' all alone?

Somebody should be with you
My Jamie boy
Should be holding my Jamie boy
Somebody I know
Doo-ba doo-ba doo-ba doo-ba

Chorus

Somebody is so eager to walk with you
And is eager to talk with you
Somebody I know
Doo-ba doo-ba doo-ba doo-ba

Chorus

Can't you see who is eager to walk with you?
And is eager to talk with you?
You ought to know
Doo-ba doo-ba doo-ba doo-ba

Chorus

It is I, who is eager to walk with you
And is eager to talk with you
I love you so
Doo-ba doo-ba doo-ba doo-ba

Chorus








Leaving on a Jet Plane
All my bags are packed, I'm ready to go
I'm standing here outside your door
I hate to wake you up to say goodbye
But the dawn is breaking, it's early morn
The taxi's waiting, he's blowing his horn
Already I'm so lonesome I could cry

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

Chorus

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

Chorus













Linger
Mm-mm, I want to linger
Mm-mm, a little longer
Mm-mm, a little longer here with you

Mm-mm, it's such a perfect night
Mm-mm, It doesn't seem quite right
Mm-mm, that it should be last with you

Mm-mm, and come September
Mm-mm, I will remember
Mm-mm, our camping days and friendships true

Mm-mm, and as the years go by
Mm-mm, I'll think of you and sigh
Mm-mm, this is goodnight and not goodbye

Mm-mm, I want to linger
Mm-mm, a little longer
Mm-mm, a little longer here with you


Meg's Lullaby
[works well in a round]
Sing your lullaby to the world
It's a happy song, you know
For the children need their sleep
To grow

Softly as the people sleep,
The moon moves through the sky
As she sings to us all
Her lullaby













The Mountain Song
I have dreamed on this mountain,
Since rst I was my mother's daughter
And you can't just take my dreams away
Not with me watching

You may drive a big machine,
But I was born a great big woman,
And you can't just take my dreams away
Without me ghting

On the mountain, I raised my many daughters
Some died young, some still living
But if you're comin' here
For to take of my mountain
Well, I ain't come here to give it

You may drive a big machine,
But I was born a great big woman
And you can't just take my dreams away
Not with me watching
No you can't just take my dreams away
Without me ghting
No you can't just take my dreams away!






















My Friend
Chorus:
Hey you, with the ashin' smile
Come on and sing with me for a while
And pretty soon we'll have the sun singin' too
Then I know that I can call you my friend

And I know through rain or shine
We'll treat each other mighty ne
We'll be so happy just bein' friends
That our happiness will know no end

Chorus

I know sometimes we'll disagree
But maybe that'll build a better me
So I'll ask you to tell me what's wrong,
And together we'll sing a happy song

Chorus

We'll drift apart someday,
Each to follow our own separate ways
But I know we'll meet again
And I'll still call you my friend

Chorus


Oh How Lovely
[best done in a round]
Oh how lovely is the evening, is the evening
When the bells are sweetly ringing, sweetly
ringing
Ding dong, ding dong, ding dong

[split group into three concentric hand-holding
circles for the round, walk to the right for the rst
line, to the left for the second, and swing hands
for the third, and repeat]






On My Honor
Chorus:
On my honor, I will try
Theres a duty to be done, and I say Aye
Theres a reason here for a reason above.
My honor is to try and my duty is to love.

People dont need to know my name,
If Ive done any wrong, then Im to blame.
If Ive helped another, then Ive helped me
If Ive opened up my eyes to see.

Ive tucked away a song or two.
When youre feeling low, theres one for you.
If you need a friend, then I will come,
And theres many more where I come from.

Chorus

Come with me where the re burns bright,
We can even see better by candle;s light.
And we nd more meaning in a campres glow
Than wed ever learn in a year or so.

Weve made a promise to always keep,
And pray softly for all before we sleep.
Well be Girl Scouts together and when were
gone,
Well still be trying and singing this song.

Chorus





























































On The Loose
Chorus:
On the loose to climb a mountain
On the loose where I am free
On the loose to live my life
The way I think my life should be
For I only have a moment
And a whole world yet to see
I'll be looking for tomorrow
On the loose

Have you ever seen the sunrise
Turn the sky completely red?
Have you slept beneath the moon and stars,
A pine bough for your bed?
Have you sat and talked with friends,
Though a word was never said?
Then you're just like me and
You've been on the loose

Chorus

There's a trail that I've been hiking
Just to see where it might go
Many places yet to visit
Many people yet to know
And in following my dreams
I will live and I will grow
On the trail that's waiting out there
On the loose

Chorus














So in search of love and laughter
I'll be traveling this ne land
Never sure of where I'm going
For I haven't any plans
But in time when you are ready
Come and join me, take my hand
And together we'll nd life out
On the loose

Chorus

In the world where I am traveling
I will think of you each day
Remembering your smile
For it seems like yesterday
When we sat beneath the stars,
And we dreamed about today
We have come together and
We are on the loose

Chorus

























Open the Door
Sometimes I remember the old days
When the world was lled with sorrow
Might have thought I was living,
But I was all alone

In my heart, the rain was falling,
The winds blew, the night was calling
Come back, come back
You're all I've ever known

Chorus:
Open the door and come on in
I'm so glad to see you, my friend
You're like a rainbow coming
Around the bend
And when I see you happy,
Well it sets my heart free
I'd like to be as good a friend to you
As you are to me

There were friends who could always see me
Through the haze, their smiles would reach me
Saying okay, saying goodbye
Saying hello

Know I know, that what I was after
Was life, love, tears and laughter
Hello my good friend, hello my darling
What do you know?

Chorus

Use to think that it was only me
Feeling alone, not feeling free
To be alive, to be a friend
Now I know, we all have stormy weather
Sun shines through when we're together
I'll be your friend right through to the end

Chorus





Picking Flowers
Chorus
Picking owers in the rain
And laughing with the sun
Try to teach them how to live by themselves
And still get things done

Gonna be a counselor at a summer camp
Gonna nd out what it's all about
Little eyes gonna look up to you
Little hands reaching out

Chorus

Build a re, dig a trench,
Sharp an axe with a whet stone
Then maybe next time when you're not there
They can do it on their own

Chorus

Days are long and nights are short
And the pay is so small
And you really don't know if what you say
Sinks in at all

Chorus

Sometimes things don't work out right
And we think that we are ops
Well they look at us, and they smile at us
And they beg us not to stop

Chorus

That's why I'm here at this summer camp
And I hope you feel the same way
There's a lot to get, but there's more to give
And I hope you're here to stay

Chorus





Puff the Magic Dragon
Chorus:
Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist
In a land called Honah Lee,

Little Jackie Paper, he loved that rascal Puff,
And brought her strings and sealing wax
And other fancy stuff.

Chorus

Together they would travel
On a boat with billowed sail
Jackie kept a lookout perched
On Puff's gigantic tail.
Noble kings and princes
would bow whene'er they came,
Pirate ships would lower their ag
When Puff roared out her name.

Chorus

A dragon lives forever,
But not so little boys
Painted wings and giant rings
Make way for other toys.
One grey night it happened,
Jackie Paper came no more
And Puff that mighty dragon,
She ceased her fearless roar.

Her head was bent in sorrow,
Green scales fell like rain,
Puff no longer went to play
Along the cherry lane.
Without her life-long friend,
Puff could not be brave,
So Puff that mighty dragon,
Sadly slipped into her cave.

Chorus




Rainbow Connection
Why are there so many
Songs about rainbows
And what's on the other side
Rainbows are visions
Not only illusions
And rainbow have nothing to hide
So we've been told and
Some choose to believe it
I know they're wrong, wait and see

Chorus:
Someday we'll nd it,
The rainbow connection,
The lovers, the dreamers, and me

Who said that every wish
Would be heard and answered,
If wished on a morning star?
Somebody thought of that,
And someone believed it,
And look what it's done so far

What's so amazing that keeps us stargazing?
And what do we think we might see?

Chorus

All of us under its spell,
I know that it's probably magic

Have you been half asleep,
Or have you heard voices?
I've heard them calling my name
Is it the sweet sound
That calls the young sailors?
The voice might be one and the same

I've heard it too many times to ignore it
Is it something that I'm supposed to be?

Chorus




Rainbow Loving
Chorus:
We're a rainbow, made of children
We're an army, singing a song
There's no weapon that can stop us
Rainbow lovin' is much too strong

I was born in Mississippi
Sayin' yes sir to all the men
But I found that got me nowhere
So I'll never say it again

Chorus

I was taught that black was evil
I was taught that white was good
But when you become the rainbow
All the colors are understood

Chorus

Difference skin tones, different eye shapes,
Different textures of our hair
Different colors make a rainbow
We're all family, and we care

Chorus

I am glad we all are different
I am glad we are not the same
Many colors make the rainbow
Rainbow children is our name

Chorus












Sarah's Song
I don't really know
What makes me ramble so
Someday I'll nd out
What it's all about
That keeps me on the go

Some say I'm running from
Reality's schemes
Trying to nd peace of mind
They're faceless people
With no distant dreams
I'm just following mine

So if seeking dreams is my
TREND THEN MY
Traveling days will never end
For it's difcult to nd
All the wonders of my mind
As I wait the road's next bend

[repeat, 'ohh-ing' rst verse]


Say When
Say why, do we have to say goodbye?
Say why, do we have to say goodbye?
Say why, do we have to say goodbye?
Say why, my friend, say why

Say when, will we ever meet again?
Say when, will we ever meet again?
Say when, will we ever meet again?
Say when, my friend, say when

Say where, and Ill meet you right there.
Say where, and Ill meet you right there.
Say where, and Ill meet you right there.
Say where, my friend, say where

Say why, do we have to say goodbye?
Say when, will we ever meet again?
Say where, and Ill meet you right there.
Say why, say when, say where


Saying Goodbye
Saying goodbye, going away
Seems like goodbye's such a hard thing to say
Touching our hands, wondering why
It's time for saying goodbye

Saying goodbye, why is it sad?
Makes us remember the good times we've had
Much more to say, foolish to try
It's time for saying goodbye

Don't want to leave, but we all know
Sometimes it's better to go

Somehow I know, we'll meet again,
Not sure quite where and I don't know just when
You're in my heart, so until then,
It's time for saying goodbye

Somehow I know, we'll meet again,
Not sure quite where and I don't know just when
You're in my heart, so until then,
It's time for saying goodbye

La la la la, la la la la
It's time for saying goodbye
La la la la, la la la la
La la la la la la loooo


















Song of the Soul
Open mine eyes, that I may see
Glimpses of truth thou hast for me
Open mine eyes, illumine me
Spirit divine

Love of my life I am crying,
I am not dying, I am dancing
Dancing alone in the madness
There is no sadness
Only a song of the soul

Chorus:
And we'll sing this song,
Why don't you sing along?
And we can sing for a long, long time
Why don't you sing this song?
Why don't you sing along?
And we can sing for a long, long time

What do you do for a living?
Are you forgiving?
Giving shelter
Follow your heart, love will nd you
The truth will unbind you
Sing out a song of the soul!

Chorus

Come to your life like a WARRIOR!
Nothing will bore you,
You can be happy
Let in the light it will heal you,
When it can feel you
Sing out a song of the soul

Chorus









Sparky's Song
Oh the time has passed so quickly,
And it seems like yesterday
Traveled far away from home
To where I am today
Thought that I was destined
To be lost and all alone
'Til I came upon these people
Who made me feel at home

Chorus:
And I, want to tell you
Just how much I love you
Tell you all the things
That you should know, like
Thank you for just being here
And giving of your time
Giving me the space I need to grow

Well, I felt at once a kinship
With my friends here at my side
Felt I was accepted,
And I had no need to hide
Knew that I could handle
What the world would send my way
Though some times were more than hard,
I'd never change a day

Chorus

Well, my story is not over
Though we have to turn the page
Take up where our paths left off
And go our separate ways
But a lifetime's worth of memories
Have been found in these few days
If we ever meet again,
I know I'll have to say

Chorus






Summer Song
Chorus:
You make me wanna sing a summer song
Of blue skies and sunny days
You make me wanna sing a summer song
One that we'll remember
The whole year long

Summer skies are blue,
And friendships are true
I found some peace
Just in knowing you

Chorus

I watch the stars at night
Oh what a sight
It feels so right
That I could stay here all night

Chorus


Today
Chorus:
Today, while the blossoms still cling to the vine
I'll taste your strawberries,
I'll drink your sweet wine
A million tomorrows shall all pass away
'Ere I forget all the joy that were mine
Today

Well I'll be a dandy, and I'll be a rover
You'll know who I am by the songs that I sing
I'll feast at your table
I'll sleep in your clover
Who knows what tomorrow may bring

Chorus

I can't be contented with yesterday's glory
I can't live on promises winter to spring
Today is my moment and now is my story
I'll laugh and I'll cry and I'll sing

Chorus
Trio Song
I see the moon, and the moon sees me
The moon sees somebody I'd like to see
So God bless the moon
And God bless me
And God bless somebody I'd like to see

So hurry on home, and jump into bed
Say your prayers, don't cover your head
The very next thing I say unto you
Is have sweet dreams,
I'll have sweet dreams of you.

Green trees around us,
Bright stars above
Friends all around us
Sing songs lled with love
Taps sounding softly,
Hearts beating true
As Camp Pisgah says,
Good night to you.

Day is done, gone the sun,
From the lakes, from the hills, from the skies
From each burning dying ember,
There are friendships to remember
As we sing our last goodnight
Goodnight
Goodnight
(Goodnight, Camp Pisgah)
















Wee Baby Moon
There's a wee baby moon
Lying on his back
With his funny little toes in the air
And he's all alone
In the deep blue sky
But the wee baby moon doesn't care

Baby moon, keep shining on me
Baby moon, keep shining on me

There's a wee baby moon
Lying on his back
With his funny little toes in the air
And he's all alone
In the deep blue sky
But the wee baby moon-
But the wee baby moon!
But the wee baby moon doesn't care


Where Have All The Flowers Gone
Where have all the owers gone?
Long time passing
Where have all the owers gone?
Long time ago
Where have all the owers gone?
Gone to young girls every one
When will they ever learn?
When will they ever learn?

Young girls...young men
Young men...soldiers
Soldiers...graveyards
Graveyards...owers











White Coral Bells
[can be done in a round]
White coral bells
Upon a slender stalk
Lilies of the valley
Deck my garden walk

Oh don't you wish
That you could hear them ring
That will happen only
When the fairies sing


Wishboat Song
Who can sail where there is no wind,
With no oars to be rowing?
Who can sail far away from a friend,
With no tears a-owing?

I can sail where there is no wind,
With no oars to be rowing,
But I can't sail far away from a friend,
With no tears a-owing.

I'll set my wishes out o'er the sea,
In little boats all a-glowing
I'll make a wish for you and me,
With our love a-owing

And as our candles drift away,
A wish we are making for you,
We hope to see you again some day,
May our wish come true.













Woke Up This Morning
[works well in a round]
Woke up this morning with my mind
Set on freedom!
Woke up this morning with my mind
Set on freedom!
Woke up this morning with my mind
Set on freedom!
Hallelu- Hallelu- Hallelujah

I'm gonna walk, walk
I'm gonna talk, talk
I'm gonna walk, walk
With my mind on freedom!
I'm gonna walk, walk
I'm gonna talk, talk
I'm gonna walk, walk
With my mind on freedom!
I'm gonna walk, walk
I'm gonna talk, talk
I'm gonna walk, walk
With my mind on freedom!
Hallelu- Hallelu- Hallelujah























World of Our Own
Close the door, light the lights
We're staying here tonight
Far away from the bustle and the
Bright city lights
Let it all fade away,
And just leave us alone
And we'll live in a world of our own

Chorus:
We'll build a world of our own,
That those who wish can share
All our sorrows we'll leave
Far behind us there
And I know you will nd
That there'll be peace of mind
When we live in a world of our own

Oh my friends, oh my friends
I've thought of you so much
Lonely days without singing
While I longed for your touch
Now your smile can erase
All the heartache I've known
Come with me to a world of our own

Chorus
