One Fat Hen (repeat after me)

This is a repeat after me song
Are you ready?
Al right!
Here we go!
One fat hen
And a couple of ducks
Three baby brown bears
Four rabit running hares
Five fat figgity froggies
Six simple Simon selling salt in Siam
Seven slimey sailors sippin' sleuce
Eight elongated elephants being elevated in an elevator
Nine nasty nosed nibbly "O"s nibbeling on nine nasty nosed nibbly oughts
Ten two-tone two-ton transcontinental trucks, with trailers, traveling from Talahassie Tennessee to Tyler Texas

(the challenge is for anyone to say it all in one breath...two times...three...)


One Hen (repeat after me)

This is a repeat after me song
Are you ready?
Al right!
Here we go!
One hen
Two ducks
Three squawking geese
Four limerick oysters
Five corpulent porpoises
Six pairs of Don Alverso's tweezers
Seven thousand Macedonians in full dress battle array
Eight brass monkeys from the ancient sacred crypts of Egypt
Nine apathetic, sympathetic, diabetic old men on roller skates with a marked propensity towards procrastination and sloth
Ten Conical, spherical, diabolical denizens of the deep who haul, stall around the corner of the quo, of the quay, of the quivey all at the same time!


One Man's Hands

One man's hands can't build a world of love,
Two men's hands can't build a world of love,
But if two and two and fifty make a million,
We'll see that day come round.
We'll see that day come round.

One man's strength can't turn the world around, ...

One man's voice can't sing in harmony, ...

One man's eyes can't see the way ahead, ...

One man's hands can't build a world of love, ...


One Tin Soldier

1. Listen, children, to a story
That was written long ago
'Bout a kingdom on a mountain
And the valley folk below.
On the mountain was a treasure
Buried deep be neath a stone,
And the valley people swore
They'd have it for their very own.

CH: Go ahead and hate your neighbor;
Go ahead and cheat a friend.
Do it in the hame of heaven;
Justify it in the end.
There won't be any trumpets blowin'
Come the judgement day.
On the bloody morning after ...
One tin soldier rides away.

2. 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.
"With our brother we will share
All the secrets of the mountain,
all the riches buried there."

3. Now the valley cried with anger,
"Mount your horses, draw your sword;"
And they killed the mountain people,
so they won their just reward.
Now they stood beside the treasure
on the mountain side, dark and red,
Turned the stone and looked beneath in.
"Peace on earth" was all it said.


On My Honor

On my Honor, I'll do my best, to do my duty, to God.
On my honor, I'll do my best, to serve my country, as I may.
On my honor, I'll do my best, to do my Good Turn, each day.
To keep my both strengthened, and keep my mind awakened,
To follow paths of righteousness;
On my honor, I'll do my best.


Oooie - Gooie

Oooie - Gooie was a worm,
A mighty worm was he,
He climbed upon the railroad tracks,
A train he did not see ---
Oooie - Gooie was a worm (repeat)


Our Paddles Clean and Bright

This song should be accompanied by an image in your mindís eye, and the image is this, itís night time, thereís a full moon out, you are sitting on the bank of a wide smooth river with tall pine trees on the banks, two Indians are paddling their canoe down the river, when they are first visible far up river you can only barely hear them, and so you will sing very softly, as they go by you can hear them best, and so you will sing regular, then, as they continue down river and fade from sight, you will sing softly...

Our paddles clean and bright,
flashing like silver,
fat as the wild goose flies,
dip dip and swing and back.


Oh! Susanna

1. I've come from Alabama with a banjo on my knee,
I'm going to Louisanna, My true love for to see,
It rained all night, the day I left,
The weather it was dry.
The sun so hot, I froze to death,
Susanna don't you cry.

CH: Oh, Susanna, Oh don't you cry for me.
I come from Alabama with a banjo on my knee.

2. I had a dream, the other night, when everything was still;
I thought I saw Susanns, a-coming down the hill.
The buckwheat cake was in her mouth,
The tears were in her eyes;
Said I, "I'm coming from the South,
Susanna don't you cry."

3. I soon will be in New Orleans, and then I'll look around;
And when I find Susanna, I'll fall upon the ground,
But if I do not find her,
Oh then I'll surely die;
And when I'm dead and burried,
Susanna don't you cry.


On Top of Old Smokey

1. On top of Old Smoky
All covered with snow,
I lost my true lover
From courting too slow.

2. Now, courting is a pleasure
And parting is grief,
And a flase-hearted lover
Is worse than a thief.

3. Say, a thief will just rob you
And take what you have,
But a flase-hearted lover
Will lead you to the grave.

4. And the grave will decay you
And turn you to dust;
Not one boy in a hundred
A poor girl can trust.

5. They'll hug you and kiss you
And tell you more lies
Than the crossties on the railroad
Or stars in the sky.

6. So, caome all you young maidens
And listen to me,
Never place your affection
On a green willow tree.

7. For the leaves they will wither,
And the roots they will die,
you'll all be forsaken
And never know why.

8. On top of Old Smoky
All covered with snow,
I lost my true lover
From courting too slow.


One Dark Night

One dark night when we were all in ben,
Missus O'Leary left the lantern in the shed,
And when the cow kicked it over,
She winked her eye and said,
"There'll be a hot time in the old town tonight."
Fire! Fire! Fire!

Ten nights dark when bed we all were in,
Old Leary Lady left the shed the latern in,
And when the kick cowed it over
She eyed her wink and said,
"There'll be a time hot in the town old night-to"
Ifer! Ifer! Ifer!


On Top of Spaghetti

(song, tune: On Top of Old Smokie)

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 it was tasty,
As tasty could be,
And then the next summer,
It grew to a tree.

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

So if you eat meatballs,
All covered with cheese,
Hold onto your meatballs,
Lest somebody sneese.
