It's raining; it's pouring.
The old man is snoring.
He went to bed and bumped his head,
And he couldn't get up in the morning

A Tisket, A Tasket

A-tisket, a-tasket,
A green and yellow basket.
I wrote a letter to my love,
And on the way I dropped it.

I dropped it, I dropped it,
And, on the way I dropped it.
A little boy picked it up,
And put it in his pocket
                                8
  Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes
Head and shoulders, knees and toes, knees and toes,
Head and shoulders, knees and toes, knees and toes,
And eyes and ears and mouth and nose,
Head shoulders, knees and toes, knees and toes.

 Ella Fitzgerald - A-Tisket, A-Tasket
A tisket a tasket, a brown and yellow basket
I sent a letter to my mommy,
on the way I dropped it
I dropped it, I dropped it,
yes on the way I dropped it
A little girly picked it up
and put it in her pocket
She was trucking on down the avenue
with not a single thing to do
She went pick, pick, picking all around
when she spied it on the ground
                                               12
She took it, she took it, my little yellow basket
and if she doesn't bring it back
I think that I will die
A tisket a tasket, I lost my yellow basket
and if that girly don’t return it
I don’t know what I’ll do
Oh dear I wonder where my basket can be?
(so do we, so do we, so do we)
Oh gee! I wish that little girl I could see.
(so do we, so do we, so do we)
                                               13
Oh why was i so careless
with that basket of mine?
That itty bitty basket was a joy of mine
A tisket, a tasket I lost my yellow basket
Won’t someone help me find my basket
And make me happy again
(Was it green?) No no no no
(Was it red?) No no no no
(Was it blue?) No no no no
Just a little yellow basket
A little yellow basket

Summertime – George Gershwin

  Summertime,
  And the livin' is easy
  Fish are jumpin'
  And the cotton is high
  Oh, Your daddy's rich
  And your mamma's good lookin'
  So hush little baby
  Don't you cry
  One of these mornings
  You're going to rise up singing
  Then you'll spread your wings
  And you'll take to the sky
  But until that morning
  There's a'nothing can harm you
  With your daddy and mammy standing by
  Summertime,
  And the livin' is easy
  Fish are jumpin'
  And the cotton is high
  Your daddy's rich
  And your mamma's good lookin'
  So hush little baby
  Don't you cry                           15

                              Donovan - Colours
Yellow is the colour of my true love's hair,   Mellow is the feeling that I get,
In the morning, when we rise,                  When I see her, m-hmm,
In the morning, when we rise.                  When I see her, oh yeah.
That's the time, that's the time,              That's the time, that's the time,
I love the best.
                                               I love the best.
Blue is the colour of the sky,
In the morning, when we rise,                  Freedom is a word I rarely use,
In the morning, when we rise.                  Without thinking, m-hmm,
That's the time, that's the time,              Without thinking, oh yeah.
I love the best.                               Of the time, of the time,
                                               When I've been loved.
Green is the colour of the sparkling corn,
In the morning, when we rise,
In the morning, when we rise.
That's the time, that's the time,
I love the best.

                  Suppertime by Johnny Cash

Many years ago in days of childhood I used to play till evening time would come
Still winding down that old familiar pathway I hear my mother call at setting sun
Come home come home it's suppertime the shadows lengthen fast
Come home come home it's suppertime we're going home at last

Some of the fondest memories of my childhood are woven around suppertime
When mother used to call from the back steps of the old home place
Come on home now son it's suppertime my how I'd love to hear that once again
But you know time has woven for me a realization of truth that's even more thrilling
That someday we'll be called up to gather around the supper table up there
For the greatest suppertime of them all with our Lord
I can almost hear the call now coming from the portals of heaven

Come home son it's suppertime come on home
Come home come home...

Come home come home it's suppertime the shadows lengthen so fast
Come home come home it's suppertime we're going home at last


                                                                                9

             500 Miles - Peter, Paul & Mary
If you miss the train I’m on, you will know that I am gone
You can hear the whistle blow a hundred miles,
A hundred miles, a hundred miles, a hundred miles, a hundred miles,
You can hear the whistle blow a hundred miles.

Lord I’m one, lord I’m two, lord I’m three, lord I’m four,
Lord I’m 500 miles from my home.
500 miles, 500 miles, 500 miles, 500 miles
Lord I’m five hundred miles from my home.

Not a shirt on my back, not a penny to my name
Lord I can’t go home this way
This way, this way, this way, this way,
Lord I can’t go home this way.

If you miss the train I’m on you will know that I am gone
You can hear the whistle blow a hundred miles.

                                                                      22
