Malvina Reynolds: Song Lyrics and Poems  

Let's Have a Picnic

Notes: words and music by Malvina Reynolds; copyright 1957 by Malvina Reynolds, assigned 1963 to Schroder Music Company.

Let's have a picnic. Let's go on a picnic.
Let's fill up the baskets with sandwiches and pie.
We'll run from the alleys and dance thru the valleys
And climb up the mountains a block below the sky.
We'll go where ants and bees live and we won't be invited.
We'll share our jam and cheese with them and they will be delighted.
A pic-pic-picnic.
