GUEST,Barbara Lyr Req: old folks young folks everybody come (29) RE: Lyr Req: old folks young folks everybody come 16 Nov 12

My dad taught me a version when I was young.....but only 3 versus... I have been searching ever since for the rest. I'm not sure that these are the ones I'm looking for, but here are the 3 I know:

Adam was a young guy, Eve was his wife.
They lived in Eden for the greater part of life.
Eve ate and apple and Adam ate one too.
And when the good Lord found it out he told them what to do.


David was a young guy, a wiry little cuss.
Along came Goliath a kickin' up a fuss.
David heaved a brick at him and hit him in the dome.
And Goliath heard the birdies singing "Home Sweet Home".


Jonah was a mariner so runs the ancient tale.
Tried to cross the ocean in a transatlantic whale.
Whale felt sick and Jonah felt depressed.
So Jonah pushed the button and the whale did the rest.
