I'm A Nut

Lyrics: I'm an acorn, small and round Lying on the cold, cold ground Everyone walks over me That is why I'm cracked you see I'm a nut! I'm a nut! I'm a nut! I'm a nut! Called myself on the telephone You to hear my golden tone Asked me out for a little date Picked me up about half past eight I'm an acorn, small and round Lying on the cold, cold ground Everyone walks over me That is why I'm cracked you see I'm a nut! (Click, click with tongue) I'm a nut! (Click, click with tongue) I'm a nut! (Click, click with tongue) Called myself on the telephone Just to hear my golden tone Asked me out for a little date Picked me up about half past eight I'm a nut! (Click, click with tongue) I'm a nut! (Click, click with tongue) I'm a nut! (Click, click with tongue) Took myself to the movie show Stayed too late and said "Let's go" Took my hand and led me out Drove me home and gave a shout! I'm a nut! (Click, click with tongue) I'm a nut! (Click, click with tongue) I'm a nut! (Click, click with tongue) Author Unknown

Here We Go Loopty-Loo

Lyrics:

Here we go loopty loo
Here we go loopty li
Here we go loopty loo
All on a Saturday night

Here we go way down low
Here we go way up high
Here we go way down low
We really know how to fly

Here we go round and round
Here we go fast and slow
Here we go round and round
Oh what a great way to go

Here we go up and down
Here we sit side by side
Here we go up and down
Oh what a wonderful ride

Here we go loopty loo
Here we go loopty li
Here we go loopty loo
All on a Saturday night
All on a Saturday night
All on a Saturday night

" The Diet Song "

Lyrics:

Breakfast, black coffee, one slice of dry toast
No butter, no jelly, no jam
Lunch, just some lettuce, two celery stalks
No booze, no potatoes, no ham.

Dinner, one chicken wing, broiled not fried
No gravy, no biscuits, no pie
And this dietin', dietin', dietin', dietin'
Sure is a rough way to die.

So pass me a carrot stick, peel me a prune
A glass of skim milk and that's all
Turn off the TV for the Big Mac commercial
It's drivin' me right up the wall.

And I'm thinkin' of french fries, sausage and waffles
Spaghetti and cookies and cake
And each night I'm dreamin' of chocolate ice cream.
And I'm starvin' to death when I wake.

--- Instrumental ---

Supper, two pieces of cauliflower, raw
Some beefsteak the size of a nail
One sliced tomato, a small dab of slaw
I swear I ate better in jail.

Stop eatin' that pizza right under my nose
Girl that's the least you can do
Put down that candy bar while I'm singin'
I'm starvin' my pants off for you.

You're fixin' the kids all those creamed mashed potatoes
But it's bouillon and water for me
Hey, you got a lock on the refrigerator
Lord knows where you're hidin' the key.

While I'm starvin' for food late at night
I'm starvin' for lovin' from you
But you say that when I can see my own dick
You'll be glad to look at it too.

So pass me a carrot stick, peel me a prune
A glass of skim milk and that's all
You and Jane Fonda and old Richard Simmons
Are drivin' me right off the wall.

Now when I am dead with the insurance paid
You'll look down at me and you'll grin
You'll say, well the boy tried and he suffered and died
But don't he look good when he's thin? oh my.

And this dietin', dietin', dietin', dietin'
Sure is a rough way to die...

Running Bear

Lyrics:

Songwriters: RICHARDSON, J. P.

On the bank of the river stood Running Bear, young Indian brave
On the other side of the river stood his lovely Indian maid
Little White Dove was her name, such a lovely sight to see
But their tribes fought with each other, so their love could never be

Running Bear loved Little White Dove
With a love big as the sky
Running Bear loved Little White Dove
With a love that couldn't die

He couldn't swim the raging river 'cause the river was too wide
He couldn't reach the Little White Dove waiting on the other side
In the moonlight he could see her throwing kisses 'cross the waves
Her little heart was beating faster waiting for her Indian brave

Running Bear loved Little White Dove
With a love big as the sky
Running Bear loved Little White Dove
With a love that couldn't die

Running Bear dove in the water, Little White Dove did the same
And they swam out to each other through the swirling stream they came
As their hands touched and their lips met, the raging river pulled them down
Now they'll always be together in their happy hunting ground

Running Bear loved Little White Dove
With a love big as the sky
Running Bear loved Little White Dove
With a love that couldn't die

Do Your Ears Hang Low?

Lyrics:

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 The Droop When They're Wet?
Do They Stiffen When They're Dry?
Can You Semaphore Your Neighbor with a Mimimum of Labor?

Do Your Ears Hang High?
Do Your Ears Hang Wide?
Do They Flap From Side to Side?
Do They Wave in the Breeze?
From the Slightest Little Sneeze?
Can You Soar Above the Nation with a Feeling of Elation?

Do Your Ears Hang Wide?
Do Your Ears Fall Off?
When You Give a Great Big Cough?
Do They Lie There on the Ground?
Or Bounce Up at Every Sound?
Can You Stick Them in Your Pocket Just Like Little Davy Crockett?

Do Your Ears Fall Off?

Just A Bowl Of Butter Beans

Lyrics: BUTTER BEANS (Charles D. Colvin - To the tune of "Just A Closer Walk With Thee) Little Jimmy Dickens - 1965 Also recorded by: Johnny Russell; Papa Joe Smiddy. Just a bowl of butter beans Pass the cornbread if you please I don't want no collard greens All I want is a bowl of butter beans Just a piece of country ham Pass the butter and the jam Pass the biscuits if you please And some more o' them good ol' butter beans Red eye gravy is all right Turnip sandwich a delight But my children all still scream For another bowl of butter beans Some folks think that cornpone's best Some likes grits more than the rest But if I was a man of means I'd just want them good ol' butter beans See that lady over there With the curlers in her hair She's not pregnant as she seems She's just full o' them good ol' butter beans See that big, fat, ugly lad He's made everybody mad They don't love him, by no means He's the hog that ate the last of the butter beans When they lay my bones to rest Place no roses upon my chest Plant no blooming evergreens All I want is' a bowl of butter beans Just a bowl of butter beans Pass the cornbread if you please I don't want no collard greens All I want is a bowl of butter beans Click Here for video.

Crazy Mixed Up Song

Lyrics: Billy Cotton & His Band ‘Twas midnight on the ocean not a streetcar was in sight The sun was shining brightly in the middle of the night A barefoot boy with shoes on stood there sitting in a tree And when I put my glasses on I heard this melody Be kind to your web footed friends For a duck may be somebody’s mother Be kind to the denizen of the swamp She’s a dilly through and through You may think that this is the end Well it isn’t ‘cos there is another chorus. ‘Twas midnight on the ocean when the rain began to snow He hurried to me slowly ‘cos the time had come to go I said I’d wait forever if it wouldn’t take too long And silently we harmonised this crazy mixed up song Be kind to your web footed friends For a duck may be somebody’s mother Be kind to the denizen of the swamp She’s a dilly through and through You may think that this is the end Well it isn’t ‘cos there is another chorus. ‘Twas midnight on the ocean on the day I married him I didn’t know his name was Fred that’s why I called him Jim We settled down in London, France, beside the pyramids And raised a little family of crazy mixed up kids Be kind to your web footed friends For a duck may be somebody’s mother Be kind to the denizen of the swamp She’s a dilly through and through You may think that this is the end Well it is.

Tell Me The Story Of Jesus

Lyrics: Tell me the story of Jesus, Write on my heart every word. Tell me the story most precious, Sweetest that ever was heard. Tell how the angels in chorus, Sang as they welcomed His birth. “Glory to God in the highest! Peace and good tidings to earth.” Refrain Tell me the story of Jesus, Write on my heart every word. Tell me the story most precious, Sweetest that ever was heard. Fasting alone in the desert, Tell of the days that are past. How for our sins He was tempted, Yet was triumphant at last. Tell of the years of His labor, Tell of the sorrow He bore. He was despised and afflicted, Homeless, rejected and poor. Refrain Tell of the cross where they nailed Him, Writhing in anguish and pain. Tell of the grave where they laid Him, Tell how He liveth again. Love in that story so tender, Clearer than ever I see. Stay, let me weep while you whisper, Love paid the ransom for me.

On Top Of Spaghetti

Lyrics: On top of spaghetti, 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 in the garden, And under a bush, And then my poor meatball, Was nothing but mush. The mush was as tasty As tasty could be, And then the next summer, It grew into a tree. The tree was all covered, All covered with moss, And on it grew meatballs, And tomato sauce. So if you eat spaghetti, All covered with cheese, Hold on to your meatball, Whenever you sneeze.

The Hornet Song

Lyrics: Sung to the tune of "This Is Like Heaven To Me. When the Canaanites hardened their hearts against God And grieved Him because of their sin, God sent along hornets to bring them to time, And help His own people to win. The hornets persuaded them that it was best, To go quickly, and not to go slow; God did not compel them to go 'gainst their will, But He just made them willing to go. Chorus He does not compel us to go, No! No! He does not compel us to go. He does not compel us to go 'gainst our will But He just makes us willing to go. If a nest of live hornets were brought to this room And the creatures allowed to go free, You would not need urgings to make yourself scarce, You'd want to get out, don't you see. They would not lay hold and by force of their strength Throw you out of the window, Oh No,! They would not compel you' to go 'gainst your will, But they'd just make you willing to go. Chorus When Jonah was sent to the work of the Lord, The outlook was not very bright; He never had done such a hard thing before, So he backed and ran off from the fight. But God sent a big fish to swallow him up, The story I'm sure you all know; He did not compel him to go 'gainst his will, But He just made him willing to go. Chorus When Moses was sent to lead Israel out, To Canaan's rich fruit-bearing land. Resisting His Spirit they worshiped a calf, But refused to obey God's Command. God did not compel them to go to the land, Which with wine, milk, and honey did flow, But fed them on manna for forty long years, 'Till He got them all ready to go. Chorus When Balaam was sent to the Moabite king, And wanted things run his own way, His mule, ever faithful, spoke at the right time, Made him willing God's Will to obey. God can use any man, since He used Balaam's mule, For He is Almighty you know; He does not compel us to go 'gainst our will But He just makes us willing to go.

What A Friend We Have In Jesus

Lyrics: What a friend we have in Jesus, All our sins and griefs to bear! What a privilege to carry Everything to God in prayer! Oh, what peace we often forfeit, Oh, what needless pain we bear, All because we do not carry Everything to God in prayer! Have we trials and temptations? Is there trouble anywhere? We should never be discouraged— Take it to the Lord in prayer. Can we find a friend so faithful, Who will all our sorrows share? Jesus knows our every weakness; Take it to the Lord in prayer. Are we weak and heavy-laden, Cumbered with a load of care? Precious Savior, still our refuge— Take it to the Lord in prayer. Do thy friends despise, forsake thee? Take it to the Lord in prayer! In His arms He’ll take and shield thee, Thou wilt find a solace there. Blessed Savior, Thou hast promised Thou wilt all our burdens bear; May we ever, Lord, be bringing All to Thee in earnest prayer. Soon in glory bright, unclouded, There will be no need for prayer— Rapture, praise, and endless worship Will be our sweet portion there. Click Here For Video. Source: Youtube

Dixie's Land (1916 recording)

Lyrics:

I wish I was in the land of cotton,
Old times they are not forgotten;
Look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie Land.

In Dixie Land where I was born in,
Early on one frosty mornin,
Look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie Land.

Old Missus marry "Will-de-weaber,"
Willium was a gay deceaber;
Look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie Land.

But when he put his arm around'er,
He smiled as fierce as a forty-pound'er,
Look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie Land.

Dar's buck-wheat cakes an 'Ingen' batter,
Makes you fat or a little fatter;
Look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie Land.

Den hoe it down an scratch your grabble,
To Dixie land I'm bound to trabble.
Look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie Land.

Swanee River (1915)

Lyrics: "Old Folks at Home", by Stephen Foster, 1851 Way down upon de Swanee Ribber, Far, far away, Dere's wha my heart is turning ebber, Dere's wha de old folks stay. All up and down de whole creation Sadly I roam, Still longing for de old plantation, And for de old folks at home. Chorus All de world am sad and dreary, Eb-rywhere I roam; Oh, darkeys, how my heart grows weary, Far from de old folks at home! 2nd verse All round de little farm I wandered When I was young, Den many happy days I squandered, Many de songs I sung. When I was playing wid my brudder Happy was I; Oh, take me to my kind old mudder! Dere let me live and die. 3rd Verse One little hut among de bushes, One dat I love Still sadly to my memory rushes, No matter where I rove. When will I see de bees a-humming All round de comb? When will I hear de banjo strumming, Down in my good old home? Click Here For Video. Source: Youtube

Alma Gluck - Old Black Joe

Lyrics: Songwriters: LUTHER/PHILLIPS Gone are the days when my heart was young and gay Gone are the toils of the cotton fields away Gone to the fields of a better land I know I hear those gentle voices calling, "Old Black Joe" I'm coming, I'm coming For my head is bending low I hear those gentle voices calling, "Old Black Joe" I'm coming home (I'm coming home) I'm coming home (I'm coming home) Oh-oh my head is bending low I hear those gentle voices calling, "Old Black Joe" Old Black Joe, Old Black Joe, Old Black Joe Why do I weep when my heart should feel no pain? Why do I sigh that my friends come not again? Grieving for forms now departed long ago I hear their gentle voice calling, "Old Black Joe" Where are the hearts once so happy and free? The children so dear that I held upon my knee? Gone to the shore where my soul has long'd to go I hear their gentle voice calling, "Old Black Joe" Click Here For Video. Source: Youtube

Rex Allen - Son, Don't Go Near The Indians

Lyrics: Songwriters: MANN (CHORUS) Son, don't go near the Indians Please stay away Son, don't go near the Indians Please do what I say Since I was just a little boy I liked to roam the hills And to hear wild stories About the Indians Was my biggest thrill I'd shout and yell And holler like them I wore moccasins on my feet And I'd make believe I was under a teepee Every time I went to sleep My hair was jet black And I was twenty-one Lots of pretty girls around But the paleface maidens Didn't thrill me none Around my Cochise County hometown (CHORUS) One day I went to the reservation And there by a shallow creek Was a beautiful Indian A-fetching water And I just had to speak She smiled at me then quickly left But the next day she returned And it wasn't very long Til I told her how The love in my heart burned (CHORUS) I told my daddy I'd found a girl Who meant the world to me And tomorrow I'd ask the Indian chief For the hand of Nova Lee Dad's trembling lips spoke softly As he told me of my life Twas then he said I could never take This maiden for my wife (Spoken) Son, the white man and Indian Were fighting when you were born And a brave called Yellow Sun Scalped my little boy So I stole you to get even For what he'd done Though you're a Full-blooded Indian, son I love you as much as my Own little feller that's dead And, son, Nova Lee is your sister And that's why I've always said (CHORUS) Click Here For Video.

Gene Sullivan - Please Pass The Biscuits

Lyrics: ( singers) Just picture a lad, between Mom and Dad Its Sunday the tables all set There's uncles, there's aunts, and cousins galore There's plenty of food to be et The blessing is said, they reach for the bread It's a feast a king could afford There's clatter, there's chatter, but something's the matter There's someone who's being ignored (spoken) Uh, would you please pass the biscuits? Uh, would you pass the biscuits please? Same thing ever Sunday since I can't remember when Kinfolks all around the table and the biscuits at tuther end I got a plate of chicken and taters, and a lot of stuff like that All, all I need is a biscuit, but I wish you'd look where they're at I guess I could reach across the table, But that's ill-mannered, Mom always said I wish I had a biscuit, I just can't eat without bread Uh, would you pass the biscuits Uh, excuse me, would you please pass the biscuits All I want is a biscuit, nobody seems to care If they wouldn't talk so dog-gone loud They might be able to hear Hot doggies, they're half-finished eatin' and I ain't even begun I wish you'd look at them biscuits disappear, I'll be luck if I get a one Same thing ever Sunday, always company to be fed They're talkin' like they're wound up Boy, I wish I had a piece of bread HEY! Would, would, would you please pass the biscuits It looks like somebody would notice that I ain't started eatin' yet Sure be glad when they get their fill, and go into the parlor and set Then, by golly, I won't have to use my manners I'll just get a biscuit myself Well, I'll be a monkey's uncle, there ain't a biscuit left The only day of the week we get Sunday-fed And they've et up all the biscuits And, uh, I just can't eat without bread (singers) There's something the matter, no bread on the platter And he just can't eat without bread Lyrics from eLyrics.net Click Here For Video.

I pulled you out and we were safe, But you went running back. (Chorus) Teen Angel, can you hear me? Teen Angel, can you see me? Are you somewhere up above, And am I still your own true love? (verse 2) What was it you were looking for, That took your life that night? They said they found my high school ring clutched in your fingers tight... (chorus) (verse 3) Just sweet sixteen, and now you're gone. They've taken you away I'll never kiss your lips again They buried you today... (chorus)(2x) Teen Angel... Answer me... please...
