Skip To My Lou

A classic children's song. Many people know the first stanza, perhaps the second.



Chorus:
Skip, skip, skip to my Lou,
Skip, skip, skip to my Lou,
Skip, skip, skip to my Lou,
Skip to my Lou, my darlin'.

Fly's in the buttermilk,
Shoo, fly, shoo,
Fly's in the buttermilk,
Shoo, fly, shoo,
Fly's in the buttermilk,
Shoo, fly, shoo,
Skip to my Lou, my darlin'.

(Chorus)

Pigs in the bathtub
Hullabaloo!
Pigs in the bathtub
Hullabaloo!
Pigs in the bathtub
Hullabaloo!
Skip to my Lou, my darlin'.

(Chorus)

There's a little red wagon,
Paint it blue...
Skip to my Lou, my darlin'.

(Chorus)


Additional Verses:
Lost my partner,
What'll I do?...
Skip to my lou, my darlin'.

I'll get another one
Prettier than you...
Skip to my Lou, my darlin'.

Can't get a red bird,
Jay bird'll do...
Skip to my Lou, my darlin'.

Cat's in the cream jar,
Ooh, ooh, ooh...
Skip to my Lou, my darlin'.

Off to Texas,
Two by two...
Skip to my Lou, my darlin'.
