Come on and climb on board Hudson the train We’re heading down the line Gonna get there on time And come on back again He’s a mighty steam engine ooooh oooh train sound Finest in the land He’s always ready To lend a helping hand Now you can hear him comin ooooh oooh train sound Steam whistle blow so loud. Making a big white cloud People all wave hello At the station.. Come on and climb on board ooooh oooh train sound Hudson the train We’re heading down the line Gonna get there on time And come on back again Common lets get the wheels a turning. Gotta long way to go Mountains up ahead Valley down below Gonna cross this nation lets go.. Ooooh oouhhhh oooohhhhhh repeat

I’m living in a pumpkin shell I’m living in a pumpkin shell But, oh, what the heck, it’s not that bad (shrug shoulder) I’ve got a sister who lives in a shoe She calls me up at a quarter to two She says “ I’ve got too many children I don’t know what to do I’ve got no more utensils All my dishes ran away with the spoons” I’m living in a pumpkin shell I’m living in a pumpkin shell But, oh what the heck, I won’t complain Humpty Dumpty fell off a wall At two o’clock he gives me a call He says ”I fell off a wall And that's not all All the kings horses and all the kings men Can’t get me together again” I’m living in a pumpkin shell Well it’s 3 ’clock and it’s time for tea time for tea A little pumpkin pie for you and me you and me And for dinner what shall we do We’ll have a little pumpkin stew Note (note adapted for choir) Well it’s 4 o’clock and it time for more time for more Would you like a piece of my front door? my front door Just when you’ve had your fill We’ll have a little window sill Cause I’m Living in a pumpkin shell I’m Living in a pumpkin shell But o what the heck it’s not that bad I have a sister that lives in a shoe

Sled Dog 02:42
sled dog gotta long way to go sled dog (and echo) over the ice and snow you were born to run running with the pack chasing down the sun never looking back sled dog gotta long way to go sled dog (and echo) over the ice and snow down the long white trail steady as she goes cross the line we sail it's a 1000 miles at 30 below flying out of the gate (oooou back up) faster than the rest You gotta pull your weight cause they put you, on this Quest Sled dog (and echo) (and echo) you pulling hard all day gonna get there soon evening closing in now youʼre howlin at the moon sled dog (and echo) gotta long way to go sled dog (and echo) over the ice and snow

Old Houses 02:17
I like old houses best don’t you Cause they never go cluttering up the view With roofs too red and paint too new With doors to green and blinds too blue I like old houses best don’t you Cause they never go cluttering up the view Their bricks may be dingy their clapboards a skew But the old ones look just like they grew bridge From sitting so many season through They’ve learned in a hundred years or two Not to go cluttering up the view. I like old houses best don’t you Cause they never go cluttering up the view With roofs too red and paint too new But the old ones look just like they grew
