about

A command performance for the grandkids, who loved hearing it when they came to visit but couldn't remember most of the words once they got home.

Written by Charles Earnest Moody and recorded in 1928 by the Georgia Yellow Hammers.

lyrics

When I was a kid, this is what I did
To pass the time away
I’d look all around until I'd find
A doodle hole, then I’d say

Doodle, doodle, doodle; up, up, up
Doodle, doodle, doodle; up, up, up
That doodle would jump up and look all around
And doodle back into the ground

What a pleasure to me it was to see
That doodle coming out
We'd gaze on down and in the ground
Would twist our face about.
Doodle, doodle, doodle...

I don’t know why to a doodle I’d lie
But this is what I’d say:
"Oh, your house is afire and your children [are] crying
Oh, doodle, come up this way.”
Doodle, doodle, doodle...
