7. POLLY WOLLY DOODLE
Polly Wolly Doodle Polly Wolly DoodlePolly Wolly Doodle Polly Wolly Doodle
Oh, I went down southto see my Sal,
Sing Polly Wolly Doodle all the day.
My Sally she am aspunky gal, Sing Polly Wolly Doodle all the day.
CHORUS:Fare thee well, Fare thee well,
Fare thee well, my fairy fay,
For I'm off to Lousiana, For to see my Susyanna,
Sing Polly Wolly Doodle all the day.
Oh, my Sal, she is a maiden fair,Sing Polly Wolly Doodle all the day.
With curly eyesand laughing hair, Sing Polly Wolly Doodle all the day.
CHORUS:
Oh I like water mellon and I have for years
Sing Polly Wolly Doodle all the day.
I eat water mellon cause it gets on my ears
Sing Polly Wolly Doodle all the day.
CHORUS:
Oh a grass hopper sitting on a rail road track
Sing Polly Wolly Doodle all the day.
A pickin his teeth with a carpet tax
Sing Polly Wolly Doodle all the day.
CHORUS:
Behind the Barn downon my knees
Sing Polly Wolly Doodle all the day.
I thought I heardthe chicken sneeze
Sing Polly Wolly Doodle all the day.
Oh he sneezed so hard had Whooping cough
Sing Polly Wolly Doodle all the day.
He sneeze his headand his tail rightoff
Sing Polly Wolly Doodle all the day.
CHORUS:
Sing Polly Wolly Doodle all the day.
