Gatherings...
 
Every Song We Knew

Gatherings down by a table and a picnic bench
And Tom's ol' white washed picket fence
Kids scattered hap hazard all over the place ...
... singin' out ev~er~y song we knew...

'Yellow Bird'... high up in a tree ... rounds of 'Row Row Your Boat'
Pay no mind to who is singing off~key...
...we're doin' our best ... just hittin' them notes!

'She'll Be Comin' Round the Mountain', when she comes,
'This Old Man' ... is a knick~a~knackin' on our thumbs
On a scorchin' hot humid summer day,
foots a~tappin' in a sing~song jambor~ay... Hey!

'Frere Jacques' ... 'Skip To my Lou' ...
'Down By The Bay' where the nights are gay
'On Top Of Spaghetti' ... all covered with cheese ...
... ready set go ...
... everybody SNEEZE!
'ah...Ah...AH ...... CHOOOOOOO!!!!

Oh 'An Ant Can't Move A Rubber Tree Plant' ...
... so...
'The Ants Come Marchin' In'
'Kum By Ya Lord' ... come by here ...
'He's Got the Whole World in His Hands!'

'Yellow Bird'... high up in a tree ... rounds of 'Row Row Your Boat'
Pay no mind to who is singing off~key...
... we're doin' our best ...just hittin' them notes!

Gatherings down by a table and a picnic bench
And Tom's ol' white washed picket fence
Kids scattered hap hazard all over the place,
singin' out ev~er~y song we knew...
