I'm 15 for a moment
Caught in between 10 and 20
And I'm just dreaming
Counting the ways to where you are
I'm 22 for a moment
She feels better than ever
And we're on fire
Making our way back from Mars
15 there's still time for you
Time to buy and time to lose
15, there's never a wish better than this
When you only got 100 years to live
I'm 33 for a moment
Still the man, but you see I'm a they
A kid on the way
A family on my mind
I'm 45 for a moment
The sea is high
And I'm heading into a crisis Chasing the years of my life 15 there's still time for you Time to buy, Time to lose yourself Within a morning star 15 I'm all right with you 15, there's never a wish better than this When you only got 100 years to live Half time goes by Suddenly you’re wise Another blink of an eye 67 is gone The sun is getting high We're moving on...
I'm 99 for a moment Dying for just another moment 1 And I'm just dreaming Counting the ways to where you are 15 there's still time for you 22 I feel her too 33 you’re on your way Every day's a new day...
15 there's still time for you Time to buy and time to choose Hey 15, there's never a wish better than this When you only got 100 years to live
A FRIEND IS NEAR
All through the day, going my way, With all the games and the fun one cannot say, You are my friend, I’m glad you’re here.
Though it’s not long since we first met, I know that you’ll be the one I shall not forget.
Sit by my side for a while, make these moments seem long, Before it’s gone, join in my song.
Evening has come, shadows appear, The sun has slipped from the sky, bright stars are clear, A friend is near, and friends are so dear, I’m glad you’re here.
AMERICAAmerica, America, you have made us feel so proud.
Won’t you tell us of your riches, we love you so.
2 ANNIE’S SONG You fill up my senses like a night in the forest, Like a mountain in springtime, like a walk in the rain.
Like a storm in the desert, like a sleepy blue ocean, You fill up my senses, come fill me again.
Come let me love you, let me give my love to you.
Let me drown in your laughter, let me die in your arms, Let me lay down beside you, let me always be with you, Come let me love you, come love me again.
AT TIMES 1984 At times we reflect on our memories, And thoughts of you come into our minds.
Our friendship, our love, and our laughter Is rare and is one of a kind.
And we look back on good times, the fun that we’ve had, And our friendship has strengthened though good and through bad.
And through time, and through time, we’ve become the best of friends.
The summer days we’ve spent here together We’ll cherish and we’ll keep in our hearts.
The joy from teammates will prosper And teardrops will fall when we part.
August is laughing across the sky, Laughing while paddle, canoe and I, Drift, drift, the hills uplift, On either side of the current swift.
And up on the hills against the sky, A fir tree is rocking its lullaby, Swing, swing, its emerald wings, Swelling the song that my paddle sings.
BIG, BLUE FROG I'm in love with a big blue frog, and a big blue frog loves me.
It's not as bad as it appears, he's got glasses and he's 6 foot 3.
Do do do do do dododo I'm not worried about our kids, I know they'll turn out neat.
They'll be great looking 'cause they'll have my face, And great swimmer 'cause they'll have his feet.
Do do do do do dododo I'm in love with a big blue frog, and a big blue frog loves me, It's not as bad as it appears, he's got rhythm and a PHD.
Do do do do do dododo I know we can make things work, he's got good family sense, His mother was a frog from Philadelphia, his father an enchanted prince.
Do do do do do dododo The neighbors are against it and it's clear to me, and it's probably clear to you. The value of the property will go right down, if the family next door is blue.
Do do do do do dododo 4 I'm in love with a big blue frog, and a big blue frog loves me, I've got a tattoo on my chest, it says, P.H.R.O.G, that's frog to me... P.H.R.O.G.
CAMPING IN THE ADIRONDACKS
Oh, we’re all out camping in the Adirondacks And we’re full of pep as a carpet is of tacks And there’s not a blessed thing that the old camp lacks,
If you don’t believe us, well, here are the facts:
Look at you and look at me, look at the rest of the company.
We certainly are feeling fine And we’re all coming back every summertime.
Do me a favor, come back!
CATS IN THE CRADLE
A child arrived just the other day, he came into the world in the usual way But there were planes to catch and bills to pay, he learned to walk while I was away.
And he was talking ‘fore I knew it and as he grew he said, “I’m gonna be like you, dad, you know I’m gonna be like you.” And the cat’s in the cradle and the silver spoon Little Boy Blue and the man on the moon.
“When you coming home, dad?” “I don’t know when, but we’ll get together then, son.
You know we’ll have a good time then.” Well my son turned ten just the other day, he said, “Thanks for the ball dad, come on let’s play. Can you teach me to throw?” I said, “Not today, I’ve got a lot to do.” He said, “That’s OK.” And he walked away, with a smile on his face and said, “I’m gonna be like him, yeah, you know I’m gonna be like him.”
Well I’ve long since retired and my son’s moved away, I called him up just the other day.
I said, “I’d like to see you if you don’t mind.” He said, “I’d like to dad if I can find the time. You see the new job’s a hassle and the kid’s got the flu, but it’s been sure nice talking to you, dad. Sure nice talking to you.” And as I hung up the phone it occurred to me, He’d grown up just like me, yeah, my boy was just like me.* CIRCLE GAME Yesterday a child came out to wander, caught a dragonfly inside a jar;
Fearful when the sky was full of thunder and tearful at the falling of a star.
*And the seasons, they go round a round, and the painted ponies go up and down, We’re captured on a carousel of time, We can’t return we can only look behind from where we came And go round and round and round in the circle game.
Now the child’s moved ten times round the seasons, skated over ten clear frozen streams;
Words like “when you’re older” must appease him and promises of someday make his dreams.* 6 Sixteen springs and sixteem summers gone now, cartwheels turn to car wheels through the town;
And they tell him, “take your time, it won’t be long now ‘til you drag your feet too slow the circles down.”* Years spin by and now the boy is twenty, though his dreams have lost some grandeur coming true; there’ll be new dreams, maybe better dreams and plenty before the last revolving year is through.* COLONEL MAC’S SONG (Air: Unchained Melody) Colonel Mac, we wish to Pay respect to you After many years Time’s gone by Since you first came to Camp Jeanne d’Arc With our Colonel dear, You add so much to Camp Jeanne d’Arc We wish to thank you too.
CRUEL WAR The cruel war is raging and Johnny has to fight And I want to be with him from morning to night.
I want to be with him, it grieves my heart so, won’t you let me go with you?
“No, my love, no.” Tomorrow is Sunday, and Monday is the day That your Captain will call you, and you must obey.
Your Captain will call you, it grieves my heart so, won’t you let me go with you?
“No, my love, no.” I’ll tie back my hair, men’s clothing I’ll put on And I’ll walk as your comrade as we march along.
I’ll pass as your comrade, no one will ever know, won’t you let me 7 go with you?
“No, my love, no.” Oh Johnny, oh Johnny, I feel you are unkind For I love you far better than all of mankind.
I love you far better than words can e’er express, won’t you let me go with you?
“Yes, my love, yes.” The cruel war has ended and Johnny has come home But his head’s bowed in sorrow for he walks alone.
She died in his footsteps, no one will ever know. Won’t you let me go with you?
“No, my love, no.” DIP, DIP AND SWING Our paddles keen and bright flashing like silver, swift as the wild geese fly, dip, dip and swing.
Dip, dip and swing them back, flashing like silver, keen as the wild geese fly, dip, dip and swing.
DOE A DEER
On a wagon bound for market, there's a calf with a mournful eye.
High above him there's a swallow winging swiftly through the sky.
*How the winds are laughing, they laugh with all their might.
Laugh and laugh the whole day through and... half the summer's night, Singing Dona, Dona, Dona...
"Stop complaining," said the farmer, "who told you a calf to be?
Why don't you have wings to fly with, like the swallow so proud and free?"* Calves are easily bound and slaughtered, never knowing the reason why;
But whoever treasures freedom like the swallow has learned to fly.* EDELWEISS Edelweiss, Edelweiss, every morning you greet me.
Small and white, clean and bright, you look happy to meet me.
Blossom of snow may you bloom and grow, Bloom and grow forever.
Edelweiss, Edelweiss, bless my homeland forever.
EVENING AT JEANNE D'ARC 1923 Oh, evening at Jeanne d'Arc, is the best time of all, When the campfire is glowing, and bright embers fall.
With songs and soft voices, and wax candles tall, Oh, evening at Jeanne d'Arc, is the best time of all.
Oh, evening at Kenwood, bring Jeanne d'Arc to me.
My duties are over and my thoughts are free.
I ask God to bless you, what more can I say, Good night and God bless you, my own JDA.
FIRST CAMP SONG - 1922 Camp Jeanne d'Arc's the place to go to make a friendship rare, Happy times, and jolly chimes, and girls from everywhere.
Glad, oh be glad! And sadly go away.
Only don't forget to come back to Chateaugay.
FLEUR DE LIS SONGCounselor: But it’s the time to make a change, you have been here weeks now.
Your still dumb, that’s your fault, there’s so much you have to learn.
Find an activity, settle down, if you want you can teach it.
Look at me, I’m old and getting crabby.
I was once like you are now and I know its not easy to be quiet When you know something’s going on.
Raid the Hearth, short sheet a bed, put a frog on someone’s head But make sure I do not see or you’ll lose the Fleur de Lis.
You’ll see, you’ll lose the Fleur de Lis.
Camper: How can I try to explain ‘cause you’re never in the cabin.
When I ask you never tell me what you’re havin’.
If you would stay, then you would see that I’m as good as I can be.
I made my bunk, I killed a skunk, please give me the Fleur de Lis.
FLOWERS GONEWhere have all the flowers gone? Long time passing, I wanna know Where have all the flowers gone? Long time ago.

When will they ever learn, when will they ever learn?
(Replace flowers for young girls, for young men, for soldiers, for graveyards, for flowers.) FOLLOW ME It's by far the hardest thing I've ever done to be so in love with you and so alone.
*Follow me where I go, what I do and who I know.
Make it part of you to be a part of me.
Follow me up and down, all the way and all around, Take my hand and say you'll follow me.
It's long been on my mind, you know it's been a long, long time I'll try to find a way that I can make you understand.
The way I feel about you and just how much I need you To be there where I can talk to you when there's no one else around.* You see, I'd like to share my life with you and show you things I've seen, Places where I'm going to and places where I've been.
To have you there beside me and never feel alone, And all the time that you're with me then we will be at home.* Take my hand, and I will follow you...

Goodnight, Chateaugay, as the shadows descend And the white of your ripples turns grey.
Goodnight, comrades true, and goodnight dearest friends, And goodnight for tonight Chateaugay.
The bright sleepless eyes of distant starry skies When we sing, they shall watch us and pray.
And a new day shall be born with a new and gladded morn, So goodnight for tonight, Chateaugay.
