kitten

Oh my darling, oh my darling...

I'm putting together a program that involves babies, which involves singing, which involves me going through kids' songbooks. I came across "Clementine", which I liked a lot as a kid. I never knew all the lyrics, just the first verse and the chorus that everyone knows.

In a cavern, in a canyon
Excavating for a mine
Lived a miner forty-niner
And his daughter, Clementine

chorus
Oh my darling, oh my darling
Oh my darling Clementine
You are lost and gone forever
Oh my darling Clementine


The rest of the lyrics are...odd. Collapse )

I used to have one of my completely psychotic characters sing this song whenever he was feeling particularly murderous. How apt it was.

I SO am going to sing this for babies.
