John Brown’s baby had a cold upon his chest, (repeat three times)
And they rubbed it with camphorated oil.
Repeat the same lyrics, but remove a word each time you sing another verse, and replace it with its corresponding motion.
John Brown = salute (I skip this one with younger students)
baby = motion of rocking baby in arms
cold = pretend to cough
chest = pat chest
rubbed = rub chest
camphorated oil = hold nose and make sour face
