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
 
Chorus:
And it's no, nay, never,
no, nay, never, no more
will I play the wild rover
no, never, no more
 
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
Chorus
 
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.
Chorus
 
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
Chorus X2
 
Do Your Ears Hang Low?
Do Your Ears Hang Low?
Do your ears hang low?
Do they wobble to and fro?
Can you tie them in a knot?
Can you tie them in a bow?
Can you throw them over your shoulder
Like a continental soldier?
Do your ears hang low?

Do your ears hang high?
Do they reach up to the sky?
Do they droop when their wet?
Do they stiffen when they dry?
Can you semaphore your neighbour
With a minimum of labour?
Do your ears hang high?

Glory glory what a heck of a mess he made

They put him in a sardine tin and sent him home to mum…
They put him on the mantle piece for everyone to see…
They spread him on a slice of bread when the vicar came to tea…
The Vicar spread him on some toast and said what lovely jam…
 
Pink Pyjamas
I wear my pink pyjamas in the summer when it’s hot.
I wear my flannel nightie in the winter when it’s not.
And sometimes in the springtime and sometimes in the fall.
I jump right in between the sheets with nothing on at all.
 
Chorus:
Glory, glory, Hallelujah;
Glory, glory, what’s it to you.
Balmy breezes blowing through you,
With nothing on at all.

On Top Of A Pizza
On top of a pizza, all covered with cheese,
I lost my poor meatball, when somebody sneezed.
It rolled off the table and on to the floor.
And then my poor meatball rolled out of the door.
It rolled into the street And there it was smashed.
And now my poor meatball is a pile of hash.
So, when you eat pizza all covered with cheese,
Hold on to your meatball, whenever you sneeze.
 
The Cow Kicked Nelly
Oh, the cow kicked Nelly in the belly in the barn

A little bit louder and a little bit worse...
 
Whatever Will Be, Will Be
When I was just a little boy
I asked my mother: "What will I be?
Will I be pretty? Will I be rich?"
Here’s what she said to me:
"Que sera, sera, whatever will be, will be;
The future’s not ours to see.
Que sera, sera, whatever will be, will be.
Que sera, sera!"
 
Roadkill Stew (tune: Three Blind Mice)

Pull him out of bed with a running bowline.
Throw him in the lake with his pants on backwards.
Hit him in the face with a sopping towel.

Early in the evening.

Old skip was a mighty campin' man,
Old skip was brave and sure,
Six young scouts set out with him
On an easy three day tour,
 
The weather started getting rough.
There was wind and rain and frost.
If not for the knowledge of the fearless skip,
Those six scouts would be lost,
 
They then walked out,
on a frozen lake,
And nearly reached the middle
Oh help, for goodness sake!
 
Well, this was the end of the young scouts’ camp,
They'll be there for a very long time,
They broke right through the ice that day,
While trying to pitch a tent
 
The scouts went first and their gear went too
Old skip sank like the rest,
Though blue, they all looked comfortable
In their underwater nest.
 
No ropes, no lights, no torch or maps,
Not one necessity,
No hope for them as they fell through
They were unprepared as can be.
 
So listen to these words my friends.
Be sure to heed this rule.
A leader who is brave and bold
might also be a fool.
 
This Old Man
This old man, he played (one;)
He played nick-nack (on my drum),
With a nic-nack, paddy-wack,
Give the dog a bone;
This old man came rolling home.

... three ... on my knee
... four ... on my door
... five ... on my hide
... six ... on my sticks
... seven ... up in heaven
... eight ... on my gate

... ten ... over again

How many roads must a man walk down
Before you can call him a man?
Yes, and how many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand?
Yes, and how many times
Must the cannonball fly
Before they are forever banned?
 
Chorus:
The answer my friend is blowing in the wind,
The answer is blowing in the wind.
 
How many years must a mountain exist
Before it is washed to the sea?
Yes, and how many years must a people exist
Before they’re allowed to be free?
Yes, and how many times
Can a man turn his head
And pretend that he just doesn’t see?
Chorus
 
How many times must a man look up
Before he can see the sky?
Yes, and how many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry?
Yes and how many deaths will it take till he knows
That too many people have died

My grandmother gave me a brand-new toy.
Silver Bells on a string,
She told me it was

With both hands on

Slipped and had an awful fall.

But I held on to
My ding-a-ling-a-ling.
Chorus

Best little song you ever did have.
For those of you who will not sing,
You must be playing with
Your own ding-a-ling-a-ling.

Oh 'twas in the broad Atlantic, mid the equinoctial gale
When a young fellow fell overboard among the sharks and whales
And down he went as a streak of light, so quickly down went he
Until he came to a mermaid at the bottom of the deep blue sea

And Britons never, never, never shall be married
To a mermaid at the bottom of the deep blue sea

Go back to your messmates for the last time and tell them all from me
That you're married to a mermaid at the bottom of the deep blue sea
Chorus
 
We sent a boat to look for him expecting to find his corpse
When up he came with a bang and a shout and a voice sepulchrally hoarse

For I'm married to a mermaid at the bottom of the deep blue sea
Chorus
 
In my chest you'll find my half year's wage likewise a lock of hair
This locket from my neck you'll take and bear to my young wife dear
My carte de visite to my grandma take, tell her not to weep

of the deep blue sea"

One day, my boss said to me,
He said Joe, “are you busy?"
I said, "Yes".

Oh You'll never get to heaven (group repeat)
In a bottle of gin (group repeat)
Cause the lord don't let (group repeat)
No spirits in (group repeat)
(All sing together)
Oh you’ll never get to heaven in a bottle of gin
because the Lord wont let no spirits in,
Chorus
I ain't gonna grieve, my lord no more
I ain't gonna grieve my lord,
I ain't gonna grieve my lord,
I ain't gonna grieve, my lord no more.

(Other Verses)
On roller skates, cause you'll roll right past them pearly gates,
In a jumbo jet, cause the lord ain't built no run ways yet
In a girl guide’s bra, cause girl guide’s bra won't stretch that far
In a baked bin tin, cause a baked bin tin's got bake beans in
In a biscuit tin, cause the lord don't let no crummy ones in
In _____’s car, cause ______’s car won't get that far
In a portaloo, cause a portaloo is full of water?
On a girl guide’s knee, cause you never know where her hands might be
Sheet of glass, cause a sheet of glass will cut your bottom?
On a ping pong ball, cause a ping pong ball is far too small
On a motor bike, cause half way there you'll have to hike
In a limousine, cause the lord ain't got no gasoline
In a rocking chair, cause the lord don't want no rockers there
In a wicker chair, cause the lord don't want no baskets there
In a girl guides arms, cause the lord don't want no feminine charms
You'll never get to Heaven with a dog as a pet, cause the Lord ain't got no lamp posts yet!
If I get to heaven before you do, I’ll dig a hole and pull you through
This is the song that never ends
Yes it goes on and on my friends
Some people started singing it
not knowing what it was
And they'll continue singing it forever just because:
This is the song that never ends...

Everywhere we go
Everywhere we go
People always ask us
People always ask us
Who we are
Who we are
So we tell them
So we tell them
We are 3rd Washington
We are 3rd Washington
The mighty, mighty Washington
The mighty, mighty Washington
And if they don't hear us
Then we shout a little louder!
Last verse
And if they don’t hear us
Then they must be deaf

My Dead Dog Rover
I'm looking over my dead dog Rover
That I over-ran with the mower.
First leg is missing, the second is gone.
Third leg is scattered all over the lawn.
No need explaining the one remaining
Is lying on my neighbour’s roof.
I'm looking over my dead dog Rover
That I over-ran with the mower.
Once more!

Court of King Caractacus
Chorus:
The court of King Caractacus is just passing by,
The court of King Caractacus is just passing by,
The court of King Caractacus is just passing by,
The court of King Caractacus is just passing by,

The harem of the court of King Caractacus is just passing by (x4)
The ladies of the harem of the court of King Caractacus are just passing by (x4)
The boys who put the powder on the noses of the ladies of the harem of the court of King Caractacus are just passing by (x4)
The fascinating witches who sew scintillating stitches in the britches of the boys who put the powder on the noses of the faces of the ladies of the harem of the court of King Caractacus are just passing by (x4)

Over The Irish Sea
When I was one, I had just begun,
The day I went to sea,
I jumped aboard a pirate ship and the captain said to me,
We’re going this way, that way, forward backwards,
Over the Irish Sea,
A bottle of Rum to warm my Tum,
And that’s the life for me.
 
When I was two, I tied my shoe . . .
When I was three, I bumped my knee . . .
When I was four, I shut the door . . .
When I was five, I was still alive . . .
When I was six, I gathered sticks . . .
When I was seven, I was almost in heaven . . .
When I was eight, I closed the gate . . .
When I was nine, I was feeling fine . . .
When I was ten, I started over again . . .
Actions
“...jumped aboard...” {jump up}
“...the captain said...” {give salute}
“We’re going...” {bend at the waist; first left, right, forward, and back}
“...over the Irish Sea.” {make waves with hand}
“...bottle of rum...” {as if drinking}
“...to warm my tum...” {rub tummy}
“...that’s the life for me...” {slap knee and raise hand}
