Down By the Bay

Down by the bay (everyone repeats)
Where the watermelons grow (everyone repeats)

Back to my home (everyone repeats),
I dare not go (everyone repeats)

For if I do (everyone repeats),
My mother will say (everyone repeats)
Did you ever see a goose kissing a moose
Down by the bay?

Down by the bay (everyone repeats),
Where the watermelons grow (everyone repeats)

Back to my home (everyone repeats),
I dare not go (everyone repeats)

For if I do (everyone repeats),
My mother will say (everyone repeats)

Did you ever see a fly, wearing a tie
Down by the bay?

…Did you ever see a bear, combing his hair
Down by the bay?

…Did you ever see llamas eating their pajamas
Down by the bay?

…Did you ever see an octopus dancing with a platypus
Down by the bay?

…Did you ever have a time when you couldn’t make a rhyme
Down by the bay?

and so on, and so on…
