​Jig Along Home

This song is by Raffi and appears on the album The Corner Grocery Store (1979).

I went to a dance in the animals' kingdom,
The jay bird danced with horseshoes on.
Grasshopper danced till he fell on the floor,
Jig along, jig along jig along home.

Jig, jig-a-jig-a-jig-a-jig along home,
Jig, jig-a-jig-a-jig-a-jig along home.
Jig along, jig along, jig along home,
Jig, jig-a-jig-a-jig-a-jig along home.

Fishing worm danced the fishing reel,
Lobsters danced on the peacock's tail.
Baboon danced with the rising moon,
Jig along, jig along, jig along home.

Mama Rat took off her hat,
Shook the house with the old tom cat.
The alligator beat his tail on the drum,
Jig along, jig along, jig along home.

Well, the boards did rattle and the house did shake,
The clouds did laugh and the world did quake.
New moon rattled some silver spoons,
Jig along, jig along, jig along home.

The nails flew loose and the floor broke down,
Everybody danced around and around.
The house came down and the crowd went home,
Jig along, jig along, jig along home.
