Old Joe Clark

Album: Back With Jack

Lyrics

v1) I wished I had a nickel, wished I had a dime Wished I had a pretty little girl - kiss her all the time

CH: Round and around, Old Joe Clark Round and around I say Round and around, Old Joe Clark I’m a’goin’ away

v2) I went down to Old Joe’s house He invited me for supper I stubbed my toe on the table leg And shoved my nose in the butter

CHORUS

v3) Old Joe had a big old house Sixteen stories high And every floor in that whole house Was stuffed with chicken pie

CHORUS

v4) I’d never marry an old school teacher Tell you the reason why She blows her nose in old cornbread And calls it pumpkin pie

CHORUS (x2)
