Up The Tall White Candlestick

Up the tall white candlestick
(Make left arm into candlestick)

Crept little Mousie Brown
(Two fingers of fight hand run up the candlestick)

Right to the top but he couldn't get down
(Fingers wiggle at top)

So he called to his Grandma
(Call through cupped hands)

Grandma! Grandma!
But Grandma was in town
So he curled himself into a ball
And rolled himself right down
(Clench both fists and roly-poly them round each other)

John Cook

John Cook he had a little grey mare;
he, haw, hum!

Her back stood up, and her bones they were bare;
he, haw, hum!

John was riding up Shunter's Bank;
he, haw, hum!

And there his nag did kick and prank;
he, haw, hum!

John Cook was riding up Shunter's Hill;
he, haw, hum!

His mare fell down and she made her will;
he, haw, hum!

The bridle and saddle were laid on the shelf;
he, haw, hum!

If you want any more you my sing it yourself;
he, haw, hum!
