SLEEPING BEAUTY

The Mini-Peasants

UP THE MOUNTAIN

Oh we all went up up up up up the…. Mountain

And we all came down down down down down again

Oh we all went up up up up up the…. Mountain

And we all came down down down down down again

The higher up the mountain

The greener grows the grass

We met a silly-billy goat

Who would not let us pass!

Oh we all went up up up up up the…. Mountain

And we all came down down down down down again

THE LION SLEEPS TONIGHT

A-weema-weh, a-weema-weh, a-weema-weh, a-weema-weh
A-weema-weh, a-weema-weh, a-weema-weh, a-weema-weh
A-weema-weh, a-weema-weh, a-weema-weh, a-weema-weh
A-weema-weh, a-weema-weh, a-weema-weh, a-weema-weh

In the palace, the mighty palace
The princess sleeps tonight
In the palace the quiet palace
The princess sleeps tonight

A-weema-weh, a-weema-weh, a-weema-weh, a-weema-weh
A-weema-weh, a-weema-weh, a-weema-weh, a-weema-weh

She’s not busy, she needs a kissy
The princess sleeps tonight

ONLY 16

She was only sixteen, only sixteen
And I loved her so
She was too young to fall in love
And I was too young to know

We’d laugh and we’d sing, and do funny things
It made our hearts glow
She was too young to fall in love
And I was too young to know

Why did I give my heart so fast
It never will happen again
But I was a mere child of sixteen
I’ve aged a year since then

She was only sixteen, only sixteen
And I loved her so
She was too young to fall in love
And I was too young to know

ME AND MY TEDDY BEAR

INTRO/SOLO

In the house next door right next to mine
A little boy lives there
At Xmas time dear Santa Claus
Brought him a teddy bear

He loves his little teddy bear
He’s with it all day long
And the sweetest thing I’ve ever heard
Is to hear him sing this song

ALL

Me and my teddy bear
Have no worries, have no cares
Me and my teddy bear
Just play and play all day

I love my teddy bear
He has one eye and has no hair
But I love my teddy bear
We play and play all day

Every night he’s with me
When I climb up the stairs
And by my bed he listens
Until I say my prayers

Me and my teddy bear
Have no worries, have no cares
Me and my teddy bear
Just play and play all day

MONEY IS THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL

Money is the root of all evil
Money is the root of all evil
Won’t contaminate myself with it
Take it away, take it away, take it away

Haven’t got a cent but don’t worry
Haven’t got a job but no hurry
I’m a peasant and I’m proud of it
Take it away, take it away, take it away

I got the one I love
I got the moon & stars above
I got my youth & health
What do I want with wealth?

Money is the root of all evil
Money is the root of all evil
Won’t contaminate myself with it
Take it away, take it away, take it away


The Pantoloonies

BEAUTIFUL BABY

You must have been a beautiful baby
You must have been a beautiful child
When you were only starting, to go to kindergarten
I bet you drove the little boys wild

And when it came to winning blue ribbons
You must have shown the other kids how
I can see the judges’ eyes, as they handed you the prize
I bet you made the cutest bow
You must’ve been a beautiful baby
‘Cause baby just look at you now

PANTOMIME

Pantomime, Pantomime, what a thrill, what a time

When all the world its cares can leave, in the land of Make Believe

Pantomime, Pantomime, Music plays, keeping time

With every heart that knows the score and we’re all just kids once more

With knaves and princes, dames and clowns,

all seeking crowns of gold

Through tears and laughter after all,

and a happy ending to behold

Pantomime, Pantomime, on it goes, so sublime

It’s entertainment’s greatest Show,

So! Long live Pantomime!

On a wonderful day like today

On a wonderful day like today

I defy any cloud to appear in the sky

Dare any raindrop to drop in my eye

On a wonderful day like today

On a wonderful day like today

When the sun is as big as a yellow balloon

Even the sparrows are singing in tune

On a wonderful day like today

On a morning like this I adore everybody

I’m so full of love and goodwill

On a morning like this I adore everybody

so come and dine

the pleasure’s mine

and I will pay the bill

May I take this occasion to say

That the whole human race should go down on its knees

Show that we’re grateful for mornings like these

For the world’s in a wonderful way

On a wonderful day like today

GOOD MORNING

Good Morning, Good Morning

We’ve talked the whole night through

Good Morning, Good Morning to you

Good Morning, Good Morning

It’s great to stay up late

Good Morning, Good Morning to you

When the band began to play

the stars were shining bright

Now the milkman’s on his way

it’s too late to say good night

Good Morning, Good Morning

It’s great to stay up late

Good Morning, Good Morning to you and you and you and you

Why can’t we be friends

Why can’t we be friends
Why can’t we be friends
Why can’t we be friends
Why can’t we be friends

There’s no need to shed a tear
You’re welcome here in Hertfordshire

Our differences don’t matter to me
As long as we can live in harmony

In this room there is an elephant
We need to talk about Maleficent

She always tries, to pull our leg

We must admit that she’s a rotten egg

You may feel sad from time to time

But liven up this is a pantomime

Heroes and villains, the usual crew

Oh no we don’t and oh yes we do!

Why can’t we be friends
Why can’t we be friends
Why can’t we be friends
Why can’t we be friends

LET’S HAVE A PARTY

Some people like to rock,

some people like to roll

But movin’ and a-groovin’s gonna satisfy my soul

CHORUS

Let’s have a party

Let’s have a party

Send him to the store,

let’s buy some more

Let’s have a party tonight

I never kissed a bear,

I never kissed a groom

But I can do the chicken in the middle of the room

CHORUS

DUET 1

Honky-Tonky’ Joe

is knockin’ at the door

Bring him in and fill him up

and sit him on the floor

DUET 2

The meat is on the stove,

the bread is getting hot

Everybody run, they got the lion in the pot

OLD TOWN ROAD

I’m gonna take my horse to the old town road
I’m gonna ride ’til I can’t no more
I’m gonna take my horse to the old town road
I’m gonna ride ’til I can’t no more

I got the horses in the back
Horse tack is attached
Hat is matte black
Got the boots that’s black to match
Ridin’ on a horse, ha
You can whip your Porsche
I been in the valley
You ain’t been up off that porch, now

Can’t nobody tell me nothin’
You can’t tell me nothin’
Can’t nobody tell me nothin’
You can’t tell me nothin’

CHORUS

Hat down, cross town, livin’ like a rockstar
Spent a lot of money on my brand new guitar

Baby’s got a habit: diamond rings that won’t go far
Ridin’ down Rodeo in my Maserati sports car
Got no stress, I’ve been through all that
I’m like a Marlboro Man so I kick on back

Wish I could roll on back to that old town road
I wanna ride ’til I can’t no more

Can’t nobody tell me nothin’
You can’t tell me nothin’
Can’t nobody tell me nothin’
You can’t tell me nothin’
