Row, Row, Row Your Boat” is an English nursery rhyme. It’s also considered an “action” rhyme, as singers often sit opposite of each other, join hands, and pretend to row a boat. The earliest printing of the song is from 1852. The lyrics were very much like the onces we sing today, but the melody was very different. It was first recorded with our modern tune in 1881.

The Star-Spangled Banner is the national anthem of the United States. The lyrics were written by lawyer and amateur poet Francis Scott Key. He had just witnessed the bombardment of Fort McHenry by British ships amidst the Battle of Baltimore during the War of 1812. His inspiration came from seeing the large American flag flying above the fort.

Lyrics
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?

A Mighty Fortress is Our God | Steve Green

Lyrics
A mighty fortress is our God,
a bulwark never failing;
our helper he amid the flood
of mortal ills prevaling.
For still our ancient foe
doth seek to work us woe;
his craft and power are great,
and armed with cruel hate,
on earth is not his equal.

Did we in our own strength confide,
our striving would be losing,
were not the right man on our side,
the man of God’s own choosing.
Dost ask who that may be?
Christ Jesus, it is he;
Lord Sabaoth, his name,
from age to age the same,
and he must win the battle.

And though this world, with devils filled,
should threaten to undo us,
we will not fear, for God hath willed
his truth to triumph through us.
The Prince of Darkness grim,
we tremble not for him;
his rage we can endure,
for lo, his doom is sure;
one little word shall fell him.

That word above all earthly powers,
no thanks to them, abideth;
the Spirit and the gifts are ours,
thru him who with us sideth.
Let goods and kindred go,
this mortal life also;
the body they may kill;
God’s truth abideth still;
his kingdom is forever.

The Old Gray Mare is a classic folk song that has more recently been adopted into the standard collection of American children’s songs.  The text refers to a horse, though the lyrics may also be referring to a woman that is well past her prime.

Lyrics
Oh, the old gray mare, she ain’t what she used to be,
Ain’t what she used to be, ain’t what she used to be.
The old gray mare, she ain’t what she used to be,
Many long years ago.

Many long years ago, many long years ago.

The old gray mare, she ain’t what she used to be,
Many long years ago.

The old gray mare, she kicked on the whiffletree,
Kicked on the whiffletree, kicked on the whiffletree
The old gray mare, she kicked on the whiffletree
Many long years ago.

Many long years ago, many long years ago,

The old gray mare, she kicked on the whiffletree
Many long years ago.

Swing Low, Sweet Chariot a traditional American spiritual. It was written by Wallis Willis around 1862. It has become such a favorite, that it has been included in the list of Songs of the Century.

Lyrics
Swing low, sweet chariot,
Coming for to carry me home,
Swing low, sweet chariot,
Coming for to carry me home.

I look’d over Jordan
An’ what did I see,
Coming for to carry me home,
A band of angels comin’ after me,
Coming for to carry me home.

Swing low, sweet chariot,
Coming for to carry me home,
Swing low, sweet chariot,
Coming for to carry me home.

If you get there before I do,
Coming for to carry me home,
Tell all my friends I’m comin’ there too
Coming for to carry me home.

Swing low, sweet chariot,
Coming for to carry me home,
Swing low, sweet chariot,
Coming for to carry me home.

Swing low, sweet chariot,
Coming for to carry me home,
Swing low, sweet chariot,
Coming for to carry me home.

Who Built the Ark? Lyrics

Who built the Ark?
Noah, Noah,
Who built the ark?
Brother Noah built the ark.

Old man Noah build the Ark,
He build it out of hickory bark.
He build it long, both wide and tall.
With plenty of room for the large and small.

Who built the Ark?
Noah, Noah,
Who built the ark?
Brother Noah built the ark.

In came the animals two by two,
Hippopotamus and kangaroo.
In came the animals three by three,
Two big cats and a bumble bee.

Who built the Ark?
Noah, Noah,
Who built the ark?
Brother Noah built the ark.
