Swing Low, Sweet Chariot (Hashing Version)

Chorus:

Swing low, sweet chariot.
Cumming for to carry me home.
Swing low, sweet chariot.
Cumming for to carry me home.

I looked over Jordan, and what did I see?
Cumming for to carry me home.
A band of angels cumming after me.
Cumming for to carry me home.

(Chorus)

Sometimes I'm up, and sometimes I'm down,
Cumming for to carry me home.
But still my soul feels heavenly bound.
Cumming for to carry me home.

(Chorus)

If you get there before I do,
Cumming for to carry me home.
Tell all my friends I'm cumming there too.
Cumming for to carry me home.

 

Variations:

  • Humming: Pack hums chorus with gestures.
  • Silently: Pack does chorus silently with gestures only, except for the word cumming, which is shouted out aloud.
  • Ray Charles: Pack closes eyes and sings chorus with gestures, moving head from side to side with the beat.
  • Scooby Doo: Pack sings chorus with gestures using a semi-deep voice with every word beginning with the letter 'W' (Wing Wow, Weet Warriot, etc).
