Barn Dance     Back to Top

One night when I was sleeping, something awakened me.
There was a light on in the barn, so I went down to see.
I peeked through a little crack in the door, and what do you think I saw.
The animals were doin’ a barn dance, right in the horse’s stall.
 
And there were chickens doin’ the chicken dance, and the muskrat ran along.
The old cow did the cow-cow boogie, and the rooster crowed a song.
A mouse came out of his hidin’ place, and he danced on one leg.
The old hen got so tickled, that she almost laid an egg.
 
They were all dressed up for the barn dance, it made me want to laugh.
The rabbit wore a big bow tie, and the pig was a looking in the looking glass.
The goose danced with the gander, till an old dog buddied in.
The horse was horsin’ around a lot, ‘till the mare got mad at him.
 
And there were chickens doin’ the chicken dance, and the muskrat ran along.
The old cow did the cow-cow boogie, and the rooster crowed a song.
A mouse came out of his hidin’ place, and he danced on one leg.
The old hen got so tickled, that she almost laid an egg.

 
 
 

 
 
 
BEAR to the Left     Back to Top

Traveling, traveling, traveling on
I bumped into my friend John
I said, “Hey John, which way should I go?”
He said, “Follow the animals, they all know
You gotta BEAR to the left….”
 
But something was lacking, so I went back, and he said, “Oh yeah, I forgot:
You gotta BEAR to the left and SNAKE to the right…”
 
But something was lacking, so I went back, and he said, “Oh yeah, I forgot:
You gotta BEAR to the left and SNAKE to the right
WEASEL on down and DUCK outta sight…”
 
But something was lacking, so I went back, and he said, “Oh yeah, I forgot:
You gotta BEAR to the left and SNAKE to the right
WEASEL on down and DUCK outta sight
HORSE around, FLOUNDER about…”
 
But something was lacking, so I went back, and he said, “Oh yeah, I forgot:
You gotta BEAR to the left and SNAKE to the right
WEASEL on down and DUCK outta sight
HORSE around, FLOUNDER about
WORM your way in and BUG out!”
 
I STEERED myself home, and I YAKKED on the phone
I WOLFED down my dinner, and I said so long!

Nothing to do, nothing to say.
That’s the time to pack your bags and go away.

Little Pile of Tin     Back to Top

I have a little old pile of tin
nobody knows what shape it’s in
It’s got four wheels and a runnin’ board
It’s a four door it’s a Ford
 
honk honk rattle rattle rattle crash beep beep
honk honk rattle rattle rattle crash beep beep
honk honk rattle rattle rattle crash beep beep
honk honk honk honk honk honk beep beep!
 
It’s a four door it’s a wonder
It will give you shakes and thrills
It will take you down the valley
If you push it up the hill it
 
(Chorus)
 
Romeo and Juliet
On the balcony they sat
Scram she said, I’ve got a date
Shakespeare’s coming in his Ford v8
 
(Chorus)
