celticblues5 Songs that work magic with little ones (75* d) Lyr Add: Never Say No^^ 16 Aug 00


CS -

The song from The Fantastiks is "Never Say No"

(cho)
Oh, dogs got to bark and mules got to bray
Soldiers must fight and preachers must pray
And children, I guess, must get their own way
The minute that you say no

Why did the kids pour jam on the cat?
Raspberry jam all over the cat?
Why should the kids do something like that
When all that we said was no?

My son was once afraid to swim
The water made him wince
Until I said he mustn't swim
Been swimmin' ever since
Been swimmin' ever since, ohhhhhhh

(cho)

Why did the kids put beans in their ears?
No one can hear with beans in their ears!
After awhile the reason appears
They did it 'cause we said no

Your daughter brings a young man in,
Says, 'Do you like him, Ma?'
Just tell her he's a fool and then
You've got a son-in-law
You've got a son-in-law, ohhhhhhhhh

Sure as the June comes right after May
Sure as the sun comes right after day
You can be sure the devil's to pay
The minute that you say no!
Make sure you never say.......No!


Yup - kids love it - I've used it too. Thanks for reminding us.
