    from The Song of Hiawatha
    by  Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
    By the shore of Gitchie Gumee,
    By the shining Big-Sea-Water,
    At the doorway of his wigwam,
    In the pleasant Summer morning,
    Hiawatha stood and waited. 
     
     
     
    First I saw the white bear, then I saw the black;
    Then I saw the camel with a hump upon his back...
    by William Makepeace Thackeray


     
     
    When I was sick and lay a-bed,
    I had two pillows at my head,
    And all my toys beside me lay
    To keep me happy all the day.
    by Robert Louis Stevenson

    Cha Cha Slide
    To the left, take it back now ya’ll
    1 hop this time, right foot let’s stomp
    Left foot let’s stomp, Cha Cha real smooth

    Turn it down, to the left
    Take it back now ya’ll
    1 hop this time, right foot let’s stomp
    Left foot let’s stomp, Cha Cha now ya’ll
