Only A Boy Named David Lyrics

Only A Boy Named David

By (Arthur Arnott)

I must say of all the songs I ever led for Bible school,
this is the one that the kids loved the best! They can
imagine a little boy using a sling shot to kill a giant.
Actions for the words follow the lyrics. Leave lots of
room for the kids to swing their sling shot (imaginary, of course)

Lyrics:

Only a boy named David
Only a little sling
Only a boy named David
But he could pray and sing
Only a boy named David
Only a rippling brook
Only a boy named David
But five little stones he took.

And one little stone went in the sling
And the sling went round and round
And one little stone went in the sling
And the sling went round and round
And round and round And round and round
And round and round and round
And one little stone went up in the air
And the giant came tumbling down.

ACTIONS:

On the chorus: And one little stone went in the sling: pretend to put stone in sling
And the sling went round and round: twirl sling overhead round and round (continuing)
And one little stone went up in the air: motion like releasing stone from sling
And the giant came tumbling down: everyone falls to the ground
