Five Little Ducks

Five Little Ducks went out to play

Over the hills and far away

The mother duck cried, "quack quack quack quack!"

But only four little ducks came back

Four Little Ducks went out to play

Over the hills and far away

The mother duck cried, "quack quack quack quack!"

But only three little ducks came back

Three Little Ducks went out to play

Over the hills and far away

The mother duck cried, "quack quack quack quack!"

But only two little ducks came back

Two Little Ducks went out to play

Over the hills and far away

The mother duck cried, "quack quack quack quack!"

But only one little duck came back

One Little Duck went out to play

Over the hills and far away

The mother duck cried, "quack quack quack quack!"

But no little ducks came waddling back

No Little Ducks went out to play

Over the hills and far away

The father duck cried,

"QUACK QUACK QUACK QUACK!"

And five little ducks came waddling back!

Señor Don Gato

O Senor Don Gato was a cat
On a high red roof Don Gato sat
He went up to read a letter
Meow, meow, meow
Where the reading light was better
Meow, meow, meow
‘Twas a love-note for Don Gato

“I adore you,” wrote the lady cat
Who was fluffy white, so nice and fat
There was not a sweeter kitty
Meow, meow, meow
In the country or the city
Meow, meow, meow
And she said she’d wed Don Gato

Well Don Gato jumped so happily
He fell off the roof and broke his knee
Broke his ribs and all his whiskers
Meow, meow, meow
And his little solar plexus
Meow, meow, meow
“Ay Caramba! ” cried Don Gato

 

All the doctors came upon the run
Just to see if something could be done
And they held a consultation
Meow, meow, meow
About how to save their patient
Meow, meow, meow
Try to save Senor Don Gato

But in spite of everything they tried
Poor Senor Don Gato up and died
And it wasn’t very merry
Meow, meow, meow
Going to the cemetery
Meow, meow, meow
For the ending of Don Gato

As the funeral passed the market square
Such a smell of fish was in the air
Though the burial was slated
Meow, meow, meow
He became reanimated
Meow, meow, meow
He came back to life, Don Gato!

Sandwiches

by Bob King

 

Sandwiches are beautiful
Sandwiches are fine
I like sandwiches 

I eat them all the time
I eat them for my supper

And I eat them for my lunch
If I had a hundred sandwiches

I'd eat them all at once

At once!

I'm a roaming and a rambling

and wandering along
And if you care to listen 

I will sing a happy song
I will not ask a favor

and I will not ask a fee
But if you have a sandwich

Won't you give a bite to me?

Sandwiches are beautiful...

Once I went to England

Visiting the Queen
I swear she was the finest lady

That I'd ever seen
I told her she was beautiful

And could not ask for more
She handed me a sandwich
And she threw me out the door.

Sandwiches are beautiful...

A sandwich may be egg or cheese
Or even peanut butter
But they all taste so good to me
It doesn't even matter
Jam or ham or cucumber
Any kind will do
I like sandwiches
How about you?

 

Sandwiches are beautiful...
 

Billy Boy

Oh where have you been Billy Boy, Billy Boy?

Oh where have you been charming Billy?

I have  been to seek a wife 

She's the darling of my life

She's a young thing and cannot leave her mother

Did she bid you to come in Billy Boy, Billy Boy?

Did she bid you to come in charming Billy?

Yes she bade me to come in

There's a dimple on her chin

She's a young thing and cannot leave her mother

Can she bake a cherry pie Billy Boy, Billy Boy?

Can she bake a cherry pie charming Billy?

She can bake a cherry pie

In the twinkling of an eye

She's a young thing and cannot leave her mother

How old is she Billy Boy, Billy Boy?

How old is she charming Billy?

She's 3 x 6 and 4 x 7

28 and 11...

She's a young thing and cannot leave her mother

The Fox

Oh The Fox went out on a chilly night

And he prayed to the moon for to give him light

He had many a mile to go that night

Before he reached the town-o, town-o, town-o

He had many a mile to go that night

Before he reached the town-o

He ran till he came to the farmer's pen
Where the ducks and the geese were kept therein
He said a couple of you are gonna grease my chin
Before I leave this town-o, town-o, town-o
A couple of you are gonna grease my chin 

Before I leave this town-o

He grabbed the grey goose by the neck
And he threw a duck across his back 
He didn't mind the quack quack quack
And the legs all dangling down-o, down-o, down-o
He didn't mind the quack quack 
And the legs all dangling down-o

Old Mother Flipper Flopper jumped out of bed
She ran to the window and popped out her head,
Crying John, John, the great goose is gone
And the fox is on the town-o, town-o, town-o
John, John, the great goose is gone

And the fox is on the town-o

He ran till he came to his nice warm den
And there were the little ones, eight, nine, ten
Sayin' Daddy, Daddy, better go back again
For it must be a mighty fine town-o, town-o, town-o
Daddy, Daddy, go back again

For it must be a mighty fine town-o

The fox and his wife, without any strife
Cut up the goose with a fork and a knife
They never had such a supper in their life
And the little ones chewed on the bones-o

Bones-o, bones-o
They never had such a supper in their life
And the little ones chewed on the bones

I had a cat and the cat pleased me

The Austrian

Once an Austrian went yodeling

on a mountain so high

When he met with an avalanche

Interrupting his cry

Ohhhh-leeeeeee-yo...  

Ho dilly-ai-kee-kee-yo

Ho dilly-ai-koo-koo...        rumble rumble!

Ho dilly-ai-kee-kee-yo

Ho dilly-ai-koo-koo ...       rumble rumble! 

  Ho dilly-ai-kee-kee-yo

Ho dilly-ai-koo-koo...        rumble rumble!

Ho dilly-ai-kee-kee-yo-ho

Once an Austrian went yodeling

on a mountain so high

When he met with a... 

     skiier...  swish swish!

     Saint Bernard...  woof! woof!

     grizzly bear...   roar!    

     milking maid... squish squish!

     pretty girl...     kiss kiss!

Among the Fields

Among the Fields

Of gold and green

A young boy's head

Is plainly seen

A-hoya hoya hoya ha

Swiftly flowing water

A-hoya hoya hoya ha

Swiftly flowing water

 

The Cat Came Back

by Harry S. Miller

Old Farmer Johnson had troubles of his own
He had a yellow cat who wouldn't leave his home
He tried and he tried to give the cat away
He gave it to a man going far, far away

But the cat came back the very next day
The cat came back. We thought he was a gonner
But the cat came back 

He just wouldn't stay away 

Meow...

So he gave him to a man with a long white beard

He said put him in your sleigh and take him far away from here

To the cold North Pole with the wind and the snow

The last thing he heard was ho ho ho

But the cat came back...

So once a crazy scientist took the yellow cat

And he put him in a time machine with one small rat

He sent them back a million years to the dinosaur and ape

We're gone for good! the ratty cried

There's no possible escape!

But the cat came back...

Oh kitty oh kitty quit treating' me mean

You're the meanest old kitty that I've ever seen

You eat me out of house and home

It's time you packed your bags and go cat go

Hit the road, cat

Dontcha come back

no more no more no more no more

Hit the road, cat

Dontcha come back no more

Meow...

Dona

On a wagon bound for market

There's a calf with a mournful eye

High above him flies a swallow

Winging swiftly through the sky

All the winds are laughing

They laugh with all their might

Laughed and laughed the whole day through

And half the summer's night

Dona dona, dona dona dona dona

Dona dona, doan

Dona dona, dona dona 

Dona dona, dona doan

Stop complaining said the farmer

Who told you a calf to be?

Why can't you have wings to fly with

Like the swallow so wild and free?

All the winds...

Calves are easily bound and slaughtered

Never knowing the reason why

But for he who treasures freedom

Like the swallow must learn to fly

All the winds...

Froggy Went A'Courtin'

Froggy went a-courtin' and he did ride 

With a sword and pistol by his side

He rode up to Miss Mousie's door, M-hm

He rode up to Miss Mousie's door
Where he had been many times before

He took Miss Mouse upon his knee, M-hm
He took Miss Mouse upon his knee, M-hm

He took Miss Mouse upon his knee

And he said, "Missy Mouse won't you marry me?"

"Without my Uncle Rat's consent, M-mmm
Without my Uncle Rat's consent M-mmmm

Without my Uncle Rat's consent

There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly

There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly

I don't know why she swallowed that fly

Hope she don't die

There was an old lady who swallowed a spider

That wiggled and wriggled and jiggled inside her

She swallowed the spider to catch the fly 

I don't know why she swallowed that fly

Hope she don't die

 

There was an old lady who swallowed a bird

Haven't you heard?  She swallowed a bird!

She swallowed the bird to catch the spider 

That wiggled and wriggled and jiggled inside her

​She swallowed the spider to catch the fly 

I don't know why she swallowed that fly

Hope she don't die

 

There was an old lady who swallowed a cat

Imagine that!  She swallowed a cat!

She swallowed the cat to catch the bird

​She swallowed the bird to catch the spider 

That wiggled and wriggled and jiggled inside her

​She swallowed the spider to catch the fly 

I don't know why she swallowed that fly

Hope she don't die

There was an old lady who swallowed a dog

What a hog!  She swallowed a dog!

She swallowed the dog to catch the cat

She swallowed the cat to catch the bird

​She swallowed the bird to catch the spider 

That wiggled and wriggled and jiggled inside her

​She swallowed the spider to catch the fly 

I don't know why she swallowed that fly

Hope she don't die

There was an old lady who swallowed a goat

She opened her throat and swallowed a goat

She swallowed the goat to catch the dog

She swallowed the dog to catch the cat

She swallowed the cat to catch the bird

​She swallowed the bird to catch the spider 

That wiggled and wriggled and jiggled inside her

​She swallowed the spider to catch the fly 

I don't know why she swallowed that fly

Hope she don't die

There was an old lady who swallowed a cow

I don't know how but she swallowed a cow

She swallowed the cow to catch the goat

She swallowed the goat to catch the dog

She swallowed the dog to catch the cat

She swallowed the cat to catch the bird

​She swallowed the bird to catch the spider 

That wiggled and wriggled and jiggled inside her

​She swallowed the spider to catch the fly 

I don't know why she swallowed that fly

Hope she don't die

There was an old lady who swallowed a horse

She died, of course

Jabberwockyby Lewis Carroll

’Twas brillig, and the slithy toves 

      Did gyre and gimble in the wabe: 

All mimsy were the borogoves, 

      And the mome raths outgrabe. 

 

“Beware the Jabberwock, my son! 

      The jaws that bite, the claws that catch! 

Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun 

      The frumious Bandersnatch!” 

 

He took his vorpal sword in hand; 

      Long time the manxome foe he sought— 

So rested he by the Tumtum tree 

      And stood awhile in thought. 

 

And, as in uffish thought he stood, 

      The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame, 

Came whiffling through the tulgey wood, 

      And burbled as it came! 

 

One, two! One, two! And through and through 

      The vorpal blade went snicker-snack! 

He left it dead, and with its head 

      He went galumphing back. 

 

“And hast thou slain the Jabberwock? 

      Come to my arms, my beamish boy! 

O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!” 

      He chortled in his joy. 

 

’Twas brillig, and the slithy toves 

      Did gyre and gimble in the wabe: 

All mimsy were the borogoves, 

      And the mome raths outgrabe.
