Rippy the Gator

Hi, kids!
Welcome to the Uncle Bobo Show!
Are you ready to sing?
Come on, let's go!


Billy and his family went on a holiday
They went down to Florida, to laugh and dance and play
Billy went in for a swim; he didn't see the harm
But when he came back out again, he was short an arm

   'Cause Rippy the Gator went chomp! chomp! chomp!
   Rippy the Gator went chomp! chomp! chomp!
   Passing the time by ending children's lives
   Down in the bottom of the swamp

Billy and his father went out to play some catch
But Billy missed the pass because his arm was unattached
The ball flew past his shoulder and it rolled into the swamp
When he went wading after it, his leg became a stump

   (chorus)

Billy and his father joined a three-legged race
They were tearing up the field; no one could keep the pace
But Billy tripped and did a flip and landed in the muck
He was running out of limbs, and also out of luck

   (chorus)

Billy was all dirty; he really had to wash
But he couldn't use a towel because his limbs had been gnawed off
He went into the water to get all clean and bright
But when his bath was finished, he was only half his height

   (chorus)

Billy's father rolled his wheelchair up upon a hill
He wanted to put Bill where he would not get killed
But he left him the slope and, into the swamp, he rolled
They dragged out his head, but there was nothing left below

   (chorus)


It's more fun than it sounds. The audience joins in on the "chomp! chomp! chomp!" parts, imitating gator jaws with extended arms.
