GREEN GREEN ROCKY ROAD
(Len Chandler and Robert Kaufman)

When I go by Baltimore,
Ain't no carpet on the floor.
Come along and follow me.
Must go down to Galilee
singin' Green, green rocky road
Promenade in' green
Tell me who ya love,
Tell me who ya love.

Hooka, tooka , soda cracker,
Does your mamna chew tobacker?
If your mama chew tobacker,
Hooka, tooka soda cracker.
singin' Green, green rocky road
Promenade in' green
Tell me who ya love,
Tell me who ya love.

If you seem me comin' fast,
Sweep the yard and cut the grass;
Girls who kiss are bound to fall,
Boys who kiss will soon tell all.
Singin' Green, green rocky road
Promenade in green
Tell me who ya love,
Tell me who ya love.
Ya better tell me honey
Tell me who ya love
Ya better tell be baby
Tell me who ya love
Oh can't ya tell me who ya love,
Ya better tell me who ya love.
