DOCTOR JAZZ

Have you heard who’s new in town,
the hippest new M. D.?
Ev’ry time your feelin’ down,
he starts you off with Do Re Mi.
Get a note from Doctor Jazz,
got a cure for ev’ry thing.
No matter what your body has,
just open up your mouth and sing.
He says open up your mouth and sing.

Doctor Jazz, gets my tem’rature risin’.
Doctor Jazz, makes me feel all right.
Doctor Jazz, he’s so super energizin’!
Doctor Jazz, he is out-o-sight!
Doctor Jazz, it’s not at all suprisin’.
Got me an appointment on Saturday night.

If by chance you caught the blues,
Your back beat just won’t kick.
If your life is all bad news
and your social scene is sick.
Take a tip from this ol’ cat
‘cause he’ll know what to do.
A little this, a lot of that,
He’ll make you feel brand new.
Yes, he’ll make you feel brand new.

Doctor Jazz, gets my tem’rature risin’.
Doctor Jazz, makes me feel all right.
Doctor Jazz, he’s so super energizin’!
Doctor Jazz, he is out-o-sight!
Doctor Jazz, it’s not at all suprisin’.
Got me an appointment on Saturday night.

Doctor Jazz! What he haz!
A supercaliclinic and some razzamatazz.
He likes to swing, and he likes to bop.
And after ev’ry date I get a lollipop!
He’s got a cure for ev’ry thing.
Just open up your mouth and sing: ah ah ah
Open up your mouth and “di di li Doctor doo dah!”
Open up your mouth and sing, LET’S GO!

Doctor Jazz, gets my tem’rature risin’.
Doctor Jazz, makes me feel all right.
Doctor Jazz, he’s so super energizin’!
Doctor Jazz, he is out-o-sight!
Doctor Jazz, it’s not at all suprisin’.
Got me an appointment on Saturday night.
Got me an appointment on Saturday night. YEAH!

DANCE DANCE DANCE

In a village called Podolga, somewhere on the upper Volga
Lived a man who played the violin.
Every night when work was ended, he would play a tune so splendid; Soon the merry dancing would begin.

When they heard his fiddle playing everyone would soon be swaying.
Toes would tap and feet would start to fly.
In a circle round the fire, spirits soaring ever higher,
They would raise their voices to the sky.

(Chorus)
And they would dance (dance, dance, dance, dance, dance) together through the night.
Yes, they would dance (dance, dance, dance, dance, dance) until the morning light.
How they would dance (dance, dance, dance, dance, dance) He’d play his magic fiddle and they’d dance; the night away.

Everywhere the fiddler stayed he took his violin and played
And soon the people came from far and wide.
Once they heard his pizzicato
there was no one who would not go
Dancing all around the country side.

With his fiddle he would work a czardas or a mad mazurka
As the people whirled around with glee.
Villagers would ask him for a trepak or lively hora;
Then kick up their heels in ecstasy.

(Chorus)
And they would dance (dance, dance, dance, dance)
Dance (dance, dance, dance, dance)
Dance (dance, dance); Dance (dance, dance)
Dance (dance, dance); Dance (dance, dance)
dance, dance, dance, dance, dance, dance, dance, dance,
Dance (dance, dance, dance) the night away!

 

WADE IN THE WATER

(Round)

Wade on children, wade in the water. Wade children. Clap Wade on.
Wade on children, wade in the water. Wade children. Clap Wade on.

(Chorus)


Wade in the water.
Wade in the water, children.
Wade in the water.
God’s gonna trouble the water.

(Solo)
Tell you one thing and its certainly sure.

(Everyone)
Wade in the Water

(Solo)
Judgments comin’ and I don’t know.

(Everyone)
Wade in the Water

(Round and Chorus)

(Solo)
Up on the mountain Jehovah, he spoke.

(Everyone)
Wade in the Water

(Solo)
Out of his mouth came fire and smoke.

(Everyone)
Wade in the Water

(Round and Chorus)

Gods gonna trouble the water!

Wind on the Hill

No one can tell me,

Nobody knows,

Where the wind comes from,

Where the wind goes,


Where the wind goes.


It’s flying from some where

As fast as it can,

I couldn’t keep up with it,

Not if I ran.


No one can tell me,
Nobody knows.
Where the wind comes from,

Where the wind goes,


Where the wind goes.



INCH WORM

Verse
Two and two are four, four and four are eight.
That’s all you have on your bus’ness like mind.
Two and two are four, four and four are eight.
How can you be so blind?

Melody

Inchworm, inchworm 
Measuring the marigolds 

You and your arithmetic,
You’ll probably go far. 

Inchworm, inchworm 
Measuring the marigolds
Seems to me you’d stop and see 

How beautiful they are.

Obligato

Two and two are four. Four and four are eight.
Eight and eight are sixteen. 

Sixteen and sixteen are thirty-two
Two and two are four. Four and four are eight.
Eight and eight are sixteen. 

Sixteen and sixteen are thirty-two


This version of Wade in the Water isn’t exactly the same as ours, but it will still help you practice the correct melody.
