The Clear Cool Pond

Lyrics

(French folk song, Lyrics – English adaptation – George Gould, 1903)

Down by the old farmhouse,
Hurry, hurry, little ducklings!
Down by the old farmhouse
There’s a clear cool pond.
Clear cool, bright pool,
Clear cool, bright pool,
There’s a clean cool pond.

There swim little fishes,
Hurry, hurry, little ducklings!
Just to suit your wishes
In the clear cool pond.
Clear cool, bright pool,
Clear cool, bright pool,
In the clean cool pond.

Quick now through the sedges
Hurry, hurry, little ducklings!
Growing round the edges
Of the clear cool pond.
Clear cool, bright pool,
Clear cool, bright pool,
Of the clean cool pond.
