I Had a Little Sailboat

Lyrics

(French folk song, Lyrics by John Erwin, publ. 1921)

I had a little sailboat,
Her decks were new and all painted blue
I had a little sailboat,
And sailed it on the brook,
Tra la! And sailed it on the brook.

An ugly frog sat staring,
An ugly frog that was on a log,
An ugly frog sat staring,
And leaped upon her deck.
Tra la! And leaped upon her deck.

My ship went topsy-turvy,
Her sails so white disappeared from sight,
My ship went topsy-turvy,
Beneath the water clear,
Tra la! Beneath the water clear.
