Lyrics

When all the cows were sleeping
and the sun had gone to bed.
Up jumped the scarecrow
and this is what he said:

CHORUS
"I'm a dingle dangle scarecrow
with a flippy floppy hat,
I can shake my hands like this
and shake my feet like that."

When all the pigs were snoring
and the stars twinkled so bright.
Up jumped the scarecrow
and spoke with great delight.

CHORUS

When all the hens were roosting
and the moon behind a cloud.
Up jumped the scarecrow
and shouted very loud!

CHORUS
