Down by the bay

New song! 🙂

Now, this is an all time favourite by what I see, that I discover now.

It can be quite long, and it’s very catchy.

It repeats the same lyrics over and over again but changing a line at the end.

It goes like this:

             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 bear combing his hair?”
             Down by the bay

Now, there are different versions, and they all kind of start with a different line, but it’s always something like “an animal doing something” that rhymes.

So apart from “a bear combing his hair”, we have:

– “a goose kissing a moose”
– “a whale with a polka dot tail”
– “a pig wearing a wig”
– “a cat wearing a hat”
– “a goat wearing a coat”
-Etc. Although not necessarily always in the same order.

Here you watch a video:

And here you can listen to Raffi’s version, which is one of the most famous:
