Follow the Drinkin’ Gourd

Follow the drinkin’ gourd.

Follow the drinkin’ gourd.

For the old man is awaiting to carry you to freedom

If you follow the drinkin’ gourd

When the sun comes up and the first quail calls,

Follow the drinkin’ gourd.

For the old man is awaiting to carry you to freedom

If you follow the drinkin’ gourd

Follow the drinkin’ gourd.

Follow the drinkin’ gourd.

For the old man is awaiting to carry you to freedom

If you follow the drinkin’ gourd

Now the river bank will make a mighty good road

Dead trees, will show you the way

And the left foot, pegfoot, travelin’ on,

Just you follow the drinkin’ gourd.

Follow the drinkin’ gourd.

Follow the drinkin’ gourd.

For the old man is awaiting to carry you to freedom

If you follow the drinkin’ gourd

 

I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing

I’d like to teach the world to sing

In perfect harmony.

I’d like to hold it in my arms

And keep it company.

I’d like to build the world a home

And furnish it with love.

Grow apple trees and honey bees

and snow white turtle doves.

I’d like to see the world for once

All standing hand in hand,

And hear them echo through the hills

For peace throughout the land.

(2.3) That’s the song I hear (4.5 echo-That’s the song I hear)

(2.3) Let the world sing to today. (4.5 Let the world sing today.)

(together)A song of peace that echoes on and never goes away.

I’d like to teach the world to sing

In perfect harmony.

I’d like to hold it in my arms

And keep it company.

2.3 sings the chorus above while 4.5 sings:

That’s the song I hear

Let the world sing today

(together)

I’d like to hold it in my arms

And keep it company.

Over the Rainbow

Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high,

There’s a land that I heard of once in a lullaby

Somewhere over the rainbow skies are blue,

And the dreams that you dare to dream really to come true.

Someday I’ll wish upon a star and wake up

where the clouds are far behind me.

Where troubles melt like lemon drops,

Away above the chimney tops,

That’s where you’ll find me.

Somewhere over the rainbow bluebirds fly

Birds fly over the rainbow, why, then, oh why can’t I?

If happy little bluebirds fly beyond the rainbow,

Why, oh, why, can’t I?

Put a Little Love in Your Heart

Think of your fellow man, lend him a helping hand

Put a little love in your heart.

You see it’s getting late, oh, please don’t hesitate

Put a little love in your heart.

 

Chorus-

(2.3) And the world (4.5 echo)-and the world

(both) will be a better place

(2.3) And the world (4.5 echo)-and the world

(both) will be a better place

(2.3) For you- (4.5 echo)-for you

(2.3) and me- (4.5 echo)-and me

(2.3) just wait- (4.5 echo)- just wait

Another day goes by, and still the children cry,

Put a little love in your heart.

If you want the world to know, we won’t let hatred grow,

Put a little love in your heart. Chorus-

Take a good look around, and if you’re looking down,

Put a little love in your heart.

I hope when you decide, kindness will be your guide,

Put a little love in your heart. Chorus-

Last time- sing 3 times

Put a little love in your heart.

Sing me Another-4 part round

Sing me another before we depart

Sing to the praise of our musical art

Sing, sing, sing, sing

Do, do, do, so, so, so, so, so, so do.

 

Black Socks-3 part round

Black socks they never get dirty

The longer you wear ’em the stronger they get.

Sometimes I think I should wash ’em

But something keeps telling me

“Don’t wash ’em yet!” not yet, not yet, not yet.
