And the Children Rolled

lyrics

And the crooked man walked from his house
ba da ding ba da ding ba da ding ba da ding
And he went down to the grocery store
a ha a ha a ha
And the lady who was straight as a pin
Went down to the store cause she had to get to some food
The lady who was straight as a pin
Was hungry all the time

And they met there at the grocery store
a ha mm-hm a ha mm-hm
And they got married at half past four
a hmm click click a hmm

And their children rolled around the floor
They were round like a ball, they were round like a ball
The kids rolled around the floor
They were round like a ball mm-hm
They were round like pumpkins, round like tomatoes, round like the earth or an apple or an orange

The children rolled around the floor
The crooked man said ha ha ha
The lady straight said tee he he
And the children rolled right out the door.....

And they fell in love with an ice cream truck
yum yum a ha yum yum a ha
And they rolled around from town to town
yum yum a ha yum yum
And they grew fatter and rounder still
uh huh mm-hm uh huh mm-hm
Til they lost their truck at the top of a hill
uh huh-mm-hm uh-huh

And they tumbled tumbled tumbled tumbled
Down down down
The the the the
mountainside
They were on a roll like a jill or a jack
They heard the sobs that their mother cried
And they knew that she wanted them back

Then the door flew open and they rolled in
uh-huh, ho ho, watch out, uh huh
And knocked her over like a bowling pin
oh ho oh ho

And the children rolled around the floor
The crooked man said ha ha ha
The lady straight said tee he he
And they all were happy evermore....

Til they heard the sound of an ice cream truck
Ding a lang, lang a ding, ding a ling a lang a ding
And the crooked man skipped right outside
The lady straight was by his side
The children rolled out big and wide
Yum yum, roll roll, ha ha tee hee ding-a-ling yum yum bye bye
