It's raining; it's pouring
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

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

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

Let's Call the Whole Thing Off
Things have come to a pretty pass
Our romance is growing flat,
For you like this and the other
While I go for this and that,
Goodness knows what the end will be
Oh I don't know where I'm at
It looks as if we two will never be one
Something must be done:
You say either and I say either,
You say neither and I say neither
Either, either neither, neither
Let's call the whole thing off.
You like potato and I like potahto
You like tomato and I like tomahto
Potato, potahto, tomato, tomahto.
Let's call the whole thing off
But oh, if we call the whole thing off
Then we must part
And oh, if we ever part, then that might
break my heart
So if you like pyjamas and I like
pyjahmas,
I'll wear pyjamas and give up pyajahmas
For we know we need each other so we
Better call the whole thing off
Let's call the whole thing off.
You say laughter and I say larfter
You say after and I say arfter
Laughter, larfter after arfter
Let's call the whole thing off,
You like vanilla and I like vanella
You saspiralla, and I saspirella
Vanilla vanella chocolate strawberry
Let's call the whole thing off

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

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.
