When Papa Put the Paper on the Wall

Lyrics

(Folk song)

When Papa* put the paper on the wall
He spilled the pot of paste in the hall
He papered all the stairs, he papered all the chairs
He even put a border on grandma’s shawl!

When Papa put the paper on the wall,
He spilled the pot of paste on us all
(spoken) And now we’re stuck together like birds of a feather
When Papa put the paper on the wall!

*Some versions have “Sammy”
