MandolinPaul Rippy(?) the Gator (6) Rippy(?) the Gator 04 May 02

Hey kids.

I saw a guy at a pub near Ottawa, last night, do this song. It's about a kid named Billy who keeps falling in the swamp, and loses a limb to this alligator each time. I think the gator's name was Rippy.

The chorus went something like:

Well Rippy the Gator went chomp chomp chomp
Yeah, Rippy the Gator went chomp chomp chomp
(don't remember the next two lines, but they ended with "in the swamp swamp swamp"

Does anyone know this? Lyrics and melody would be nice, but I'd take one or the other. Any help you can provide would contribute to my two-year-old son's nightmares.

Thanks, eh.
