Lyrics

Philo: Okay, Gunge. Here I go. I'm turning on the key to start the old bus.

Gunge: Okay, Philo, go ahead. (laughing) It started. Terrific.

Philo: Yeah.

Gunge: Well, we're all set to start our drive up to my Uncle Maximillian's farm for a picnic.

Philo: Yep. You know, Gunge. It was sure nice of your Uncle Maximillian to invite us out to his farm and then lend us his old bus to drive out there.

Gunge: Yeah, I know. Well, we're almost ready to go now. Come on. It's going to be a terrific trip. There's only one thing that's kind of bothering me a little bit.

Philo: What's that, Gunge?

Gunge: Well, it's kind of a long trip to Uncle Maximillian's farm and we'll have to think of something to do to pass the time while we're driving.

Philo: Ooh, well, that oughta be easy. Did you bring your paperclip collection along?

Gunge: Sure. But we can't play with the paperclip collection on the moving bus. The paperclips could spill all over the place. They're very valuable.

Philo: Yeah. Mmm, I guess you're right, Gunge. Well, we can't practice our ball play. There's not enough room. And there's no tubby in the bus, so we can't play with my old pal, Rubber Duckie.

Gunge: No, and we can't watch TV or skip rope.

Philo: Hey, wait a minute, Gunge.

Gunge: What?

Philo: I know a terrific thing to do while we're driving.

Gunge: Oh, what is it, Philo? What?

Philo: Well, it's just the perfect thing.

Gunge: Yeah?

Philo: You see, I can do it and you and I can do it together and then we can do it with everyone else after we picked them up.

Gunge: So everybody can do it together.

Philo: That's right, Gunge.

Gunge: Okay, Philo, what is it?

Philo: Well, I'll show you. Matter of fact, I'll start right now.

Gunge: Okay, go ahead.

Philo: Let's sing a song that everybody knows!

Gunge: Oh.

Philo: A song that we've all heard before

Gunge: That's a good idea.

Philo: The tune is simple we know how it goes
With simple words and nothing more


Gunge: Great.

Philo: The steady rhythm and the harmony
Makes singing such an easy thing so.....
Let's sing a song that everybody knows
So that everyone can sing!
See what I mean, Gunge?


Gunge: That's a terrific idea, Philo.

Philo: Let's sing a song that everybody knows!

Gunge: Hey, hey, Philo! Wait! I've got one!

Philo: Yeah?

Gunge: You wanna hear it?

Philo: Sure.

Gunge: Here goes.
The bear went over the mountain.


Philo: Oh, that's a good one, Gunge.

Gunge: The bear went over the mountain
The bear went over the mountain to see what he could see.
Come on, Philo.


Philo and Gunge: To see what he could see, to what he could see.
Oh, the bear went over the mountain,
the bear went over the mountain
The bear went over the mountain to see what he could see


Gunge: (laughing)

Philo: Oh, great. Hey, Gunge. I just thought up a good one.

Gunge: What?

Philo: How about this one? Listen...
Oh, the itsy bitty spider


Gunge: Oh, yeah.

Philo: Went up the water spout
Down came the rain and washed the spider out
Up came the sun and dried up all the rain
So the itsy bitsy spider went up the spout again.


Gunge: That was good. But I've got one that everyone will know. Ready?
A-B-C-D-E-F-G...


Philo: Oh, yeah.

Gunge: H-I-J-K-L-M-N-O-P-Q-R-S-T-U-V-W-X-Y-Z!
Now I know my ABC's. Next time won't you sing with me?
That was the alphabet song.


Philo: Very nice, Gunge.

Gunge: Thank you.

Philo: Hey, but I've got one.

Gunge: What?

Philo: And even if you've never heard it, the words are really easy.

Gunge: Oh, boy. Oh, boy. Yeah.

Philo: So get this one.

Gunge: Okay, here we go.

Philo: George Washington Bridge!

Gunge: Uh huh.

Philo: George Washington Washington Bridge.
George Washington Bridge. George Washington Washington Bridge.


Gunge: Philo.

Philo: It gets real sad now, Gunge.
George Washington Bridge.


Gunge: Philo, cut that out.

Philo: George Washington Washington Bridge.

Gunge: Real cute, Gunge.

Philo: But it ends up real happy now, Gunge.
GEORGE WAHINGTON BRIDGE!


Gunge: Oh, Philo.

Philo: GEORGE WASHINGTON WASHINGTON BRIDGE!

Philo and Gunge: Oh! Let's sing a song that everybody knows!
A song that we've all heard before!
The tune is simple we know how it goes
With simple words and nothing more

The steady rhythm and the harmony
Makes singing such an easy thing so....
Let's sing a song that everybody knows
So that everyone can sing
So that everyone......can sing!
