Kum Ba Yah

Kum Ba Yah

This is a pretty religious song, so these days it might be avoided if parents are particularly sensitive. With a lot of the religious songs we sang in Girl Scouts growing up, it was easy to replace Lord with Earth, but this one uses it so often I don’t think it would be possible.

Kum Ba yah, my Lord, Kum Ba Yah.
Kum Ba yah, my Lord, Kum Ba Yah.
Kum Ba yah, my Lord, Kum Ba Yah.
Oh, Lord, Kum ba Yah.
Oh, Lord, Kum Ba Yah.
