LYRIC

Springfield Mountain

On Springfield Mountain there did dwell
Right-tim-a-new-rack lama diddle doo
Springfield Mountain there did dwell
Tim-a-row
On Springfield Mountain there did dwell
A merry youth, I knew him well
Right-tim-a-new-rack lama diddle doo

On Monday mornin’ he did go
Right-tim-a-new-rack lama diddle doo
Monday mornin’ he did go
Tim-a-row
On Monday mornin’ he did go
Down in the meadow for to mow
Right-tim-a-new-rack lama diddle doo

He mowed once round that lengthy field
Right-tim-a-new-rack lama diddle doo
Mowed once round that lengthy field
Tim-a-row
He mowed once round that lengthy field
When a poison serpent bit his heel
Right-tim-a-new-rack lama diddle doo

They carried him home to his Sally dear
Right-tim-a-new-rack lama diddle doo
Carried him home to his Sally dear
Tim-a-row
Carried him home to his Sally dear
Which made her feel so mighty queer
Right-tim-a-new-rack lama diddle doo

Johnny dear, why did you go
Right-tim-a-new-rack lama diddle doo
Warnin’ take each lad and lass
Tim-a-row
A warnin’ take each lad and lass
Don’t get in trouble in the long, tall grass
Right-tim-a-new-rack lama diddle doo

Sally dear, now don’t you know
Right-tim-a-new-rack lama diddle doo
Sally dear, now don’t you know
Tim-a-row
Sally dear, now don’t you know
‘Twas Father’s thought it must be mowed
Right-tim-a-new-rack lama diddle doo

A warnin’ take each lad and lass
Right-tim-a-new-rack lama diddle doo
Warnin’ take each lad and lass
Tim-a-row
A warnin’ take each lad and lass
Don’t get in trouble in the long, tall grass
Right-tim-a-new-rack lama diddle doo
