Reuben, Reuben is a lively folk song that would work well with a 7th or 8th grade girls choir. The text is about sending the boys away “far beyond the Northern Sea.” As it turns out, they are only fooling. The verses are followed by a chorus of rhythmic and accented laughter. Sung with good humor, this song is a favorite.
