The Austrian

Song

Well, an Austrian went yodeling

On a mountain top high.

When along came an avalanche

Interrupting his cry.

 

O, dear-y (pat knees fast)

Oh, (pat knees once) der-akee (clap hands once) deary (snap once),

Oh (pat knees once)  der-a (clap hands once)  kookoo (snap once)

SWISH! (slide hands from right to left)

Oh, (pat knees once) der-akee (clap hands once) deary (snap once),

Oh (pat knees once)  der-a (clap hands once)  kookoo (snap once)

SWISH! (slide hands from right to left)

Oh, (pat knees once) der-akee (clap hands once) deary (snap once),

Oh (pat knees once)  der-a (clap hands once)  kookoo (snap once)

SWISH! (slide hands from right to left)

Oh (pat knees once), der-akee (clap hands once) deary (snap once),

Ohhhh! (pat knees once)

 

(Add these in each time you repeat:)

 

When along came a:

Grizzly bear GRRRR! (make hands into claws)

St. Bernard Pant! Pant!  (hold hands up like paws)

Baby WAAH!  WAAH!  (wipe eyes with fists)

Girl Scout COOKIES!  (say sweetly with arms out)

Pretty Girl kiss! kiss!  (kiss the air)

Her father BANG!  (shoot an imaginary rifle - end of song)
