THE GREEN GRASS GREW ALL AROUND
(traditional)

There was a hole (there was a hole)
in the middle of the ground (in the middle of the ground)
The prettiest hole (the prettiest hole)
that you ever did see (that you ever did see).
Well, the hole in the ground
And the green grass grew all around and around
And the green grass grew all around.

And in this hole there was a root...

And on this root there was tree...

And on this tree there was a branch...

And on this branch there was twig...

And on this twig there was a nest...

And in this nest there was an egg...

And in this egg there was a bird...

And on this bird there was a wing...

And on this wing, there was a feather...
The prettiest feather that you ever did see
Well the feather on the wing
And the wing on the bird
And the bird on the egg
And the egg in the nest
And the nest on the twig
And the twig on the branch
And the branch on the tree
And the tree on the root
And the root in the hole
And the hole in the ground
And the green grass grew all around and around
And the green grass grew all around.
