Lyr Req: pete seeger: arrange and rearrange

DigiTrad:
BIG MUDDY
DON'T ASK WHAT A RIVER IS FOR
FLOWERS OF PEACE
I MIND MY OWN BUSINESS
MY GET UP AND GO HAS GOT UP AND WENT
MY OLD BROWN EARTH
OH, HAD I A GOLDEN THREAD
OLD DEVIL TIME
ONE GRAIN OF SAND
PRECIOUS FRIEND
QUITE EARLY MORNING
SAILING DOWN MY DIRTY STREAM
SAILING DOWN MY GOLDEN RIVER
SOUR CREAM
TURN, TURN, TURN or TO EVERYTHING THERE IS A SEASON
WALKING DOWN DEATH ROW
WELL MAY THE WORLD GO

Hi folks, I've transcribed the words for the first second and third stanzas. Is there anybody who can help me with the fouth fifth and sixth?

4. Early in the morning I'm a gathering ..... I say a little prayer for the maple like old mama Quad? and the nothwest sloop

makes she live for another century

5. Sometimes I wake in the middle of the night and...

There's a time to laugh, there's a time to weep, a time to make a big change wake you... Thanks, Manuel Garrido Sevilla

ARRANGE AND REARRANGE
(Pete Seeger)

Early in the mornin' I first see the sun,
I say a little prayer for the world.
I hope all the children live a long, long time,
Yes, every little boy and little girl.
I hope they learn to laugh at the way
Some wicked old words do seem to change,
'Cause that's what life's all about:
To arrange and rearrange and rearrange.
Oh-wee, oh-wye, to rearrange and rearrange and rearrange.
Oh-wee, oh-wye, to rearrange and rearrange and rearrange.

I heard the first yowl of a brand new baby
And I said a little prayer for the world.
I hope all the children live a long, long time,
Yes, every little boy and little girl.
I hope they learn to laugh at the way
Some precious old words do seem to change,
'Cause that's what life's all about:
To arrange and rearrange and rearrange.
Oh-wee, oh-wye, to rearrange and rearrange and rearrange.
Oh-wee, oh-wye, to rearrange and rearrange and rearrange.

Early in the morning I'm a gathering the sap
And I say a little prayer for the maple.
Like big Mama Quad, on the northwest slope,
I'll protect her as long as I'm able.
She gives more sap year after year
Than any single other tree.
So bring on the pancakes! Here's to Mama Quad,
May she live for another century.
Oh-wee, oh-wye, may she live for another century.
Oh-wee, oh-wye, may she live for another century.

Sometimes I wake in the middle of the night
And rub my achin' old eyes.
Is that a voice from inside my head
Or does it come down from the sky?
There's a time to laugh but there's a time to weep
And a time to make a big change.
Wake up you bum the time has come to arrange and rearrange and rearrange.
Oh-wee, oh-wye, to rearrange and rearrange and rearrange.
Oh-wee, oh-wye, to rearrange and rearrange and rearrange.

Perhaps the biggest change will come
When we don't have to change much at all.
When maniacs holler "grow, grow, grow"
We can choose to be small.
The key word may be "little,"
We only have to change a little bit.
Eat a little food, drink a little drink,
And only have to shit a little shit.
Oh-wee, oh-wye, and only have to shit a little shit.
Oh-wee, oh-wye, and only have to shit a little shit.

Early in the morning I first see the sun
I say a little prayer for the world.
I hope all the children live a long, long time,
Yes, every little boy and little girl.
I hope they learn to laugh at the way
Some wicked old words do seem to change,
'Cause that's what life's all about:
To arrange and rearrange and rearrange.
Oh-wee, oh-wye, to rearrange and rearrange and rearrange.
Oh-wee, oh-wye, to rearrange and rearrange and rearrange.

Yes indeed.
