We'll Meet Again

Let's say goodbye with a smile, dear,
Just for a while, dear, we must part.
Don't let the parting upset you,
I'll not forget you, sweetheart.

We'll meet again, don't know where, don't know when,
But I know we'll meet again, some sunny day.
Keep smiling through, just like you always do,
'Til the blue skies drive the dark clouds far away.

So will you please say hello to the folks that I know,
Tell them I won't be long.
They'll be happy to know that as you saw me go,
I was singing this song.

After the rain comes the rainbow,
You'll see the rain go, never fear,
We two can wait for tomorrow,
Goodbye to sorrow, my dear.

My Bonnie Lies over the Ocean

My Bonnie lies over the ocean
My Bonnie lies over the sea
My Bonnie lies over the ocean
Oh bring back my Bonnie to me

Bring back, bring back
Bring back my Bonnie to me, to me
Bring back, bring back
Bring back my Bonnie to me

Last night as I lay on my pillow
Last night as I lay on my bed
Last night as I lay on my pillow
I dreamed that my Bonnie was dead

Bring back, bring back
Bring back my Bonnie to me, to me
Bring back, bring back
Bring back my Bonnie to me

Oh blow ye the winds o'er the ocean
And blow ye the winds o'er the sea
Oh blow ye the winds o'er the ocean
And bring back my Bonnie to me

Bring back, bring back
Bring back my Bonnie to me, to me
Bring back, bring back
Bring back my Bonnie to me

The winds have blown over the ocean
The winds have blown over the sea
The winds have blown over the ocean
And brought back my Bonnie to me

Bring back, bring back
Bring back my Bonnie to me, to me
Bring back, bring back
Bring back my Bonnie to me

Ain't She Sweet

Ain't she sweet ?
See her walking down that street.
Yes I ask you very confidentially,
Ain't she sweet ?

Ain't she nice ?
Look her over once or twice.
Yes I ask you very confidentially,
Ain't she nice ?

Just cast an eye in her direction.
Oh me oh my, ain't that perfection ?

Oh I repeat,
Well, don't you think that's kinda neat ?
Yes I ask you very confidentially,
Ain't she sweet ?

If you knew Susie

If you knew Susie, like I know Susie
Oh ! Oh ! Oh ! What a girl
There's none so classy
As this fair lassie,
Oh ! Oh ! Holy Moses, what a chassis
We went riding, she didn't balk
Back from Yonkers
I'm the one that had to walk
If you knew Susie, Like I know Susie
Oh ! Oh ! What a girl !

If you knew Susie, like I know Susie
Oh ! Oh ! Oh ! What a girl
She wears long tresses
And nice tight dresses
Oh ! Oh !
What a future she possesses
Out in public
How she can yawn
In a parlour, you would think the war was on
If you knew Susie, like I know Susie
Oh ! Oh ! What a girl

Whispering

Whispering while you cuddle near me
Whispering so no one can hear me
Each little whisper seems to cheer me
I know its true dear....theres no one but you

Whispering why you'll never leave me
Whispering why you'll never grieve me
Whisper and say that you believe me
Whispering that I love you

Daisy

Daisy, Daisy,
Give me your answer do !
I'm half crazy,
All for the love of you !
It won't be a stylish marriage,
I can't afford a carriage
But you'll look sweet upon the seat
Of a bicycle made for two.

Cruising down the river

Cruising down the river on a Sunday afternoon
With one you love, the sun above
Waiting for the moon.
An old accordion playing a sentimental tune
Cruising down the river on a Sunday afternoon.

The birds above all sing of love
A gentle, sweet refrain.
The winds around all make a sound
Like softly falling rain.
The two of us together
We'll plan our honeymoon
Cruising down the river on a Sunday afternoon.

When Irish eyes

When Irish eyes are smiling,
Sure, 'tis like the morn in Spring.
In the lilt of Irish laughter
You can hear the angels sing.

When Irish hearts are happy,
All the world seems bright and gay.
And when Irish eyes are smiling,
Sure, they steal your heart away.

My Wild Irish Rose

My wild Irish Rose
The sweetest flower that grows
You may search everywhere
But none can compare
With my wild Irish Rose

My wild Irish Rose
The dearest flower that grows
And some day for my sake
She may let me take
The bloom from my wild Irish Rose

My wild Irish Rose
The dearest flower that grows
And some day for my sake
She may let me take
The bloom from my wild Irish Rose

You Are My Sunshine

You Are My Sunshine
My only sunshine.
You make me happy
When skies are grey.
You'll never know, dear,
How much I love you.
Please don't take my sunshine away

Around the world

Around the world I searched for you
I travelled on but hope was gone
to keep a rendez-vous

I knew sometime, some place, some how
you'd look at me, and I would see the smile
you're smiling now

it might have been in ...
or in New York, or in Paris, or even London town
no longer will I go all around the world
for I've found my world in you

Roll out the barrel

Roll out the barrel, we'll have a barrel of fun
Roll out the barrel, we've got the blues on the run
Zing boom tararrel, ring out a song of good cheer
Now's the time to roll the barrel, for the gang's all here

Tipperary

It's a long way to Tipperary,
It's a long way to go.
It's a long way to Tipperary
To the sweetest girl I know !
Goodbye Piccadilly,
Farewell Leicester Square !
It's a long long way to Tipperary,
But my heart's right there.

Stand by me

When the night has come
And the land is dark
And the moon is the only light we'll see
No I won't be afraid, no I won't be afraid
Just as long as you stand, stand by me

And darlin', darlin', stand by me, oh now now stand by me
Stand by me, stand by me

If the sky that we look upon
Should tumble and fall
And the mountains should crumble to the sea
I won't cry, I won't cry, no I won't shed a tear
Just as long as you stand, stand by me

And darlin', darlin', stand by me, oh stand by me
Stand by me, stand by me, stand by me-e, yeah

Whenever you're in trouble won't you stand by me, oh now now stand by me
Oh stand by me, stand by me, stand by me

Darlin', darlin', stand by me-e, stand by me
Oh stand by me, stand by me, stand by me

White cliffs of Dover

Therell be bluebirds over
The white cliffs of Dover
Tomorrow
Just you wait and see

Therell be love and laughter
And peace ever after
Tomorrow
When the world is free

The shepherd will tend his sheep
The valley will bloom again
And Jimmy will go to sleep
In his own little room again

Therell be bluebirds over
The white cliffs of Dover
Tomorrow
Just you wait and see

I'm in the mood for love

I'm in the mood for love
Simply because you're near me
Funny, but when you're near me
I'm in the mood for love
Heaven is in your eyes
Bright as the stars we're under
Oh, is it any wonder
That I'm in the mood for love ?
Why stop to think of whether
This little dream might fade ?
We've put our hearts together
Now we are one, I'm not afraid
And if there's a cloud above
If it should rain, we'll let it
But for tonight forget it
I'm in the mood for love

Love me tender

Love me tender,
Love me sweet,
Never let me go.
You have made my life complete,
And I love you so.

Love me tender,
Love me true,
All my dreams fulfilled.
For my darlin I love you,
And I always will.

When you're smiling

When you're smiling
When you're smiling
The whole world smiles with you

When you're laughing
Oh, when you're laughing
The sun comes shining through

But when you're crying
You bring on the rain
So stop your sighing
Be happy again
Keep on smiling
'cause when you're smiling
The whole world smiles with you

Now is the hour

Now is the hour when we must say goodbye.
Soon you'll be sailing far across the sea.
While you're away, oh, then, remember me.
When you return, you'll find me waiting here.

Vaya Con Dios

Now the hacienda's dark
The town is sleeping
Now the time has come to part
The time for weeping

Vaya con dios, my darling
Vaya con dios, my love

Now the village mission bells are softly ringing
If you listen with your heart
You'll hear them singing

Vaya con dios, my darling
Vaya con dios, my love

Wherever you may be, I'll be beside you
Although you're many million dreams away
Each night I'll say a pray'r
A pray'r to guide you
To hasten every lonely hour
Of every lonely day
Now the dawn is breaking through a gray tomorrow
But the memories we share are there to borrow

Vaya con dios, my darling
Vaya con dios, my love

[Musical Interlude]

Vaya con dios, my darling
Vaya con dios, my love

Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner

Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner,
That I love London so.
Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner
That I think of her wherever I go.
I get a funny feeling inside of me
Just walking up and down.
Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner
That I love London Town.

Oh give me a home

Oh, give me a home, where the buffalo roam,
Where the deer and the antelope play,
Where seldom is heard a discouraging word,
And the skies are not cloudy all day.

Home, home on the range,
Where the deer and the antelope play,
Where seldom is heard a discouraging word,
And the skies are not cloudy all day.

Tea for two

Picture you upon my knee
Just tea for two and two for tea
Just me for you and you for me alone
Nobody near us to see us or hear us
No friends or relations on weekend vacations
We won't have it known, dear
That we own a telephone, dear
Day will break and you'll awake
And start to bake a sugar cake
For me to take for all the boys to see
We will raise a family
A boy for you, a girl for me
Oh, can't you see how happy we would be

Mexicali rose

Mexicali Rose stop crying
I'll come back to you some sunny day.
Every night you'll know that I'll be pining
Every hour a year while I'm away.
Dry those big brown eyes and smile dear
Banish all those tears and please don't sigh.
Kiss me once again and hold me
Mexicali Rose, goodbye.

Are you lonesome tonight

Are you lonesome tonight
do you miss me tonight
Are you sorry we drifted apart
Does your memory stray to a bright sunny day
When I kissed you and called you sweetheart
Do the chairs in your parlor seem empty and bare
Do you gaze at your doorstep and picture me there
Is your heart filled with pain, shall I come back again
Tell me dear, are you lonesome tonight

Everybody loves somebody

Everybody loves somebody sometime
Everybody falls in love somehow
Something in your kiss just told me
That sometime is now

Everybody finds somebody someplace
There's no telling whre love may appear
Something in my heart keeps saying
My someplace is here

Everybody loves somebody sometime
And though my dreams were overdue
Your love made it all worth waiting
For someone like you

Red roses for a blue lady

I want some red roses for a blue lady
Mister florist take my order please
We had a silly quarrel the other day
I hope these pretty flowers chase her blues away

I want some red roses for a blue lady
Send them to the sweetest gal in town
And if they do the trick, I'll hurry back to pick
Your best white orchid for her wedding gown

Too young

They try to tell us were too young
Too young to really be in love
They say that loves a word
A word we've only heard
But can't begin to know the meaning of

And yet were not too young to know
This love will last though years may go
And then some day they may recall
We were not too young at all

Easter Parade

In your easter bonnet, with all the frills upon it,
Youll be the grandest lady in the easter parade.
Ill be all in clover and when they look you over,
Ill be the proudest fellow in the easter parade.
On the avenue, fifth avenue, the photographers will snap us,
And youll find that youre in the rotogravure.
Oh, I could write a sonnet about your easter bonnet,
And of the girl Im taking to the easter parade.

The Sheik of Araby

The Sheik of Araby, a sailor he used to be
was very surprised to see, our sixteen big MSI
as soon he asked to me, can I go with you to sea
I told him: Bien sur, oui, oui - You big Sheik of Araby

And there we sailed away, like we did every day,
There was a big big swell, the Sheik he was not well,
He hang over the side, his eyes open very wide,
He cried: is that an MSI, I'm going back to Araby.

Blueberry Hill

I found my thrill on blueberry hill
On blueberry hill when I found you
The moon stood still on blueberry hill
And lingered until my dreams came true

The wind in the willow played
Love's sweet melody
But all of those vows we made
Were never to be

Tho' we're apart, you're part of me still
For you were my thrill on blueberry hill

Misty

Look at me, I'm as helpless as a kitten up a tree;
And I feel like I'm clingin' to a cloud,
I can' t understand
I get misty, just holding your hand.
Walk my way,
And a thousand violins begin to play,
Or it might be the sound of your hello,
That music I hear,
I get misty, the moment you're near.
Can't you see that you're leading me on ?
And it's just what I want you to do,
Don't you notice how hopelessly I'm lost
That's why I'm following you.
On my own,
When I wander through this wonderland alone,
Never knowing my right foot from my left
My hat from my glove
I'm too misty, and too much in love.
Too misty,
And too much
In love.....

Danny Boy

Oh Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling
From glen to glen, and down the mountain side
The summer's gone, and all the flowers are dying
'Tis you, 'tis you must go and I must bide.
But come ye back when summer's in the meadow
Or when the valley's hushed and white with snow
'Tis I'll be here in sunshine or in shadow
Oh Danny boy, oh Danny boy, I love you so.

And if you come, when all the flowers are dying
And I am dead, as dead I well may be
You'll come and find the place where I am lying
And kneel and say an "Ave" there for me.

And I shall hear, tho' soft you tread above me
And all my dreams will warm and sweeter be
If you'll not fail to tell me that you love me
I'll simply sleep in peace until you come to me.

I'll simply sleep in peace until you come to me.

What a wonderful world

I see trees of green... red roses too
I see em bloom... for me and for you
And I think to myself... what a wonderful world.

I see skies of blue... clouds of white
Bright blessed days...dark sacred nights
And I think to myself... what a wonderful world.

The colors of a rainbow... so pretty ..in the sky
Are also on the faces.....of people ..going by
I see friends shaking hands.....sayin.. how do you do
Theyre really sayin......i love you.

I hear babies cry...... I watch them grow
Theyll learn much more.....than Ill never know
And I think to myself .....what a wonderful world

I'm getting married in the morning

I'm getting married in the mornin' !
Ding dong ! The bells are gonna chime.
Pull out the stopper !
Let's have a whopper !
But get me to the church on time !

I got ta be there in the mornin',
Spruced up and lookin' in me prime.
Girls, come and kiss me;
Show how you'll miss me.
But get me to the church on time !

If I am dancin', roll up the floor.
If I am whistlin', whewt me out the door !

For I'm gettin' married in the mornin'.
Ding dong ! The bells are gonna chime.
Kick up a rumpus, but don't lose the compass,
And get me to the church, get me to the church...

For God's sake, get me to the church on time !

Bye bye blackbird

Pack up all my care and woe,
Here I go,
Singing low,
Bye bye blackbird,
Where somebody waits for me,
Sugar's sweet, so is she,
Bye bye
Blackbird !

No one here can love or understand me,
Oh, what hard luck stories they all hand me,
Make my bed and light the light,
I'll be home late tonight,
Blackbird bye bye.

Strangers in the night

Strangers in the night exchanging glances
Wondring in the night
What were the chances wed be sharing love
Before the night was through.

Something in your eyes was so inviting,
Something in you smile was so exciting,
Something in my heart,
Told me I must have you.

Strangers in the night, two lonely people
We were strangers in the night
Up to the moment
When we said our first hello.
Little did we know
Love was just a glance away,
A warm embracing dance away and -

Ever since that night weve been together.
Lovers at first sight, in love forever.
It turned out so right,
For strangers in the night.

Singing in the rain

I'm singing in the rain
Just singing in the rain
What a glorious feelin'
I'm happy again
I'm laughing at clouds
So dark up above
The sun's in my heart
And I'm ready for love
Let the stormy clouds chase
Everyone from the place
Come on with the rain
I've a smile on my face
I walk down the lane
With a happy refrain
Just singin',
Singin' in the rain

San Francisco

I left my heart in San Francisco,
high on a hill it calls to me
To be where little cable cars
climb halfway to the stars.
The morning fog may chill the air,
I don't care.
My love waits there in San Francisco,
above the blue and windy sea,
When I come home to you, San Francisco,
your golden sun will shine for me.

My blue heaven

When whisper will call and evening is high,
I'll hurry to my blue heaven.
A turn to the right, a little white light,
Will lead me to my blue heaven.

I'll see a smiling face, a fireplace, a cozy room,
A little nest, that nestled where the roses bloom,
Just Mollie and me, and baby makes three,
We're happy in my blue heaven.

On the sunny side of the street

Grab your coat and get your hat
Leave your worries on the doorstep
Life can be so sweet
On the sunny side of the street

Cant you hear the pitter-pat
And that happy tune is your step
Life can be complete
On the sunny side of the street

If I never had a cent
Id be rich as rockefeller
Gold dust at my feet
On the sunny side of the street

Always

I'll be loving you always
with a love that's true, always
When the thing you've planned
needs my helping hand,
I will understand, always, always

Days may not be fair, always
Yeah but that's when I'll be there, always
Not for just an hour,
Not for just a day,
Not for just a year, but always.

Unforgettable

Unforgettable, that's what you are
Unforgettable though near or far
Like a song of love that clings to me
How the thought of you does things to me
Never before has someone been more

Unforgettable in every way
And forever more, that's how you'll stay
That's why, darling, it's incredible
That someone so unforgettable
Thinks that I am unforgettable too

New York

Start spreading the news, I'm leaving today
I want to be a part of it - New York, New York
These vagabond shoes, are longing to stray
Right through the very heart of it - New York, New York

I wanna wake up in a city, that doesn't sleep
And find I'm king of the hill - top of the heap

These little town blues, are melting away
I'll make a brand new start of it - in old New York
If I can make it there, I'll make it anywhere
It's up to you - New York, New York

New York, New York
I want to wake up in a city, that never sleeps
And find I'm a number one, top of the list, king of the hill
A number one

These little town blues, are melting away
I'm gonna make a brand new start of it - in old New York
And if I can make it there, I'm gonna make it anywhere

It's up to you - New York, New York, New York

Slow boat to China

I'd like to get you
On a slow boat to China,
All to myself alone.
To get you and keep you in my arms evermore,
Leave all your lovers
Weeping on the faraway shore.
Out on the briny
With the moon big and shinny,
Melting your heart of stone.
Darling, I'd love to get you
On a slow boat to China,
All to myself alone.

I can't give you anything but love

I can't give you anything but love, baby.
That's the only thing I've plenty of, baby.
Dream a while. Scheme a while.
We're sure to find,
Happiness, and I guess
all those things you've always pined for.

Gee I'd like to see you looking swell,
My little baby
Diamond bracelets Woolworth's doesn't sell, baby.
till that lucky day you know darn well, baby.
I can't give you anything but love.

Cockles and Mussels, or Molly Malone

In Dublin's Fair City
Where the girls are so pretty
I first set my eyes on sweet Molly Malone
As she wheel'd her wheel barrow
Through streets broad and narrow
Crying cockles and mussels alive, alive o !

Chorus
Alive, alive o !, alive, alive o !
Crying cockles and mussels alive, alive o !

She was a fishmonger
But sure 'twas no wonder
For so were her father and mother before
And they each wheel'd their barrow
Through streets broad and narrow
Crying cockles and mussels alive, alive o !

Chorus

She died of a fever
And no one could save her
And that was the end of sweet Molly Malone
But her ghost wheels her barrow
Through streets broad and narrow
Crying cockles and mussels alive, alive o !

Chorus

The Wild Rover

I've been a wild rover for many's the year
and I've spent all my money on whiskey and beer.
But now I'm returning with gold in great store
and I never will play the wild rover no more

 

Ik ben een ruige zwerver geweest vele jaren lang
en ik gaf al mijn geld uit aan whisky en bier
Maar nu keer ik terug met goud in grote hoeveelheden
en ik zal nooit meer de ruige zwerver uithangen

And it's no, nay, never,
no, nay, never, no more
will I play the wild rover
no, never, no more

 

En 't is nee, nee nooit meer
nee, nee, nooit niet, nooit meer
zal ik de ruige zwerver uithangen
nee, nooit niet, nooit meer

I went into an ale-house I used to frequent
and I told the landlady my money was spent.
I asked her for credit, she answered me nay,
a custom like yours I can have any day

 

Ik ging naar de kroeg, waar ik vroeger vaak kwam
en vertelde de kroegbazin dat al mijn geld op was
Ik vroeg haar krediet, maar ze antwoorde nee
een klant als jij kan ik elke dag wel krijgen

And it's no, nay, never,
no, nay, never, no more
will I play the wild rover
no, never, no more

 

En 't is nee, nee nooit meer
nee, nee, nooit niet, nooit meer
zal ik de ruige zwerver uithangen
nee, nooit niet, nooit meer

I took from my pocket ten sovereigns bright
and the landlady's eyes opened wide with delight.
She said I'd have whiskey and wines of the best
and the words that she told me were only in jest.

 

Ik nam uit mijn zak tien blinkende goudstukken
en de kroegsbazin haar ogen openden wijd van verrukking
Ze zij dat ik de beste whiskey en wijnen zou krijgen
en de woorden die ze sprak waren slechts scherts

And it's no, nay, never,
no, nay, never, no more
will I play the wild rover
no, never, no more

 

En 't is nee, nee nooit meer
nee, nee, nooit niet, nooit meer
zal ik de ruige zwerver uithangen
nee, nooit niet, nooit meer

I'll go home to my parents, confess what I've done,
and I'll ask them to pardon their prodigal son.
And when they've caressed me as oft' times before
then I never will play the wild rover no more

 

Ik zal naar huis gaan naar mijn ouders, bekennen wat ik gedaan heb
en ik zal ze vragen hun verkwistende zoon te vergeven
En als ze mij geknuffeld hebben zoals ze zo vaak deden
dan zal ik nooit meer de ruige zwerver uithangen

Drunken sailor (2)

What shall we do with the drunken sailor
What shall we do with the drunken sailor
What shall we do with the drunken sailor
Early in the morning.

Refrein

Hooray and up she rises (3x)
Early in the morning.

Put him in the long-boat until he's sober

Pull out the plug and wet him all over

Put him in the scuppers with a hose-pipe on him

Heave him by the leg in a running bowling

Tie him to the taffrail when she's yard-arm under

Put him in the bed with the captains daughter

Shave his belly with a rusty rasor.

Yo Ho Ho And A Bottle Of Rum

Fifteen men on a dead man's chest
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum
Drink and the devil had done for the rest
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum.
The mate was fixed by the bosun's pike
The bosun brained with a marlinspike
And cookey's throat was marked belike
It had been gripped by fingers ten;
And there they lay, all good dead men
Like break o'day in a boozing ken.
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum.

Fifteen men of the whole ship's list
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum !
Dead and be damned and the rest gone whist !
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum !
The skipper lay with his nob in gore
Where the scullion's axe his cheek had shore
And the scullion he was stabbed times four
And there they lay, and the soggy skies
Dripped down in up-staring eyes
In murk sunset and foul sunrise
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum.

Fifteen men of 'em stiff and stark
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum !
Ten of the crew had the murder mark !
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum !
Twas a cutlass swipe or an ounce of lead
Or a yawing hole in a battered head
And the scuppers' glut with a rotting red
And there they lay, aye, damn my eyes
Looking up at paradise
All souls bound just contrariwise
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum.

Fifteen men of 'em good and true
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum !
Ev'ry man jack could ha' sailed with Old Pew,
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum !
There was chest on chest of Spanish gold
With a ton of plate in the middle hold
And the cabins riot of stuff untold,
And they lay there that took the plum
With sightless glare and their lips struck dumb
While we shared all by the rule of thumb,
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum !

More was seen through a sternlight screen...
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum
Chartings undoubt where a woman had been
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum.
'Twas a flimsy shift on a bunker cot
With a dirk slit sheer through the bosom spot
And the lace stiff dry in a purplish blot
Oh was she wench or some shudderin' maid
That dared the knife and took the blade
By God ! she had stuff for a plucky jade
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum.

Fifteen men on a dead man's chest
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum
Drink and the devil had done for the rest
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum.
We wrapped 'em all in a mains'l tight
With twice ten turns of a hawser's bight
And we heaved 'em over and out of sight,
With a Yo-Heave-Ho ! and a fare-you-well
And a sudden plunge in the sullen swell
Ten fathoms deep on the road to hell,
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum !

Big Strong Man / My Brother Sylvest

Have you heard about the big strong man ?
He lived in a caravan.
Have you heard about the Jeffrey Johnson fight ?
Oh, Lord what a hell of a fight.
You can take all of the heavyweights you've got.
We've got a lad that can beat the whole lot.
He used to ring bells in the belfry,
Now he's gonna fight Jack Dempsey.

That was my brother Sylvest'
What's he got ?
A row of forty medals on his chest
big chest !
He killed fifty bad men in the west; he knows no rest.
Think of a man, hells' fire, don't push, just shove,
Plenty of room for you and me.
He's got an arm like a leg
a ladies' leg !
And a punch that would sink a battleship
big ship !
It takes all of the Army and the Navy to put the wind up Sylvest'.

Now, he thought he'd take a trip to Italy.
He thought that he'd go by sea.
He dove off the harbor in New York,
And swam like a great big shark.
He saw the Lusitania in distress.
He put the Lusitania on his chest.
He drank all of the water in the sea,
And he walked all the way to Italy.

That was my brother Sylvest'
What's he got ?
A row of forty medals on his chest
big chest !
He killed fifty bad men in the west; he knows no rest.
Think of a man, hells' fire, don't push, just shove,
Plenty of room for you and me.
He's got an arm like a leg
a ladies' leg !
And a punch that would sink a battleship
big ship !
It takes all of the Army and the Navy to put the wind up Sylvest'.

He thought he take a trip to old Japan.
They turned out a big brass band.
You can take all of the instruments you've got,
We got a lad that can play the whole lot.
And the old church bells will ring
Hells bells !
The old church choir will sing
Hells fire !
They all turned out to say farewell to my big brother Sylvest'.

God Save Ireland

God save Ireland, said the heroes
God save Ireland, said they all
Whether on the scaffold high
Or the battlefield we die
Oh, what matter when for Erin dear we fall

High upon the gallows tree swung the noble hearted three
By the vengeful tyrant stricken in their bloom
But they met him face to face with the courage of their race
And they went with souls undaunted to their doom

God save Ireland, said the heroes
God save Ireland, said they all
Whether on the scaffold high
Or the battlefield we die
Oh, what matter when for Erin dear we fall

Climbed they up the rugged stair, rang their voices out in prayer
Then with England's fatal cord around them cast
Close beside the gallows tree kissed like brothers lovingly
True to home and faith and freedom to the last

God save Ireland, said the heroes
God save Ireland, said they all
Whether on the scaffold high
Or the battlefield we die
Oh, what matter when for Erin dear we fall

Never till the latest day shall the memory pass away
Of the gallant lives thus given for our land
But on the cause must go, amidst joy and weal and woe
Till we make our Isle a nation free and grand

God save Ireland, said the heroes
God save Ireland, said they all
Whether on the scaffold high
Or the battlefield we die
Oh, what matter when for Erin dear we fall

Blowing in the wind

How many roads must a man walk down
Before they call him a man
How many seas must white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand
How many times must the cannonballs fly
Before they're for ever banned.

Refrein

The answer my friend
is blowing'in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind.

How many times must a man look up
Before he can see the sky
How many ears must one have
Before he can hear people cry
How many deaths will it take till he know
That too many people had died.

How many years can a mountain exist
Before he is washed to the sea
How many years can some people exist
Before they're allowed to be free
How many times can a man turn his head
And pretend that he just doesn't see.

Clementine

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

Refrain

Oh my darling, oh my darling
Oh my darling Clementine
Thou are lost and gone forever
Dreadful sorry, Clementine.

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

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

In a corner of the churchyard
Where the myrtle boughs entwine
Grow the roses in their posies
Fertilized by Clementine.

Then the miner, forty-nine
Soon began to peak and pine
Through he oughter jine his daughter
Now he's with his Clementine.

In my dreams she still doth haunt me
Robed in garments, soaked in brine
Through in life i used to hug her
Now she's dead I'll draw the line.

How i missed her, how i missed her
How i missed my Clementine
But i kissed her little sister
And forgot my Clementine.

Donna donna

On a wagon bound for market
There's a calf with a mourn full eye
High above him, there's a swallow
Winging swiftly through the sky.

Refrain

How the winds are laughing
They laugh with all their mind
Love and laugh the whole day through
And half the summers night
Donna donna donna donna
Donna donna donna donna (2x)

Stop complaining said the farmer
Who told you it had to be
Why can't you have wings to fly with
Like the swallow so proud anf free.

Calf's are easily bound and slaughtered
Never knowing' the reason why
Why can't you have wings to fly with
Like the swallow you've learned to fly.

Home on the range

Oh, give me home
Where the buffalo roam
Where the deer and the antilope play
Where seldom is heard
A discouraging word
And the skies are not cloudy all day.

Chorus

Home, home on the range
Where the deer and the antilope play
Where seldom is heard
A discouraging word
And the skies are not cloudy all day.

Oh give me a land
Where the bright diamond sand
Flows leisurely down the stream
Where the graceful, white swan
Goes gliding along
Like a maid in a heavenly dream.

Oh air is so pure
The zephyrs so free
The breezes so balmy and bright
That i would not exchange
My home on the range
For all the cities so bright.

John Brown

John brown's body lies a mouldr'ing in the grave (3x)
But his soul is marching on.

Keerzang

Glory ! glory ! Hallelujah ! (3x)
His soul is marching on.

He' gone to be a soldier in the army of the lord
His soul is marching on.

John brown died that the slave might be free,
But his soul goes marching on.

The stars of heaven are looking kindly down ;
On the grave of old john brown.

Oh, Susanna

I come from Alabama
With my banjo on my knee
I'm going to Louisiana,
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

Oh, Susanna,
Oh don't you cry for me
For I come from Alabama
With my banjo on my knee

I had a dream the other night
When everything was still
I thought I saw Susanna
A-coming down the hill

The buckwheat cake
Was in her mouth
The tear was
In her eye
Says I, I'm coming from the south
Susanna, don't you cry

Oh, Susanna,
Oh don't you cry for me
For I come from Alabama
With my banjo on my knee

Oh when the Saints

We are trav'ling in the footsteps
Of those who've gone before,
And we'll all be reunited,
On a new and sunlit shore,

Oh, when the saints go marching in
Oh, when the saints go marching in
Lord, how I want to be in that number
When the saints go marching in

And when the sun refuse to shine
And when the sun refuse to shine
Lord, how I want to be in that number
When the sun refuse to shine

And when the moon turns red with blood
And when the moon turns red with blood
Lord, how I want to be in that number
When the moon turns red with blood

Oh, when the trumpet sounds its call
Oh, when the trumpet sounds its call
Lord, how I want to be in that number
When the trumpet sounds its call

Some say this world of trouble,
Is the only one we need,
But I'm waiting for that morning,
When the new world is revealed.

Oh When the new world is revealed
Oh When the new world is revealed
Lord, how I want to be in that number
When the new world is revealed

Oh, when the saints go marching in
Oh, when the saints go marching in
Lord, how I want to be in that number
When the saints go marching in

Red River Valley

From this valley they say you are going
We will miss you bright eyes and sweet smile
For they say you are taking the sun-shine
That brightens our pathway a while

Won't you think of the valley you're leaving
Oh, how lonely, how sad it will be
Oh, think of the fond heart you're breaking
And the grief you are coming me to see.

Come and sit by my side if you love me
Do not hasten to bid me adieu
But remember the red river valley
And the one that has loved you so true.

Won't you think of the valley you're leaving
Oh, how lonely, how sad it will be
Oh, think of the fond heart you're breaking
And the grief you are coming me to see.

As you to your home by the ocean
May you never forget those sweet hours,
That we spent in red river valley
And the love we exchanged mod the flowers.

Swing low sweet chariot

I look'd over jordan, and what did i see
Coming for to carry me home !
A band of angels coming after me
Coming for to carry me home.

Refrain

Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home
Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home

If you get there before i do
Coming for to carry me home !
Tell all my friends i'm coming too
Coming for to carry me home.

The brightest day that ever i saw
When jesus washed my sins away

I'm sometimes up and sometimes down
But still my soul feels heavenly bound.

Tom Dooley

Hang down your head, Tom Dooley
Hang down your head and cry
Hang down your head, Tom Dooley
Poor boy, you're bound to die
I met her on the mountain
There I took her life
Met her on the mountain
Stabbed her with my knife

Hang down your head, Tom Dooley
Hang down your head and cry
Hang down your head, Tom Dooley
Poor boy, you're bound to die

This time tomorrow
Reckon where I'll be
Hadn't a-been for Grayson
I'd a-been in Tennessee

Hang down your head, Tom Dooley
Hang down your head and cry
Hang down your head, Tom Dooley
Poor boy, you're bound to die

Hang down your head, Tom Dooley
Hang down your head and cry
Hang down your head, Tom Dooley
Poor boy, you're bound to die

This time tomorrow
Reckon where I'll be
Down in some lonesome valley
Hangin' from a white oak tree

Hang down your head, Tom Dooley
Hang down your head and cry
Hang down your head, Tom Dooley
Poor boy, you're bound to die

Hang down your head, Tom Dooley
Hang down your head and cry
Hang down your head, Tom Dooley
Poor boy, you're bound to die

Poor boy, you're bound to die
Poor boy you're bound to die
Poor boy, you're bound to die...

We shall overcome

We shall overcome, we shall overcome
We shall overcome some day
Oh, deep in my heart, i do believe
We shall overcome some day.

We'll walk hand in hand (2x)
We'll walk hand in hand some day
Oh deep in my heart, i do believe
We shall overcome some day.

We shall live in peace (2x)
We shall live in peace some day
Oh, deep in my heart, i do believe
We shall overcome some day.

The whole world around (2x)
The whole world around some day
Oh, deep in my heart, i do believe
We shall overcome some day.

When Johnny comes marching home

When Johnny comes marching home again
Hurrah ! hurray !
We'll give him a heartily welcome then
Hurrah ! hurrah !
The men will cheer, the boys will shout
The ladies they will all turn round
And we'll all feel gay when Johnny comes marching home.

The old church bells will peal with joy
Hurrah ! Hurrah !
To welcome our darling boy
Hurrah ! Hurrah !
The village lads and lasses say
With roses they will strew the way
And we'll all feel gay when Johnny comes marching home.

Get ready for the jubilee
Hurrah ! Hurrah !
We'll give the hero three times three
Hurrah ! Hurrah !
The laurel wreath is ready now
To places upon his royal brow
And we'll all feel gay when Johnny comes marching home.

Yankee Doodle

Yankee doodle came to town
upon a little pony
he stuck a feather in his cap
an called it macaroni.

Refrain

Yankee doodle, doodle doo
Yankee doodle dandy
All the lassies are so smart
And sweet as sugar candy.

Yankee doodle is a tune
it sounds so mighty handy
all the enemies run away
at Yankee doodle dandy.
