Jack Can I Ride

Lyrics

(Folk song)

Jack can I ride?
Ho ho, Jack can I ride?
Ho ho, Jack can I ride?
Ho ho, Jack can I ride?
Ho ho

1. Asked my mama for fifteen cents
To see the elephant jump the fence,
Jumped so high till he hit the sky,
He couldn’t get back ’til next July. Refrain

2. Asked my mama for five cents more
To see the elephant climb the door
He jumped so low, he stumped his toe,
And that was the end of the elephant show. Refrain

3. Jaybird sitting on a swinging limb.
Winked at me and I winked at him,
Picked up a stick and I hit him on the shin,
“Good Lawdamighty, don’t do that again!” Refrain
