The Green Grass Grows All Around


There was a hole (there was a hole)
In the middle of the ground (in the middle of the ground)
The biggest hole (the biggest hole)
That you ever did see (that you ever did see)
Now the hole in the ground
And the green grass grows all around and around
And the green grass grows all around


And in that hole (and in that hole)
There was some soil (there was some soil)
The richest soil (the richest soil)
That you ever did see (that you ever did see)
Now the soil in the hole
And the hole in the ground
And the green grass grows all around and around
And the green grass grows all around


And in that soil (and in that soil)
There were some roots (there were some roots)
The deepest roots (the deepest roots)
That you ever did see (that you ever did see)
Now the roots in the soil
And the soil in the hole
And the hole in the ground
And the green grass grows all around and around
And the green grass grows all around


And on those roots (and on those roots)
There was a tree (there was a tree)
The tallest tree (the tallest tree)
That you ever did see (that you ever did see)
Now the tree on the roots
And the roots in the soil
And the soil in the hole
And the hole in the ground
And the green grass grows all around and around
And the green grass grows all around


And on that tree (and on that tree)
There grew a limb (there grew a limb)
The thickest limb (the thickest limb)
That you ever did see (that you ever did see)
Now the limb on the tree
And the tree on the roots
And the roots in the soil
And the soil in the hole
And the hole in the ground
And the green grass grows all around and around
And the green grass grows all around


And on that limb (and on that limb)
There was a nest (there was a nest)
The tiniest nest (the tiniest nest)
That you ever did see (that you ever did see)
Now the nest on the limb
And the limb on the tree
And the tree on the roots
And the roots in the soil
And the soil in the hole
And the hole in the ground
And the green grass grows all around and around
And the green grass grows all around


And in that nest (and in that nest)
There was an egg (there was an egg)
The shiniest egg (the shiniest egg)
That you ever did see (that you ever did see)
Now the egg in the nest
And the nest on the limb
And the limb on the tree
And the tree on the roots
And the roots in the soil
And the soil in the hole
And the hole in the ground
And the green grass grows all around and around
And the green grass grows all around


And in that egg (and in that egg)
There was bird (there was a bird)
The cutest bird (the cutest bird)
That you ever did see (that you ever did see)
Now the bird in the egg
And the egg in the nest
And the nest on the limb
And the limb on the tree
And the tree on the roots
And the roots in the soil
And the soil in the hole
And the hole in the ground
(Sigh)
And the green grass grows all around and around
And the green grass grows all around


Yes, the green grass grows all around and around
And the green grass grows all around
