Go Tell It On The Mountain

Lyrics:

When I was a sinner
I prayed both night and day
I asked the Lord to aid me
And He showed me the way:

Go tell it on the mountain
Over the hills and ev'rywhere
Go tell it on the mountain
'Cause Jesus Christ is born

When I was a seeker
I sought both night and day
I asked the Lord to help me
And He taught me how to pray

Go tell it on the mountain
Over the hills and ev'rywhere
Go tell it on the mountain
'Cause Jesus Christ is born

Down in a lowly manger
The humble Christ was born
And God sent out salvation
That blessed Christmas morn

Go tell it on the mountain
Over the hills and ev'rywhere
Go tell it on the mountain
'Cause Jesus Christ is born

Frosty The Snowman

Lyrics:

Written by: Walter Rollins and Steve Nelson,
Copyright: Unknown

Frosty the snowman was a jolly happy soul,
With a corncob pipe and a button nose,
And two eyes made out of coal.

Frosty the snowman is a fairy tale, they say,
He was made of snow but the children
know how he came to life one day.

There must have been some magic in that
Old silk hat they found.
For when they placed it on his head,
He began to dance around.

Oh, Frosty the snowman
Was alive as he could be,
And the children say he could laugh
And play just the same as you and me.

Thumpetty thump thump,
Thumpetty thump thump,
Look at Frosty go.

Thumpetty thump thump,
Thumpetty thump thump,
Over the hills of snow.

Frosty the snowman knew
The sun was hot that day,
So he said, 'Let's run and
we'll have some fun
now before I melt away.'

Down to the village,
With a broomstick in his hand,
Running here and there all
Around the square saying,
Catch me if you can.

He led them down the streets of town
Right to the traffic cop.
And he only paused a moment when
He heard him holler 'Stop!'

For Frosty the snowman
Had to hurry on his way,
But he waved goodbye saying,
'Don't you cry,
I'll be back again some day.'

Thumpetty thump thump,
Thumpetty thump thump,
Look at Frosty go.

Thumpetty thump thump,
Thumpetty thump thump,
Over the hills of snow.

All Around The Mullberry Bush

Lyrics:

All around the mulberry bush
The monkey chased the weasel.
The monkey thought 'twas all in fun.
Pop! goes the weasel.

A penny for a spool of thread,
A penny for a needle.
That's the way the money goes.
Pop! goes the weasel.

Up and down the City Road,
In and out of the Eagle,
That's the way the money goes.
Pop! goes the weasel.

Half a pound of tuppenney rice,
Half a pound of treacle,
Mix it up and make it nice,
Pop! goes the weasel.

Oh Playmate, Come Out and Play With Me

Lyrics:

Say, say, oh playmate,
Come out and play with me
And bring your dollies three
Climb up my apple tree

Shout down my rain barrel
Slide down my cellar door
And we'll be jolly friends
Forever more more more more more

Say, say, oh playmate
I cannot play with you
My dolly's got the flu
Boo hoo hoo hoo hoo hoo

Ain't got no rain barrel
Ain't got no cellar door
But we'll be jolly friends
Forever more more more more more  


Words and music by Saxie Dowell ~ Version one


Lyrics:  Version Two

Say, say, oh playmate,
Come out and play with me
And bring your dollies three
Climb up my apple tree

Slide down my rainbow
Into my cellar door
And we'll be jolly friends
Forever more, 1-2-3-4

It was a rainy day,
She couldn't come out and play
With tearful eyes, she breathed a sigh
And I could hear her say:

Say, say, oh playmate
I cannot play with you
My dolly's got the flu
Boo hoo hoo hoo hoo hoo

Ain't got no rainbow
Ain't got no cellar door
But we'll be jolly friends
Forever more, 1-2-3-4

Didn't My Lord Deliver Daniel?

Lyrics:
Didn't my Lord deliver Daniel,
Deliver Daniel, deliver Daniel?
Didn't my lord deliver Daniel,
Then why not a every man?
He delivered Daniel
From the lion's den,
And Jonah from the belly of the whale,
And the Hebrew children
From the fiery furnace,
Then why not every man?

Didn't my Lord deliver Daniel,
Deliver Daniel, deliver Daniel?
Didn't my lord deliver Daniel,
Then why not a every man?
I set my foot
On the gospel ship,
And the ship it begin to sail,
And it landed me over
On Canaan's shore,
And I'll never come back anymore.

Didn't my Lord deliver Daniel,
Deliver Daniel, deliver Daniel?
Didn't my lord deliver Daniel,
Then why not a every man?

The Crayon Box Song

Lyrics:

When I was just a little boy (girl)
No higher than your knee,
My mother bought a box of crayons,
Just for me.
I picked them up, I opened them up
I looked way down inside,
And the colors there reminded me
Of Jesus when He died.

Red is the color of the blood that He shed,
Brown's for the crown that they laid upon His head.
Blue is for royalty! Within him did do dwell;
And yellow is for the Christian who's afraid to tell.

I colored and I colored
'Til the crayons were all gone,
But though I am much older now,
The mem'ry lingers on.
And when I see a little child
With crayon box in hand,
I tell them what they mean to me
And hope they'll understand.

Red is the color of the blood that He shed,
Brown's for the crown that they laid upon His head.
Blue is for royalty! Within him did do dwell;
And yellow is for the Christian who's afraid to tell.

Afraid to tell of a Savior
Who died on Calvary,
Who died for lowly sinners
Just like you and me;
And someday He is coming back
To be our King,
And the colors in the crayon box
We will sing!

Red is the color of the blood that He shed,
Brown's for the crown that they laid upon His head.
Blue is for royalty! Within him did do dwell;
And Red is the color of the blood that He shed,
Brown's for the crown that they laid upon His head.
Blue is for royalty! Within him did do dwell;
And yellow is for the Christian who's afraid to tell.
Yellow is for the Christian who's afraid to tell.
Yellow is for the Christian who's afraid to tell.

Blow The Man Down

Lyrics:

Oh, blow the man down, bullies, blow the man down
Way aye blow the man down
Oh, blow the man down, bullies, blow him away
Give me some time to blow the man down!

As I was a walking down Paradise Street
Way aye blow the man down
A pretty young damsel I chanced for to meet.
Give me some time to blow the man down!

She was round in the counter and bluff in the bow,
Way aye blow the man down
So I took in all sail and cried, "Way enough now."
Give me some time to blow the man down!

So I tailed her my flipper and took her in tow
Way aye blow the man down
And yardarm to yardarm away we did go.
Give me some time to blow the man down!

But as we were going she said unto me
Way aye blow the man down
"There's a spanking full-rigger just ready for sea."
Give me some time to blow the man down!

But as soon as that packet was clear of the bar
Way aye blow the man down
The mate knocked me down with the end of a spar.
Give me some time to blow the man down!

It's starboard and larboard on deck you will sprawl
Way aye blow the man down
For Kicking Jack Williams commands the Black Ball.
Give me some time to blow the man down!

So I give you fair warning before we belay,
Way aye blow the man down
Don't ever take head of what pretty girls say.
Give me some time to blow the man down!

Bile Dat Cabbage Down

Lyrics:

Went up on the mountain
And I give my horn a blow;
Thought I heard my true love say,
"Yonder comes my beau!"

Bile dat cabbage down
Bake dat hoe-cake brown
Craziest song I ever heard,
Bile dat cabbage down.

Took my gal to the blacksmith shop
To have her mouth made small;
She turned around a time or two
And swallowed shop and all.

Bile dat cabbage down
Bake dat hoe-cake brown
Craziest song I ever heard,
Bile dat cabbage down.

Possum in a 'simmon tree,
Raccoon on the ground,
Raccoon says, "You son-of-a-gun,
Shake some 'simmons down!"

Bile dat cabbage down
Bake dat hoe-cake brown
Craziest song I ever heard,
Bile dat cabbage down.

Someone stole my hunting dog,
Wish they'd bring him back,
He chased the big hogs through the fence
And the little ones through the crack.

Bile dat cabbage down
Bake dat hoe-cake brown
Craziest song I ever heard,
Bile dat cabbage down.

Met a possum in the road,
Blind as he could be,
Jumped the fence and whipped my dog
And bristled up at me.

Bile dat cabbage down
Bake dat hoe-cake brown
Craziest song I ever heard,
Bile dat cabbage down.

Once I had an old gray mule,
His name was Simon Slick,
He'd roll his eyes and back his ears,
And how that mule would kick!

Bile dat cabbage down
Bake dat hoe-cake brown
Craziest song I ever heard,
Bile dat cabbage down.

There's gold up in them there hills,
I know it for the truth,
For my gal fell up there
And lost her new front tooth.

Bile dat cabbage down
Bake dat hoe-cake brown
Craziest song I ever heard,
Bile dat cabbage down.

Bill Grogan's Goat

Lyrics:

There was a man
(There was a man)
Now please take note
(Now please take note)
There was a man
(There was a man)
Who had a goat
(Who had a goat)

He loved that goat
(He loved that goat)
Indeed he did
(Indeed he did)
He loved that goat
(He loved that goat)
Just like a kid
(Just like a kid)

One day that goat
(One day that goat)
Felt frisk and fine
(Felt frisk and fine)
Ate three red shirts
(Ate three red shirts)
Right off the line
(Right off the line)

The man, he grabbed
(The man, he grabbed)
Him by the back
(Him by the back)
And tied him to
(And tied him to)
A railroad track
(A railroad track)

Now, when that train
(Now, when that train)
Hove into sight
(Hove into sight)
That goat grew pale
(That goat grew pale)
And green with fright
(And green with fright)

He heaved a sigh
(He heaved a sigh)
As if in pain
(As if in pain)
Coughed up those shirts
(Coughed up those shirts)
And flagged the train!
(And flagged the train!)

Betty Botter

Lyrics:

Betty Botter bought some butter,
"But," she said, "the butter's bitter;
If I put it in my batter,
It will make my batter bitter;
But a bit of better butter,
That would make my batter better."

So she bought a bit of butter,
Better than her bitter butter,
And she put it in her batter,
And the batter was not bitter;
So it was better Betty Botter
Bought a bit of better butter.

The Animals Went In Two By Two

Lyrics:

The animals went in two by two, hurrah, hurrah,
The animals went in two by two, hurrah, hurrah.
The animals went in two by two,
The elephant and the kangaroo
And they all went into the ark, for to get out of the rain.

The animals went in three by three, hurrah, hurrah,
The animals went in three by three, hurrah, hurrah.
The animals went in three by three,
The wasp, the ant and the bumble bee,
And they all went into the ark, for to get out of the rain.

The animals went in four by four, hurrah, hurrah,
The animals went in four by four, hurrah, hurrah.
The animals went in four by four,
The big hippopotamus stuck in the door,
And they all went into the ark, for to get out of the rain.

The animals went in five by five, hurrah, hurrah,
The animals went in five by five, hurrah, hurrah,
The animals went in five by five,
By hugging each other they kept alive,
And they all went into the ark, for to get out of the rain.

The animals went in six by six, hurrah, hurrah,
The animals went in six by six, hurrah, hurrah.
The animals went in six by six,
They turned out the monkey because of his tricks,
And they all went into the ark, for to get out of the rain.

The animals went in seven by seven, hurrah, hurrah,
The animals went in seven by seven, hurrah, hurrah,
The animals went in seven by seven,
The little pig thought it was going to heaven,
And they all went into the ark, for to get out of the rain.

The animals went in eight by eight, hurrah, hurrah,
The animals went in eight by eight, hurrah, hurrah,
The animals went in eight by eight,
The turtle thought he was coming late,
And they all went into the ark, for to get out of the rain.

The animals went in nine by nine, hurrah, hurrah,
The animals went in nine by nine, hurrah, hurrah,
The animals went in nine by nine,
Marching up in a long straight line,
And they all went into the ark, for to get out of the rain.

The animals went in ten by ten, hurrah, hurrah,
The animals went in ten by ten, hurrah, hurrah,
The animals went in ten by ten,
The last one in was the little red hen,
And they all went into the ark, for to get out of the rain,
And they all went into the ark, for to get out of the rain.  


Sang to the tune of "When Johnny Comes Marching Home"

I Can't, But God Can

Lyrics:

I can't tell when friends are true, but God can,
I can't look inside of you, but God can
Can't turn darkness into light, can't make mountains snowy white
Can't give blinded eyes their sight, but God can

Chorus:

Sometimes, I wonder in His plan, if He included me
And then, I think how one small acorn made the big oak tree
I can't make the morning dew, I can't make the skies a blue
I can't make a dream come true, but God can

Verse:

I can't make a simple cloud, but God can,
I can't feed a hungry crowd, but God can
I can't make the lame to walk, I can't make the dumb to talk
Can't put corn upon a stalk, but God can.

Chorus:

Sometimes, I wonder in His plan, if He included me
And then, I think how one small acorn made the big oak tree
God will give the strength we lack, follow Him and don't look back
Sometimes, we can't see the track, but God can

Verse:

I can't calm the raging sea, but God can,
Can't make honey like a bee, but God can
I can't make the lightening stop,
Can't make earth produce a crop
I can't make it rain a drop, but God can

Chorus:

Our great men showed their mighty power, on land, and air and sea
But, science can't produce one thing that lives, or dies, or breathes
I don't know just what's in store, I can't see through Heaven's door
Never walked this way before, we don't know what we're asking for.....

Tag:

I can't tell you anymore, but God can!
I can't tell you anymore, but God can!

Other Lyrics:

I Can't But God Can

I can't calm a raging storm, But God can
Renew the freshness of the morn, But God can
I can't make the birds to sing or make flowers bloom, When it comes Spring
Or mend the Sparrows broken wing, but God can
It's good to know the one who hung the stars in bright array
And good to know He sees the hurt I feel from day to day
No I can't part a mighty sea, And I can't make the Demons flee
But I can fall down on my knees and God can. 

The Children God has trusted into my hands
Their future eyes may not see, But God can
Tomorrow's dawn, He'll still be there
So I'll just leave them in His care
Knowing He will hear my Prayer. Yes God Can
It's good to know the one who hung the stars in bright array
And good to know He sees the hurt, I feel from day to day
No I can't part a mighty sea, And I can't make the demons flee
But I can fall down on my knees and God can
Yes I can fall down on my knees and God can.

Go Rest High On That Mountain

Lyrics: 


I know your life
On earth was troubled
And only you could know the pain
You weren't afraid to face the devil
You were no stranger to the rain

[Chorus:]
 
Go rest high on that mountain
Son, your work on earth is done
Go to heaven a shoutin'
Love for the Father and Son

Oh, how we cried the day you left us
We gathered round your grave to grieve
I wish I could see the angels faces
When they hear your sweet voice sing

[Chorus]

One Eyed one Horned Flying Purple People Eater

Lyrics:

Well I saw the thing coming out of the sky
It had one long horn and one big eye
I commenced to shakin' and I said oo-wee
It looks like a purple people eater to me
It was a one-eyed one-horned flying purple people eater
Sure looks good to me

Well, he came down to earth and he lit in a tree
I said Mr Purple People Eater don't eat me
I heard him say in a voice so gruff
I wouldn't eat you 'cos you're too tough
It was a one-eyed one-horned flying purple people eater
It sure looks strange to me

I said Mr Purple People Eater what's your line
He said eating purple people and it sure is fine
But that's not the reason that I came to land
I wanna get a job in a rock 'n roll band
Well, bless my soul rock 'n roll flying' purple people eater
Pigeon-toed under-growed flyin' purple people eater
One-eyed one-horned it was a people eater
What a sight to see!

Well, he swung from the tree and he lit on the ground
He started to rock really rockin' around
It was a crazy ditty with a swinging tune
Wop bop a lula wop bam boom
One-eyes one-horned flying people eater
Ooh, it sure looks strange to me!

Well he went on his way and then what do you know
I saw him last night on a TV show
He was a blowin' it out and really knockin' them dead
Playing rock 'n roll music through the horn in his head!

Animal Fair

Lyrics:

I went to the Animal Fair
The birds and the beasts were there
The big baboon by the light of the moon
Was combing his auburn hair

You should have seen the monk
He sat on the elephant's trunk
The elephant sneezed and fell on his knees
And what became of the monk?
The monk.
What became of the monk?

Tell Me The Story Of Jesus

Lyrics:
  1. 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.
    •  
  2. 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.
  3. 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.”
  4. Tell how He’s gone back to heaven,
    Up to the right hand of God:
    How He is there interceding
    While on this earth we must trod.
    Tell of the sweet Holy Spirit
    He has poured out from above;
    Tell how He’s coming in glory
    For all the saints of His love.

The Bear Went Over The Mountain

Lyrics:

The bear went over the mountain.
The bear went over the mountain.
The bear went over the mountain
To see what he could see.
To see what he could see.
To see what he could see.
The bear went over the mountain
To see what he could see.
The other side of the mountain.
The other side of the mountain.
The other side of the mountain.
Was all that he could see.
Was all that he could see.
Was all that he could see.
The other side of the mountain.
Was all that he could see.

There's A Hole In The Bottom Of The Sea

Lyrics:

There's a hole in the bottom of the sea
There's a hole in the bottom of the sea
There's a hole
There's a hole
There's a hole in the bottom of the sea
There's a log on the hole in the bottom of the sea
There's a log on the hole in the bottom of the sea
There's a log
There's a log
There's a log on the hole in the bottom of the sea
There's a bump on the log in the hole in the bottom of the sea
There's a bump on the log in the hole in the bottom of the sea
There's a bump
There's a bump
There's a bump on the log in the hole in the bottom of the sea
There's a frog on the bump on the log in the hole in the bottom of the sea
There's a frog on the bump on the log in the hole in the bottom of the sea
There's a frog
There's a frog
There's a frog on the bump on the log in the hole in the bottom of the sea
There's a tail on the frog on the bump on the log in the hole in the bottom of the sea
There's a tail on the frog on the bump on the log in the hole in the bottom of the sea
There's a tail
There's a tail
There's a tail on the frog on the bump on the log in the hole in the bottom of the sea
There's a flea on the tail on the frog on the bump on the log in the hole in the bottom of the sea
There's a flea on the tail on the frog on the bump on the log in the hole in the bottom of the sea
There's a flea
There's a flea
There's a flea on the tail on the frog on the bump on the log in the hole in the bottom of the sea
There's a speck on the flea on the tail on the frog on the bump on the log in the hole in the bottom of the sea
There's a speck on the flea on the tail on the frog on the bump on the log on the hole in the bottom of the sea
There's a speck

There's a speck on the flea on the tail on the frog on the bump on the log in the hole in the bottom of the sea
There's a teeny weeny something that's so small you can't see it
On the speck on the flea on the tail on the frog on the bump on the log in the hole in the bottom of the sea
There's a what?!!
There's........all that stuff in the bottom of the sea
There's a teeny weeny something
There's a teeny weeny something
There's a teeny weeny something.....
On the speck on the flea on the tail on the frog on the bump on the log in the hole in the bottom of the sea
Let's forget about that teeny weeny something and we'll...
Pluck the speck
Flick the flea
Tweak the tail
Flip the frog
Move the bump
Lose the log
Fill up the hole..
In the bottom of the sea...
'cause no one wants a hole in the bottom of the sea!!!!

There's a hole in the bottom of the sea,
There's a hole in the bottom of the sea,

There's a hole in the bottom of the sea.

There's a log in the hole
In the bottom of the sea,
There's a log in the hole
In the bottom of the sea,
There's a log, there's a log,
There's a log in the hole
In the bottom of the sea.
There's a branch on the log in the hole
In the bottom of the sea,
There's a branch on the log in the hole
In the bottom of the sea,
There's a branch, there's a branch,
There's a branch on the log in the hole
In the bottom of the sea.

In the hole in the bottom of the sea,
There's a bump on the branch on the log
In the hole in the bottom of the sea,
There's a bump, there's a bump,
There's a bump on the branch on the log
In the hole in the bottom of the sea.

There's a frog on the bump on the branch
on the log in the hole in the bottom of the sea,
There's a frog on the bump on the branch
on the log in the hole in the bottom of the sea,
There's a frog, there's a frog,
There's a frog on the bump on the branch
on the log in the hole in the bottom of the sea.


There's a tail on the frog on the bump on the branch
on the log in the hole in the bottom of the sea,
There's a tail on the frog on the bump on the branch
on the log in the hole in the bottom of the sea,
There's a tail, there's a tail,
There's a tail on the frog on the bump on the branch
on the log in the hole in the bottom of the sea.

There's a speck on the tail on the frog
On the bump on the branch
On the log in the hole in the bottom of the sea,
There's a speck on the tail on the frog
On the bump on the branch
on the log in the hole in the bottom of the sea,
There's a speck, there's a speck,
There's a speck on the tail on the frog
On the bump on the branch on the log
In the hole in the bottom of the sea.

There's a fleck on the speck on the tail
On the frog on the bump on the branch
On the log in the hole in the bottom of the sea,
There's a fleck on the speck on the tail
On the frog on the bump On the branch
On the log in the hole in the bottom of the sea,
There's a fleck, there's a fleck,
There's a fleck on the speck on the tail
On the frog on the bump on the branch
On the log in the hole in the bottom of the sea.

How Great Thou Art

 
Duets is a reality competition show that features famous musical mentors who search for unknown singers to duet with them as they perform in front of a live studio audience. Jennifer Nettles, of country duo Sugarland, is one of these mentors. She chose to work with a singer named John Glosson. Here, Jennifer and John show everyone how much their hard work has paid off with atruly astonishing rendition of “How Great Thou Art.”

Jennifer Nettles has one of the most beautiful and powerful voices in music today, so John definitely had his work cut out for him. Halfway through the song, the way they belt it out while perfectly blending their voices together sent chills down my spine. It’s effortlessly stunning.

“How Great Thou Art” is a Christian hymn based on a Swedish traditional melody and a poem written by Swedish poet Carl Gustav Boberg in 1885. It was ranked second — after “Amazing Grace” — on a list of the favorite hymns of all time in a 2001 survey by Today’s Christian magazine.

Lyrics:

Oh Lord my God
When I in awesome wonder
Consider all the worlds
Thy hands have made

I see the stars
I hear the rolling thunder
Thy power throughout
The universe displayed

Then sings my soul
My Savior, God, to Thee
How great thou art
How great thou art

Then sings my soul
My Savior, God, to Thee
How great Thou art
How great Thou art

And when I think of God
His son not sparing
Sent Him to die
I scarce can take it in

That on the cross
My burden gladly bearing
He bled and died
To take away my sin

Then sings my soul
My Savior, God, to Thee
How great thou art
How great thou art

Then sings my soul
My Savior, God, to Thee
How great Thou art
How great Thou art

When Christ shall come
With shouts of acclamation
And lead me home
What joy shall fill my heart

Then I shall bow
With humble adoration
And then proclaim My God
How great Thou art

Then sings my soul
My Savior, God, to Thee
How great Thou art
How great Thou art

Then sings my soul
My Savior, God, to Thee
How great Thou art
How great Thou art

How great Thou art
How great Thou art

I'd Rather Drink Muddy Water

Lyrics:

Baby, we got to have a little talk
I ought to pack up my things and walk
I know a dollar goes from hand to hand
But before I let you go from man to man
I'd rather drink muddy water
Sleep out in a hollow log

I work for you like a Georgia mule
My friends all laughed, called me a fool
Your kisses are as sweet as can be
But before I let you make a fool out of me
I'd rather drink muddy water
Lay down and sleep in a hollow log

I love you baby, but you won't be fair
You don't know how to be on the square
Have your fun baby, if you must
But before I'll have a woman that I cannot trust
I'd rather drink muddy water
Sleep out in a hollow log
Muddy water

Yes, Baby, we got to have a little talk
Said I ought to pack up my things and walk
I know a dollar goes from hand to hand
But before I let you go from man to man
I'd rather drink muddy water
Sleep out in a hollow log

I work for you like a Georgia mule
My friends all laughed and they called me a fool
Your kisses are as sweet as can be
But before I let you make a fool out of me
I'd rather drink muddy water
Sleep in a hollow log

Because I love you baby, but you won't be fair
You don't know how to be on the square
Have your fun baby, if you must
But before I'll have a woman that I can't trust
I'd rather drink muddy water
Drink muddy water
Drink muddy water
Sleep out in a hollow log
Muddy water

Muddy

Oh Hand Me Down, My Walking Cane..,

Lyrics:

Hand me down my walking cane
Hand me down my walking cane
Hand me down my walking cane
Lord, I'm leaving on the midnight train
All my sins are taken away
Well, hand me down my rocking shoes
Hand me down my rocking shoes
Baby, hand me down my rocking shoes
We'll rock to the rhythm and blues
All my sins are taken away
Well, hand me down my white sports coat
Hand me down my white sports coat
Well, hand me down my white sports coat
We'll start rocking and, boy, we'll go
All my sins are taken away
Well, hand me down my walking bone
Hand me down my walking bone
Well, hand me down my walking bone
We'll start rocking, we'll be a rolling stone
All my sins are taken away

I Got A Wife

Lyrics:

Hey, I got a wife at home
I got a wife at home
I got a wife she's the apple of my life
But I wish she would leave me alone

When I hear
Hang your clothes up
Wipe your feet off
Goodness sake don't slam the door
Fix the socket, dry the dishes
Can't you do a single chore?
Hang the picture
Set the table
Don't drop ashes on the floor
Heat the bottle
Change the baby
You don't love me anymore

He don't love her anymore
There he goes right out the door
He'll be back 'bout half past ten
And then she'll start right in again

Tack the shade up
Wash the windows
Wipe the handprints off the door
Change the light bulbs
Scrub the bathtub
Pick the toys up from the floor
Tape the lamp cord
Make some coffee
Burn the garbage
Oil the door
Get the kids
And call my mother
You don't love me anymore

I got a wife at home
I got a wife at home
I got a wife she's the apple of my life
But I wish she would leave me alone

When I hear

(Hang your clothes up
Wipe your feet off
Goodness sake don't slam the door)

OK OK I'll do it

(Can't you do a single chore?
Hang the picture
Set the table
Don't drop ashes on the floor)

Yeah OK

(Heat the bottle
Change the baby
You don't love me anymore
Tack the shade up
Wash the windows)

Honey, honey

(Wipe the handprints off the door
Change the light bulbs
Scrub the bathtub
Pick the toys up from the floor)

Please, honey

(Tape the lamp cord
Make some coffee)

Yeah I'll do it

(Oil the door)

QUIET!

He don't love her anymore
There he goes right out the door
He'll be back 'bout half past ten
And then she'll start right in again

SHEE!

The Auctioneer Song

Lyrics:

There was a boy in Arkansas
Who wouldn't listen to his ma
When she told him that he should go to school
He'd sneak away in the afternoon
Take a little walk and pretty soon
You'd find him at the local auction barn

Well, he'd stand and listen carefully
Then pretty soon he began to see
How the auctioneer could talk so rapidly
His pappy'd find him behind the barn
Just a workin up an awful storm
As he tried to immitate the auctioneer

25 Dollar 30 now 30 dollar etc
Who will bid it at a 35 dollar bid
30 Dollar 35 etc
Who will bid it at a 35 dollar bid

Said his pappy, "son we just can't stand a havin'
A mediocre man
You gotta take that auction usin' our good name
I'll send you off to auction school
And then you'll be nobody's fool
You'll be the best of all the auctioneers

35 Dollar 40 dollar etc
Who will bid it a a 45 dollar bid
40 Dollar etc
Who will bid it at a 45 dollar bid

Well from that morning he went to school
There grew a man who played it cool
He came back home a full fledged auctioneer
And people came from miles around
Just to hear him make that rhythmic sound
Cause he's the best of all the auctioneers
Well his fame reached out from shore to shore
He had all he could do and more
He had to buy a plane to get around
Now he's the best in all the land
So let's all give that man a hand
He's the best of all the auctioneers

45 Dollar 50 now etc
Who will bid it at a 55 dollar bid
50 Dollar 50 now will you give me 55 etc
Sold that horse for a 50 dollar bill

I Want To Be A Worker

Lyrics:

I want to be a worker for the Lord,
I want to love and trust His holy Word,
I want to sing and pray,

Be busy every day
In the vineyard of the Lord.

 
Refrain

 
I will work, I will pray,
In the vineyard, in the vineyard of the Lord.
I will work, I will pray.
I will labor every day, in the vineyard of the Lord.
I want to be a worker every day,
I want to lead the erring in the way
That leads to Heav’n above,
Where all is peace and love,
In the vineyard of the Lord.

 
Refrain

 
I want to be a worker strong and brave,
I want to trust in Jesus’ pow’r to save;
All who will truly come
Shall find a happy home
In the vineyard of the Lord.

 
Refrain

 
I want to be a worker; help me, Lord,
To lead the lost and erring to Thy Word,
That points to joys on high
Where pleasures never die,
In the vineyard of the Lord.

 
Refrain
