Chorus:
Ho, ro, the rattlin' bog
The bog down in the valley-o
Ho, ro, the rattlin' bog
The bog down in the valley-o
And in that bog there was a tree
A rare tree and a rattlin' tree
And the tree in the bog
And the bog down in the valley-o
Chorus
And on that tree there was a limb
A rare limb and a rattlin' limb
And the limb on the tree
And the tree in the bog
And the bog down in the valley-o
Chorus
Now on that limb there was a branch
A rare branch and a rattlin' branch
And the branch on the limb
And the limb on the tree
And the tree in the bog
And the bog down in the valley-o
Chorus
Now on that branch there was a twig
A rare twig and a rattlin' twig
And the twig on the branch
And the branch on the limb
And the limb on the tree
And the tree in the bog
And the bog down in the valley-o
Chorus
Now on that twig there was a nest
A rare nest and a rattlin' nest
And the nest on the twig
And the twig on the branch
And the branch on the limb
And the limb on the tree
And the tree in the bog
And the bog down in the valley-o
Chorus
Now in that nest there was an egg
A rare egg and a rattlin' egg
And the egg in the nest
And the nest on the twig
And the twig on the branch
And the branch on the limb
And the limb on the tree
And the tree in the bog
And the bog down in the valley-o
Chorus
Now in that egg there was a bird
A rare bird and a rattlin' bird
And the bird on the egg
And the egg in the nest
And the nest on the twig
And the twig on the branch
And the branch on the limb
And the limb on the tree
And the tree in the bog
And the bog down in the valley-o
Chorus
Now on that bird there was a feather
A rare feather and a rattlin' feather
And the feather on the bird
And the bird on the egg
And the egg in the nest
And the nest on the twig
And the twig on the branch
And the branch on the limb
And the limb on the tree
And the tree in the bog
And the bog down in the valley-o
Chorus
Now on that feather there was a flea
A rare flea and a rattlin' flea
And the flea on the feather
And the feather on the bird
And the bird on the egg
And the egg in the nest
And the nest on the twig
And the twig on the branch
And the branch on the limb
And the limb in the tree
And the tree in the bog
And the bog down in the valley-o
Chorus x6

    And old irish folk-song that irish men used to dance and sing to in bars until eventually it got so fast they fell over from either anger or drunkenness or both!
