StarTreckin'

This song tells a story, so it's very important that the characters are ALL represented in this order. Mister Sulu is at the helm, Lt. Uhura monitoring the sensors, Spock is turned to for analysis, Dr. McCoy is asked "Is it Radiation, Dr. McCoy? we then turn to the engineer, Mr. Scott for more power, and finally Captain James Tiberius Kirk is forced to lead a landing party. Before beginning, the audience is divided into six sections, one for each character.

Chorus: Star Trekkin' across the universe, on the Starship Enterprise, under Captain Kirk. Star Trekkin' across the Universe, Always goin' forward, 'cause we can't find reverse!

Mr. Sulu: The Enterprise is slowing down, slowing down, slowing down. The Enterprise is slowing down, slowing down, Jim!

Lt. Uhura: There's Klingons on the starboard bow, Starboard bow, starboard bow. There's Klingons on the starboard bow, starboard bow, Jim!

Mr. Spock: It's life Jim, but not as we know it, not as we know it, not as we know it. It's life Jim, but not as we know it, not as we know it, Captain.

Dr. McCoy: It's worse than that, he's dead, Jim. dead, Jim, dead Jim. It's worse than that, he's dead, Jim. Dead, Jim, dead!

Engineer Scott: (In your best Scottish accent) You cannot change the laws of physics, laws of physics, laws of physics. You cannot change the laws of physics, laws of physics, Jim!

Captain Kirk: We Come in Peace (shoot to kill!) Shoot to kill, shoot to kill. We Come in Peace (shoot to kill!) Shoot to kill, men!

BATTLE CRY OF FREEDOMReturn To Song Menu

(To the tune of George Root's Battle Cry of Freedom)

Mary had a little lamb, It's fleece was white as snow, Shouting out the battle cry of freedom. And everywhere that Mary went, the lamb was sure to go, Shouting out the battle cry of freedom.

Chorus: Hurrah for Mary, hurrah for the lamb, Hurrah for the teacher, who didn't give a particle, If all the lambs in Oregon came marching into school, Shouting out the battle cry of freedom. Chorus

Mary had a little lamb, it's fleece was black as soot, Shouting out the battle cry of freedom. And everywhere that Mary went, it's sooty foot he put, Shouting out the battle cry of freedom. Chorus

Mary had a little lamb, she put it on the shelf, Shouting out the battle cry of freedom. And every time it wagged it's tail it spanked it's little self, Shouting out the battle cry of freedom. Chorus

Mary had a little lamb, she tied it in the closet, Shouting out the battle cry of freedom. And every time it turned around, it left a little deposit, Shouting out the battle cry of freedom. Chorus

Mary had a little lamb, she tied it to the heater, Shouting out the battle cry of freedom. And every time it turned around, it burned it's little seater, Shouting out the battle cry of freedom. Chorus

Mary had a little lamb, you've heard this tale before, Shouting out the battle cry of freedom. But have you heard she passed the plate and had a little more, Shouting out the battle cry of freedom. Chorus

SLOWER: Mary had a little lamb, but now the lamb is dead, Shouting out the battle cry of freedom. Poor Mary takes the lamb to school, between two hunks of bread, Shouting out the battle cry of freedom.

SCOUT VESPERS=

Softly falls the light of day,
As our campfire fades away.
Silently each Scout should ask,
"Have I done my daily task?
Have I kept my honor bright?
Can I guiltless sleep tonight?
Have I done and have I dared,
Everything to be Prepared?"

Listen Lord, oh listen Lord,
As I whisper soft and low.
Bless my mom and Bless my dad,
These are things that they should know.
I will keep my honor Bright,
The oath and law will be my guide.
And mom and dad this you should know,
Deep in my heart I love you so.

AMAZING GRACE (John Newton)Return To Song Menu

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.

'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears relieved;
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed!

Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come;
'Tis grace has brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.

It made my wounded spirit whole,
And calmed my troubled mind,
It's living food for many a soul,
That weary men may find.

The Lord has promised good to me;
His Word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be
As long as life endures.

When we've been gone ten thousand years,
Bright shining as the sun;
We've no less days, to sing God's praise
Than when we'd first begun.

THE BATTLE OF NEW ORLEANS

1) In 1814 we took a little trip, Along with Colonel Jackson down the mighty Mississipp 'We took a little bacon and we took a little beans, And we met the bloody British near the town of New Orleans.

Chorus: We fired our guns and the British kept a comin'.There wasn't nigh as many as they was a while ago. We fired once more and they begin to runnin',On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.

2) We looked down the river and we see'd the British come...There must have been a hundred of 'em beatin' on the drum. They stepped so high and they made their bugles ring; While we stood beside our cotton bales and didn't say a thing.

Chorus

3) Old Hickory said we could take 'em by surprise. If we didn't fire a musket till we looked 'em in the eyes. We held our fire till we see'd their faces well; Then we opened up our squirrel guns and really gave 'em--Well.

Chorus

4) They ran through the briars and they ran through the brambles, And they ran through the bushes where a rabbit couldn't go. They ran so fast that the hounds couldn't catch 'em, On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico. Chorus

5)We fired our cannon till the barrel melted down, So we grabbed an alligator and we poured an other round. We put the ball between his teeth and powdered his behind, And when we touched the powder off the 'gator lost his mind.
Chorus

6) They ran through the briars and they ran through the brambles, And they ran through the bushes where a rabbit couldn't go. They ran so fast that the hounds couldn't catch 'demon down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.

On Top Of SpaghettiReturn To Song Menu

On top of spaghetti
All covered in cheese
I lost my poor meatball
When somebody sneezed.

It rolled off the table
And onto the floor
And then my poor meatball
Rolled out of the door.

It rolled in the garden
And under a bush
And then my poor meatball
Was nothing but mush.

The mush was as tasty
As tasty could be
And then the next summer
It grew into a tree.

The tree was all covered
All covered with moss
And on it grew meatballs
And tomato sauce

So if you eat spaghetti
All covered in cheese
Hold on to your meatballs
Lest somebody sneeze.

Ezekiel Saw a Wheel

Ezekiel Saw a Wheel a rolling
Way in the middle of the air
A wheel within a wheel a rolling
Way in the middle of the air
And the big wheel ran by Faith
And the little wheel ran by the grace of God
Ezekiel Saw a Wheel a rolling
Way in the middle of the air

Ezekiel heard a bell a tolling …

Ezekiel saw a fire a burning …

Oh come and go with me
To my Fathers house
To my Fathers house
To my Fathers house
Oh come and go with me Hallelujah
To my Fathers house
Where there’s Peace, peace, peace

There’s sweet communion there
In my Fathers House …

There’ll be no parting there
At my Fathers house …
