Quiet Songs

Tzena (I always found the spelling funny)
Tzena, Tzena, Tzena, Tzena,
can't you hear the music playing In the village square?
Tzena, Tzena, Tzena, Tzena,
can't you hear the music playing In the village square?
Tzena, Tzena, join the celebration,
There'll be people there from every nation,
Dawn will find us dancing in the sunlight,
Dancing in the village square (village square)

This of course can be a round, I think I have done a split up to 8 parts before.

MAKE NEW FRIENDS
Make new friends and keep the old
One is silver and the other gold.

I LIKE THE FLOWERS
I like the flowers,
I love the daffodils,
I like the mountains,
I love the rolling hills.
I like the fire-side when all the lights are low;
Boom-di-ar-a, Boom-di-ar-a, Boom-di-ar-a... repeat

This can be split into 4 parts (I don't think I have done it any bigger than that)

LAND OF THE SILER BIRCH
1. Land of the silver birch home of the beaver,
Where the mighty moose wanders at will.
Blue lake and rocky shore, I will return once more
Boom di-di eye eye, Boom di-di eye eye, Boom di-di eye eye boom

2. My heart is sick for you here in the low lands
I will return to you, hills of the North.
Blue lake and rocky shore, I will return once more
Boom di-di eye eye, Boom di-di eye eye, Boom di-di eye eye boom

3. Swift as a silver fish, canoe of birch bark,
Thy mighty waters carry me forth.
Blue lake and rocky shore, I will return once more
Boom di-di eye eye, Boom di-di eye eye, Boom di-di eye eye boom

4. There where the blue lakes lie, I'll set my wigwam,
Close to the water's edge, silent and still.
Blue lake and rocky shore, I will return once more
Boom di-di eye eye, Boom di-di eye eye, Boom di-di eye eye boom

TAPS
Day is done, gone the sun
From the sea, from the hills, from the sky
All is well safely rest
God is nigh

Thanks and praise, for our days
Neath the sun, neath the stars, neath the sky
As we go, this we know
God is nigh

KUM BA YAH
Kum ba Yah my Lord, Kum ba Yah (3 times)
O Lord KKum ba Yah!

Someone's crying Lord, Kum ba Yah
Someone's praying Lord, Kum ba Yah
Someone's singing Lord, Kum ba Yah

CAMPFIRES BURING
Campfires burning, campfires burning
Draw nearer, draw nearer
In the gloaming, in the gloaming
Come sing and be merry

BARGES
Out of my windown looking in the night
I can see the barges' flickering light
Silently flows the river to the sea
And the barges too go silently

Chorus:
Barges, I would like to go with you
I would like to sail the ocean blue
Barges, have you treasures in your hold?
Do you fight with pirates brave and bold?

Out of my window looking in the night
I can see the barges' flickering light
Starboard shines green and port is glowing red
I can see them flickering far ahead

ROSEN FRA FUNN (Danish song)
Rosen fra funn (repeat 4 times per verse)

[nice song to sing as a round]

I have been pondering how to set this out. I am thinking of having some headings (posts) and then adding the songs underthem:
Quiet songs
Loud songs
Action songs
Closing songs
Not really songs
Sketches
Shouts

My falling apart paper book is moving to the web. Now I have no job I will have plenty of time to type them all in... Anyone is welcome to contribute.
