The Grand Old Duke of York


(Sung to the tune of "A-Hunting We Will Go")

The Grand old Duke of York,
He had ten thousand men.
He marched them up the hill,
(Everyone stands up)
And marched them down again.
(Everyone sits down)

And when you're up, you're up;
(Everyone stands up)
And when you're down, you're down.
(Everyone sits down)

And when you're only halfway up,
(Everyone half-way up)
You're neither up nor down!

Catalina Matalina

Catalina Matalina


CHORUS:
Catalina Madalina, Hoopin Stina, Golden Miner
Ogan, Logan, Bogan was her name. (what a shame!)

She had two hairs on the top of her head
One was alive and the other was dead.

Chorus

She had two eyes in the front of her head
One was green and the other was red.

Chorus

She had two teeth in the front of her mouth
One pointed north and the other pointed south.

Chorus

Her nose was so long that when she sneezed
It got caught in between her knees.

Chorus

Her ears stuck out like the sails of a boat
Her Adam’s apple wandered up and down her throat.

Chorus

She loved to polish her fingernails
She bought her polish in ten gallon pails.

Chorus

The language that she spoke was an awful joke
Her head was made out of solid oak

Chorus

Her feet were flat as bathroom mats
I forgot to ask how they got like that.

Chorus

The Bear Went Over the Mountain


(Sung to the tune of "For He's a Jolly Good Fellow")

The bear went over the mountain, the bear went over the mountain
The bear went over the mountain, to see what he could see.
And all that he could see, and all that he could see
Was the other side of the mountain, the other side of the mountain
The other side of the mountain, was all that he could see.

The bear went over the river, the bear went over the river
The bear went over the river, to see what he could see.
And all that he could see, and all that he could see
Was the other side of the river, the other side of the river
The other side of the river, was all that he could see.

Do Your Ears Hang Low

Categories // Silly songs

Do Your Ears Hang Low


Do Your Ears Hang Low?
Do They Wobble to and Fro?
Can You Tie Them in a Knot?
Can You Tie Them in a Bow?
Can You Throw Them Over Your Shoulder Like a Continental Soldier?
Do Your Ears Hang Low?

Do Your Ears Hang High?
Do They Reach Up to the Sky?
Do The Droop When They're Wet?
Do They Stiffen When They're Dry?
Can You Semaphore Your Neighbor with a Mimimum of Labor?
Do Your Ears Hang High?

Do Your Ears Hang Wide?
Do They Flap From Side to Side?
Do They Wave in the Breeze?
From the Slightest Little Sneeze?
Can You Soar Above the Nation with a Feeling of Elation?
Do Your Ears Hang Wide?

Do Your Ears Fall Off?
When You Give a Great Big Cough?
Do They Lie There on the Ground?
Or Bounce Up at Every Sound?
Can You Stick Them in Your Pocket Just Like Little Davy Crockett?
Do Your Ears Fall Off?

Pink Pajamas

Pink Pajamas


(Sung to the tune of the "Battle Hymn of the Republic")

I wear my pink pajamas, in the summer when it's hot.
I wear my flannel nighties in the winter when it's not.
And sometimes in the springtime and sometimes in the fall,
I jump right in between the sheets with nothing on at all.

Chorus
Glory, glory, What's it to you?;
Glory, glory, What's it to you?
Balmy breezes blowing through ya,
With nothing on at all.

Donkey Riding


Were you ever in Quebec, stowing timber on the deck?
Where's there's a king with a golden crown, riding on a donkey.

Hey Ho!  Away we go!  Donkey riding, Donkey riding!
Hey Ho!  Away we go!  Riding on a donkey!

Were you ever off the horn, where's it's always fine and warm?
Seen the lion and the unicorn, Riding on a donkey.

Hey Ho!  Away we go!  Donkey riding, Donkey riding!
Hey Ho!  Away we go!  Riding on a donkey!

On Top of Spaghetti

Categories // Silly songs

On Top of Spaghetti

(sung to the tune of On Top of Old Smokey)

On top of spaghetti,
All covered with cheese,
I lost my poor meatball,
When somebody sneezed.

It rolled off the table,
And on to the floor,
And then my poor meatball,
Rolled out of the door.

It rolled in the garden,
And under a bush,
And then my poor meatball,
Was nothing but mush.

The mush was as tasty
As tasty could be,
And then the next summer,
It grew into a tree.

The tree was all covered,
All covered with moss,
And on it grew meatballs,
And tomato sauce.

So if you eat spaghetti,
All covered with cheese,
Hold on to your meatball,
Whenever you sneeze.
