Lyrics for:
Rattling Bog, The

Sheet Music (and more information about this song)

Chorus:
Oh, ro, the rattlin' bog, the bog down in the valley-o.
A rare bog, a rattlin' bog, the bog down in the valley-o.

And in that bog there was a hole, a rare hole, a rattlin' hole
The hole in the bog, and the the bog down in the valley-o.

Chorus

And in that hole there was a tree, a rare tree, a rattlin' tree
The tree in the hole
and the hole in the bog, and the the bog down in the valley-o.

Chorus

And on that tree there was a limb [etc]

And on that limb there was a branch [etc]

And on that branch there was a twig [etc]

And on that twig there was a nest [etc]

And in that nest there was an egg [etc]

And on that egg there was a bird [etc]

And on that bird there was a feather [etc]

And on that feather there was a spot [etc]

And on that spot there was a flea [etc]

And on that flea there was a hair [etc]

And on that hair there was a germ, a rare germ a rattlin' germ,
The germ on the hair, and the hair on the flea,
and the flea on the spot, and the spot 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 on the tree, and the tree in the hole,
and the hole in the bog, and the the bog down in the valley-o.

Chorus
