We’re Going Round the Mountain


(American folk song)

1. We’re going round the mountain, two by two, (repeat twice)
So rise, Sally rise.

2. Let me make you a motion, two by two…

3. That’s a mighty poor motion, two by two…

4. Let me see you make another one, two by two…

5. That’s a very fine motion, two by two…
