Lyrics

Old Jeremiah he jumped in the fire.
The fire was so hot he jumped in the pot;
The pot was so little he jumped in the kettle;
The kettle was so black he jumped in the crack;
The crack was so high he jumped in the sky;
The sky was so blue he jumped in the canoe;
The canoe was so long he jumped in the pond;
The pond was so deep he jumped in the creek;
The creek was so shallow he jumped in the tallow;
The tallow was so hard he jumped in the lard;
The lard was so soft he jumped in the loft;
The loft was so rotten he jumped in the cotton;
The cotton was so white he stayed there all night.
