Jump Down

1. Jump down, turn around pick a bale of cotton,
Jump down, turn around pick a bale a day,
Jump down, turn around pick a bale of cotton,
Jump down, turn around pick a bale a day,

CH: Oh Lordy, pick a bale of cotton,
Oh Lordy, pick a bale a day,
Oh Lordy, pick a bale of cotton,
Oh Lordy, pick a bale a day,

2. Me and my wife gonna pick a bale of cotton,
Me and my wife gonna pick a bale of day. ...

Pick-a, Pick-a, Pick-a, Pick-a, Pick-a bale of cotton. ...

Junior Birdmen

Up in the air junior birdmen,
Up in the air upside down.
Up in the air junior birdmen,
with your noses to the ground.
And when you hear that doorbell ringing, Ding Ding,
And you see that badge of Tin (Clink, Clink).
Then you will know junior birdmen,
Itís time to send those boxtops in.
B-I-R-D-M-E-N
Birdmen! Birdmen! EEEEEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRR!


Johnnie Verbeck

1. There was a little Dutchman, his name was Johnnie Verbeck.
He was a dealer in sausages, and sauerkraut, and spec.
He had the finest sausages that ever you did see.
But one day he invented, a wonderful sausage machine.

CH: Oh, Johnnie Verbeck, Oh, Johnnie Verbeck, how could you be so mean?
I told you you'd be sorry for inventing that machine.
All the neighbors cats and dogs will never more be seen;
For they'll all be ground to sausages in Johnnie Verbeck's machine.

2. One day a little fat boy, came walking in the store.
He bought a pound of sausages and piled them on the floor.
The boy began to whistle, he whistled up a tune.
And all the little sausages went dancing 'round the room

3. One day the machine got busted, and the darn thing wouldn't go.
So Johnnie Verbeck, he climbed inside, to see what made it so.
His wife, she had a nightmare, and waking in her sleep,
She gave the crank an awful yank and Johnnie Verbeck was meat.
