Down by the bay. (Down by the bay.)

Where the watermelons grow. (Where the watermelons grow.)

Back to my home. (Back to my home.)

I dare not go. (I dare not go.)

For if I do. (For if I do.)

My mother will say. (Mother will say.) Did you ever see a goose kissing a moose?

(Down by the bay)

Did you ever see a whale with a polka dot tail?

(Down by the bay, Down by the bay)

Did you ever see a parot eating a carot?

(Down by the bay, Down by the bay)

Did you ever see a bear combing his hair?

(Down by the bay, Down by the bay)

Did you ever see a goat riding in a boat?

(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 rhino kissing a dino?

(Down by the bay)

Did you ever see some friends having fun that never ends?

(Down by the bay)
