1 Oh! the bull-dog on the bank,
And the bull-frog in the pool,
Oh! the bull-dog on the bank,
And the bull-frog in the pool.
Oh! the bull-dog on the bank,
And the bull-frog in the pool,
The bull-dog call'd the bull-frog,
A green old water-fool.

Chorus:
Singing tra la la la la la la,
Singing tra la la la la la la,
Singing tra la la la la la,
Singing tra la la la la la,
Tra la la la, tra la la la, tra la la la la la.
Singing tra la la la la la la,
Singing tra la la la la la la,
Singing tra la la la la la,
Singing tra la la la la la,
Tra la la la, tra la la la, tra la la la la la.

2 Oh! the bull-dog stoop'd to catch him,
And the snapper caught his paw,
Oh! the bull-dog stoop'd to catch him,
And the snapper caught his paw,
Oh! the bull-dog stoop'd to catch him,
And the snapper caught his paw,
The pollywog died a-laughing,
To see him wag his jaw. [Chorus]

3 Says the monkey to the owl:
"Oh! what'll you have to drink?"
Says the monkey to the owl:
"Oh! what'll you have to drink?"
Says the monkey to the owl:
"Oh! what'll you have to drink?"
"Why since you are so very kind,
I'll take a bottle of ink." [Chorus]

4 Oh! the bulldog in the yard,
And the tomcat on the roof,
Oh! the bulldog in the yard,
And the tomcat on the roof,
Oh! the bulldog in the yard,
And the tomcat on the roof,
Are practicing the Highland fling,
And singing opera bouffe. [Chorus]

5 Says the tomcat to the dog:
"Oh! set your ears agog,
Says the tomcat to the dog:
"Oh! set your ears agog,
Says the tomcat to the dog:
"Oh! set your ears agog,
For Jule's about to tete-a-tete
With Romeo, incog. [Chorus]

6 Says the bull-dog to the cat:
"Oh! what do you think they're at
Says the bull-dog to the cat:
"Oh! what do you think they're at
Says the bull-dog to the cat:
"Oh! what do you think they're at
They're spoonig [sic] in the dead of night
But where's the harm in that?"

7 Pharaoh's daughter on the bank,
Little Moses in the pool,
Pharaoh's daughter on the bank,
Little Moses in the pool,
Pharaoh's daughter on the bank,
Little Moses in the pool,
Pharaoh's daughter on the bank,
Little Moses in the water. [Chorus]

8 Pharaoh's daughter on the bank,
Little Moses in the pool,
Pharaoh's daughter on the bank,
Little Moses in the pool,
Pharaoh's daughter on the bank,
Little Moses in the pool,
She fish'd him out with a telegraph pole,
And sent him on to school. [Chorus]
