Down By the Bay

Down by the bay (repeat),
Where the watermelons grow (repeat),
Back to my home (repeat),
I dare not go (repeat),
For if I do (repeat),
My mother will say:"

"Did you ever see a goose, kissing a moose?"
"Did you ever see an ant, eating a plant?"
"Did you ever see a whale, with a polka-dot tail?" (this is the original variation)
"Did you ever see a bear, combing his hair?"
"Did you ever see a llama, eating his pajamas?"
"Did you ever see a fly, wearing a tie?"
"Did you ever see a bee with a sunburned knee?"
"Did you ever have a time when you couldn't make a rhyme?"
"Did you ever see a rhino kissing a dino?" (Barney and Friends)
"Did you ever see a goat standing in a boat?"
"Did you ever wonder why, I've always sounded high?"
"This doggone song's gone on too long!" ..."Down by the bay."

Usually follows some kind of variation on "Did you ever see a _____, _____ing a _____", with rhyming words, for example:
