Original video
My name is Ticklish Reuben
From way back in old Vermont
I've been tickled by a yellow bumblebee

I've been tickled in the morning I've been tickled in the noon
For there's something's always sure has tickled me

I have always got some tickles sort of way about my clothes
It doesn't really matter where I be

And the apple-butter paddle it is all in splinters now
'Cause Mother wore it out a-ticklin' me

Hah hah...

I've been tickled in the morning I've been tickled in the noon
For there's something's always sure has tickled me

I have always got some tickles sort of way about my clothes
It doesn't really matter where I be

And the apple-butter paddle it is all in splinters now
'Cause Mother wore it out a-ticklin' me

Hah hah...

I've been tickled in the morning I've been tickled in the noon
For there's something's always sure has tickled me

Once I put some pepper into Dad's snuffbox
And the way he acted was a sight to see
He coughed and he sneezed till I thought he'd have a fit
And then he took me out and tickled me

Hah hah...

I've been tickled in the morning I've been tickled in the noon
For there's something's always sure has tickled me

I was always getting tickled by someone about the house
So why they did it I could never see
And the apple-butter paddle it is all in splinters now
'Cause Mother wore it out a-ticklin' me

Hah hah...

I've tickled in the morning and I've tickled in the noon
For there's something's always sure to tickle me
