Now on that tree there was a limb, a rare limb, a rattlin’ limb
With a limb on the tree, with the tree in the bog,
With the bog down in the valley-O.

Now on that limb there was a branch, a rare branch, a rattlin’ branch
With the branch on the limb, with the limb on the tree,
With the tree in the bog, with the bog down in the valley-O.

Now on that branch there was a twig, a rare twig, a rattlin’ twig
with the twig on the branch, with the branch on the limb,
With the limb on the tree, with the tree in the bog,
With the bog down in the valley-O.

Now on that twig there was a nest, a rare nest, a rattlin’ nest
With the nest on the twig, with the twig on the branch,
With the branch on the limb, with the limb on the tree,
With the tree in the bog, with the bog down in the valley-O.

Now on that nest there was a egg, a rare egg, a rattlin’ egg
With the egg in the nest, with the nest on the twig,
With the twig on the branch, with the branch on the limb,
With the limb on the tree, with the tree in the bog,
With the bog down in the valley-O.

Now on that egg there was a bird, a rare bird, a rattlin’ bird
With the bird on the egg, with the egg in the nest,
With the nest on the twig, with the twig on the branch,
With the branch on the limb, with the limb on the tree,
With the tree in the bog, with the bog down in the valley-O.

Now on that bird there was a feather, a rare feather, a rattlin’ feather
With the feather on the bird, with the bird on the egg,
With the egg in the nest, with the nest on the twig,
With the twig on the branch, with the branch on the limb,
With the limb on the tree, with the tree in the bog,
With the bog down in the valley-O.

Now on that feather there was a flea, a rare flea, a rattlin’ flea
With a flea on the feather, with the feather on the bird,
With the bird in the egg, with the egg in the nest,
With the nest on the twig, with the twig on the branch,
With the branch on the limb, with the limb on the tree,
With the tree in the bog, with the bog down in the valley-O.
