GREEN TREES
Green trees around us, blue skies above
Friends all around us in a world filled with love.
Taps sounding softly, hearts beating true,
As campers sing good night to you
Day is done, gone the sun
From each dying, glowing ember
There are friendships to remember
As we sing one last goodnight
Good night to you.
DONKEY RIDING
Were yo ever in Quebec
stowing timber on the deck?
Where there's a king with a golden crown
riding on a donkey.

Hi Ho away we go
donkey riding, donkey riding
Hi Ho away we go riding on a donkey.

Were you ever in the Horn
where it's always nice and warm?
Where there's a king with a unicorn
riding on a donkey?

Hi ho away we go
donkey riding, donkey riding
Hi Ho away we go riding on a donkey.
THIS OLD MAN
This old man, he played one,
He played knick-knack on my thumb
With a knick-knack paddywack Give the dog a bone
This old man came rolling home

Other Verses:
Two-on my shoe
Three-on my knee
Four-on the floor (or door)
Five-on my hive
Six-on my sticks
Seven-up to Devon (or up to heaven)
Eight-on the gate
Nine-down the line (or on my spine)
Ten-in the den (or now and then)

Children of the Lord.

WE AIN'T GOT A BARREL OF MONEY
Oh! We ain't got a barrel of money
Maybe we're ragged and funny
But we'll travel along
Singing a song, side by side

Don't know what's comin' tomorrow
Maybe it's trouble and sorrow
But we'll travel the road
Sharin' our load, side by side

Through all kinds of weather
What if the sky should fall
As long as we're together
It doesn't matter at all, side by side

When they've all had their quarrels and parted
We'll be the same as we started
Just travellin' along, sing a song
Side by side, side by side
