Lyrics

(Folk song)

She had a funny name, but she wasn’t much to blame;
Her mother gave it to her just the same, same, same.

Refrain
Catalina Magdalena Hoopensteiner Wallendiner
Hogan Logan Bogan was her name.

Well, she had two peculiar hairs on her head;
One was black and one was red. Refrain

She had two eyes that were quite a sight;
One looked left and the other looked right. Refrain

She had two arms that flopped all around;
When she walked, they would drag on the ground. Refrain

She had two feet that were wide and flat –
Each one bigger than a bathroom mat. Refrain

She had two holes in the bottom of her nose –
One for her fingers ….and one for her toes. Refrain

She had two teeth inside her mouth;
One went north and the other south. Refrain

Some folks say her breath smells sweet;
But me, I’d rather smell her feet. Refrain

If rain makes flowers sweet and clean,
There oughta be a downpour on Magdaleen! Refrain

  1. This was my Girl Scout troop’s favorite song! We had a different last verse though:
    “She worked for a doctor to make money quick–
    She stood in the corner and made people sick!”
