Dan Doo

 

Lyrics

There was a good old man lived out west,
Dan Doo, Dan Doo,
There was a good old man lived out west,
Tom Klingklass McKlingle.
He had an old wife that was none of your best,
And it’s harum, barum, compario,
Hicky-u-ka-tack klemingo,
Tom Klingklass McKlingle.

This good old man came in from his plow,
Dan Doo, Dan Doo,
This good old man came in from his plow,
Tom Klingklass McKlingle.
Said he, “Old wife, is breakfast ready now?”
It’s harum, barum, compario.
Hicky-u-ka-tack klemingo,
Tom Klingklass McKlingle.

“There’s some dry bread and meat in on the shelf”…
“There’s some dry bread and meat in on the shelf”…
“If you want more than that, you can git it yourself.”…

This good old man went down to the sheep-fold…
This good old man went down to the sheep-fold…
He caught a sheep and did him hold…

He hung this sheep on a hickory pin…
He hung this sheep on a hickory pin…
And away he jerked him out of his skin…

He put this sheepskin on his old wife’s back…
He put this sheepskin on his old wife’s back…
The two little sticks, they went whickity whack…

“I’ll go tell my father and mother and all my kin”…
“I’ll go tell my father and mother and all my kin”…
“You’ve whaled me once, and you won’t do it again”…

“You can go and tell your father and mother and all your kin”…
“You can go and tell your father and mother and all your kin”…
“But I’ve whaled you once and I’ll do it again”…

This good old man travelled fourteen miles in fifteen days…
This good old man travelled fourteen miles in fifteen days…
And if you don’t cut a lap getting out of the way fast…
