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 »

(New words & music by DeCormier/Stookey/Yarrow/Travers)
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.
