Medleys Arranged by Eugene Baxter's Nephew:

CIVIL WAR MEDLEY--CHURCH VERSION.

In the prison cell I sit
Thinking Mama Dear of you,
And our bright and shiney home so far away.
Though the tears they fill my eyes
Spite of all that I can do,
Though I try to cheer my comrades and be gay [chorus].
_______________________________________________________
CHORUS: Tramp! Tramp! Tramp! The Boys are marching,
Cheer up comrades they will come!
And beneath the Stary Flag
We shall breathe the air again
In the Free Lands of our own beloved homes!
_______________________________________________________
As we rally 'round the Flag boys
We'll ralley once again,
Shouting the battle cries of freedom.
We'll rally from the hillsides,
We'll rally from the plains,
Shouting the battle cries of freedom.
Up with the Union,
Hurrah Boys, Hurrah!
Down with the traitors,
And up with the Stars.
As we ralley for Old Abe, boys
We'll ralley once again,
Shouting the battle cries of freedom.
*******************************************************
1) Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the lord
He has trampled in the warehouse where his Grapes of Wrath are stored.
He has loosed the faihtful lightning of his terrible swift sword.
His Truth is marching on. [chorus]
******************
CHORUS: Glory glory hallelujah (3x)
His Truth is marching on.
*************************
2) I have seen him in the watchfires of a hundred circling camps.
They have builded him an altar in the evenings, dews and damps.
I have read his righteous sentence by the dim and glaring lamp.
Our day goes marching on. [chorus]
*****************
3) In the beauty of the lillies, Christ was born across the sea.
With the Glory in His Bosom that transfigures you and me.
As he died to make men Holy, let us live to make men free.
Our God is marching on. [chorus]
*******************

Westward Ho! Medley.

 

 

*******************************************************

Drunk last night, drunk the night before,

Going to get drunk tonight

Like I never got drunk before!

For when I'm drunk,

I'm as happy as can be;

For I am a member of the DUTCH FAMILY.

For the Dutch Family, is the best family,

Ever to come over from Old Germany.

There's the Amsterdam Dutch

And the Rotterdam Dutch

The Pottsdam Dutch,

And the other dern Dutch!

Singing Glorious! Glorious!

One Keg of the Beer for the four of us.

Glory be, that there are no more of us,

That one of us can drink it all alone.

All alone (all alone). All alone (all alone).

None of us can drink it all alone.

Glory be that there are no more of us,

That one of us can drink it all alone.

Oh come with me my Phyllis Dear

Through yonder mountain see.

When I am at your side.

And we'll take a ride. (Chorus)

And something good to eat.

So listen to my story,

It will relieve my heart,

And jump into the wagon,

And then we will start! (Chorus)

And jump into the wagon,

And we'll all take a ride! (Chorus 2x)

Tribute to Burl Ives Medley.

When I was young I use to wait

Upon my master, and hand him his plate.

I'd pass the bottle when he got dry,

And brush away the blue tail fly! (Chorus)

_________________________________________________________

CHORUS:

Jimmy crack corn, and I don't care! (3x)

My master's gone away!

_________________________________________________________

And when he'd ride in the afternoon

I'd follow him with a hickory broom.

That Pony being rather shy,

When bitten by the blue tail fly! (Chorus)

**********************************************************

On top of Old Smokey,

All covered with snow,

I lost my true lover,

Acccording to slow.

________________________________________________________

According's a pleasure,

And flirting's a grief;

But a false hearted lover

Is worse than a theif.

***********************************************************

Angus MacFergus, MacTavish Dundee!

Angus MacFergus, MacTavish Dundee! [from "Captain Kangaroo"]

**********************************************************

On a summer day

In the month of May

A burly bum came hiking

Down a shady lane

Through the sugar cane

He was looking for his liking

As he roamed along

He sang a song

Of the land of milk and honey

Where a bum can stay

For many a day

And he won't need any money.

CHORUS:

Oh the buzzin' of the bees

In the cigarette trees

Near the soda water fountain

At the lemonade springs

Where the bluebird sings

On the big rock candy mountain.

(repeat chorus)

***********************************************************

One fine day in early spring I played a funny trick

Right in the yard behind our hourse,

I planted a lollipop stick.

Then every day I watered it well and watched it carefully

I hoped one day that stick would grow

to be a lollipop tree.

Ah ha ha, Oh ho ho,

what a place to be

Under my lollipop, lollipop, lollipop, lolli, lolli, lollipop tree.

Ah ha ha, Oh ho ho,

what a place to be

Under my lollipop, lollipop, lollipop, lolli, lolli, lollipop tree.

***********************************************************

Down in the valley,

Valley so low.

Late in the evening,

Hear the wind blow.

CHORUS:

Hear the wind blow dear,

Hear the wind blow.

Late in the evening,

Hear the blow.

(repeat chorus)

Classic Cartoon Medley.

 

[Casper]

_______________________________________________________

Casper the friendly ghost

Friendliest ghost you know.

Though grown ups might

Look at him with fright,

Children all love him so.

Casper the friendly ghost,

He couldn't be bad or mean,

He'll romp and play,

And He'll laugh all day

The friendliest ghost you've seen!

He always says "Hello,"

And he's really gald to meet you.

Where ever he may go,

He's fond of every living creature.

Grown ups don't understand

Why children love him the most.

But kids all know,

That they love him so,

Casper The Friendly Ghost!

Katnip the Cat,

Packs his bags and leaves the house!

[Hunky & Spunky]

Keep a goin'

Keep a goin'

We're going to the place we love the best.

Keep a goin'

Keep a goin'

To the Hills of Colorado in the west.

Where there's stillness in the trees,

And there's music in the breeze.

Ooh! Oo-oo-ooh Ooh-oo-oo-ooh!

When you're roamin'

In the gloamin'

You're goin' to that place to build your home in.

Where the mountains rising high,

and there's blue clouds in the sky,

Keep a goin',

Keep a goin'!

*******************************************************

[Little Lulu]

*******************************************************

Little Lulu, Little Lulu,

With breakfast on your chin

Always in and out of trouble,

But mostly always in.

Using Daddy's necktie for the string of your kite.

Using Mommy's lipstick for the letters you write.

Though the clock strikes seven-thrty

It's really after ten.

Looks like Lulu's been repairing it again.

Though you wild as any zulu

And your just as hard to tame,

Little Lulu, we love you-lu,

Just the same! The same,

Little Lulu, we love you-lu,

Just the Same.

*******************************************************

I'm one tough gazookas

That hates all palookas

That ain't in the up and square.

And none of them gets nowhere.

If anyone dasses to risks his fisks,

It's boff and it's wham, understand?

So be of good behavior

'Gainst Popeye the Sailor Man.

'Cause I eats my spinach.

When you wish up on a star,

Makes no difference who you are!

Anything your heart desires

Like a bolt out of the blue,

Fate steps in and sees you through.

When you wish upon a star.

Your dreams come true.

*******************************************************

His land is greatest!

His land is the best,

From the grassy plains

To the mountain crests!

He's ahead of his song

Which he puts to the test,

And following his legend,

Right into the west.

Davy, Davy Crockett;

Striving for liberty!

With toppance and paper and string,

You can have your own set of wings

With your feet on the ground

You a bird in flight,

With your fist holdin' tight,

To the string of your kite!

__________________________________________

Oh-oh-oh let's go fly a kite,

Up to the highest height!

Let's go fly a kite,

and send it soaring

Up in the atmosphere,

Up where the air is clear,!

Oh let's go, fly a kite!
