Lyrics to the riddle song


The Riddle song

I gave my love a cherry

That had no stone

I gave my love a chicken

That had no bone

I told my love a story

That had no end

I gave my love a baby

With no cryin'

How can there be a cherry

That has no stone?

And how can there be a chicken

That has no bone?

And how can there be a story

That has no end?

And how can there be a baby

With no cryin'?

A cherry when it's bloomin'

It has no stone

A chicken when it's pippin'

It has no bone

The story of I love you

It has no end

A baby when it's sleeping

It's not cryin'

I gave my love a cherry

That had no stone

I gave my love a chicken

That had no bone


I told my love a story

That had no end

I gave my love a baby

With no cryin'


Spaghetti song image

Lyrics to the spaghetti song

"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 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 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

Hold on to to your meatballs

And don't ever sneeze."

Crazy Moose Song


There was a crazy moose (there was a

crazy moose)

Who liked to drink a lot of juice (who

liked to drink a lot of juice)

There was a crazy moose (there was a

crazy moose)

Who liked to drink a lot of juice (who

liked to drink a lot of juice)

Chorus

Singing way-oh, way oh (singing way-oh,

way-oh)

Way-up, way-up, way-up way-up (way-up,

way-up, way-up, way-up)

Way oh, way oh (way oh, way oh)

Way-up, way-up, way-up, way-up (way-

up, way-up, way-up way-up)

The moose's name was Fred.

He liked to drink his juice in bed.

He drank his juice with care,

But he spilled some in his hair.

Now he's a sticky moose.

A moose covered in juice.

All his hair went stiff.

So he combed it in a quiff.

His friends began to laugh.

So he had to take a bath.

As the water went down,

Fred the moose began to drown.

Singing glug-glug-glug-glug

Now let's all count to five.

Fred the moose is back alive

sailor at sea

Was the bottom of the deep blue sea,

sea, sea.

Ain't it great to be crazy

Giddy and Foolish all day long

Boom Boom, ain't it great to be Crazy!

Way down south where bananas grow

A flea stepped on a elephant's toe

The elephant cried with tears in his eyes

"Why don't you pick on someone your own

size?"

Way up north were there's ice and snow

There was a penguin and his name was

Joe

He got tired of black and white

So he wore pink slacks to the dance last

night!

A horse and a flea and three blind mice

Sat on the curbstone shooting dice

The horse, he slipped and fell on the flea

Woops! said the flea, there's a horse on

me!

I bought a suit of combination underwear

Guaranteed not to rip or tear

I wore them six months and to my

consternation

I couldn't get the darned thing off, I'd lost the

combination!

I love myself. I think I'm grand.

When I go to movies, I hold my hand.

I put my arm around my waist,

And when I get fresh, I slap my face.

I call myself on the telephone

Just to hear my musical tone.

I ask myself for a heavy date,

And I pick myself up at half past eight.

Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear,

And Fuzzy Wuzzy cut his hair.

So, Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn't fuzzy.

No, by Jove, he wasn't, was he?

I take a swim in my swimming pool.

I jump from the board 'cause that's the rule.

I hit my head on cement and mortar.

Forgot to look - there was no water.

That one-eared cat who used to sit

Watching Grandma rock and knit

Swallowed a ball of bright red yarn,

And out came kittens with red sweaters on.

I had a dog and he had fleas.

He had fleas all over his knees.

And every time his tail went flop,

The fleas on the bottom all jumped to the

top!

Eli, Eli, he sells socks.

A dollar a pair and a nickel a box.

The longer you wear 'em, the stronger they

get,

You put 'em in the water and they don't get

wet!

noah's ark with many different animals

The animals went in two by two


The animals went in two by two. Hurrah,

Hurrah.

The animals went in two by two. Hurrah,

Hurrah.

The animals went in two by two.

The elephant and the Kangaroo

And they all went into the ark,

For to get out of the rain.

Three by three - The wasp, the ant and

the bumble bee.

Four by four, The hippopotamus got

stuck in the door

Five by five, by eating each other they

kept alive

Six by Six, they turned out the monkey

because of his tricks

Seven by Seven the little pig thought he

was going to heaven

Eight by eight -


grey and purple cartoon flies smiling

There ain’t no flies on us




There might be flies on some of you guys

But there ain’t no flies on us

My parents took me camping, they said it

would be fun

But the skeeters and the blackflies they

kept me on the run

A horsefly bit my shoulder a deerfly bit my

knee

I jumped into the water but they’re still after

me

There’s bug bites on my ankles and all

around my ears

The itchin’ and a-scratchin’ are bringing me

to tears

I am slowly going crazy swatting bugs

away

Did you ever see a fly in a polka dot tie

down by the bay

Down by the bay, where the watermelons

grow

Back to my home -- I dare not go

For if I do... my mother will say:

Did you ever see a bug playing the jug?

Down by the bay…

Did you ever see a flea with a banjo on his

knee?

Down by the bay

Some people use repellent while others

burn coils

You can plant some citronella or try

essential oils

But if the flies are bugging and you just

can’t get no rest

The best advice that I can give is pack up,

and move West!
