                MISSISSIPPI MUD

             By Barris & Cavanaugh

 

Sun goes down, moon comes out,

People gather Ďround and they all begin to shout:

ďHey, hey, whatdaya say?Ē

Itís a treat to beat your feet on the Mississippi mud!

Itís a treat to beat your feet on the Mississippi mud!

 

What a dance do they do

Lordie how Iím telling you.

They donít need no band. 

They keep time by clapping their hands.

Happy as a cow chewing on his cud.

Itís a treat to beat your feet on the Mississippi mud!

Itís a treat (clap clap), itís a treat (clap clap)

Itís a treat to beat your feet on the Mississippi mud!

 

 

 
               MISTER MOON

 

ĎTwas on a summerís evening we walked the forest through

When suddenly we heard it, the sweet and low cuckoo.

Cuckoo, cuckoo, cuckoo, cuckoo.

Cuckoo, cuckoo, cuckoo, cuckoo.

 

Mr. Moon, Mr. Moon, youíre out too soon.

The sun is still in the sky.

Go back to bed and cover up your head,

And wait till the day goes buy.

 

(Sing as round.)


 


                MOONLIGHT BAY

             By Madden & Wenrich

 

We were sailing along on Moonlight Bay.

You could hear the campers singing, ba ba ba ba bamb.

They seemed to sayÖWhatíd they say this time?

ďYou have stolen my heart and my sweatshirt, too

Now donít go away.  Donít worry Iíll stay.Ē

As we sang those love songs on Moonlight Bay, on Moonlight Bay.

 

 

  
              MOUNTAIN DEW

 

My Uncle Billís got a still on the hill

Where he brews up a gallon or two.

And the birds in the sky get so drunk they canít fly

From that good olí Mountain Dew.

 

Chorus:                 They call it that good olí Mountain Dew, Dew, Dew

                                And them that refuse are few (mighty few!)

                                Well, Iíll hush up my mug if you fill up my jug

                                With that good olí Mountain Dew!

 

My Uncle Mortís kinda sawed off and short

And he measures Ďbout four foot two.

But he feels mighty big when you give him a swig

Of that good olí Mountain Dew.

 

Repeat chorus.

 

My sister Sal was a big city gal.

I got her some store-bought perfume.

Imagine her surprise when she had it analyzed:

It was good olí Mountain Dew.

 

Repeat chorus.

 

The preacher came by with a tear in his eye.

He said that his wife had the flu.

We told him he ought to give her a quart

Of that good olí Mountain Dew.

 

Repeat chorus.

 

 

 
               MUSIC ALONE SHALL LIVE

 

All things shall perish from under the sky.

Music alone shall live, music alone shall live,

Music alone shall live, never to die.

 

 


                MY BONNIE LIES OVER THE OCEAN

                   By Wood & Fulmer

 

My Bonnie lies over the ocean.

My Bonnie lies over the sea.

Oh, bring back my Bonnie to me.

 

 


                MY LOVER AND I

 

My lover and I sailed over the sea  (boom, boom, boom, boom)

In search of a love that never could be  (boom, boom, boom, boom)

The wind in the sails of our tiny boat said no, no-oo-oo-oo no-oo-oo-oo

 

We sailed and we sailed for many a day  (boom, boom, boom, boom)

We sighted a shore, decided to stay  (boom, boom, boom, boom)

The wind in the sails of our tiny boat boat said no, no-oo-oo-oo no-oo-oo-oo

 

Now Iím all alone on this lonely sea  (boom, boom, boom, boom)

No place to go but eternity  (boom, boom, boom, boom)

My lover is gone and I miss him so, oh, I miss him so,

Without a lover am I.  Without a lover am I!

 

 


                MY OLD MAN

 

My old manís a sailor.  What do you think of that?

He wears a sailorís collar, he wears a sailorís hat.

He wears a sailorís raincoat, he wears a sailorís shoes.

And every Saturday evening, he reads the Sunday news.

And someday if I can

Iím gonna be a sailor, same as my old man.

 

Sing two more times replacing ďsailorĒ with ďrefrigerator repairmanĒ

And ďcotton-pickiní finger-lickiní chicken plucker.Ē

 

 


                MY TALL SILK HAT

 

One day I took a ride upon a subway.

My tall silk hat, my tall silk hat.

I laid it down upon the seat beside me.

My tall silk hat, my tall silk hat.

 

A big fat lady came and sat upon it!

My small silk hat, my small silk hat!

A big fat lady came and sat upon it!

My small silk hat, it looked like that!

 

Christopher Columbo, what do you think of that?

A big fat lady sat upon my hat.

My hat she broke, it was no joke.

My hat she broke, it was no joke.

Christopher Columbo, what do you think of that?
