OH SUSANA (3rd)

(Boys Sing/Girls Play)

Well I come from Alabama with a banjo on my knee,

I'm going to Louisiana, my true love forto see

Oh, Susanna, don't you cry for me

I come from Alabama

With my banjo on my knee.

 

(GIRLS SING/BOYS PLAY)

Oh I come from Salem city with my washboard on my knee

I’m goin to Cal-i-for-ni-a the gold dust for to see

Oh California that’s the land for me,

I’m bound for San Francisco with a washboard on my knee

 

(Audience sing)

It rained all night the day I left

The weather it was dry

The sun so hot, I froze to death

Oh Brothers don’t you cry

Oh California that’s the land for me,

I’m bound for San Francisco with a washboard on my knee

Best of Friends – 3rd

MP3: /files/user/62/file/13%20Best%20Of%20Friends.mp3

When you're the best of friends
Having so much fun together
You're not even aware, you're such a funny pair
You're the best of friends

Life's a happy game
You could clown around forever
Neither one of you sees your natural boundaries
Life's one happy game

If only the world wouldn't get in the way
If only people would just let you play
They say you're both being fools
You're breaking all the rules
They can't understand the magic wonderland


When you're the best of friends
Having so much fun together
You're not even aware, you're such a funny pair
You're the best of friends

Life's a happy game
You could clown around forever
Neither one of you sees your natural boundaries
Life's one happy game

If only the world wouldn't get in the way
If only people would just let you play
They say you're both being fools
You're breaking all the rules
They can't understand the magic wonderland

When you're the best of friends
Sharing all that you discover
When these moments have passed, will that friendship last?
Who can say if there's a way?
Oh I hope . . . I hope it never ends
'Cause you're the best of friends

EXTRA Songs we are learning:

THE STAR-SPANGLED BANNER

Oh, say can you see by the dawn's early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
