Subject: Help: Wolf Songs

Hi there!

My choir ( Vox Magicka ) are singing a pagan conference in Crawley ( just out side London ) with a pack of wolves. Honest ! How ever we would like some songs about wolves to sing there. So far all we have is Of Wolf And Man by Metallica. Any suggestions?

TTFN M'Lady P.

I put wolf and then wolves in the white DT and Forum search box and came up with a lot of stuff. Of course, I got Kate Wolf and Wolf Tone, but there is a lot there to sift through. Oh, and that was 2 searches, not one.

Do "Fox on the Run" then look all confused and say "Oh, you meant WOLVES!"

Los Lobos "Will the Wolf Survive" is the only wolf song I know...

John Hartford's "Wolves A-Hollerin'". I think Hills and Mangsen also recorded it as "Wolves A-Howling'".

I see a wolf ate my cookie. Damn that Red Riding Hood wandering through the woods, feeding the animals, and causing them to lose their fear of humans.

Thanks for the american indian page, Karen, I've jotted down a couple of the chants for the choir to have a look at. Unfortunately I don't think the idea is to have songs where the wolves are being nasty to people, so I don't think I'll be able to use any of the songs people have been kind enough to dig out for me! Thanks again every one.

Well, you really ought to sing something to the wolf pack since they so thoughtfully invited you for dinner. How about "The Grizzly Bride" or "The Warewolves of London"? Maybe something by Howling Wolf or Kate Wolf?

A kind of New Age wolf song is "Wolf-Tell Me Your Name" by Carolyn McDade & the Singers of the Sacred Web. There's a lot of miscellaneous howling on the CD followed by harmonious singing, with no obvious gnashing of teeth as a final confrontation as wolves meet(!) people.

DANCING WITH WOLVES
(TUNE: Waltzing With Bears; words: Dale Connely)

It wasn't that we didn't treat him OK
It wasn't that he wasn't given his way
Free room and board, he had nothing to pay
But still Uncle Walter went dancing that day.

CH:
He went da da da da da dancing with wolves
Werey wolves, scary wolves, hairy wolves too
There's nothing on you that a wolf wouldn't chew
If you went out dancing, dancing and prancing
If you went out dancing, went dancing with wolves

Now a wolf is a creature tha roams with the pack
When cornered or hungry, they're prone to attack
I told him, "Be careful" I begged him in fact
But now Uncle Walter is not coming back

CH

Now some people think they can waltz with a bear
Or polka with wolves, or birds in the air
I say it's unlikely, exceedingly rare
To find a wild creature, that's willing to meet you
To socialize, visit, or dance anywhere.

CH

I heard somewhere that animals are more likely to sing along if you are in the key of Db Major... or relative keys. Don't know if that's accurate or not.

I'll see if I can hunt up some wolf songs for you...

how about come near at your peril, Canadian Wolf. (Newfoundland anti-confederation song..) And maybe someome mentioned it but there is a song I have seen lyrics for about a woman who goes to a shindig in a sleigh and doesnt want to wear a coat..I think she died of cold and maybe the wolves ate her. Must be some Russian ones. How about this (from poor memory) by Kipling.

This is the law of the jungle As old and as true as the sky And the wolf that will keep it will flourish And the wolf that will break it will die Like the the ?? that girdles the treetrunk The law runneth forward and back For the pack is the law of the wolf And the wolf is the law of the pack.

Dire Wolf by the Grateful Dead. (Workingman's Dead) ...When I awoke, the dire wolf, six hundred pounds of sin
Was grinning at the window, all I said was "Come on in",
Don't murder me, I beg of you don't murder me
Please, don't murder me.

Subject: Lyr Add: WHO'S AFRAID OF THE BIG BAD WOLF?
From: Jim Dixon
Date: 10 Nov 16 - 06:48 PM

Wikipedia has an article about this song:


WHO'S AFRAID OF THE BIG BAD WOLF?
Words and music by Frank Churchill with additional lyrics by Ann Ronell, ©1933.
As recorded by Harry Reser and his Eskimos with vocal by Loretta Clemens, 1933.

One little, two little, three little pigs.
(And one bad wolf.)
That's all!

VERSE 1: Long ago there were three pigs,
Little handsome piggy-wigs.
For the big bad, very big, very bad wolf
They didn't give three figs.

Number One was very gay,
And he built his house with hay.
With a hey-hey-toot he blew on his flute,
And he played around all day.

Number Two was fond of jigs,
And so he built his house with twigs.
Hey-diddle-diddle! He played on his fiddle
And danced with a lady pig.

Number Three said: "Nix on tricks!
I will build my house with bricks."
He had no chance to sing and dance,
'Cause work and play don't mix.

(Ah-ha-ha-ha, ha-ha-ha-ha,
Ha-ha-ha-ha, ha-ha-ha!)

CHORUS: Who's afraid of the big bad wolf,
The big bad wolf? Not me!
Who's afraid of the big bad wolf?
Ha-ha-ha-ha, ha!

VERSE 2: Came the day when fate did frown,
And the wolf blew into town.
With a "puff-puff-puff" he puffed just enough
And the hay house fell right down.

One and Two were scared to death
Of the big bad wolfie's breath.
"By the hair of your chinny-chin, I'll blow you in"
And the twig house answered yes.

No one left but number Three
To save the piglet family.
When they knocked, he fast unlocked
And said: "Come in with me!"

Now they all were safe inside
And the bricks hurt wolfie's pride,
So, he slid down the chimney, and, oh, by Jimney
In the fire he was fried.

(Ah-ha-ha-ha, ha-ha-ha-ha,
Ha-ha-ha-ha, ha-ha-ha!)

CHORUS: Ah, who's afraid of the big bad wolf,
The big bad wolf? Not me!
Who's afraid of the big bad wolf?
Ha-ha-ha-ha, ha!

What bad wolf?

Subject: Lyr Add: AND THE BIG BAD WOLF WAS DEAD
From: Jim Dixon
Date: 10 Nov 16 - 08:21 PM

My transcription from YouTube:


(I WENT HUNTING) AND THE BIG BAD WOLF WAS DEAD
Words and music by Val Burton & Will Jason ©1934.
As recorded by Joe Haymes and His Orchestra, 1934.

I went hunting one fine day and my bullets were made of lead.
It was bing-bang-bing and a boom-boom-boom and the big bad wolf was dead.
Oh, I took my gun and I went like this and I shot 'im right through the head.
It was bing-bang-bing and a boom-boom-boom and the big bad wolf was dead.
Tra-la-la-la-la-la-la! We won't worry anymore.
Tra-la-la-la-la-la-la! No more wolf at anyone's door.
Now we can go out and play and earn our daily bread,
'Cause I bing-bang-binged and I boom-boom-boomed and the big bad wolf was dead.

(I say there! Tally-ho, Frank Buck! What kind of game are you hunting today?)

Hunting tiger or the lion
Doesn't call for nerves of iron.
Fifteen's(?) quite a sissy sport to me.
To me it never did seem fair
To take advantage of a bear
Or chase a little fox up in a tree.

Once I heard the tally-ho
And then a-hunting I did go.
I wore my hunting lid.
And let me tell you, stranger,
That I saved the world from danger
When I hunted while I did.

We were drinking all night long and the drinks went to my head.
(It was "Drink hearty, pal, and here's to you" and the big bad wolf was dead)
Oh, I took my glass and I drained it dry and my pal took me right to bed.
(It was good old fate and ... and the big bad wolf was dead.)
Vo-de-o and ho-de-ho! We won't worry anymore.
Skiddum-skaddum, heighdy-hee! No more wolf at anyone's door.
Now I can go out and sing and cool my fevered head,
('Cause we sobered him up and we poured him down and the big bad wolf was dead.)

(I sure am glad the big bad wolf am dead now, and swing on!)
