    We Are Going Camping
    To the tune of "I'm a Little Teapot"
    We are going camping, it's time to pack:
    A tent, a sleeping bag, and a snack.
    We'll sit by the campfire, so warm and bright,
    And snooze in our tent 'til the morning light.

    Little Bunny Foo Foo
    Little Bunny Foo Foo went hopping through the forest,
    Scooping up the field mice and bopping them on the head.
    Then down came the Good Fairy, and she said:
    "Litte Bunny Foo Foo, I don't like to see you
    Scooping up the field mice and bopping them on the head.
    I will give you three chances to behave, and if you don't,
    I will come back and turn you into a GOON!"
    [Repeat two more times, counting down chances,
    and finally turning Little Bunny Foo Foo into a goon.]

    The Noble Duke of York
    The Noble Duke of York, he had 10,000 men;
    He marched them up the hill and then he marched them down again.
    For when you're up, you're up;
    And when you're down, you're down.
    And when you're only halfway up, you're neither up nor down.
