about

The only thing sillier than this song is that I once wrote an extremely serious and erudite academic research paper all about this song. It was wonderful.

lyrics

Down by the bay where the watermelons grow,
Back to my home I dare not go,
For if I do, my mother will say:
"Did you ever see a sheep driving a jeep?"
Down by the bay!

Down by the bay where the watermelons grow,
Back to my home I dare not go,
For if I do, my mother will say:
"Did you ever see a lion with a polka dot tie on?"
Down by the bay!

Down by the bay where the watermelons grow,
Back to my home I dare not go,
For if I do, my mother will say:
"Did you ever see a shoe playing the kazoo?"
Down by the bay!

Down by the bay where the watermelons grow,
Back to my home I dare not go,
For if I do, my mother will say:
"Did you ever see a unicorn playing on the fugelhorn?"
Down by the bay!

Down by the bay where the watermelons grow,
Back to my home I dare not go,
For if I do, my mother will say:
"Did you ever see a walrus... eating an orange?"
Down by the bay!
("That doesn't even rhyme!")
Down by the bay!
