"Mutiny in the Nursery" as written by and Johnny Mercer....
There's mutiny in the nursery
There's mutiny in the nursery
Mother Goose is on the loose
Her kids are swingin' out

There's mutiny in the nursery
And music in the nursery
Mother Goose is on the loose
You ought to hear them shout

If you could see miss Jenny Jones, Jenny Jones, Jenny Jones
If you could see miss Jenny Jones you'd find her swinging lightly
And lately Mary won't get up, she won't get up, she won't get up
She stays out too late nightly

Oats, peas, beans and barley grow
Oats, peas, beans and barley grow
You and I and everyone knows how
Oats, peas, beans and barley grow

Oats, peas, beans and barley grow
How they do it, I don't know
But if you hand me my horn
I promise I won't blow no corn

Little Bo Peep has lost her sheep but she knows just where to find them
For they all stand around the bend waggin' their tails behind them

One little, two little, three little jitterbugs
Four little, five little, six little jitterbugs
Seven little, eight little, nine little jitterbugs
Ten little jitterbug boys
Ten, nine, eight little jitterbugs
Seven, six, five little jitterbugs
Four, three, two little jitterbugs
One little jitterbug girl

Mutiny, mutiny, must have mutiny
Mutiny, mutiny, must have mutiny
Swing out, kids, swing out

There was mutiny in the nursery when they all got loose
They began to yell for old Mother Goose

Get on down, all together
Get on down, take a gander
Get on down, struck on home
Don't miss the jamboree

Mutiny, mutiny, must have mutiny
In the nursery!
