Peter, Paul & MaryChildren Go Where I Send Thee

Children go where I send thee: how shall I send thee? Well, I'm gonna send thee one by one One for the little bitty baby Who was born, born, born in Bethlehem Said he was born, born, born in Bethlehem Children go where I send thee: how shall I send thee? Hey, I'm gonna send thee two by two Two for Paul and Silas One for the itty bitty baby Who was born, born, born in Bethlehem. Children go where I send thee: how shall I send thee? (*repeat, singing verses in descending order*) I'm gonna send the: Three by three, three for the Hebrew children Four by four, four for the four that stood at the door Five by five, five for the five that stayed alive Six by six, six for the six that never got fixed Seven by seven, seven for the seven who never got to heav'n Eight by eight, eight for the eight that stood at the gate Nine by nine, nine for the nine that dressed so fine Ten by ten, ten for the ten commandments He was born, born, born in Bethlehem.
