Shawl Weaver's Song
Cashmere Folk Song
by Seymour Barnard
Tempo: Allegretto

Deftly, deftly, nimble fingers,
Weave gold and azure strands.
Hasten, hasten, he who lingers.
Fly, firm and facile hands.

Weave for mother's shoulder
Shawls gay with glist of gold;
For her when bent and older,
Warm wool against the cold.

Children Folk Song: Chickadee Talk (Piano Sheet Music and Lyrics)

Chickadee Talk
George Reiter Brill
Peter Christian Lutkin
Tempo: Slowly

A chickadee swung on a grape vine that hung
From the limb of a button-ball tree.
To his mate in the crest he made this request:
"Chickadee, chickadee, chickadee."

Whatever this meant, yet the message he sent
Seemed to be quite important for she
With a toss of her head, looked down and then said:
"Chickadee, chickadee, chickadee."

Then both of them flew, for a meter or two,
In a style quite as pert as you please,
To a mossy-lined nest where joy was expressed
By their five baby-bye chickadees.

Merry Rain

Sprinkle, sprinkle, comes the rain.
Tapping on the window pane;
Trickling, coursing, crowding, forcing,
Tiny rills on the dripping window sills.

Thro' the air they fall and sift;
Dancing, tripping, bounding, skipping,
Thro' the street with their thousand merry feet.

Lyrics

Scarlet poppies are blowing
In the autumn air sweet;
Flaming poppies glow warmly,
Setting fire to the wheat.

Breezes soft set them dancing,
Swaying all to and fro;
Bending low in deep curt'sies;
Pretty manners they show.

Guessing Song
by Henry Johnstone and Kragero
Tempo: Andante
Lyrics

Oh ho! Oh ho! Pray, who can I be?
I sweep o'er the land, I scour o'er the sea;
I cuff the tall trees till they bow their heads,
And rock the wee birds in their beds.

Oh ho! Oh ho! I'm moghty and strong;
A puff of my breath, the ships sail along.
I'm known the world over, now who can I be
That sail o'er the land and the sea?

The Last Leaf (Piano Sheet Music with Lyrics) Folk Song/Lullaby

The Last Leaf
by Margaret Aliona Dole and Gaetano Donizetti
Lyrics

Sad autumn breezes sigh,
Gone are the warm green leaves,
Dead on the ground they lie,
Nature now grieves.

Glad was my welcome here,
Gay everywhere;
Fruit of the mellow years,
Trees clad in colors rare.

Gone is the magic spell,
Sad my farewell.

One leaf left trembling there,
High on the maple tree.
Mid withered groun they lie,
Nature now grieves.

Must I still linger here?
Gay everywhere;
Winter is drawing near,
All of my friends have died.

Down on the ground they lie,
Lonely am I.

I love the place I live in,
But on the map I've seen
Another little country
All pnk, while others is green.

I like our trees and bushes
And grass the way they are;
Still, pink is always pretty.
I wonder if it's far.

If I should ever go there,
Where everything is pink,
I'd say, "Your country's lovely.
But green is best, I think."

They haven't any wings!
I' d like to know how far they'd go,
If we should break their strings!
Some like them red, while some, instead,
Prefer them green or blue.
But I just find and kind is good enough,
Don't you?

Lullaby (Piano Sheet Music with Lyrics)

Lullaby
From Pinafore Palace
Bruno Huhn
Lyrics


When little Birdie bye-bye goes,
Still as mice in churches,
He hides his head no one knows,
On one leg he perches.

When little Birdie bye-bye goes,
On mother's arm reposing,
Soon he lies beneath the clothes,
In the cradle dozing.

Lullaby, lullaby
Lulla, lulla, lullaby.

When pretty pussy goes to sleep,
Tail and nose together,
Then little mice around her creep,
Lightly as a feather.

When little Baby goes to sleep,
And he is very near us,
Then on tiptoe softly creep;
Baby must not hear us.

Lullaby, lullaby
Lulla, lulla, lullaby.

The Raindrop Soldier (Piano Sheet Music) - Folk Song

The Raindrop Soldier
by Virginia Baker and Paul Bliss
Lyrics

The little raindrop soldiers
Are marching from the sky;
In uniforms of silver
I see them passing by.
Their drums, they beat a rat-tat-tat,
Rat-tat-tat, rat-tat-tat;
Their little feet go pitter-pat,
Pitter-pitter-pat.

The little raindrop soldiers
Have lots of work to do;
The thirsty earth they'll water,
And fill the rivers, too.
Their drums, they beat a rat-tat-tat,
Rat-tat-tat, rat-tat-tat;
Their little feet go pitter-pat,
Pitter-pitter-pat.

Pasko na sinta ko hanap-hanap kita
Bakit magtatampo nilisan ako

Kung mawawala ka sa piling ko sinta
Paano ang Pasko, inulila mo

Sayang sinta ang sinumpaan
At pagtitinginang tunay
Nais mo bang kalimutang ganap
Ang ating suyuan at galak

Kung mawawala ka sa piling ko sinta
Paano ang Paskong alay ko sa 'yo

Sayang sinta ang sinumpaan
At pagtitinginang tunay
Nais mo bang kalimutang ganap
Ang ating suyuan at galak

Kung mawawala ka sa piling ko sinta
Paano ang paskong alay ko sa'yo.

Scotch Lullaby: Scotland Folk Song - Piano Sheet Music

Scotch Lullaby
Tempo: Andantino
Lyrics

Oh,hush thee, my baby, thy mother a lady,
Both lovely and bright;
The woods and the glens, from the towers which we see,
They are all belonging, dear baby, to thee.

Oh, hush thee, my baby,
Thy sire was a knight,
Oh, hush thee, my baby,
So bonnie, so bright.

Oh, fear not the buble, tho' loudly it blows,
It calls but the warders that guard thy repose;
Teir bows would be bended,
their blades would be red,
Ere the step of a foeman draws near to thy bed.

Oh, hush thee, my baby,
Thy sire was a knight,
Oh, hush thee, my baby,
So bonnie, so bright.

Christmas In Our Hearts - Sheet Music and Karaoke (FIlipino Christmas Song)

Christmas In Our Heart
Jose Mari Chan
Lyrics

Whenever I see girls and boys
Selling lanterns on the street
I remember the child in the manger as he sleeps
Wherever there are people
Giving gifts exchanging cards
I believe that Christmas is truly in our hearts
Let's light our Christmas trees for a bright tomorrow
Where nations are at peace,
And all are one in God.

Chorus:
Let's sing Merry Christmas and a happy holiday
This season may we never forget the love we have for Jesus
Let him be the one to guide us as another new year starts
And may the spirit of Christmas be always in our hearts

In every prayer and every song
The community unite celebrating the birth of our savior Jesus Christ
Let love like that starlight on that first Christmas morn
Lead us back to the manger where Christ the child was born
So come let us rejoice
Come and sing the Christmas carol with one big joyful voice
Proclaim the name of the Lord

Repeat Chorus 2x:

Ang Pasko ay Sumapit - Filipino Christmas Song

Ang Pasko ay Sumapit
Lyrics

Ang Pasko ay sumapit
Tayo ay mangagsi-awit
Ng magagandang himig
Dahil sa ang Diyos ay pag-ibig
Nang si Kristo ay isilang
May tatlong haring nagsidalaw
At ang bawat isa
Ay nagsipaghandog ng tanging alay

Bagong taon ay magbagong-buhay
Nang lumigaya ang ating bayan
Tayo’y magsikap upang makamtan
Natin ang kasaganaan

Tayo’y mangagsi-awit
Habang ang mundo’y tahimik
Ang araw ay sumapit
Ng Sanggol na dulot ng langit
Tayo ay magmahalan
Ating sundin ang gintong aral
At magbuhat ngayon
Kahit hindi Pasko ay magbigayan

The Dustman - Lullaby and Folk Song (Piano Sheet Music and Video)

THE DUSTMAN - Lullaby Song
J.L. Molloy
Andante

When the toys are growing weary;
And the twilight gathers in,
When the nursery still re-echoes
With the children's merry din;

Then unseen, unheard, unnoticed,
Comes an old man up the stair,
Lightly to the children passes,
Lays his hand upon their hair.

Softly smiles the good old Dustman,
In their eyes the dust he throws,
Till their little heads are falling
And their eyelids gently close.

Then the Dustman very gently
Takes each little dimpled hand,
Leads them through the sweet green shadows,
Far away to Slumberland.

Choosing a Flower Sheet Music - Folk Song from the French

Choosing a Flower
Miriam Clark Potter from FrenchAllegretto
Lyrics

"Come flowers to me!
I'll choose one,
the fairest, the finest,
the rarest, My sister to be."
The tulip is grayest,
Most gorgeously drest;
And loved by the sunlight
Above all the rest."

Too haughty is she;
Of flowers, the proudest,
In colors, the loudest;
She'll not do for me."
The violet is modest,
And fairest of face;
She loves the deep forest
With beauty to grace.

"But she is to shy;
She shuns the bright meadows,
And hides in the shadows
Her big golden eye."
The rose smiles upon you
From beautiful bow'rs;
Choose her for your sister,
The queen of all flow'rs."

"Though lovely the rose,
Her playmates she teases
With thorns when she pleases,
As ev'ryone knows."
No flower is perfect,
No matter how rare;
Come, play with us all then,
Thro' summer days fair."

Sabi ng binata halina o hirang
Magpasyal tayo sa Lawiswis kawayan
Pugad ng pag-ibig at kaligayahan
Ang mga puso ay pilit magmahalan

Ang dalaga naman ay ibig pang umayaw
Sasabihin pa kay inay nang malaman
Binata'y nagtampo at ang wika
Ikaw pala'y ganyan akala mo'y tapat at
ako'y minamahal.

Ang dalaga naman ay biglang umiyak
Luha ay tumulo sa dibdib pumatak
Binata'y naawa lumuhod kaagad
Nagmakaamo at humingi ng patawad.
