Wild Mountain Thyme (Lyrics)

O the summertime is comin’
And the trees are sweetly bloomin’ –
And the wild mountain thyme,
All around the bloomin’ heather.

Will ye go, lassie, go?
And we’ll all go together
To pull wild mountain thyme,
All around the bloomin’ heather.
Will ye go, lassie go?

I will build my love a tower
By yon clear, crystal fountain,
And on it I will build
All the flowers of the mountain.

Will ye go, lassie go?

If my true love, she were gone,
I will surely find another
To pull wild mountain thyme,
All around the bloomin’ heather.

And we’ll all go together
To pull wild mountain thyme,
All around the bloomin’ heather.
Will ye go
…Will ye go
Will ye go, lassie, go?

Be Cool (Lyrics)

Be cool, be green,
And get our world clean.
Pollution’s mean, not always seen.
Be cool, be kind,
Get some peace of mind,
And leave a better world behind.

Look here, look there, let’s all be aware,
Listen to the warning, global warming,
Be cool.

The time is here to change our idea.
And start to clear the atmosphere.
It’s good to meet where the air is sweet.
Sit back, relax, turn down the heat.

Look here, look there, let’s all be aware,
Listen to the warning, global warming,
Be cool.

Be cool, be cool,
Be cool.

Daybreak (Lyrics)

Singin’ to the world,
It’s time to let the spirit come in.
Let it come on in. (I’m)
Singin’ to the world.
Everybody’s caught in the spin.
Look at where we’ve been.

We’ve been running around, year after year,
Blinded with pride…blinded with fear.

But it’s Daybreak…If you wanna believe it can be
Daybreak…Ain’t no time to grieve.
Said it’s Daybreak…if you’ll only believe
And let it shine, shine, shine…

All around the woooorld! All around the…
Singin’ to the world, singin’, singin’
Singin’ to the world, singin’, singin’

Singin’ to the world.
What’s the point of putting it down?
There’s so much love to share. (I’m)
Singin’ to the world.
Don’t you know it all comes around?
The feeling’s…everywhere!

We’ve been closin’ our eyes, day after day,
Covered with clouds…losing our way!

But it’s Daybreak…If you wanna believe it can be
Daybreak…Ain’t no time to grieve.
Said it’s Daybreak…if you’ll only believe
And let it shine, shine, shine…

All around the woooorld! All around the…
Singin’ to the world, singin’, singin’
Singin’ to the world, singin’, singin’

(But it’s) Daybreak…If you wanna believe it can be
Daybreak…Ain’t no time to grieve.
Said it’s Daybreak…if you’ll only believe
And let it shine, shine, shine…

All around the woooorld! All around the world,
Everyone’s singin’, singin’ to the world!
(Come on and let it) shine, shine, shine…

All ar-ou-nd the woooorld! All ar-ou-nd the…
Singin’ to the world, singin’, singin’
Singin’ to the world, singin’, singin’

Said it’s Da-ay-ay-ay-aybreak Singin’ to the world, singin’, singin’

Can you feel it? It’s da-ay-ay-ay-aybreak Singin’ to the world,
singin’, singin’

Can you feel it? It’s da-ay-ay-ay-aybreak Singin’ to the world,
singin’, singin’
(Come on and let it) Shiiiiiine!

The Whistling Gypsy Rover (Lyrics)

[Chorus: whistle first half; ‘la’ second half.]

1. The gypsy rover came over the hill,
Bound for the valley so shady.
He whistled and he sang ‘til the greenwoods rang,
And he won the heart of a la-a-a-dy.
And he won the heart of a lady, a lady.

Ah-dee-doo, ah-dee-doo-dah-day,
Ah-dee-doo, ah-dee-day-dee.
He whistled and he sang ‘til the greenwoods rang,
And he won the heart of a la-a-a-dy.
And he won the heart of a lady, a lady.

2. She left her father’s castle gate,
She left her fair young lover,
She left her servants and her estate
For her whistling gypsy ro-o-o-ver.
For her whistling gypsy rover, a rover.

[RED echo BLUE after 1 bar:]
Ah-dee-doo, ah-dee-doo-dah-day,
Ah-dee-doo, ah-dee-day-dee.
He whistled and he sang ‘til the greenwoods rang,
And he won the heart of a la-a-a-dy.
And he won the heart of a lady.

3.“He is no gypsy, my father,” she said,
“But lord of these lands all over,
“And I will stay ‘til my dying day
“With my whistling gypsy ro-o-o-o-ver.”
“With my whistling gypsy rover, a rover.”

[RED echo BLUE after 1 bar:]
Ah-dee-doo, ah-dee-doo-dah-day,
Ah-dee-doo, ah-dee-day-dee.
He whistled and he sang ‘til the greenwoods rang,
And he won the heart of a la-a-a-dy.
And he won the heart of a lady.

[Repeat Chorus: whistle first half’; ‘la’ second half.]

VE Day Medley (Lyrics)

WISH ME LUCK

Wish me luck, as you wave me goodbye,
Cheerio, here I go on my way.
Wish me luck, as you wave me goodbye,
With a cheer, not a tear – make it gay.

Give me a smile I can keep all the while
In my heart while I’m away.
‘Til we meet once again, you and I,
Wish me luck, as you wave me goodbye.

IT’S A LOVELY DAY TOMORROW

It’s a lovely day tomorrow –
Tomorrow is a lovely day!
Come and feast your tear-dimmed eyes
On tomorrow’s clear blue skies.

If, today, your heart is weary,
If every little thing looks grey,
Just forget your troubles and learn to say
‘Tomorrow is a lovely day!’…
‘Tomorrow is a lovely day!

WHITE CLIFFS OF DOVER

There’ll be bluebirds over
The white cliffs of Dover,
Tomorrow, just you wait and see.

There’ll be love and laughter
And peace ever after
Tomorrow, when the world is free.

The shepherd will tend his sheep,
The valley will bloom again,

And Jimmy will go to sleep
In his own little room again.

There’ll be bluebirds over
The white cliffs of Dover,
Tomorrow, just you wait and see.

WE’LL MEET AGAIN

We’ll meet again,
Don’t know where, don’t know when,
But I know we’ll meet again some sunny day!

Keep smiling through,
Just like you always do,
‘Til the blue skies drive the dark clouds far away.

So will you please say hello to the folks that I know –
Tell them I won’t be long!

They’ll be happy to know that, as you saw me go,
I was singing this song!

We’ll meet again,
Don’t know where, don’t know when,
But I know we’ll meet again some sunny day!

[repeat – all in unison 2nd time]

Earth Sea & Sky (Lyrics)

Have you ever danced across a meadow
On a warm and sunny summer’s day?
Or listened to the rustle as the wind flies by,
Or smelt the scent of new-mown hay?

Take a moment, take your time
And never let this beauty pass you by.
This precious planet is a wonderful place:
The earth, the sea, the sky!

Have you watched a perfect little snowflake
As it floats so softly down to land?
Or tried to catch a sunbeam as it falls to earth,
Or held a seashell in your hand?

Take a moment, take your time
And never let this beauty pass you by.
This precious planet is a wonderful place:
The earth, the sea, the sky!

Have you ever listened to a blackbird
As he sings his song for all to hear?
Or watched the breakers rushing to the sandy shore,
Or counted stars as they appear?

Take a moment, take your time
And never let this beauty pass you by.
This precious planet is a wonderful place:
The earth, the sea, the sky!

No Wars will Stop us Singing! (Lyrics)

Ugly sounds are overhead and the streets are coloured red.
Young lives lost ev’ry day, it’s always been that way.
But we believe one day we’ll see a world at peace, in harmony.
And that is why we say

No wars will stop us singing;
our voices will stay strong.
Even through the darkest night
we will sing our song.

No fear will stop us dreaming;
our dreams will light the sky.
Even when all hope is gone
our dreams will not die.

We are the future; we are tomorrow;
we are the peace that you all crave.
If our lives are taken we’ll sing from beyond the grave.

(We are the future; we are tomorrow;
the peace that you all crave.
We’ll sing from beyond the grave.)

No wars will stop us singing;
our voices will stay strong.
Even through the darkest night
we will sing our song.

We will sing,
we will sing,
we must sing our song.

Hope (Lyrics)

ALL
Hope is the way through the deepest maze,
Hope is the road to freedom.
Hope is the dream that we hold onto
When the troubles are hard
And when I feel low.
Hope is the friend we need around,
When life is changing
As it’s never changed before.
Hope takes us through the darkness
Brings us to the light
It’s been a brother
And a sister to me!

Hope is the way through the deepest maze,
(Showing the way we have to go)
Hope is the road to freedom.
(It is setting all the prisoners free)
Hope is the dream that we hold onto
(Giving us light)
When the troubles are hard
(When the troubles are so hard)
And when I feel low.
(and when I feel so low)
Hope is the friend we need around,
(Friends will always be around to help us)
When life is changing
As it’s never changed before.
(Friends will always be around).
Hope takes us through the darkness
Brings us to the light
(Brings us to the light)
BOTH:
It’s been a brother
And a sister to me!

Both (STRONGLY)
Hope is the friend we need around,
When life is changing
As it’s never changed before.
Hope takes us through the darkness
Brings us to the light (PAUSE)!
It’s been a brother
And a sister to me!
