Lyrics for ‘Cobbler, Cobbler’

Cobbler, cobbler, mend my shoe.
Get it done by half past two.

Stitch it up, and stitch it down,
And I’ll give you half a crown.

Stitch it up and stitch it down
And I’ll pay you a shiny crown.

Get it done by half past two.
Half past two is much too late,
Get it done by half past eight.

Beriozka (The Birch Tree) | Lyrics, Piano Sheet Music & Video

Beriozka or The Birch Tree, is a classic traditional Russian Folksong, which is believed to have been written two centuries ago. Commonly known as “In The Field Stood A Birch Tree” in English, this song has many variations on its name, including “Berezka”, “Beroza” or “Beriozka.” It is quite popular among composers and personalities, who have incorporated it in their works. Tchaikovsky included Beriozka in the last movement of his Fourth Symphony, while Dario Mariannelli used the song in his musical score for the film, “Anna Karenina.”

Lyrics for ‘Beriozka’

See the lovely birch in the meadow,
Curly leaves all dancing when the wind blows.
Loo-lee-loo, when the wind blows,
Loo-lee-loo, when the wind blows.

Oh, my little tree, I need branches,
For the silver flutes I need branches.
Loo-lee-loo, three branches,
Loo-lee-loo, three branches.

From another birch I will make now,
I will make a tingling balalaika.
Loo-lee-loo, balalaika,
Loo-lee-loo, balalaika.

When I play my new balalaika,
I will think of you, my lovely birch tree.
Loo-lee-loo, lovely birch tree,
Loo-lee-loo, lovely birch tree.

Alouette | Lyrics, Beginner Piano Sheet Music & Video

Alouette is a popular French Canadian children’s song commonly thought to be about  plucking the feathers of a lark. The song was first published in A Pocket Song Book for the Use of Students and Graduates of McGill College in 1879. Canadian folklorist Marius Barbeau suggested that the French colonists used songs like Alouette to dip their canoe paddles in unison.

Although a French song, Alouette is well-known throughout the world. This is due in part because Marines and other Allied soldiers learned the song while serving in France during World War I, and then passed it on to their children and grandchildren.

For the tune, Howe used, John Brown’s Body, an American marching song about the American abolitionist, John Brown. Battle Hymn of the Republic is frequently used as an American patriotic song.

Lyrics for ‘Battle Hymn of the Republic’

First Published Version

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord;
He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored;
He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword:
His truth is marching on.

(Chorus)
Glory, Glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.

I have seen Him in the watch-fires of a hundred circling camps,
They have builded Him an altar in the evening dews and damps;
I can read His righteous sentence by the dim and flaring lamps:
His day is marching on.

(Chorus)
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
His day is marching on.

I have read a fiery gospel writ in burnished rows of steel:
“As ye deal with my contemners, so with you my grace shall deal”;
Let the Hero, born of woman, crush the serpent with his heel,
Since God is marching on.

(Chorus)
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Since God is marching on.

He has sounded forth the trumpet that shall never call retreat;
He is sifting out the hearts of men before His judgment-seat;
Oh, be swift, my soul, to answer Him! Be jubilant, my feet!
Our God is marching on.

(Chorus)
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Our God is marching on.

In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea,
With a glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me.
As He died to make men holy, let us die to make men free,
While God is marching on.

(Chorus)
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
While God is marching on.

Hymnal Version

1. Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord;
He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored.
He hath loosed the fateful lightning of his terrible, swift sword;
His truth is marching on.

[Chorus]
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.

2. He has sounded forth the trumpet that shall never call retreat;
He is sifting out the hearts of men before his judgment seat.
Oh, be swift, my soul, to answer him; be jubilant my feet!
Our God is marching on.

[Chorus]

3. In the beauty of the lilies, Christ was born across the sea,
With a glory in his bosom that transfigures you and me.
As he died to make men holy, let us live to make men free,
While God is marching on.

[Chorus]

Alternate Version

He is coming like the glory of the morning on the wave,
He is Wisdom to the mighty, He is Succour to the brave,
So the world shall be His footstool, and the soul of Time His slave,
Our God is marching on.

(Chorus)
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Our God is marching on!

Pick a Bale of Cotton | Free Piano Sheet Music, Lyrics, Guitar Chords

Pick a Bale of Cotton is an American traditional folk song and spiritual. It began as a work song and has been around for quite sometime before Lead Belly (whose real name was Huddie William Ledbetter) made a record of the song. Lead Belly was an American folk and blues musician known for his strong, distinct vocals and for being a virtuoso on the twelve-string guitar.

The song has been covered by some of the most popular artists in history including Harry Belafonte, Johnny Cash, Lonnie Donegan, The Quarrymen, and The Vipers Skiffle Group (also known simply as The Vipers). In 1975, the Swedish pop group ABBA also included the song in a medley of folk songs along with other traditional folk songs like Midnight Special and On Top of Old Smoky.

Lyrics for ‘Pick a Bale of Cotton’

(Note: The song begins at a decent tempo but the more that it progresses, the more the speed increases. The phrase “me and my baby” will also be replaced with “me and my wife”, “me and my pappy”, “me and my buddy”, “me and my partner”, or “me and my friend” in the verses that follow.)

Jump down turn around,
Pick a bale of cotton,
Jump down turn around,
Pick a bale a day.

Oh, Lordie pick a bale of cotton,
Oh, Lordie pick a bale a day.
Oh, Lordie pick a bale of cotton,
Oh, Lordie pick a bale a day.

Well, me and my baby gonna
Pick a bale of cotton.
Me and my baby gonna
Pick a bale a day.

Oh, Lordie pick a bale of cotton,
Oh, Lordie pick a bale a day.
Oh, Lordie pick a bale of cotton,
Oh, Lordie pick a bale a day.
