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.
