I Got A Pea

Lyrics:

Today for show and tell I’m so excited I might yell
I can’t wait to show you - it’s so cool
I went to grandma’s yesterday
…. worked in her garden the whole day
She let me bring some veggies here to school.

I gotta carrot, I gotta yam,
I gotta a green bean fresh not from a can.
I gotta potato, and as you can probably see,
I also gotta pea
I gotta pea, I gotta pea. Why is everyone laughing at me?
So If you find a little pea on the floor after I leave
I think it probably belongs to me.

I got a pumkin, I gotta squash,
I got some lettuce I still need to wash,
I got an onion, and some broccoli,
I also gotta pea.

I gotta pea, I gotta pea.
Why is everyone laughing at me?
So If you find a little pea on the floor after I leave,
I think it probably belongs to me.
Yes, If you find a little pea on the floor after I leave,
I think it probably belongs to me.

A Peanut Sat on a Railroad Track

A peanut sat
On a railroad track,
His heart was all a-flutter,

Round the bend
Came number ten.
Toot! Toot! Peanut butter!
SQUISH! 
 
 


 

The Animals Went in Two by Two

Lyrics:

Written by: Unknown, Copyright: Unknown

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 great 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,
They warmed each other to keep 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 he was going to heaven
And they all went into the ark, for to get out of the rain.

Nobody's Child

Lyrics:

I'm nobody's child, I'm nobody's child
I'm like a flower just growing wild
There's no mommy's kisses and no daddy's smiles
Nobody wants me I'm nobody's child

I was slowly passin' an orphan's home one day
And stop there for a moment just to watch the children play
Alone a boy was standin' and when I asked him why
He turned his eyes that couldn't see and he began to cry

People come for children and take them for their own
But they all seem to pass me by and leave me all alone
I know they'd like to take me but when they see that I'm blind
They always take some other child and I'm left behind

I'm nobody's child, I'm nobody's child
I'm like a flower just growing wild
There's no mommy's kisses and no daddy's smiles
Nobody wants me I'm nobody's child

Can't Get to Heaven

Lyrics:

Oh, you can't get to Heaven in an old Ford car
'Cause an old Ford car won't get that far

Oh, you can't get to Heaven in a ping pong ball
'Cause a ping pong ball is much too small

Oh, you can't get to Heaven in a limousine
'Cause the Lord ain't got no gasoline

Oh, you can't get to Heaven in a Sabre Jet
'Cause the Lord ain't got no runways yet

Oh, you can't get to Heaven in a Girl Scout's arms
'Cause the Lord don't fall for those feminine charms

Oh, you can't get to Heaven in a rocking chair
'Cause the Lord don't want no lazybones there

Oh, you can't get to Heaven in a wicker chair
'Cause the Lord don't want no baskets there

Oh, you can't get to Heaven in a biscuit tin
'Cause a biscuit tin's got biscuits in

Oh, you can't get to Heaven in an apple tree
'Cause an apple tree's got roots you see

Oh, you can't get to Heaven on roller skates
You'd roll right by them Pearly Gates

You'll never get to heaven in your girlfriend's bra
'Cause your girlfriend's bra can't stretch that far

Oh, you can't get to Heaven on a Honda bike
'Cause you'll get halfway, then you'll have to hike

Oh, you can't get to Heaven in our row boat
'Cause our row boat won't even float.

Oh, you can't get to Heaven in dirty jeans
'Cause heaven's got no washing machines.

Oh, you can't get to Heaven in a Kleenex box
'Cause God don't like no dirty snots.

Oh, you can't get to Heaven on a pair of skis
You'll shuss right through St. Peter's knees.

Oh, you can't get to Heaven in our Leader's pants
'Cause his pants are full of ants

Oh, you can't get to Heaven on water skis
'Cause the angels don't like hairy knees

Oh, you can't get to Heaven with powder and paint
'Cause it makes you look like what you ain't

Oh, you can't get to Heaven in a strapless gown
'Cause that gown thing might fall right down

Oh I want to go to heaven, and I want to do it right
So I'll go up to heaven all dressed in white

Oh one fine day, and it won't be long
You'll look for me, and I'll be gone

And if you get to heaven before I do
Just drill a hole and pull me through

But if I get to heaven before you do
I'll drill a hole and spit on you

Well if I get to heaven, before you do
I'll plug that hole, with shavings and glue

That's all there is, there is no more
St. Peter said, as he shut the door

Oh there's one more thing I forgot to tell
If you don't go to heaven, you'll go to...bed

And that's the end, St. Peter said
As he closed the gates, And went to bed.

Camp Granada

Lyrics:

Hello muddah, hello faddah
Here I am at Camp Granada
Camp is very entertaining
And they say we'll have some fun if it stops raining.

I went hiking with Joe Spivy.
He developed poison ivy.
You remember Leonard Skinner
He got ptomaine poisoning last night after dinner.

All the counselors hate the waiters
And the lake has alligators
And the head coach wants no sissies
So he reads to us from something called Ulysses.

Now I don't want this should scare ya
But my bunkmate has malaria.
You remember Jeffrey Hardy
They're about to organize a searching party.

Take me home, oh muddah, fadduh
Take me home, I hate Granada!
Don't leave me out in the forest

Where I might get eaten by a bear.

Take me home, I promise I will not make noise,
Or mes the house with other boys.
Oh, please don't make me stay,
I've been here one whole day.

Dearest fadduh, darling muddah,
How's my precious little bruddah?
Let me come home, if you miss me
I would even let Aunt Bertha hug and kiss me.

Wait a minute, it's stopped hailing.
Guys are swimming, guys are sailing
Playing baseball, gee that's bettah
Muddah, faddah kindly disregard this letter!


Follow On version

Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh.
I am back at Camp Granada.
And I'm writing you this letter
Just to say my compound fracture's getting better.

No one here knows where my trunk is
And my bunk is where the skunk is.
And this year the food's improving
'Cause the little black things in it are not moving.

Our camp nurse is quite a swimmer.
She says swimming makes you slimmer.
Her name's Mrs. Balagreeni.
Have you ever seen a whale in a bikini?

All our bathrooms have such thin doors.
Gee, I wish they'd move them indoors.
We're all tired of Mother Goose here.
So next Friday night they're having Lenny Bruce here.

Let me stay, oh Muddah, Fadduh.
Let me stay, I love Granada.
Every night the camp fire's really keen.
Oh mom, please send some Ovaltine.

Let me stay, out here in mother nature's land
And tip-toe through the tulips grand.
To leave would be a shame.
Besides, I'd miss the poker game.

Please don't worry, Fadduh, Muddah.
I'll take care of little brudda.
He plays ball here and he rows here
And I hope they teach him how to blow his nose here.

He wakes up at half past six and
Goes directly to the quick sand.
He was lonely, now he's better.
He's like all of us except his bed is wetter.

What Did Delaware, Boys?

Lyrics:

Oh, what did Delaware, boys? Oh, what did Delaware?
Oh, what did Delaware, boys? Oh, what did Delaware?
Oh, what did Delaware, boys? Oh, what did Delaware?
I ask you now as a personal friend, what did Delaware?

She wore her New Jersey, boys. She wore her New Jersey.
She wore her New Jersey, boys. She wore her New Jersey.
She wore her New Jersey, boys. She wore her New Jersey.
I tell you now as a personal friend, she wore her New Jersey.

Other verse pairs include:

Oh, what does Iowa? She weighs a Washington.
Oh, what does Idaho? She hoes her Maryland.
Oh, what does Tennessee? She sees what Arkansas.
Oh, where has Oregon? She's gone to Oklahoma.
Oh, what did Massa-chew? She chewed her Connecti-cud.
Oh, how did Flori-die? She died in Missouri.

Here's a second version of the song, which appears to go to a
different tune than the song above.

What did Delaware, boys?
What did Delaware?
What did Delaware, boys?
What did Delaware?

She wore a brand New Jersey,
She wore a brand New Jersey,
She wore a brand New Jersey,
That's what she did wear.

Why did Cali-phone ya,
Why did Cali-phone?
Why did Cali-phone ya,
Was she all alone?

She phoned to say "Hawaii"
She phoned to say ("How-ah-yee")
She phoned to say "Hawaii"
That's why she did phone.

Where has Oregon, boys,
Where has Oregon?
If you want Alaska,
(I'll-ask-a) where she's gone.

She went to pay her Texas
She went to pay her Texas
She went to pay her Texas,
That's where she has gone.

What did Mississip, boys,
What did Mississip?
What did Mississip, boys,
Through her pretty lips?

She sipped a Minna-soda,
She sipped a Minna-soda,
She sipped a Minna-soda,
That's what she did sip.

How did Wiscon-sin, boys?
She stole a New-brass-key,
Too bad that Arkan-saw, boys,
And so did Tenna-see.
It made poor Flori-die, boys,
It made poor Flori-die, you see,
She died in Missouri, boys,
She died in Missouri!

Chorus:
 
I know it brother brother,
Indeed I know it brother, I know it HEY!

The lord he thought he'd make a man.
DEM BONES GONNA RISE AGAIN!
So he made Adam cordin' to a plan.

Thought he'd make a woman too.
The Lord didn't know just what to do.
Took a rib from Adam's side.
For to make Miss Eve, his bride.

Repeat chorus

Put 'em in a garden wide and fair.
Dem bones gonna rise again
Told 'em to eat what they found there.
Dem bones gonna rise again

Repeat chorus

Peaches, pears, plums and such.
Dem bones gonna rise again
But the apple tree you better not touch.
Dem bones gonna rise again

Repeat chorus

One day Miss Eve was walking around
Dem bones gonna rise again
.Spied that tree all loaded down.
Dem bones gonna rise again

Repeat chorus

Serpent crawling around that trunk.
Dem bones gonna rise again
At miss Eve, his eye he wunk.
Dem bones gonna rise again

Repeat chorus
 

Eve, she just took a little pull.
Dem bones gonna rise again
Then she filled her fig leaf full.
Dem bones gonna rise again

Repeat chorus

Adam, he just took a little bite.
Dem bones gonna rise again
Said um'um woman that sure am nice.
Dem bones gonna rise again

Repeat chorus

One day the Lord was walking around.
Dem bones gonna rise again
Spied them peels all over the ground.
Dem bones gonna rise again
 
Repeat chorus

The Lord cried out in his mighty voice.
Dem bones gonna rise again
That shook the heavens to the joists.
Dem bones gonna rise again

Repeat chorus

Cried, Adam, Adam, Where art though?
Dem bones gonna rise again
Here I is Lord, I's comin' now.
Dem bones gonna rise again

Repeat chorus

Adam, Adam, did you eat these?
Dem bones gonna rise again
No massa Lord, I 'spect it was Eve.
Dem bones gonna rise again

Repeat chorus

Then the Lord rose up in his might wrath,
Dem bones gonna rise again
Said ya'll just beat it down the path.
Dem bones gonna rise again

Repeat chorus

Put an angel at the door.
Dem bones gonna rise again
Said ya'll don't come 'round here no more.
Dem bones gonna rise again

Repeat chorus

Eve took the needle, Adam took the plow.
Dem bones gonna rise again
That's why we're all working now.
Dem bones gonna rise again

Repeat chorus

To this tale there ain't no more.
Dem bones gonna rise again
Eve got the Apple, and Adam got the core.
Dem bones gonna rise again

Swing Low, Sweet Chariot

Lyrics:

Well, now I looked over Jordan and what did I see
Comin' for to carry me home
There was a band of angels a comin' after me
Comin' for to carry me home
Swing low, sweet chariot
Comin' for to carry me home
Swing low, sweet chariot
Comin' for to carry me home
Well, I'm sometimes up and I'm sometimes down
Comin' for to carry me home
But I know my soul is heavenly bound
Comin' for to carry me home
Swing low, sweet chariot
Comin' for to carry me home
Swing low, sweet chariot
Comin' for to carry me home
Well, now if you get there before I do
Comin' for to carry me home
Tell all of my friends that I'm a comin' too
Comin' for to carry me home
Swing low, sweet chariot
Comin' for to carry me home
Swing low, sweet chariot
Comin' for to carry me home
Well, now they're comin' for to carry me home
