The Quick 10: Little-Known Second Verses of Children’s Songs
Either I had a really short attention span as a kid and never made it past the first verse of a song (which is entirely possible), or there are some obscure lyrics to the songs we all know and love. Here are a few examples. 1. I’m a Little Teapot. “I’m a clever teapot, Yes it’s true Here let me show you What I can do I can change my handle And my spout Just tip me over and pour me out!” 2. Do your ears hang high? 3. Last night as I lay on my pillow Last night as I lay on my bed Last night as I lay on my pillow I dreamed that my Bonnie was dead 4. In a cavern, in a canyon, Excavating for a mine Dwelt a miner forty niner, And his daughter Clementine Light she was and like a fairy, And her shoes were number nine, Wearing boxes, without topses, Sandals were for Clementine. 5. The next verses include telling the captive bird that after his head, his beak, neck, back, wings, feet and tail will follow. 6. Thys Franklyn, syrs, he brewed goode ayle, And he called it Rare good Styngo! 7. 8. 9. 10.
