Baby Beluga
Baby beluga in the deep blue sea,
Swim so wild and you swim so free.
Heaven about you, sea below,
Just a little white whale on the go.

 

Baby beluga, baby beluga, is the water warm?
Is your mother home with you, so happy.

Way down yonder where the dolphins play,
Where they dive and splash all day,
The waves roll in and the waves roll out,
See the water squirting out of your spout.

 

Baby beluga, baby beluga, sing your little song,
Sing for all your friends, we like to hear you.

When it's late and you're home and fed,
Curling up snug in your waterbed.
Stars are shining and the moon is bright,
Good night, little whale, goodnight.

 

Baby beluga, baby beluga, with tomorrow's sun,
Another day has come, you'll soon be waking.

Baby beluga, baby beluga, is the water warm?
Is your mother home with you, so happy.

 

Actions: hands together, make the shape of a small whale jumping over the waves.

 

Back of the Bread
Back of the bread is the flour,
And back of the flour is the mill,
And back of the mill is the wind and the rain,
And the Father's will.

 

Barges

Chorus:
Barges, I would like to go with you,
I would like to sail the ocean blue.
Barges, have you treasures in your hold?
Do you fight with pirates brave and bold?

 

Out of my window looking in the night,
I can see the barges' flickering light.
Silently flows the river to the sea,
And the barges too go silently.

 

Out of my window looking in the night,
I can see the barges' flickering light.
Starboard shines green and port is glowing red,
You can see them flickering far ahead.

 

Battle Hymn
Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the lord,
He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored,
He has loosed the fateful lightning of his terrible swift sword,
His truth is marching on!

 

Chorus:

Glory, glory, Hallelujah!
Glory, glory, Hallelujah!
Glory, glory, Hallelujah!
His truth is marching on

 

I have seen him in the watchfires of a hundred circling camps,
Thy have builded him an altar in the evening dews and damps,
I have read his righteous sentence in the dim of flaring lamps,
His day is marching on!

 

Bear Song
The other day
I saw a bear
Out in the woods
Oh way out there

 

He looked at me
I looked at him
He smiled at me
I smiled at him

 

He said to me
Why don't you run
I see you ain't
Got any gun

 

I said to him
That's a good idea
So come on feet
Lets up and flee

 

And so I ran
Away from there
But right behind
Me came that bear

 

And then I saw
Ahead of me
A great big tree
O mercy me

 

The lowest branch
Was ten feet up
I'd have to jump
And trust my luck

 

And so I jumped
Into the air
But I missed that branch
O way up there

 

Now don't you fret
And don't you frown
Cause I caught that branch
On the way back down

 

That is the end
There ain't no more
Unless I meet
That bear once more

 

(When you sing this, one group/person sings each line and the rest repeat. When all 4 are sung, then all sing all 4 together)

 

Bear Went Over the Mountain
The bear went over the mountain
The bear went over the mountain
The bear went over the mountain
To see what he could see

 

He saw a troop of Brownies
He saw a troop of Brownies
He saw a troop of Brownies
Yes that's what he did see

 

He ate up all the Brownies
He ate up all the Brownies
He ate up all the Brownies
Yes that's what he did do

 

They gave him indigestion
They gave him indigestion
They gave him indigestion
Yes that's what they did do

 

He took some Alka Seltzer
He took some Alka Seltzer
He took some Alka Seltzer
Yes that's what he did do

 

He burped up all the Brownies
He burped up all the Brownies
He burped up all the Brownies
Yes that's what he did do

 

He never went over the mountain
He never went over the mountain
He never went over the mountain
To see what he could see

 

Be Kind to Your Web-Footed Friends
Be kind to your web-footed friends.
For a duck may be somebody's mother.
Be kind to your friends in the swamp,
Where the weather is always damp.
You may think that this is the end.
Well it is!

 

Billboard Song
As I was walking down the street one dark and gloomy day,
I came upon a billboard, and much to my dismay,
The sign was torn and tattered from the rain the night before,
The wind and rain had done its job and this is what I saw:
Smoke Coca-cola cigarettes, chew Wrigley's spearmint beer,
Ken-L dog food makes your complexion clear,
Simonize your baby with a Hershey's candy bar
And Texaco's the beauty cream that's used by all the stars.
So, take your next vacation in a brand new frigidaire,
Learn to play the piano in your winter underwear,
Doctors say that babies should smoke until they're three
And people over sixty-five should bathe in Lipton tea,
With flow through teabags.

 

Black Socks
Black Socks, they never get dirty,
The longer you wear them the stronger they get!
Someday I think I might wash them,
But something keeps telling me,
Don't wash them yet
(not yet, not yet...)

 

Blowin' in the Wind

(Bob Dylan)
How many roads must a man walk down before you call him a man?
How many seas must a white dove sail before she sleeps in the sand?
How many times must the cannonballs fly before they're forever banned?

 

Chorus:
The answer my friend is blowin' in the wind,
The answer is blowin' in the wind.

 

How many years must a mountain exist before it is washed to the sea?
How many years must some people exist before they're allowed to be free?
How many times can a man turn his head and pretend he just doesn't see?

 

How many times must a man look up before he can see the sky?
How many ears must one man have before he can hear people cry?
How many deaths will it take till he knows that too many people have died?

 

Boa Constrictor
Oh, I'm being swallowed by a boa constrictor,
I'm being swallowed by a boa constrictor,
I'm being swallowed by a boa constrictor,
And I don't like it very much.

Oh no, oh no,
It's nibblin' my toe, it's nibblin' my toe.

Oh gee, oh gee,
It's up to my knee, it's up to my knee.

Oh my, Oh my,
It's up to my thigh, it's up to my thigh.

Oh fiddle, oh fiddle,
It's reached my middle, it's reached my middle.

Oh heck, oh heck,
It's up to my neck, it's up to my neck.

Oh dread, oh dread,
It's up mmffghmf. . .

 

Boogie Woogie Washer Woman
Way down the road where nobody goes,

   (Shade hand over eyes, shake finger "no")
There's a boogie-woogie washer woman washing her clothes

   (Do the boogie),
Scrub, scrub, here, scrub, scrub, there  

   (Scrub one knee, scrub other knee),
Scrub those stains right out of there!   (Scrub to the beat)
She goes: scrub, scrub, 

  (Scrub one knee, then other, walking forward one step each time)
a-boogie, a-woogie    

   (Do the boogie, taking two steps backward),
Scrub, scrub and a-boogie some more  

   (Repeat action of a-boogie, a-woogie)
She goes: scrub, scrub, a-boogie, a-woogie,   (Repeat action)
Just a boogie-woogie washer woman washing her clothes! Yeah! (Boogie, turning in circle)

 

Boom Chicka Boom
I said a boom chicka boom,
I said a boom chicka boom,
I said a boom chicka rocka chicka rocka chicka boom.
Uh- huh,
Oh yeah,
One more time,
A little bit faster (do next verse faster)

 

A little bit slower (do next verse slower)
A little bit softer (do next verse softer)
A little bit louder (do next verse louder)
Valley girl style (put "like" in front of "a," and "lika" after the "chicka" in the long line)
Maid style (boom = broom, rocka= mopa. Pretend to sweep/mop when you say it)
Underwater style (do it while moving your finger up and down on your lips)

 

Boom De a Da
I love the mountains,
I love the rolling hills,
I love the flowers,
I love the daffodils,
I love the fireside,
When all the lights are low,
Boom de a da, boom de a da, boom de a da, boom de a da

(You can split into two groups and have one group do the boom de a das while the other group does the words)

 

Bridge Over Troubled Water

(Simon and Garfunkel)
When you're weary, feeling small, when tears are in your eyes,
I'll dry them all
I'm on your side, oh, when times get rough, and friends just can't be found,


Like a bridge over troubled water, I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water, I will lay me down

 

When you're down and out, when you're on the street,
When evening falls so hard, I will comfort you.
I'll take your part, oh, when darkness comes, and pain is all around


Like a bridge over troubled water, I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water, I will lay me down

 

Sail on silver girl, sail on by, your time has come to shine
All your dreams are on their way. See how they shine
If you need a friend, I'm sailing right behind,


Like a bridge over troubled water, I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water, I will lay me down

 

Bring Me a Rose
Bring me a rose in the wintertime, when they're hard to find
Bring me a rose in the wintertime, I've got roses on my mind
A rose is sweet most anytime and yet,
Bring me a rose in the wintertime, Oh how easy we forget

 

Friend when I'm all alone
Peace when there's talk of war
Strength when I'm far from God
Love an a world of hat
Smile when I'm far from home
Camp in the wintertime
Rose when they're hard to find

 

Brownie Smile Song
I've got something in my pocket that belongs across my face.

    (Pat pocket, wipe hand across face)

I keep it very close to me in a most convenient place.           

    (Pat pocket seven times)
I bet you'll never guess it if you guess a long, long while      

    (Shake finger 4X, tap wrist 3X)
So I'll take it out and I'll put it on,                                          

    (Take out of pocket, wipe face)
It's a great big Brownie smile.                                               

    (Smile and point to smile)

 

Bubblegum
My mom gave me a penny
She said go buy a henny
But I didn't buy a henny
Instead, I bought bubble gum  (Clap hands together over head, keep them together)
Bazooka zooka bubble gum  (Move head around, keep hands over head)
Bazooka zooka bubble gum

 

My mom gave me a nickel
She said go buy a pickle
But I didn't buy a pickle
Instead, I bought bubble gum
Bazooka zooka bubble gum
Bazooka zooka bubble gum

 

My mom gave me a dime
She said go buy a lime
But I didn't buy a lime
Instead, I bought bubble gum
Bazooka zooka bubble gum
Bazooka zooka bubble gum

 

My mom gave me a quarter
She said go buy some water
But I didn't buy some water
Instead, I bought bubble gum
Bazooka zooka bubble gum
Bazooka zooka bubble gum

 

My mom gave me a dollar
She said go buy a collar
But I didn't buy a collar
Instead, I bought bubble gum
Bazooka zooka bubble gum
Bazooka zooka bubble gum

 

My mom gave me a five
She said to stay alive
But I didn't stay alive
Instead, I choked on bubblegum
Bazooka zooka bubble gum
Bazooka zooka bubble gum

 

Bumblebee
I'm bringing home a baby bumblebee,           (Hands cupped together)
Won't my mommy be so proud of me?
I'm bringing home a baby bumblebee,
Ouch! It stung me!                                         (Hands apart suddenly)

 

Squishing up. . . Ew! It's all over me!             (Squish hands together... look at hands)
Licking up. . . Oh! I don't feel so good!           (Pretend lick hands... hold stomach)
Throwing up. . . Ew! It's all over the floor!     (Pretend throw up... point to floor)
Sweeping up. . . All gone!                               (Pretend sweep... hands apart)
Time to get a new one!
