Youtube address: Io9MPyXE2K0

Tune: My Bonnie


My bonnie lies over the ocean
My bonnie lies over the sea
My bonnie lies over the ocean
Oh, bring back my bonnie to me
Bring back, bring back,
Bring back my bonnie to me, to me
Bring back, bring back,
Bring back my bonnie to me

Actions: Start the song sitting down. On the first
B in the song, stand up. At the next B, sit down
again. Repeat throughout the song. Repeat the song a number of times, getting
faster and faster!

Thanks to Neil and Lucia Savage for these extra silly
verses!

My Bonnie's complexion was makeup

Her face, it was beauteous to see

Until she got caught in a rainstorm

Oh, bring back my Bonnie to me!

My Bonnie leaned over the gas tank

The height of its contents to see

I lighted a match to assist her

Oh, bring back my Bonnie to me!

My Bonnie has tuberculosis

My Bonnie has only one lung

My Bonnie can cough up raw oysters

And roll them around on her tongue!

My mother's an apple pie maker

My father he fiddles for tin

My sister scrubs floors for a living

Oh boy, how the money rolls in.

Last night as I lay on my pillow

Last night as I lay on my bed

I stuck my feet out the window

Next morning my neighbors were dead!
