Battle Hymn of the Republic

Cannot remember who taught me these verses, but I passed them on to my kids, my Girl Scout Troop and car pool kids.  Just wondered if anyone else was subjected to such whimsy♫♪

Participating in Alphabe-Thursday letter B.  Check out the other participants!
These tongue twisting verses go to the tune of the Battle Hymn of the Republic:

1. One pink porpoise popped up the hole
The other pink porpoise popped down 
One pink porpoise popped up the hole
The other pink porpoise popped down 
One pink porpoise popped up the hole 
The other pink porpoise popped down  
As one pink porpoise popped up the hole 
The other pink porpoise popped down


Refrain
Glory, glory how peculiar
Glory, glory how peculiar
Glory, glory how peculiar 
As one pink porpoise popped up the hole 
The other pink porpoise popped down


2. One free fly flew up the flue
The other free fly flew down...etc.

3. One warm worm wiggled up the walk
the other warm worm wiggled down...etc.

I'm sure more verses could be made up but these were enough to get everyone singing♫♪

Now that this is stuck in your head....deal with it! and have a nice day♥

  2. Never heard of this one -- but isn't it funny how, as a child, you could sing rhyming songs for hours that would drive you crazy now!!
