On Top of Spaghetti
(to the tune of On Top of Old Smokey)
"On Top of Spaghetti" is a well-known folk song and children's song written and originally performed by folk singer Tom Glazer in 1963 and is sometimes called The Meatball Song.

     On top of spaghetti
     All covered with cheese,
     I lost my poor meatball,
     When somebody sneezed.

     It rolled off the table
     And onto the floor,
     And then my poor meatball
     Rolled out of the door.

     It rolled in the garden
     And under a bush,
     And then my poor meatball
     Was nothing but mush.

     The mush was as tasty
     As tasty could be,
     And then the next summer
     It grew into a tree.

     The tree was all covered,
     All covered with moss,
     And on it grew meatballs,
     And tomato sauce.

     So if you eat spaghetti
     All covered with cheese,
     Hold onto your meatball
     Lest somebody sneeze.
 




Found A Peanut
(Tune: Clementine, Author: Unknown)

Found a peanut, found a peanut,
Found a peanut just now,
Just now I found a peanut,
Found a peanut just now.

Cracked it open, cracked it open,
Cracked it open just now,
Just now I cracked it open,
Cracked it open just now.

It was rotten, it was rotten,
It was rotten just now,
Just now it was rotten,
It was rotten just now.

Ate it anyway, ate it anyway,
Ate it anyway just now,
Just now I ate it anyway,
Ate it anyway just now.

Got a stomach ache, got a stomach ache,
Got a stomach ache just now,
Just now I got a stomach ache,
Got a stomach ache just now.

Called the doctor, called the doctor,
Called the doctor just now,
Just now I called the doctor,
Called the doctor just now.

Penicillin, Penicillin,
Penicillin just now,
Just now I took Penicillin
Penicillin just now.

Operation, operation,
Operation just now,
Just now an operation,
An operation just now.

Died anyway, died anyway,
Died anyway just now,
Just now I died anyway,
Died anyway just now.

Went to heaven, went to heaven,
Went to heaven just now,
Just now I went to heaven,
Went to heaven just now.

Wouldn't take me, wouldn't take me,
Wouldn't take me just now,
Just now Heaven wouldn't take me,
Wouldn't take me just now.

Went the other way, went the other way.
Went the other way just now,
Just now I went the other way,
Went the other way just now.

Didn't want me, didn't want me,
Didn't want me just now,
Just now they didn't want me,
Didn't want me just now.

Was a dream, was a dream,
Was a dream just now,
Just now it was a dream,
Was a dream, just now.

Then I woke up, then I woke up,
Then I woke up just now,
Just now I woke up,
I woke up just now.

Found a peanut, found a peanut,
Found a peanut just now,
Just now I found a peanut,
Found a peanut just now.




The Ants Came Marching
(to the tune of When Johnny Comes Marching Home)
author unknown

     The ants came marching one by one, Hurrah, Hurrah,
     The ants came marching one by one, Hurrah, Hurrah,
     The ants came marching one by one,
     The little one stopped to suck his thumb,
     And they all went marching down...
     to the ground... to get out... of the rain...

     The ants came marching two by two, Hurrah, Hurrah...
     The little one stopped to tie his shoe...

     The ants came marching three by three, Hurrah, Hurrah...
    The little one stopped to climb a tree...

     The ants came marching four by four...
     The little one stopped to shut the door...

     The ants came marching five by five...
     The little one stopped to take a dive...

     The ants came marching six by six...
     The little one stopped to pick up sticks...

     The ants came marching seven by seven
     The little one stopped to wave at heaven...

     The ants came marching eight by eight...
     The little one stopped to make them late...

     The ants came marching nine by nine...
     The little one stopped to scratch his spine...

     The ants came marching ten by ten...
     The little one stopped to say THE END...

in his hands,  (3 times)

     (Then add some of your own verses!)

Freres Jacques
(French folk song)

     Din, din, don! Din, din, don!
 

and the English version --

Are You Sleeping

She'll Be Coming Round the Mountain (author unknown)

She'll be coming round the mountain when she comes
She'll be coming round the mountain when she comes
She'll be coming round the mountain, she'll be coming round the mountain,
She'll be coming round the mountain when she comes

She'll be driving six white horses when she comes
She'll be driving six white horses when she comes
She'll be driving six white horses, she'll be driving six white horses,
She'll be driving six white horses when she comes

Oh, we'll all go out to meet her when she comes
Oh, we'll all go out to meet her when she comes
Oh, we'll all go out to meet her, we'll all go out to meet her,
We'll all go out to meet her when she comes

We will all have chicken and dumplings when she comes
We will all have chicken and dumplings when she comes
We will all have chicken and dumplings, We will all have chicken and dumplings
We will all have chicken and dumplings when she comes


I've Been Working On the Railroad (American folk song)

     I've been working on the railroad
     All the livelong day,
     I've been working on the railroad
     Just to pass the time away,
     Can't you hear the whistle blowing
     Rise up so early in the morn,
     Can't you hear the captain shouting
     Dinah, blow your horn!

     Dinah won't you blow,
     Dinah won't you blow,
     Dinah won't you blow your horn!

     Someone's in the kitchen with Dinah,
     Someone's in the kitchen I know, I know -oh,
     Someone's in the kitchen with Dinah,
     Strumming on the old banjo,
     They're singing...

     Fe fi fiddley-i-o,
     Fe fi fiddley-i-o-o-o-o,
     Fe fi fiddley-i-OOOOOO!,
     Strummin' on the old banjo!


This one is a good one to  have one person sing the verses and everyone
join in on the chorus. Listen carefully to the humorous lyrics as they tell the story.

Clementine (traditional)

     In a cavern, in a canyon,
     Excavating for a mine,
     Lived a miner, forty-niner,
     And his daughter Clementine.

     CHORUS
     Oh my darling, oh my darling,
     Oh my darling Clementine
     You are lost and gone forever,
     Oh my darling, Clementine.

     Light she was, and like a fairy,
     And her shoes were number nine,
     Herring boxes without topses,
     Sandals were for Clementine. [Chorus]

     Drove she ducklings to the water
     Every morning just at nine,
     Hit her foot against a splinter,
     Fell into the foaming brine. [Chorus]

     Ruby lips above the water,
     Blowing bubbles soft and fine,
     But alas, I was no swimmer,
     So I lost my Clementine. [Chorus]

     In a churchyard near the canyon,
     Where the myrtle doth entwine,
     There grow roses and other posies,
     Fertilized by Clementine. [Chorus]

     Then, the miner, forty-niner,
     Soon began to peak and pine,
     Though in life I used to hug her,
     Now she's dead I draw the line. [Chorus]

     In my dreams she still doth haunt me,
     Robed in garments soaked with brine,
     Though in life I used to hug her,
    Now she's dead I draw the line. [Chorus]

     Listen fellers, head the warning
     Of this tragic tale of mine,
     Artificial respiration
     Could have saved my Clementine. [Chorus]

     How I missed her, how I missed her,
     How I missed my Clementine,
     Till I kissed her little sister,
     And forgot my Clementine. [Chorus]




Grand Ol’ Flag
by George M. Cohan

You’re a grand old flag.
You’re a high-flying flag.
And forever in peace may you wave.

You’re the emblem of
the land I love,
the home of the free and the brave!

Every heart beats true
for the red, white, and blue.
Where there’s never a boast or brag!
But should old acquaintance be forgot,
Keep your eye on that
Grand Old Flag!
 




Kum ba yah

     Kum ba yah, my Lord, Kum ba yah,
     Kum ba yah, my Lord, Kum ba yah
     Kum ba yah, my Lord, Kum ba yah
     Oh Lord, Kum ba yah.

     People singing Lord, Kum ba yah,
     People singing Lord, Kum ba yah
     People singing Lord, Kum ba yah
     Oh Lord, Kum ba yah.

     We are happy Lord, Kum ba yah...

     Children playing Lord, Kum ba yah...

     Nations fighting Lord, Kum ba yah...

     Mothers weeping Lord, Kum ba yah...

     Families mourning Lord, Kum ba yah..
     .
     Why this fighting Lord, Kum ba yah...

     Peace in our time Lord, Kum ba yah...

     So we're praying Lord, Kum ba yah...
