GROUNDHOG

The Ground-Hog Song
Audio: .mp3

Yonder comes Sal with a snicker and a grin, groundhog.
Yonder comes Sal with a snicker and a grin, groundhog.
Yonder comes Sal with a snicker and a grin,
Groundhog grease around her chin, groundhog.

Killed me a groundhog, tanned his hide, groundhog.
Killed me a groundhog, tanned his hide, groundhog.
Killed me a groundhog, tanned his hide,
Made the best shoestrings ever tied, groundhog.

Groundhog grease running down her chin, groundhog.
Groundhog grease running down her chin, groundhog.
Groundhog grease running down her chin,
She licked it off and swallowed it again, groundhog

GROUNDHOG SONG

Grab your pole and whistle up your dog.
Off to the woods for to catch a groundhog.
Oh, groundhog.

Run here Sally with a ten foot pole, (repeat)
To twist that whistle-pig out of his hole.
Oh, groundhog.

Here comes Sal with a snicker and a grin, (repeat)
Groundhog gravy all over her chin.
Oh, groundhog.

Look at them fellers, they’re a-goin’ wild, (repeat)
Eat that hog before he’s cooked or biled.
Oh, groundhog.

I dug down but I didn’t dig deep, (repeat)
There laid a whistle-pig fast asleep.
Oh, groundhog.

Well you eat the meat and save the hide, (repeat)
Make the best shoestring ever was tied.
Oh, groundhog.

Look at them fellers, they’re about to fall, (repeat)
Eat till their britches won’t button at all.
Oh, groundhog.

Little piece of cornbread a-layin’ on the shelf, (repeat)
If you want any more, you can sing it yerself.
Oh, groundhog.

Groundhog Day

by Lilian Moore

Groundhog sleeps
All winter
Snug in his fur,
Dreams
Green dreams of
Grassy shoots,
Of nicely newly nibbly
Roots-
Ah, he starts to
Stir.
With drowsy
Stare
Looks from his burrow
Out on fields of
Snow.
What’s there!
Oh no.
His shadow. Oh,
How sad!
Six more
Wintry
Weeks
To go.

Groundhog Day

by Sharon Siegelman

The groundhog is an animal
Whose home is underground.
On Groundhog Day he goes outside
To have a look around.

He does not have a calendar.
He does not have a clue.
But on February second
He just knows what to do.

A groundhog must be ready
To do his job each year.
Please tell me, Mr. Groundhog,
Do you think spring is near?
