On Top of Old Smoky for Easy Piano


On Top of Old Smoky Kids Song Lyrics

On top of old Smokey,
All covered with snow,
I lost my true lover,
For courtin’ so slow.

For courting’s a pleasure,
But parting is grief,
And the false hearted lover,
Is worse than a thief.

On Top of Spaghetti Kids Song Lyrics (Parody)

On top of spaghetti all covered with cheese.
I lost my poor meatball when somebody sneezed.
It rolled off the table, it rolled on the floor,
And then my poor meatball rolled out of the door.

It rolled in the garden and under a bush,
And then my poor meatball was nothing but mush.
The mush was as tasty as tasty could be,
And early next summer it grew to a tree.

The tree was all covered with beautiful moss.
It grew great big meatballs and tomato sauce.
So if you eat spaghetti all covered with cheese,
Hold on to your meatball and don’t ever sneeze.

All the king’s horses and all the king’s men
Couldn’t put Humpty together again.
