1. Oh have you heard geography sung?
For if you’ve not, it’s on my tongue.
About the earth in air that’s hung,
All covered with green little islands.
Oceans, gulfs and bays and seas,
Channels and straights, sounds, if you please.
Guest archipelagoes, too, and all these
Are covered with green little islands.
2. All o’er the earth are water and land,
Beneath the ships or where we stand
And far beyond the ocean strand
Are thousands of green little islands. Refrain
