O-ro the rattlin' bog, the bog down in the valley-o
O-ro the rattlin' bog, the bog down in the valley-o

And in that bog there was a tree, a rare tree, a rattlin' tree
With a tree in the bog and the bog down in the valley-o

O-ro the rattlin' bog, the bog down in the valley-o
O-ro the rattlin' bog, the bog down in the valley-o

On that tree there was a limb, a rare limb, a rattlin' limb
With the limb on the tree, with the tree in the bog
And the bog down in the valley-o

O-ro the rattlin' bog, the bog down in the valley-o
O-ro the rattlin' bog, the bog down in the valley-o

On that limb there was a branch, a rare branch,
A rattlin' branch
With a branch on the limb, with the limb on the tree,
With the tree in the bog
With the bog down in the valley-o

O-ro the rattlin' bog, the bog down in the valley-o
O-ro the rattlin' bog, the bog down in the valley-o

On that branch there was a twig, a rare twig, a rattlin' twig
With the twig on the branch, with the branch on the limb,
With the limb on the tree, with the tree in the bog
With the bog down in the valley-o

O-ro the rattlin' bog, the bog down in the valley-o
O-ro the rattlin' bog, the bog down in the valley-o

On that twig there was a nest, a rare nest, a rattlin' nest
With the nest on the twig, with the twig on the branch,
With the branch on the limb, with the limb on the tree,
With the tree in the bog
With the bog down in the valley-o

O-ro the rattlin' bog, the bog down in the valley-o
O-ro the rattlin' bog, the bog down in the valley-o

On that nest there was a egg, a rare egg, a rattlin' egg
With an egg in the nest, with the nest on the twig,
With the twig on the branch, with the branch on the limb,
With the limb on the tree, with the tree in the bog
With the bog down in the valley-o

O-ro the rattlin' bog, the bog down in the valley-o
O-ro the rattlin' bog, the bog down in the valley-o

On that egg there was a bird, a rare bird, a rattlin' bird
With a bird in the egg, with an egg in the nest,
With the nest on the twig,
With the twig on the branch, with the branch on the limb,
With the limb on the tree, with the tree in the bog
With the bog down in the valley-o

O-ro the rattlin' bog, the bog down in the valley-o
O-ro the rattlin' bog, the bog down in the valley-o

On that bird there was a feather, a rare feather,
A rattlin' feather
With a feather on the bird, with the bird in the egg,
With an egg in the nest, with the nest on the twig,
With the twig on the branch, with the branch on the limb,
With the limb on the tree, with the tree in the bog
With the bog down in the valley-o

O-ro the rattlin' bog, the bog down in the valley-o
O-ro the rattlin' bog, the bog down in the valley-o

On that feather there was a flea, a rare flea,
A rattlin' flea
With a flea on the feather, with the feather on the bird,
With the bird in the egg, with an egg in the nest,
With the nest on the twig, with the twig on the branch,
With the branch on the limb, with the limb on the tree,
With the tree in the bog
With the bog down in the valley-o
