Subject: Lyr Add: WOOLLY BOOGER (Tom Paxton)
How did this request get overlooked?

Here's my transcription from a sound file at Yahoo! music:


WOOLLY BOOGER
(Tom Paxton)

1. Tell me, where did the woolly booger go?
He was here about a half an hour ago.
He was very green, I know,
And he was sittin' on your toe.
Tell me, where did the woolly booger go?
Did he go, did he go,
Tell me, where did the woolly booger go?

2. Where can the woolly booger be?
He was higgly-wiggly-squiggly as can be.
He looked awfully big to me,
And he was sittin' on your knee.
Tell me, where can the woolly booger be?
Can he be, can he be,
Tell me, where can the woolly booger be?

3. Oh, where is that woolly booger now?
Did he get inside your t-shirt anyhow?
Is he crawling east or west?
Is he crawling on your chest?
Tell me, where is that woolly booger now?
Is he now, is he now,
Tell me, where is that woolly booger now?

4. Oh, where did that woolly booger hide?
Did it go for a woolly-booger ride?
Do you find it hard to hear?
Is it hiding in your ear?
Tell me, where did that woolly booger hide?
Did it hide, did it hide,
Tell me, where did that woolly booger hide?

5. Now I know where the woolly boogers go.
Shall I tell you the secret so you'll know?
See it floating in the sky.
It became a butterfly.
Now you know where the woolly boogers go.
Now you know, now you know,
Now you know where the woolly boogers go.
See it floating in the sky.
It became a butterfly.
Now you know where the woolly boogers go.
