Now eenie meenie minie moe
Catch that monkey by the toe
If he hollers let him go
Eenie meenie minie moe

Scatty-ah, pa swings it so does ma
Scatty-ah, ma swings it so does pa
Scatty-ah, you swing it so do I
Scatty-ah, I swing it so do you

When he turns that handle down
Music goes around 'n' around
Everybody starts to sing
To that organ grinder's swing

Tra-la, pa swings it so does ma
Tra-la, ma swings it so does pa
Tra-la, you swing it so do I
Tra-la, I swing it so do you

Now all the children tag along
Just to listen to his song
Monkey dancing on a string
To the organ grinder's swing

Oh-hum
Oh-hum
Oh-hum
Oh-hum, I swing it so do you

Drop a nickle in his hat
Like a rich aristocrat
Every nickle that you fling
Makes that organ grinder swing

Hi-ho
Hi-ho
Hi-ho
Hi-ho, I swing it so do you

(scat verse)

Eenie meenie minie moe
Catch that monkey by the toe
This music makes me want to sing
Oh you organ grinder's swing
