Oro the Rattlin’ Bog

 

Refrain:   Oro the rattlin’ bog, the bog down in the valley-o

                Oro the rattlin’ bog, the bog down in the valley-o

 

Now in that bog there was a tree, a rare tree, and a rattlin’ tree.

The tree in the bog and the bog down in the valley-o

 

Now on this tree there was a limb, a rare limb and a rattlin’ limb.

The limb on the tree, the tree in the bog, and the bog down in the valley-o.

 

Now on this limb there was a branch, a rare branch and a rattlin’branch.

The branch on the limb, the limb on the tree, the tree in the bog, and the bog down in the valley-o.

 

Now on this branch there was a nest, a rare nest and a rattlin’ nest.

The nest on the branch, the branch on the limb, the limb on the tree, the tree in the bog,

and the bog down in the valley-o.

 

Now on in this nest there was an egg, a rare egg and a rattlin’ egg.

The egg in the nest, the nest on the branch, the branch on the limb, the limb on the tree,

the tree in the bog, and the bog down in the valley-o.

 

Now on this egg there was a bird, a rare bird and a rattlin’ bird.

The bird on the egg, the egg in the nest, the nest on the branch, the branch on the limb,

the limb on the tree, the tree in the bog, and the bog down in the valley-o.

 

One day a flood came through that bog, that rare bog and rattlin’ bog.

Down went the tree, down went the limb, down went the branch, down went the nest,

down went the egg, and the bird flew off in the valley-o.
