Exchange Student Songs

 Exchange students sing songs.  Adults expect it.   A good song will be meaningful to the students long after they sing it for an adult audience.

These are some suggestions.

  • John Lennon Imagine
  • Green Day Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)
  • Sarah MacLachlan  I Will Remember You
  • Vitamin C Graduation (Friends Forever)
  • Louis Armstrong What a Wonderful Life
  • Nickelback Photograph
  • Rent Seasons of Love
  • Michael Jackson We Are The World
  • Disney It’s a Small World
  • Jackson and Miller Let There be Peace on Earth

I’m always looking for a new song for the kids.  Leave a comment if you think of any.  Nothing religious, too long, or too difficult for a group to sing.

This is one of the tamer exchange student songs that’s been around for years.

exchanges exchanges a long way from home
We’re highly obnoxious so leave us alone
we drink when we’re thirsty we drink when we’re dry
we drink to get drunk and then we get high ay ay ay…(chorus)
(chorus)sing sing
exchanges exchanges
we live it up
we live it up
we live it up
we do, so pass some more (tequila/rum/vodka/whiskey–depending on the host country)
host brothers and sisters we like you a lot
we hug you and kiss you until we get hot
host mothers and fathers we like you a bit
but when it comes to our curfews we don’t give a shi…ay ay ay ay(chorus)
my school’s really great as far as I know
the longest I’ve been there’s three days in a row
I flunked all my quizes I failed my exams
and frankly my dear I just don’t give a d– ay ay ay ay(chorus)
If the ocean was whiskey and I was a duck
I’d swim to the bottom and drink my way up
But the ocean’s not whiskey and I’m not a duck
So let’s go to (Bremen, Hamburg, Munich, insert any other city in host country here) and have a good fu– ay ay ay ay (Chorus)
exchanges, exchanges, a long way from home,
we are hardly disorganized, so leave us alone.
no drinking, no driving, no dating, no grass,
the rotary rules are a pain in the …

ai, ai, ai, ai, sing, sing exchanges.
we live it up, we live it up, we live it up, we do,
so pass the old budweiser!

some day we’ll be doctors, some day engineers,
but until that day we’ll live unto out beers.
we drink to be sober, we drink to survive,
and if you don’t like it, you can just pass us …

by, ai, ai, ai, sing, sing exchanges.
we live it up, we live it up, we live it up, we do,
so pass the old budweiser!

if the ocean was whiskey and i was a duck,
i’d swim to the bottom and drink my way up.
but the ocean’s not whiskey, and i’m not a duck,
so let’s go to jamestown, and have a good …

fy, ai, ai, ai, sing, sing exchanges.
we live it up, we live it up, we live it up, we do,
so pass the old budweiser!

That was one of the ‘cleaner’ versions. It’s an oldie, the newer ones don’t even bother mentioning beer.
