Little Kathy

Swami Kriyananda
January 1, 1980

Sung by Swami Kriyananda, in a concert in Germany approx. 1980.

Lyrics:

1. Little Kathy went dancing, –

Went dancing, went dancing–

Little Kathy went dancing,

Went dancing one day.

She danced out in the garden –

The garden, the garden–

She danced out in the garden,

Her heart was so gay.

 

Chorus: Lara la liri,

Oh, lara la lay,

Little Kathy went dancing,

Her heart was so gay.

Lara la liri, Oh, lara la lay,

Little Kathy went dancing,

Her heart was so gay.

 

2. There she saw a small robin –

Small robin, small robin–

There she saw a small robin, it sat in a tree.

“Little friend, come and join me, –

Come join me, come join me–

Little friend, come and join me,

Come dancing with me!”

 

3. “I’m afraid I’d look silly –

Look silly, look silly–

I’m afraid I’d look silly,”

The robin said then.

“For I’m timid and tiny –

And tiny, and tiny–

For I’m timid and tiny,

Birds can’t dance like men.”

 

4. “But you’ve wings you can fly with –

Can fly with, can fly with–

But you’ve wings you can fly with,

Why strut like a man?

Everyone can do something –

Do something, do something–

Everyone can do something,

It’s part of life’s plan.”

 

5. “Let’s go call all our neighbors –

Our neighbors, our neighbors–

Let’s go call all our neighbors,

The large and the small.

All the world should be dancing –

Be dancing, be dancing–

All the world should be dancing,

For God made us all!”
