David’s Song by David Kai ©2001 Tune: There were three jolly fishermen

Now David was a shepherd boy, Now David was a shepherd boy,

Walking with his staff, staff, staff, Leading sheep along the path, Now David was a shepherd boy.

Now David played upon the harp, Now David played upon the harp,

Played upon the harp, harp, harp, Playing notes both flat and sharp, Now David played upon the harp.

Now David met a giant strong, Now David met a giant strong,

Fought him with a sling and rock, Gave Goliath quite a shock! Now David met a giant strong.

Now David was a mighty king, Now David was a mighty king,

Led them in a song, song, song, Praising God the whole day long, Now David was a mighty king,

Now David thought he’d build God’s house, Now David thought he’d build God’s house,

Thought he’d build it in his day, But his plans all slipped away, Now David thought he’d build God’s house.

Now David, he grew very old, Now David, he grew very old,

David, he grew very old. And his story is all told, Now David, he grew very old.
