RIP VAN WINKLE
The Devotions

Note: This song has a "background" song played with the
main song and music, making it unusually difficult
to make out the words. Here is my attempt:

Intro: Sound of rolling bowling ball and falling pins.
"Wow-wee a strike!"

Background: Boom-boom, boom boom-a-boom-boom
Boom-boom, boom boom-a-boom-boom
Rip Van Winkle, Rip van Winkle
Sleep, sleep, sleep
Rip Van Winkle, Rip Van Winkle
Sleep, sleep, sleep


He fell asleep in the woods one day
Spent 20 years of his life that way.
That nagging wife took all of his coin
None of his friends could he ever join
(Sleep, sleep, sleep)

He left his nagging wife now
(He slept for 20 years)
Didn't bother to wake up
(He grew a long white beard)
This is how the story goes
(Listen my children and you will hear)

He fell asleep in the woods one day
Spent 20 years of his life that way
Thoselittle elves bowling on the green
Dream, dream, dream
Those little men bowling in his dream
Dream, dream, dream
Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz (snoring)
(rolling ball, pins falling, "wow-wee!")
