Down by the Bay

Down by the bay,
Where the watermelons grow.
Back to my home,
I dare not go.
Cause if I do,
My mother will say,
"Did you ever see a bear combing his hair?"
Down by the bay.

The Animal Fair

I went to the Animal Fair
The birds and 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 that was too bad for the monk
The monk, the monk, the monk,

The Duke of York

Grand Old Duke of York
Oh, the grand old Duke of York,
He had ten thousand men,
He marched them up to the top of
The hill and he marched
Them down again.
And when they were up they were up.
And when they were down they were down.
And when they were only half way up,
They were neither up nor down.

The bear went over the mountain,
The bear went over the mountain,
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

One, two, three, four, five
One, two, three, four, five,
Once I caught a fish alive.
Six, seven, eight, nine, ten,
Then I let it go again.
Why did you let it go?
Because it bit my finger so.
Which finger did it bite?
This little finger on my right.

Old King Cole

Old king Cole
Was a merry old soul
And a merry old soul was he.
He called for his pipe and he called for his bowl
And he called for his fiddlers three.
And every fiddler had a fine fiddle
and a very fine fiddle had he.
There’s none so rear as can compare
with a king and his fiddlers three.

Miss Polly had a Dolly

 Miss Polly had a dolly
Who was sick, sick, sick,
So she called for the doctor
To be quick, quick, quick;
The doctor came
With his bag and his hat,
And he knocked at the door
With a rat-a-tat-tat.

He looked at the dolly
And he shook his head,
And he said "Miss Polly,
Put her straight to bed."
He wrote out a paper
For a pill, pill, pill,
"That'll make her better,
Yes it will, will, will!"

How They Walk Walk Walk
All the lovely little puppets

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

Kumbaya

Kumbaya my lord, kumbaya
Kumbaya my lord, kumbaya
Kumbaya my lord, kumbaya
Oh lord, kumbaya.

For the sun that rises in the sky,
For the rhythm of the falling rain
For all life big or small
For all that’s true, for all you do.

Kumbaya my lord, kumbaya
Kumbaya my lord, kumbaya
Kumbaya my lord, kumbaya
Oh lord, kumbaya.

For one second on this world you made,
For the love that will never fade,
For a heart, filled with joy,
For all that’s real, for all we feel.

Kumbaya my lord, kumbaya
Kumbaya my lord, kumbaya
Kumbaya my lord, kumbaya
Oh lord, kumbaya.
