Stop!

 (Bob Nolan)

 

Sing along with the Sons of the Pioneers

 

Woe [whoa] is me, my children, woe, I say.

For there’s one little word can’t never be heard - that’s “Stop!” I say.

 

I got a gal in the Cumberland Mountains, pretty as she can be.

Pure as streams and the bubblin’ fountain, mine she’s gonna be.

I says, “Sal, should we oughta get hitched and shall I name the day?”

But her pappy showed up with a two-hole pistol, “Stop!” he say.

 

Woe is me, my children, woe, I say,

For her pappy showed up with a two-hole pistol, “Stop!” he say.

 

Bullfrog sleep by the lily pad pond and the pollywog he comes by.

The pollywog wink and the bullfrog blink and he opens up his eye.

Said the bullfrog, “Pollywog, let’s take a swim in the lily pad pond close by”.

When the bullfrog div and the pollywog give with a, “Stop! It’s dry!”

 

Woe is me, my children, woe, I say,

When the bullfrog div and the pollywog give with a “Stop! It’s dry!”

 

I got a mule, got a mighty fine mule, boys, I got a mule for sale.

But I think that I oughta tell you why - he’s got a granny knot in his tail.

He turned his nose at my courtin’ clothes, he turned me down today

With a hee-haw hoot at my catalog suit, he stop and bray.

 

Woe is me, my children, woe, I say,

With a hee-haw hoot at my catalog suit, he stop and bray.
