Back

My Uncle

(Tune: My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean) (Substitute someone else's name for "uncle" if you wish) My uncle fell into a pothole In a glacier while climbing an Alp. He's still there after 50 long winters, And all you can see is his scalp. Chorus: Bring back, bring back, O bring back my uncle to me, to me. Bring back, bring back, O bring back my uncle to me. My uncle was proud of his whiskers, To shave them would give him the blues. They hung all the way to his ankles, And he used them for shining his shoes. Chorus: My uncle had faith in a sailboat He had built from an old hollow tree. My uncle set sail for Australia, Now my uncle lies under the sea. Chorus: My uncle made friends with hyenas, He gave them a ride on his raft. When a crocodile reached up and grabbed him, The hyenas just sat there and laughed. Chorus: My uncle annoyed his dear parents They tossed him right out of the bus. And if we don't mend our behavior, Why that's what will happen to us.
