Oh, once I had a little dog, his color it was brown.
I taught him for to whistle, to sing and dance and run.
His legs they were fourteen yards long, his ears so very wide;
Around the world in half-a-day, upon him I could ride.

(chorus): Sing tarry-o-day, sing, Autumn to May.

Oh, once I had a little frog, he wore a vest of red.
He leaned upon a silver cane, a top hat on his head.
He'd speak of far off places, of things to see and do;
And all the kings and queens he'd met while sailing in a shoe. (*)

Oh, once a had a flock of sheep, they grazed upon a feather.
I'd keep them in a music box from wind and rainy weather.
And ev'ry day the sun would shine they'd fly all through the town,
To bring me back some golden rings and candy by the pound. (chorus)

Oh, once I had a downy swan, she was so very frail.
She sat upon an oyster shell and hatched me out a snail.
The snail it changed into a bird, the bird to butter - fly,
And he who tells a bigger tale would have to tell a lie. (chorus)
