Subject: Need lyrics for outdoorschool songs
From: Arcangle@aracnet.com
Date: 21 May 97 - 01:04 AM

Alright, If you have any Outdoor school songs please mail lyrics to me via e-mail.

I'm looking for rest of lyrics to a song that goes something like this: " Say goodnight.... too......, Day is done... And down goes the sun...., Say goodnight to you.....? I need the rest of those lyric before summer.

A song I think called magic Penny but its not about a giving love away, It goes something like " A magic penny says the things words can't say" I think that is how it goes. IF YOU ARE STAFF AT CAMP HOWARD IN CORBETT OREGON, YOU SHOULD KNOW THIS SONG.

Thanks

Love is something if you give it away/ give it away/give it away/ Love is something if you give it away/ It comes right back to you. Refrain: It's just like a magic penny Hold it tight and you won't have any spend it, lend it, give it away It comes right back to you.

A smile is something if you givie it away... etc happiness is something if you give it away... etc

Nowadays I have no memory for lyrics, but those old camp songs last forever!

The Magic Penny quoted by Cathy Brady (while not the one you're looking for), is on "I've Got A Song!" by Sandy and Caroline Paton on Folkways (I think).

Don't know the other song, but it seems like a derivative of "Taps."

As far as other camp, outdoor, or singalong songs -- I know hundreds. Are you looking for any particular songs? Here's a few popular camp songs:

Father Abraham (had seven sons, and seven sons had...) Dog Named Blue I've Got Sixpence Titanic On Top Of Spaghetti/Old Smokey Barges I Don't Want No More Of Camp (Army) Life Little Brown Jug Mountain Dew Turkey In the Straw

the magic penny son goes like this

" A penny's made of copper,
love is made of hearts,
magic is within us all,
too soon we must depart,
a magic love is in the air,
the spirt round you flies, a magic penny means i care, your magic in my eyes.

(Chorus)
For a magic penny says the things no words can say,
its a silent song of friendship that has grown,
to someone who gives back to you, the love you gave away,
a magic penny will never be alone


for nothing can be had, from a penny you don't spend,
love can never grow inside till given to a friend,
i've learned so much from all of you i wish this would not end, but if we learned to share our love it will come back again.

(chorus)

two little boys is always a good one
^^
Two little boys had two little toys
Each had a wooden horse
Gaily they played each summer's day
Warriors both of course
One little chap then had a mishap
Broke off his horse's head
Wept for his toy then cried with joy
As his young playmate said

Did you think I would leave you crying
When there's room on my horse for two
Climb up here Jack and don't be crying
I can go just as fast with two
When we grow up we'll both be soldiers
And our horses will not be toys
And I wonder if we'll remember
When we were two little boys

Long years had passed, war came so fast
Bravely they marched away
Cannon roared loud, and in the mad crowd
Wounded and dying lay
Up goes a shout, a horse dashes out
Out from the ranks so blue
Gallops away to where Joe lay
Then came a voice he knew

Did you think I would leave you dying
When there's room on my horse for two
Climb up here Joe, we'll soon be flying
I can go just as fast with two
Did you say Joe I'm all a-tremble
Perhaps it's the battle's noise
But I think it's that I remember
When we were two little boys

Do you think I would leave you dying
There's room on my horse for two
Climb up here Joe, we'll soon by flying
Back to the ranks so blue
Can you feel Joe I'm all a tremble
Perhaps it's the battle's noise
But I think it's that I remember
When we were two little boys
and another one is cowboy's lullaby

o and flickerFLICKER


The flicker of the campfire, the wind in the pines
The stars in the heavens, the moon that shines
A place where people gather to meet friends of all kinds
A place where old man trouble is always left behind

So give me the light of a campfire, warm and bright
And give me some friends to sing with, I'll be here all night
Love is where you find it; I've found mine right here
Just you and me and the campfire and songs we love to hear

So give me the light of a campfire, warm and bright
And give me some friends to sing with, I'll be here all night
Love is where you find it; I've found mine right here
Just you and me and the campfire and songs we love to hear
Desert blue and silver in the still moon-shine,
Coyote yappin' lazy on the hill,
Sleepy winks of lightin' down the far sky-line,
Time for millin' cattle to be still,

Chorus
So, now, the lightnin's far away,
The coyote's nothin' skeery,
He's singin' to his dearie,
Hee-ya, tam-ma-la-le-day!
Settle down, you cattle, till the mornin'.

Nothin' out the hazy range that you folks need,
Nothin' we kin see to take you eye,
Yet we got to watch you or you'd all stampede,
Plung-in' down some 'roryo bank to die,

Chorus

Always seein' way-off dreams of silver blue,
Always feelin' thorns that stab and sting,
Yet stampedin' never made a dream come true,
So I ride around myself and sing.

I went to Out Door School at Camp Arrah Wanna, and we sang the Magic Penny song. Also, the other one goes like this:

Say goodnight, too you
Say goodnight, too you
Day is do-o-one
And down goes the su-u-un

BIG RIVER

There's a big river flowing, it'll be there tomorrow
It's time we should be going, there's no time for sorrow
The stars will light the way back home, the song will keep the fire
Remembering the days we've roamed, the song will lift you higher

Chorus:
So sing for the river, and sing for the stars
Sing for the friends you've made, wherever they are
Sing to bring you back again or to take you away
Sing a song for me my friend, sing for today

There's a big river flowing, and it's always in motion
It carves out its journey, on down to the ocean
Now you can choose your path alone, and take it to the sea
Remembering the song's your own, the song will set you free

(Chorus)

We loved outdoor school and we would like to give a special thanks and shout out to Pandora and known as Lucy Rothwell (sorry if spelled wrong) and also a thanks to Lei-Lani also known as Lauren (don't remember last name). We had a lot of fun and hope we can go back to Howard and be good student leaders like them and be in Elk Cabin! We also would like to thank every Outdoor School staff and student leader at Howard for making it a memorable week for all of us and it was so fun! I think the rest of my 9th period science class enjoyed it and we all thank you!

From: GUEST
Date: 03 Nov 10 - 02:59 PM

I have both songs for you...

MAGIC PENNY

A penny's made of copper
Love is made of heart
Magic is within us all
Too soon we must depart
A magic love is in the air
The spirit 'round you flies
A magic penny means I care
You're magic in my eyes


For a magic penny says the things no words can say
It's a silent song of friendship that has grown
To someone who gives back to you the love you give away
A magic friend will never be alone


For nothing can be had from a penny you don't spend
A love can never grow inside 'til given to a friend
I've learned so much from all of you I wish this would not end
But if we learn to share our love it will come back again


For a magic penny says the things no words can say
It's a silent song of friendship that has grown
To someone who gives back to you the love you give away
A magic friend will never be alone


GREEN TREES

Green trees around us
Blue skies above
Friends all around us
In a world filled with love
Taps sounding softly
Hearts beating true
Till we all say... Goodnight to you

Day is done
Gone the sun
From the earth, from the hills, from the sky
All is well, safely rest, and Goodnight.

And I picked up a donut
And I wiped off the grease,
And I handed the lady my five cent piece.

Well she looked at the nickel,
And she looked at me
And she said, "Kind, sir As you can plainly see. There's a hole in the nickel And it goes right through."
And I said, "There's a hole in the donut, too! Thanks for the donut, so long!"

Actually I learned the big river song like this:

There's a big river flowing, it'll be there tomorrow/ it's time we should be going, cause there's no time for sorrow/ the stars will light the way back home/ the song'll keep the fire/ remembering the days we've roamed/ this song'll lift you higher

Chorus: So sing for the river and sing for the stars/ sing for the friends you've made/ wherever they are/ sing to bring you back again, or to take you away/ sing a song for me, my friend/ sing for today

There's a big river flowing, and it's always in motion/ carves out it's journey on down to the ocean/ you can choose your path alone/ take it to the sea/ remembering the days we've roamed/ this song'll set you free

Chorus again

That's just how I learned it. I went to 3 different Outdoor Schools, so I think that I should know this song pretty well. They were Cedar Ridge, Magruder, and Westwind (in this order). Camp Westwind was my favorite, because my best friends EVER were in my cabin. If you think that these lyrics are wrong, that's okay because I'm only 12 and I honestly don't care. I just cared enough to put these lyrics on this website because I noticed that GUEST,SP had some of the sentences different from how I learned it.
