If you've caught them all, you're probably already sick of this song. The "route" music in the Pokemon games seems to be a total knockoff of "Polly Wolly Doodle." (No relation to Wang Dang Doodle.)

This song is about a playa with at least two girlfriends (Sarah, nicknamed Sal, and Susanna) in the South and at least one in the North.

Oh, I went down South to see my Sal
Sing Polly wolly doodle all the day
My Sal, she is a spunky gal
Sing Polly wolly doodle all the day

chorus:
Fare thee well, Fare thee well,
Fare thee well my fairy fay
For I'm going to Louisiana For to see my Susanna
Sing Polly wolly doodle all the day

Oh, my Sal, she is a maiden fair
Sing Polly wolly doodle all the day.
With curly eyes and laughing hair
Sing Polly wolly doodle all the day.

(repeat chorus)

Behind the barn, down on my knees
Sing Polly wolly doodle all the day
I thought I heard a chicken sneeze
Sing Polly wolly doodle all the day.

(repeat chorus)

He sneezed so hard with the whooping cough
Sing Polly wolly doodle all the day
He sneezed his head and the tail right off
Sing Polly wolly doodle all the day.

(repeat chorus)

Oh, a grasshopper sittin' on a railroad track
Sing Polly wolly doodle all the day.
Pickin' his teeth with a carpet tack
Sing Polly wolly doodle all the day.

(repeat chorus)

Oh, I went to bed but it wasn't any use
Sing Polly wolly doodle all the day
My feet stuck out like a chicken roost
Sing Polly wolly doodle all the day.

(repeat chorus)

I know what "All Your Base Are Belong To Us" means, but "Polly Wolly Doodle" is almost as meaningless as "Scooter My Daisyheads."

(SeQram dared me to do it)
