Peter, Paul and Mary

Peter, Paul and Mary were a US folk-singing trio whose nearly 50-year career began with their rise to become a paradigm for 1960s folk music. The trio was composed of Peter Yarrow, Paul Stookey and Mary Travers. After the death of Mary Travers in 2009, Yarrow and Stookey continued to perform as a duo under their individual names. more »

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? 
I'm gonna send thee three by three
Three for the Hebrew children
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? 
I'm gonna send thee four by four 
Four for the four that stood at the door
Three for the Hebrew children
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? 
I'm gonna send thee five by five
Five for the five that stayed alive
Four for the four that stood at the door
Three for the Hebrew children
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? 
I'm gonna send thee six by six
Six for the six that never got fixed
Five for the five that stayed alive
Four for the four that stood at the door
Three for the Hebrew children
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? 
I'm gonna send thee seven by seven
Seven for the seven who never got to heav'n
Six for the six that never got fixed
Five for the five that stayed alive
Four for the four that stood at the door
Three for the Hebrew children
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? 
I'm gonna send thee eight by eight
Eight for the eight that stood at the gate
Seven for the seven who never got to heav'n
Six for the six that never got fixed
Five for the five that stayed alive
Four for the four that stood at the door
Three for the Hebrew children
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? 
I'm gonna send thee nine by nine
Nine for the nine that dressed so fine
Eight for the eight that stood at the gate
Seven for the seven who never got to heav'n
Six for the six that never got fixed
Five for the five that stayed alive
Four for the four that stood at the door
Three for the Hebrew children
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? 
I'm gonna send thee ten by ten
Ten for the Ten Commandments
Nine for the nine that dressed so fine
Eight for the eight that stood at the gate
Seven for the seven who never got to heav'n
Six for the six that never got fixed
Five for the five that stayed alive
Four for the four that stood at the door
Three for the Hebrew children
Two for Paul and Silas
One for the itty bitty baby
Who was born, born, born in Bethlehem.

He was born, born, born in Bethlehem.
