  1. The Ballad of Lewis & Clark

It was eighteen four, not a day before, we left our homes and families!

For three long years and lots of tears we wandered through the land.

We had no plan to show the way, but to a man we’re glad to say, the road was long but like the song, we’re back!

We are Lewis and Clark! Clark and Lewis! Headin’ West to see what we could find.

Yes, we’re Lewis and Clark! Clark and Lewis! Doin’ our best for all of human kind.
They headed out of St. Louis and up the wide Missouri.

Sent by Thomas Jefferson to see what they could see.

To do their best and see the west, they couldn’t wait, they couldn’t rest. They paved the way for new discovery.

They were Lewis and Clark! Clark and Lewis! Headin’ West to see what they could find.

Yes, they’re Lewis and Clark! Clark and Lewis! Doin’ their best for all of human kind.
There were forty seven men in all and a guide Sacajawea. Man called York, a great big dog and an oaf named Charbonneau.

Two keelboats in which to cruise, guns and gifts and two canoes, no one knew exactly where they’d go!

They were Lewis and Clark! Clark and Lewis! Headin’ West to see what they could find.

They were Lewis and Clark! Clark and Lewis! Doin’ their best for all of human kind! We’re back!




  1. Let’s Make A Deal

[Napoleon Solo] O my name’s Napoleon Bonapart and I got a deal for you.

I’m in danger of being blown apart so I make this appeal to you.

All eyes are fixed on you! All hopes are fixed on you!

It’s yours, you’re really in some luck, for fifteen million bucks!


Oh his name’s Napoleon Bonapart and has he got a deal for you?

He’s in danger of being blown apart so he makes this appeal to you.

His eyes are fixed on your. His claws are in to you.

It can be yours, you’re really in some luck for fifteen million bucks!

You were sent out to buy just New Orleans but since he’s so incredibly poor.

You’ll do well if you went home with more.

[Napoleon Solo] I think I know just how you feel come now boys lets make a deal!

Come now boys let’s make a deal.

Come now boys let’s make make a deal!

[Monroe & Livingston] We’ll take it! Sold!




  1. Life’s “Ruff!”

[Scannon Solo] Gnats and flies, ticks and fleas, about a million mosquitoes and bees,

Rats and worms, things that squirm and anything else that’s covered with germs.

[ALL] They can say it was a great adventure, and all that kind of stuff,

But let me clue you in baby, from one who knows it was “ruff!”

Trav’ling ev’ryday’s ruff! Ruff! Never time to play’s ruff! Ruff!

Sleeping in the hay, rain in June and May, tried to run away, man I have to say!

[Scannon Solo] There were snakes and bears, no one cares, especially when you’re covered with hair!

Snow and sleet makes you beat, especially when there’s nothing to eat.

[ALL] They can say it was a great adventure, and all that kind of stuff,

But let me clue you in baby, from one who knows it was “ruff!”

Fighting rattlesnakes ruff! Ruff! With a bellyache’s ruff! Ruff!

Falling through a lake, playing give or take, please give me a break, it’s a big mistake!

It was Ruff! Ruff! Ruff! Ruff! Ruff! Ruff! Ruff!

Ruff! Ruff! Ruff! Ruff! Ruff! Ruff! Ruff! Ruff! Ruff! Ruff! Ruff!


They can say it was a great adventure and all that kind of stuff

but let me clue you in baby, from one who knows it was ruff! (2x)

Ruff! Ruff! Ruff! Ruff! Ruff! Ruff! Ruff! Ruff! Ruff! Ruff!


  1. This Is Our Home

This is our home! This is our land!

Hills and valleys, mountains and sand.

Generations lived here alone.

Strangers, this is our home! /Strangers, this is our home!

Strangers, this is our home! /This is our home!

Welcome strangers, stay as our friends. The beauty of our land never ends.

When you decide you need room to stand,

This will still be our land! /This will still be our land!

This will still be our land! /Still be our land!
This is our place this is our dream.

Ev’ry river, every stream.

Snow capped mountains, oceans of foam

Strangers this is our home. / Strangers this is our home.

Strangers this is our home. /This is our home!


  1. Fork In the Road

Travlin’ a long

Doin’ just fine,

We were some kind of collection.

Which way to go?

Your way or mine.

Try’n not to lose our direction.

Then came a fork in the road, a branch in the river.

A fork in the road, which way do we go?

A fork in the road now what can we do?

Better take the fork in the road!


Sometimes our life/Sometimes our life

Is just like that/is just like that

It’s hard to know where you’re goin’./where you’re goin’.

Choices come up/Choices come up

Everyday./everyday

It’s all a part of us growin’./of our growin’.

Just take that fork in the road, the branch in the river.

That fork in the road, which way do we go?

That fork in the road, now what can we do?

Better take the fork in the road!


Now you could go to the left, go to the right, go straight ahead or just sit tight.

Sometimes life is just like that, it’s hard to know just where you’re at, this or that!

Just take that fork in the road, the branch in the river.

The fork in the road which way do we go?

The fork in the road, now what can we do?

Better take the fork in the, not the spoon or knife but the, better take the fork in the road! Rororodeodo!




  1. Wayfarin’ Stranger

I’m just a poor wayfarin’ stranger a wand’ring through this world of woe.

But there’s no sickness, toil nor danger in the bright land to which I go.

I’m goin’ there to see my maker.

I’m goin’ there no more to roam.

I’m just a goin’ over yonder.

I’m just a go in’ over home. (2x)


[Sacajawea Solo] I’m just a goin’ over home.

[York solo] I’m just a goin’ over home.

[ALL] I’m just a goin’ over home.


  1. Tumblin’ Waters

Oh, tumblin’ waters, always rushin’ away.

Over the hills and valleys; Please, please take me away.

I’ve been away for so long, I just don’t know where to stay.

Once I was lost but now I am found. You have to take me away.

Woh oh woh, tumblin’ waters.

Go oh woh, go with me.

Take me along tumblin’ waters.

Take me along to the sea!


Oh, tumblin’ waters, always rushin’ away.

Movin’ from mountain to mountain. Runnin’ on to the sea.

What keeps you goin’ and goin’ Day after day after day.

Once I was lost but now I am found. Please won’t you take me away.

Woh oh woh, tumblin’ waters.

Go oh woh, go with me.

Take me along tumblin’ waters.

Take me along to the sea!





  1. O! The Joy!

O! the joy, the regal majesty. O! the joy of the sea.

O! the dreams of great discovery. O! the joy of a land that is free.

O! the joy of a land that is free!
O! the dreams become reality when the river meets the sea.

And the stream of new discovery. Brings joy to a land that is free.

Brings joy to a land that is free!
O! the joy, divine nobility of the earth of the sky.

O! the wonder of tranquility. O! the earth, O! the sky, O! the sea.



O! the dreams, O! the land. O! the joy!
