Hoedown PENNY:
When our grandmas and our grandpas were just girls and boys,
they seemed to have a lot more fun than we.
Their party clothes were calicoes and homemade corduroys,
and a big event was called a husking bee.
A banjo, and a fiddle, and a big old fashion barn was all the prepartion that they made and
if they tell you otherwise, dismiss it as a yarn, refreshments were confined to lemonade.
Now you may say it's corny, and I guess I must agree, but it was good enough for grandma,
it was good enough for grandpa, and it's good enough for me.
Hoedown, the country's gone hoedown. It's puttin' its toe down,
and kickin' its heel.
Hoedown is really a rare dance, a pioneer square dance but with a new deal.
One, two, swing your partner lightly while you hold her ever so tightly.
Hoedown, and bring your best beau down, we're facin' a showdown and gotta make hay,
'cause hoedowns on its way. Stand in line and do the turkey like a Yankee Doodle Dandy.

TOMMY: When you turkey, do it jerky, that's the trick. Now you're hoein' on down.
CHORUS: Sashay, sashay, sashay around while you're hoein' on down.
PENNY: Form a circle in the middle, everybody allemande.
TOMMY: Boys keep tempo with the fiddle, and your gal in the calico gown.
CHORUS: Ho ho, ho ho, ho hoe on down with your calico gown.
PENNY: do-si-do around, it's very romantic.
CHOURS: Do-si-do
TOMMY: Do-si-do some more and maybe she'll fall
CHORUS: Do do do do hi-ho
BOTH (Penny and Tommy):
Now it's time to do your honors,
then when you've gone through your honors promenade the hall.
CHORUS: Da da da da da da
BOTH:
Hoedown, the countrys gone hoedown.
Its puttin' its toe down, and kickin' its heel.
Hoedown is really a rare dance, a pioneer square dance but with a new deal.
One, two, swing your partner lightly while you hold her ever so tightly.
Ho-ho-hoedown, and bring your best beau down, we're facin' a showdown and gotta make hay.
CHORUS: Hoedown today
BOTH: 'cause hoedowns on its way....
CHORUS: Hoedown and bring you best beau down, we're facin' a showdown we gotta make hay....
ALL:
So hoedown, showdown, the hoe downs on it's way!!


Chin Up! Cheerio! Carry On!
PENNY:
From the dark cafes of Paris, from the streets of Amsterdam,
from the homes of old Vienna to the shores of Uncle Sam,
wherever freedom's hope is true each heart cries out to you.
Don't give up, Tommy Atkins, be a stout fella,
Chin up! Cheerio! Carry on!
Keep a stiff upper lip when you're in
doubt, fella, Chin up! Cheerio! Carry on!
Oh, the sun's sure to smile on your tight little isle,
so hang on to your wits and you'll turn the blitz on Fritz,
there's a whole world behind you shoutin' "stout fella!"
Chin up! Cheerio! Carry on!

BOYS:
Don't give up, Tommy Atkins, be a stout fella,
Chin up! Cheerio! Carry on!
Keep a stiff upper lip when you're in doubt, fella,
Chin up! Cheerio! Carry on!
Oh, the sun's sure to smile on your tight little isle,
so hang on to your wits and you'll turn the blitz on Fritz,
there's a whole world behind you shoutin'
"stout fella!" Chin up! Cheerio! Carry on!

ALL:
Don't give up, Tommy Atkins, be a stout fella,
Chin up! Cheerio! Carry on!
Keep a stiff upper lip when you're in doubt, fella,
Chin up! Cheerio! Carry on!
Oh, the sun's sure to smile on your tight little isle,
so hang on to your wits and you'll turn the blitz on Fritz,
there's a whole world behind you shoutin' "stout fella!"
Chin up! Cheerio! Carry on!...Carry on!!!
