The Bear Went Over The Mountain

The bear went over the mountain, the bear went over the mountain,
The bear went over the mountain, to see what he could see.
Oh he saw another mountain, he saw another mountain, he saw another mountain, and what do you think he did?
Oh he climbed that other mountain, he climbed that other mountain, he climbed that other mountain, and what do you think he saw?
(and so on..)

Be Kind

Be kind to your web-footed friends
'Cause (for) a duck may be somebody's mother.
Be kind to your friends in the swamp
Where the water (weather) is very damp.
Be nice to the camel in the zoo
for his hump may be hi - i - ding your brother.
Be good to the tiger and the monk
and we will let you smell our favorite pet sku - unk.

[In the version song by Tom Glazer and the Do-Re-Mi Children's Chorus on the record, "On Top of Spaghetti" Kapp Records 1963, they continue with the song. I imagine these next lyrics are made up by Tom, himself; perhaps they all are. Tom sings a line and the children repeat:]

Tom: Be nice to the Monster Mash.
Children: ... the Monster Mash.
Tom: ... the Monster Mash.

Be kind to the purple people eaters.
Children: ... purple people eaters.

Tom: Won't you be so kind to the horrible faces that come here from outer spaces?
Won't you be so kind to your two shoesies and to all your shoesy laces?
Won't you be so kind when teacher thanks you?
Won't you be so kind when daddy spanks you?
[winding down] Won't you be so kind, so kind, so kind, so kind, so kind, so kind, so kind . . .
Children: So kind.

Repeat the first stanza all the way thru, then repeat the first four lines followed by:

You may think that this is the end - well, it is!

Bosco

I hate Bosco
It's not the drink for me
My mommy put it in my milk
To try to poison me
One day I fooled Mommy
I put some in her tea
And now I have no mommy
To try to poison me!

Bubble Gum
My mom gave me a penny
She said go eat at Denny's
But I didn't want no Denny's
Instead I want some bubble gum
Bazooka zooka bubble gum
Bazooka zooka bubble gum

She said go buy a pickle
But I didn't want no pickle
Instead I want some bubble gum
Bazooka zooka bubble gum
Bazooka zooka bubble gum
My mom gave me a dime
She said go buy a lime
But I didn't want no lime
Instead I want some bubble gum
Bazooka zooka bubble gum

She said go buy a waaatah
But I didn't want no waaatah
Instead I want some bubble gum
Bazooka zooka bubble gum

My mom gave me a doller
She said go buy a coller
But I didn't want no coller
Instead I want some bubble gum
Bazooka zooka bubble gum

My mom gave me a five
She said go stay alive
But I didn't stay alive
Instead I choked on bubble gum
Bazooka zooka bubble gum
Bazooka zooka bubble gum

Comet
It makes your teeth turn green

It makes you vomit
So buy some Comet
And vomit

Desperado (thanks to Chloe McCloskey)

(Chorus)
He was a big bald man, he was a [pause] desperado
From rippling creeks way down in Colorado
And he horsed around just like a big tor-nahdo
And everywhere he went he gave his Whoooo-Oooooo.

He was a desperado from the Wild Wild West
He wore a big sombrero and guns across his chest
[line unknown]
And everywhere he went he gave his Whoooo-Ooooo.
(Chorus)
He went to Coney Island just to see all of the sights
He saw the hoochie-coochies and the girls in purple tights
He got so darn excited that he shot up all the lights
And everywhere he went he gave his Whooo-Ooooo.
(Chorus)

Diarrhea pwwtthh pwwtthh diarrhea pwwtthh pwwtthh
When you're sitting on the bench and butt starts to twitch
Diarrhea pwwtthh pwwtthh diarrhea pwwtthh pwwtthh

Gopher Guts: Abbreviated Version (thanks to Seattle Gal)


Great green gobs of greasy grimy gopher guts,
Mutilated monkey meat, little birdies' pickled feet.
Great green gobs of vomit down the alley way.
Darn it - forgot my spoon.
But I got a straaaaaaawwwwww. (slurp)

Gopher Guts: Full Version (thanks to Supah C and the Trinity Day Camp)



Great green globs of greasy grimy gopher guts
Mutilated monkey meat
Ground up birdie feet
French fried eyeballs sitting in a bowl of blood
and I forgot my spoon
so they gave me
Scab sandwiches
Pus on top
Eagle eyeballs
and camel snot
but all these things just went to pot
so they gave me
Barf with sugar on top

Grandma's in the Cellar (thanks to Seattle Gal)

Grandma's in the cellar. Oh my can't you smell her.
She's cooking on her dirty filthy stove.
From her eyes there came a matter, and it fell into the batter,
And she whistled while it (snort sound) down her nose!
Down her nose, down her nose,
And she whistled while it (snort sound) down her nose!

No we're not,
No we're not.
When're gonna get there?
When're gonna get there?
Gotta go
Gotta go.

I Wish I Were (thanks to Lynn)


Oh I wish I were a fuzzy-wuzzy fox,
Oh I wish I were a fuzzy-wuzzy fox,
Oh I wish I were a fuzzy-wuzzy fox,
If I were a fuzzy-wuzzy fox,
I wouldn't have to wash my socks.
Oh I wish I were a fuzzy-wuzzy fox.

Oh I wish I were a little bar of soap,
Oh I wish I were a little bar of soap,
Oh I wish I were a little bar of soap,
I'd go slippedy-slippedy slidey
All across your little hidey.
Oh I wish I were a little bar of soap.

Oh I wish I were a little mosquito,
Oh I wish I were a little mosquito,
Oh I wish I were a little mosquito,
I'd go flippedy-flippedy flighty
Underneath your little nighty.
Oh I wish I were a little mosquito.

(To the tune of "John Brown's Body")

John Brown's baby has a cold upon its chest

And they rubbed it with camphorated oil.

Motions -- at "baby" rock your arms as if you were rocking a baby, at "cold" cover your mouth, and at "chest", tap your chest.
First verse, sing all the words, using the motions. Second verse, instead of saying "baby", just make the rocking motion. Third verse, rock for "baby", cover mouth and cough for "cold". Fourth verse, rock, cough and then tap chest at "chest".

And round, and round, and round it went.

Mary Had A Little Lamb (thanks to Sniquer)


Mary had a little lamb,
She fed it castor oil,
And everywhere that Mary went
It fertilized the soil.

Mary had a little lamb,
Her father shot it dead,
She still takes the lamb to school,
Between two bits of bread.

Mary had a little watch,
She swallowed it one day,
And so she took some castor oil,
To pass the time away.

Mary had a little lamb,
You've heard that tale before,
But have you heard she passed her plate,
And had a little more.

Mary had a little lamb,
It danced in skips and hops,
It danced into the road one day,
And ended up as chops.

Mary had a little lamb,
The doctor was surprised,
But when Old McDonald had a farm,
He couldn't believe his eyes.

Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory (thanks to Not R and Andy)

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the burning of the school
We have tortured every teacher, we have broken every rule,
We have shot the secretary, we have hung the principal
Our truth goes marching on.

Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Teacher hit me with a ruler.
I bopped her on the bean with a rotten tangerine
[or: I hid behind the door with a loaded .44]
And teacher taught no more.

Miss Lucy #2 (thanks to Penpal)

Miss Lucy had a baby. She named it Tiny Tim.
She put him in the bathtub to see if he could swim.
He drank up all the water. He ate up all the soap.
He tried to eat the bathtub, but it wouldn't go down his throat.

The nurse called the lady with the alligator purse.
The baby ate the doctor. The baby ate the nurse,
But he didn't eat the lady with the alligator purse, purse, purse.

Miss Susie had a steamboat, the steam boat had a bell,

A show is like a T.V. screen and this is all I know!

My Bonnie has tuberculosis
My Bonnie has only one lung
My Bonnie spits blood in her pocket
She dries it and chews it for gum.


Version #2

Last night as I lay on my pillow,
Last night as I lay on my bed,
My feet hung out of the window;
Next morning my neighbors were dead!

Bring back, bring back,
Bring back my neighbors to me, to me!
Bring back, bring back,
Oh, bring back my neighbors to me!

Nobody Loves Me (thanks to Juno and Rbarr)


Version #1
Nobody loves me, everybody hates me, I'm gonne go eat worms.
Big fat juicy ones, little tiny squirmy ones, I'm gonna go eat worms.
First you bite the heads off,
Then you squirt the guts out,
Then you throw the skins away.
Nobody knows that I eat worms three times every day.

Version #2


Nobody loves me, everybody hates me,
Sittin' in the garden eatin' worms.
First one went down easy,
Second one went down squeezy,
Third one stuck in my throat;
Fourth one choked me,
Fifth one poked me,
Sixth one got my goat!

On Top of Old Smokey (thanks to Sam I Am)

On top of Old Smokey
All covered with dirt
I shot my poor teacher
When somebody burped

I shot her with pleasure
I shot her with pride
I couldn't have missed her
She's forty foot wide

I went to her funeral
I went to her grave
When no one was looking
I threw a grenade

It blew up the village
It blew up the land
And all that was left was
da da da da da [the missing lyrics!!]

On Top of Old Smokey: Rather Alarming PG-13 Rated Version (thanks to KoPeRoL)

On top of old Smokey
All covered in blood,
I killed poor R. J.
With a 44 slug.
I went to his funeral, I peed on his grave
He wasn't quite dead yet so I threw a grenade.
The cops came after me to throw me in jail
But I took out my shotgun and blew them to HELL.

On Top of Spaghetti

On top of spaghetti, all covered with cheese,
I lost my poor meatball, when somebody sneezed
It rolled off the table, and onto the floor,
And then my poor meatball, rolled out of the door
It rolled through the garden and under a bush,
And then my poor meatball was nothing but mush
The mush was as tasty as tasty can be,
And early next summer it grew into a tree
The tree was all covered with beautiful moss
It grew great big meatballs and tomato sauce.
So if you eat spaghetti, all covered with cheese,
Hang onto your meatball, and don't ever sneeze AH-CHOO!

Peanut
Peanut sittin' on a railroad track, his heart was all aflutter.
Down the line came number nine. Toot! Toot! Peanut butter!

A Place in France
There's a place in France
Where the ladies do a dance
But the dance they do
Was invented by Magoo
But Magoo wouldn't dance
So they kicked him in the pants
But the pants he wore
Cost a dollar ninety four
But the tax was wrong
So they had to sing a song: (sung to the tune of My Country 'Tis Of Thee)
My country 'tis of thee
I went to Germany
To see the king
The king was Donald Duck
He drove a garbage truck
and Magoo-oo-oo ate it up
and so may you.

Popeye

I'm Popeye the sailor man,
I live in a garbage can,
I eat all the worms and spit out the germs,
I'm Popeye the sailor man.

Popeye #2 (thanks to Skyler)

I'm Popeye the sailor man
I live in a gabage can
I like to go swimmin'
With bow-legged women
I'm Popeye the sailor man

Randolph

(To the Tune of "Rudolph")
Randolph, the Rootin', Tootin' Cowboy,
Had a pair of very shiny guns
And if you ever saw them,
You would turn and run.

None of the other Cowboys
Ever let poor Randolph play.
When ever they saw him,
They would always turn and run.

Then one Foggy Saturday night,
The Sheriff came to say
"Randolph with your guns so bright,
Won't you shoot my wife tonight?"

Then all the other cowboys
Laughed and shouted out with glee,
Cause, Randolph, the Rootin' Tootin' Cowboy,
Is now in the Penitentiary!

Row Row Row

Row row row your boat
Gently down the stream
Throw your teacher in the sea
Listen to her scream.

Five days later, floating down the Delaware,
Chewing on her underwear
'Caint afford another pair

Eight days later, eaten by a grizzly bar'
That's how the grizzly bar' died...

The Song That Doesn't End


This is the song that doesn't end,
Oh it goes on and on my friends,
Some people started singing it
Not knowing what it was
Now they'll continue singing it forever
Just because This is the song that doesn't end, [etc.]

The Song That Ends

Oh it's the song that ends right now,
So people don't you have a cow,
Some people stopped singin' it,
Cause they knew what it was,
And they will stop singin' it forever just because...(goes on and on)



Stranded

(To the tune of the old TV show "Branded")

Stranded!
Stuck on the toilet bowl
What do you do when you're stranded
And you can't reach the roll?

Suffocation

(To the tune of 'Alouette')


[refrain]
Suffocation
We play suffocation
Suffocation
That's the game we play

First you take a plastic bag
Then you stick it over your head
Go to bed
Then you're dead...aaahaahhhaaahhaaahh

[refrain]

First you take a water hose
Then you stick it up your nose
Turn it on
Then you're gone....aahaaaahhaaahhaaahh

[refrain]

Ta Ra Ra Boom Dee Yay Version #1

Ta-ra-ra-boom-ti-ay!
There is no school today,
The teacher passed away,
She died of tooth decay.


We put her in the bay,
She scared the fish away,
And when we took her out,
She smelled like sauerkraut!

Ta Ra Ra Boom Dee Ay Version #2

When (s)he does the Irish Jig

Take Me Out to the Ballgame/The Graveyard/The Hospital

Take me out to the ballgame
Take me out to the park
Buy me some peanuts and crackerjack
I don't care if I ever get back
Cuz it's root, root, root for the home team
If they don't win it's a shame
For it's one, two, three strikes you're out
At the old ballgame

GRAVEYARD VARIATION
Take me out to the graveyard
Take me out to my grave
Fill me with blood and some iodine
I don't care if I meet Frankenstein
For it's root, root, root for the Wolfman
Cuz he don't love me no more
For it's one, two, three bites your dead
At the old graveyard

HOSPITAL VARIATION
Take me out to the hospital
Take me out to my room
Shoot me with needles and I don't care
Cuz I'm in love with Dr. Kildaire
For its root, root, root for the nurses
?????
For it's one, two, three shots you're dead
At the old hospital.
[Billie says: "I simply can't recall the 6th line. I'd love to see if anyone else
sang this verse and has a version they can recall.

Tardy

Better late than never
Better never late
You're late! You're late, and you're tardy!
T-A-R-D-Y! You ain't got no alibi!
You're tardy! Yeah, yeah, you're tardy!

Waking up at Seven
(To the tune of "I've Been Working On the Railroad")

I am waking up at seven
So I won't be late
I am waking up at seven
So I'll get to school by eight.

Don't you hear the 'larm clock ringing
Rise up and hurry on your way
Don't you hear your mother calling --
"You fool, it's Saturday."

Whistle While You Work


Whistle while you work
Hitler was a jerk
Mussolini bit his weenie
Now it doesn't work!

The Worms Crawl In Version #1

The worms crawl in the worms crawl out
In your stomach and out your mouth
They chew your gums, they spit 'em out
They turn them into sauerkraut.

The Worms Crawl In Version #2

Did you ever think when a hearse goes by
That you might be the next to die?
They wrap you up in a big white sheet,
And bury you under about six feet.

When you're OK in about a week
Your casket begins to spring a leak.
The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out,
The worms play pinochle on your snout.
Your liver turns a slimy green
And pus comes out like whipping cream,
And me without a spoon!

Ching Ching China
Went to Carolina,
Tried to make a dollar
Out of 15 cents.
She missed, she missed,
She missed like this. [Thanks to Raven W.]

Mailman, mailman do your duty.
Here comes a lady with an African booty.
She can do the pom-poms, she can do the splits, I bet you $5 she can't do this:

(Take your feet, and go back and forth, pointing your toes out, then your heels out, then toes, then heels....
As you're doing it, your feet are moving out, so you're getting closer to the ground.) [Thanks to Ciara A.]

In a cabin by the woods
(draw a square in the air with your fingers)
A little old man by the window stood
(make circles, like binoculars, with your hands and put up to your eyes)
Saw a rabbit hopping by
(two fingers in the air, like a V, moving your hand up and down)
Knocking at his door
(knocking motion with one fist)
"Help me! Help me! Help!" he cried
(fling hands in the air three times)
For the hunter shoot me down
(thumb up, index finger pointing like a gun with both hands and move up and down)
Little rabbit come inside
(move one hand in a circlular motion towards yourself as if you're beckoning someone to come to you)
Safely you may hide
(rock your arms like you're rocking a baby)

(The fun thing about his song is that you keep repeating it, but at each line, you just hum the tune and do the hand motions.
So the second time you sing it, you don't say "In a cabin by the woods", you just hum it and make the hand gesture.
The third time, you leave out both 1st and 2nd lines (humming only) do just the hand gesture, sing the rest.
You keep going until there are no words, just humming and gestures.)

[Thanks to Billie A.]

I know an old lady who lived in a shoe

One bright day in the middle of the night,
Two dead boys got up to fight.
Back to back they faced each other,
drew their swords and shot each other.

go ask the blind man, he saw it too. [Thanks to Chica and Patrick]

FIVE plum PEAS in a PEApod PRESSED.
ONE grew, TWO grew, SO did all the REST
And they GREW and they GREW and they NEver STOPPED
and they GREW so BIG that the PEApod POPPED!
Instructions: Start with your hands in fists, knuckles pressed together. On "one" you straighten your thumbs and touch the tips together; on "two" you do the same with your index fingers; continue with your middle fingers, ring fingers and pinkies on "so," "all," and "rest," respectively. Now you should have your hands palm to palm, with the finger tips touching. As you say "they grew and they grew" you start moving your hands apart, showing bigger and bigger . . . slow it down . . . stretch it out . . . by the time you get so "that the peapod" you should be reaching as wide as possible then on "POPPED" you clap your hands together. Very fast, of course, and loud. [Thanks to Juno.]

I am a little fresh pot
As cute as I can be be
And all the boys around my way
Would like to get with me me

He lives in Alibello
With a ring in his nose with twenty-five holes
And this is how the story goes
One day I was a walkin
My boyfriend was a talkin
To the ugliest girl in the wide world
And the shortest hair you ever seen
He said "I K-I-S-S kiss you
I M-I-S-S miss you
I W-A-N-T want you."
So I went to a lake and caught me a snake
And then I caught a tummy ache. [Thanks to Whitney B.]

Double double this this,
Double double that that,
Double this, double that,
Double double this that.

Imstructions: Hold your hands up, your fingers pointing to the ceiling, as if you're showing someone your new ring!
As you're saying the rhyme, turn your hands back and forth as certain words are said.
Whenever you say "double," both hands are facing out. (So your palms are facing you.)
Whenever you say "this," and "that," your palms are facing away from you. It sounds simple, but it's not!!
You can use almost any compound words, like:
Double double ice ice,
Double double cream cream.
Double ice, double cream,
Double double ice cream. [Thanks to Ciara A.]
