New 2nd Grade Musical Post – America Goes West!

America Goes West!
Let tyrants shake their iron rod, and slavery clank her galling chains.
We fear them not, we trust in God, New England’s God forever reigns.

Lay down boys and take a little nap, fourteen miles to the Cumberland Gap.
Cumberland Gap, Cumberland Gap, Way down yonder in the Cumberland Gap.
?Fare thee well, Old Joe Clark, fare thee well, lim gone.
Fare thee well, Old Joe Clark, goodbye, I’m gone.

We’ve formed our band, we are all well-manned to journey a far to the promised land.
The golden ore is rich in store on the banks of the Sacramento shore.
Then ho, boys ho! To California go!
There’s plenty of gold in the world I’m told on the banks of Sacramento shor!

WESTWARD HO!

Let’s Sing, America! Script-26kn5p7

Of Thee I Sing, America
There is a country full of dignity and life! There is a country born of freedom, born of strife.
Of thee I sing! Of thee I sing! Of thee I sing, America.
Of thee I sing! Of thee I sing! Of thee I sing, America.

There is a nation in a land of liberty. There is a nation where the people all live free.
Of thee I sing! Of thee I sing! Of thee I sing, America.
Of thee I sing! Of thee I sing! Of thee I sing, America.

America! America! The red the white and blue!
America! America! I sing this song for all of you!

I love my country, so I’ll proudly take my stand!
I love my country, so I’ll sing throughout the land.

Of thee I sing! Of thee I sing! Of thee I sing, America.
Of thee I sing! Of thee I sing! Of thee I sing, America.
America! America!

The Star Spangled Banner
Oh say can you see, by the dawn’s early light.
What so proudly we hail’d at the twilight’s last gleaming? ?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, thro’ the perilous fight.
O’er the ramparts we watch’d, were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
gave proof thro’ the night that our flag was still there.
O say, does that star spangled banner yet wave,
o’re the land of the free, and the home of the brave?

Let’s Sing, America!
She’ll be comin’ ’round the mountain when she comes! YEE HA!
She’ll be comin’ ’round the mountain when she comes! YEE HA!
She’ll be comin’ ’round the mountain, she’ll be comin’ ’round the mountain,
She’ll be comin’ ’round the mountain when she comes! YEE HA!

You’re a grand old flag, you’re a high flying flag, and forever in peace may you wave;
You’re the emblem of the land I love, the home of the free and the brave.
Ev’ry heart beats true ‘neath the red, white and blue, where there’s never a boast or brag;
But should auld, acquaintance be forgot, keep your eye on the grand old flag!

Oh when the saints go marching in, Oh when the saints go marching in,
Oh, how I want to be in that number, when the saints go marching in!

Oceans of Fun

Oceans of fun! We’re playing in the sun.

Oceans of fun! We’re swimming ‘till the day is done.

Oceans of fun! It’s one for all and all for one,

‘Cause out in the beautiful big blue sea, it’s oceans of fun!

 

Ev’ry little fish, has a main ambish,

one simple little wish, its just to splash and splish!

Everybody grins, dancing on their fins, so come on in and give it a spin,

and let the fun begin!

 

Oceans of fun! We’re playing in the sun.

Oceans of fun! We’re swimming ‘till the day is done.

Oceans of fun! It’s one for all and all for one,

‘Cause out in the beautiful big blue sea, it’s oceans of fun!

 

Out here in the sea, everything is free.

There’s no admission fee in our ocean family

Swimming when its light, swimming when it’s night,

In our ocean park, it’s never too dark, unless we see a SHARK!

 

Oceans of fun! We’re playing in the sun.

Oceans of fun! We’re swimming ‘till the day is done.

Oceans of fun! It’s one for all and all for one,

‘Cause out in the beautiful big blue sea, it’s oceans of fun!

Yes out in the beautiful big blue sea, its O-CEANS Of      FUN___

Oceans and oceans of fun!

We’re Sharks!

Mako Rap solo

A shark may have three thousand teeth,

Some on top, some underneath,

When we chew, we just might leave a mark,

That’s what it is… to be a SHARK!

They’re sharks__leaving their marks__

they’re sharks__leaving their marks__

Not outlaws, just usin’ their jaws,

they’re sharks__leaving their marks

 

Hammerhead Rap solo

Got no bones only cartilage, but some have bodies as big as a fridge!

We only swim forward, we never back up,

And when there’s plankton, We’re there to snack up!

They’re sharks__leaving their marks__

they’re sharks__leaving their marks__

Not outlaws, just usin’ their jaws,

they’re sharks__leaving their marks

 

Blue shark Rap solo

You might see me coming with my dorsal fin.

If you get in my way, I usually win!

Even a whale is afraid of me! We’re sharks, not chickens of the sea!
They’re sharks__leaving their marks__

they’re sharks__leaving their marks__

Not outlaws, just usin’ their jaws, they’re sharks__leaving their marks.

They’re sharks__leaving their marks__

They’re sharks__leaving their marks____ YO!!

Commotion in the Ocean

There’s a commotion in the ocean, and it’s lots of fun.

The commotion in the ocean is for everyone.

So come on in and sit right down, but you might get splashed by a nautical clown!

Oh the commotion in the ocean is beneath the sea.

The commotion in the ocean is for you and me.

It’s such a crazy notion; its perpetual motion.

It’s underwater comedy!

Clown Fish Bo and Zo tell jokes (certain students)

Clown Fish 1: Zo and Clown Fish 2: Bo tell jokes in the middle of the song

Verse 1) Hey Bo!                         Yea Zo?

Have you heard what sits on the bottom of the sea and shakes?

No, what sits on the bottom on the sea and shakes?

A NERVOUS WRECK!

It’s such a crazy notion; its perpetual motion.

It’s underwater comedy!

Verse 2) Hey Zo!                        Yea Bo?

So where do you think fish keep their money?

I don’t know….. where DO fish keep their money?         In the river bank!

It’s such a crazy notion; its perpetual motion.

It’s underwater comedy!

(Faster)There’s a commotion in the ocean, and it’s lots of fun.

The commotion in the ocean is for everyone.

           So come on in and sit right down,

but you might get splashed by a nautical clown!

(even faster!)Oh the commotion in the ocean is beneath the sea.

The commotion in the ocean is for you and me.

It’s such a crazy notion; its perpetual motion.

It’s underwater comedy!

It’s un-der-wa-ter com-e-dy!
