Avast! Ahoy! Lyrics (pirates song)

Pirates:

Swab the decks, Swab the decks,
Rig the mast, Rig the mast,
Hoist the sail, Hoist the sail,
Clean the brass. Clean the brass.


All
We’re off to find mermaids, we don’t know where,
We’re singing a shanty as we prepare.


CHORUS Avast! Ahoy! We’ll be
The scariest pirates that you’ve ever seen.
Avast! Ahoy! We’ll be
The rulers of the seven seas.


Pirates: 

Coil the ropes, Coil the ropes,
Batten the hatch, Batten the hatch,
Swing the lead, Swing the lead,
Raise the flag. Raise the flag.


All
Ready the ship for the journey today,
We’re off to seek mermaids and find their caves.


CHORUS Avast! Ahoy! We’ll be
The scariest pirates that you’ve ever seen.
Avast! Ahoy! We’ll be
The rulers of the seven seas.

Santa Claus is coming to town Lyrics

 

You better watch out
You better not cry
Better not pout
I’m telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town

He’s making a list
And checking it twice
He’s gonna find out who’s naughty or nice
Santa Claus is coming to town

He sees you when you’re sleeping
He knows when you’re awake
He knows if you’ve been bad or good
So be good for goodness sake

Repeat Chorus

He sees you when you’re sleeping
He knows when you’re awake
He knows if you’ve been bad or good
So be good for goodness sake

Never Smile at a Crocodile lyrics

Never smile at a crocodile
No, you can't get friendly with a crocodile
Don't be taken in by his welcome grin
He's imagining how well you'd fit within his skin
Never smile at a crocodile
Never tip your hat and stop to talk awhile
Never run, walk away, say good-night, not good-day
Clear the aisle but never smile at Mister Crocodile
You may very well be well bred
Lots of etiquette in your head
But there's always some special case, time or place
To forget etiquette
For instance
Never smile at a crocodile
No, you can't get friendly with a crocodile
Don't be taken in by his welcome grin
He's imagining how well you'd fit within his skin
Never smile at a crocodile
Never dip your hat and stop to talk awhile
Never run, walk away, say good-night, not good-day
Clear the aisle but never smile at Mister Crocodile

Silent Night Lyrics

 

Silent night, holy night
All is calm and all is bright
Round yon virgin, mother and child
Holy infant, so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace, ooh
Sleep, sleep in heaven, heavenly peace   x2
