THREE LITTLE ALIENS I ONCE KNEW

 Three little aliens I once knew

Green and chubby ones they were too,

But one little guy with the antenna on his head,

He led the others with his boing boing boing.

boing boing boing

boing boing boing

He led the others with his boing boing boing.

 

Two little aliens I once knew

Green and chubby ones they were too,

But one little guy with the antenna on his head,

He led the others with his boing boing boing.

boing boing boing

boing boing boing

He led the others with his boing boing boing.

 

One little alien I once knew

A green and cliubby one he was too

He was the guy with the antenna on his head

But there's no one to lead with his boing boing boing

boing boing boing boing boing boing

He led the others with his boing baing boing

 

Repeat 1st verse

 

He led the others with boing boing boing

 

 

Girls and Boys come out to Space

Girls and boys come out to space,

The moon is shining bright as day.

Leave your supper and leave your sleep,

And join the astronauts in the street.

Come with a whoop and come with a call,

Come with good will or not at all.

Up the ladder and into your seat,

Fasten your seat belt and brace your feet

Check your computers and turn the dials,

Push all the buttons and colored tiles

Ground control says "Off you go!"

And we'll be in space in an hour or so.

Girls and boys come out to space,

The moon is shilling bright as day

Girls and boys come out to space,

The moon is shining bright as day

 

THIS LITTLE PIG WENT TO PLUTO

This little pig went to Pluto

This little pig went to Mars

This little pig went to Venus,

And this little pig to the stars,

And this little piggy flew wee, wee, wee, wee, wee,

All the way home

Repeat x 2

 

A ROCKETSHIP BUILT FOR TWO

Daisy, Daisy,

Give me your answer do!

 I'm half crazy,

All for the love of you!

It won't be a stylish marriage,

No Challenger for a carriage

But you'll look sweet upon the seat

Of a rocket ship built for two. Repeat

 

THE COUNT DOWN SONG (3,2,1, BLAST OFF) C. Pennington

Well a big old rocket ship is standing on the pad

The crew is getting cranky, and the captain is mad

So he puts in a call to mission control

 

‘We were supposed to blast off three hours ago!’

Well, mission control says 'Sorry old man,

Things aren't going quite as we planed

You can't blast off if we don't count down;

So you'll just have to stay right there on the ground

 

Well, 'Then just count down for heaven’s sake’

 Said the captain and his voice was beginning to shake

Ground control coughed and said 'ahem…

Uh, we've forgotten how to count backwards for ten’

 

Well, the captain shook his head and he said “Dear me,

How some people get a job is a mystery

Now pay close attention, and this won’t take long,

 I'll teach you the words to the countdown song.’

 

Chorus:

Counting Down,

10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1,

Blast Off!

 

Well, mission control says 'If you wouldn’t mind

'Do you think you could you do that one more time?

The captain said, 'Sure, now pay attention here and listen up…

Chorus

 

Well, mission control says 'Thanks a bunch,

Now just before we go for lunch,

So I don't forget, could you repeat it once again,

And I'll write it down this time with my fountain pen.

And the captain says 'Well, alright.. .'

Chorus

 

Well, mission control says, 'well that's very nice,

And I know you've already repeated it twice,

But could you say it again,' he said stifling a yawn,

'Cause the dog ate the paper that I wrote it on.'

And the captain said, 'This is the very last time.'

Chorus

 

FIVE LITTLE ASTRONAUTS [or FIVE LITTLE MONKEYS)

Five little astronauts walked along the shore,

One went sailing, then there were four

Four little astronauts climbed up a tree

One of them tumbled down, then there were three

Three little astronauts found a pot of glue

One got stuck in it, then there were two

Two little astronauts found a raisin bun

One ran away with it, then there was one

One little astronaut red in the face,

They put him in a Rocketship, and sent him out to space

No little astronauts left on the shore

Now let’s go and find us some more

 

THE BOOSTERS ON THE ROCKET

The boosters on the rocket go whoosh whoosh whoosh

Whoosh whoosh whoosh

Whoosh whoosh whoosh

The boosters on the rocket go whoosh whoosh whoosh

All through space

The people on the rocket float up and down, up and down, up and down

The people on the rocket float up and down

All through space

 

The buttons on the rocket go blink blink blink

Blink blink blink

Blink blink blink

The buttons on the rocket go blink blink blink

All through space

 

The computers on the rocket go beep beep beep

Beep beep beep

Beep beep beep

The computers on the rocket go beep beep beep

All through space

 

THE PLANET SONG (C. Pennington)

Do you want to learn the planets?

(Do you want to learn the planets)

Then repeat after me

(Then repeat after me)

No, no, not that

(No, no, not that)

OK, OK, stop! stop!

I mean repeat after me when I name the planets, OK?

 (OK!)

So if I say repeat after me, don't repeat that, OK

(OK!)

So just repeat when I don't say repeat OK?

(Let's just sing the song!)

OK, here we go ...

(OK, we will!)

And we're gonna learn them every one

Starting with the closest to the sun!

Chorus Repeat x 3

 

FLY ME TO THE MOON

Fly me to the moon

And let me sing among the stars

Let me see what spring is like

On Jupiter and Mars

In other words, hold my hand

In other words, baby kiss me

Fill my heart with song

Let me sing for everyone

You are all I long for

All I worship and adore

In other words, please be true

In other words, I love you

Fly me to the moon

And let me sing among the stars

Let me see what spring is like

On Jupiter and Mars

In other words, hold my hand

In other words, in other words,

In other words, I love you

 

Boom Boom, ain't it great to be Crazy?

Chorus:

Boom Boom, ain't it great to be Crazy?

Boom Boom, ain't it great to be Crazy?

Giddy and Foolish all day long

Boom Boom, ain't it great to be Crazy!

 

Way down south where bananas grow

A flea stepped on a elephant's toe

The elephant cried with tears in his eyes

"Why don't you pick on someone your own size?"

Chorus

 

Way up north were there's ice and snow

There was a penguin and his name was Joe

He got tired of black and white

So he wore pink slacks to the dance last night!

Chorus

 

A horse and a flea and three blind mice

Sat on the curbstone shooting dice

The horse, he slipped and fell on the flea

Woops! said the flea, there's a horse on me!

Chorus

 

I bought a suit of combination underwear

Guaranteed not to rip or tear

I wore them six months and to my consternation

I couldn't get the darned thing off, I'd lost the combination!

Chorus

 

I love myself. I think I'm grand.

When I go to movies, I hold my hand.

I put my arm around my waist,

And when I get fresh, I slap my face.

Chorus

 

I call myself on the telephone

Just to hear my musical tone.

I ask myself for a heavy date,

And I pick myself up at half past eight.

Chorus

 

Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear,

And Fuzzy Wuzzy cut his hair.

So, Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn't fuzzy.

No, by Jove, he wasn't, was he?

Chorus

 

I take a swim in my swimming pool.

I jump from the board 'cause that's the rule.

I hit my head on cement and mortar.

Forgot to look - there was no water.

Chorus

 

That one-eared cat who used to sit

Watching Grandma rock and knit

Swallowed a ball of bright red yarn,

And out came kittens with red sweaters on.

Chorus

 

CLEMENTINE

In a cavern, in a canyon, excavating for a mine,

Lived a miner, forty-niner, and his daughter Clementine.

CHORUS

Oh my darling, Oh my darling,

Oh my darling Clementine,

You 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.

Chorus

 

Drove she ducklings to the water

every morning just at nine,

Hit her foot against a splinter,

fell into the foaming brine.

Chorus

 

Ruby lips above the water,

blowing bubbles soft and fine,

Alas for me! I was no swimmer,

so I lost my Clementine.

Chorus

 

In a churchyard near the canyon,

where the myrtle doth entwine,

There grow roses and other posies,

fertilized by Clementine.

Chorus

 

Then the miner, forty-niner,

soon began to peak and pine,

Thought he oughter join his daughter,

now he's with his Clementine.

Chorus

 

In my dreams she still doth haunt me,

robed in garments soaked in brine,

While in life I used to hug her,

now she's dead I draw the line.

Chorus

 

How I missed her, how I missed her,

how I missed my Clementine,

Until I kissed her little sister,

and forgot my Clementine.

Chorus

 

COUNTRY ROAD

Almost heaven, West Virginia,

Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River

Life is older here, older than the trees

Younger than the mountains, growing like a breeze

 

Chorus

Country road, take me home

To the place I belong

West Virginia, Mountain Mama

Take me home, country roads

 

All my memories gather round her,

Miners lady, stranger to blue water,

Dark and dusty painted on the sky,

Misty taste of mountains, teardrop in my eye

Chorus

 

I hear a voice in the morning, how she calls me

Radio reminds me of my home far away

Driving down the road I get the feeling

that I should have been home yesterday, yesterday

Chorus

 

Found a Peanut

Found a peanut, found a peanut,
Found a peanut last night.
Last night, I found a peanut.
Found a peanut last night.

Broke it open, broke it open,
Broke it open last night.
Last night, I broke it open.
Broke it open last night.

Found it rotten, found it rotten,
Found it rotten last night.
Last night, I found it rotten.
Found it rotten last night.

Ate it anyway, ate it anyway,

Last night, I ate it anyway.
Ate it anyway last night.

Got a tummyache, got a tummyache,
Got a tummyache last night.
Last night, I got a tummyache.
Got a tummyache last night.

Greensleeves

Alas, my love, you do me wrong
To cast me off discourteously,
And I have lovéd you so long,
Delighting in your company.

Chorus:
Greensleeves was all my joy.
Greensleeves was my delight.
Greensleeves was my heart of gold,
And who but my Lady Greensleeves.

I have been ready at your hand
To grant whatever you would crave.
I have both wagéd life and land,
Your love and goodwill for to have.

I bought thee petticoats of the best,
The cloth so fine as might be.
I gave thee jewels for thy chest,
And all this cost I spent on thee.

 

HOME ON THE RANGE

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.

CHORUS
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.

Where the air is so pure, and the zephyrs so free,
The breezes so balmy and light,
That i would not exchange my home on the range,
For all of the cities so bright.

The Red man was pressed from this part of the west,
He's likely no more to return,
To the banks of the Red River where seldom if ever
Their flickering campfires burn.

 

Old Smokey

On top of Old Smokey
All covered with snow
I lost my true lover
For a courting too slow

For courting is a pleasure
And parting is grief
And a false hearted lover
Is worse than a thief

A thief will just rob you
And take all you have
But a false hearted lover
Will lead you to the grave

The grave will decay you
And turn you to dust
Not one boy in a hundred
A poor girl can trust

They'll hug you and kiss you
And tell you more lies
Than cross-ties on a railroad
Or stars in the sky

So come all young maidens
And listen to me
Never place your affections
On a green willow tree

The roots they will wither
The leaves they will die
You'll all be forsaken
And never know why

On Top of Spaghetti

(to the tune of "On Top of Old Smokey")

On top of spaghetti, all covered with cheese,
I lost my poor meatball when somebody sneezed.
It rolled off the table and onto the floor,
And then my poor meatball rolled out of the door.
It rolled through the garden and under a bush,
And then my poor meatball was nothing but mush.
The mush was as fertile, as fertile could be,
And later that summer, there sprouted a tree.
The tree was all covered with beautiful moss,
And on it grew meatballs in tomato sauce.

 

The Unicorn

A long time ago when the earth was green
There was more kinds of animals
Than you've ever seen
They'd run around free
When the earth was being born
But the loveliest of them all was the Unicorn

There was green alligators
And long-necked geese
Some humpy-backed camels
And some chimpanzees
Some cats and rats and elephants
But sure as you're born
The lovliest of all was the Unicorn

Now God seen some sinnin'
And it gave him pain
And he says, "Stand back,
I'm going to make it rain."
He says, "Brother Noah
I'll tell you what to do
Build me a floating zoo, and
Take some of them..."

Green alligators
And long-necked geese
Some humpy-backed camels
And some chimpanzees
Some cats and rats and elephants
But sure as you're born
Don't you forget my Unicorn

Old Noah was there to answer the call
He finished makin' the Ark
Just as the rain started fallin'
And he called out
As they went through,
"Hey Lord, I got you..."

Green alligators
And long-necked geese
Some humpy-backed camels
And some chimpanzees
Some cats and rats and elephants
But Lord I'm so forlorn
I just can't see no Unicorns

Then Noah looked out
Through the driving rain
Them Unicorns were hiding
Playin' silly games
Kickin' and splashin'
When the rain was pourin'
Oh, them silly Unicorns

There was green alligators
And long-necked geese
Some humpy-backed camels
And some chimpanzees
Noah cried "Close the door
'cuz the rain is pourin'
And we just can't wait for no Unicorns."

The Ark started movin'
It drifted with the tide
Them Unicorns looked up
From the rocks and they cried
And the waters came down
And sort of floated them away
And that's why you've never seen
A Unicorn to this very day

You'll see some green alligators
And long-necked geese
Some humpy-backed camels
And some chimpanzees
Some cats and rats and elephants
But as sure as you're born
You're never gonna see no Unicorns

 

Turkey in the Straw

Oh, as I was a goin' down the road,
With a tired team and a heavy load,
I cracked my whip and leader sprung,
I says good-day to the wagon tongue.

Chorus:
Turkey in the straw, turkey in the hay,
Turkey in the straw, turkey in the hay,
Roll 'em up and twist 'em up a high tuckahaw,
And play a little tune called 'Turkey in the Straw.'
Oh, I jumped in the seat, and I gave a little yell,
The horses ran away, broke the wagon all to hell,
Sugar in the gourd and honey in the horn,
I never been so happy since the day I was born.

Oh, I went out to milk, and I didn't know how,
I milked the goat instead of the cow.
A monkey sittin' on a pile of straw,
A-winkin' his eyes at his mother-in-law.

Well, I met Mr. Catfish comin' down stream,
Says Mr. Catfish, "What do you mean?"
I caught Mr. Catfish by the snout,
And I turned Mr. Catfish wrong side out.

Well, I came to a river and I couldn't get across,
So I paid five dollars for a blind old hoss;
He wouldn't go ahead, and he wouldn't stand still,
So we went up and down like an old saw mill.

As I came down the new cut road,
I met Mr. Bullfrog, I met Miss Toad,
And every time Miss Toad would sing,
Old Bullfrog cut a pigeon wing.

Oh, I had an old hen and she had a wooden leg,
She was the best darn hen that ever laid an egg;
She laid more eggs than any hen on the farm,
And a little competition didn't do her any harm.

Well, if frogs had wings and snakes had hair
And automobiles went flying through the air;
Well, if watermelons grew on a huckleberry vine,
We'd all have winter in the summertime.

 

WALTZING MATILDA

Once a jolly swagman camped beside a billabong,
Under the shade of a coolibah tree,
And he sang as he sat and waited while his billy boiled,
"Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me?

CHORUS
Waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda,
Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me?
And he sang as he sat and waited while his billy boiled,
Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me?"

Down came a jumpbuck to drink at the billabong,
Up jumped the swagman and grabbed him with glee,
And he sang as he stowed that jumback in his tuckerbag,
"Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me?"

Up came the squatter, mounted on his thoroughbred
Down came the troopers - one, two, three,
"Where's that jolly jumpbuck you've got in your tuckerbag?
You'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me"

Up jumped the swagman and sprang into the billabong,
"You'll never take me alive!", said he.
And his ghost may be heard as you pass beside that billabong,
"Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me?"
