Thanks Kerry for the songs. I have many a song book but there are a few
here I don't recall ever singing. In set 4, one submitter of a song said he
wish he had the words to a song about "go get the axe, there's a hair on
baby's chin". Set 4 does show the song but much of it is missing. I liked
the song so much as a kid I want you to have the complete version as I know
The Horses Run Around
The horses run around,
Their feet are on the ground,
Oh, who will wind the clock while I'm away, away?
Go get the axe, there's a hair on baby's chin
And a boy's best friend is his mother, his mother.
A-looking through a knothole
In father's wooden leg
Why did they build the shore so near the ocean, the ocean?
We feed the baby garlic, so we'll find him in the dark,
Oh, who cut the sleeves off father's vest, his vest.
Looking out a window, a second story window,
I slipped and sprained my eyebrow on the pavement, the pavement.
Go get the Listerine, sister wants a beau,
And we hope grandma's teeth will soon fit Jennie, fit Jennie.
She spanked him with a shingle,
And made his panties tingle
Because he socked his little baby brither, his brother.
A snake's belt slips, because he has no hips
And his waistline is just below his necktie, his necktie.
Gosh, they just don't write songs like that anymore. I wonder why? <G>
