about

Here’s another oldie but goodie, in which the actions pile up on top of each other. This song is in ¾ time. You get to play the “1 – 2 – 3” waltzing rhythm by tapping your knees, clapping, then snapping your fingers – knees, clap, snap - knees, clap, snap.

lyrics

An old Austrian went yodeling on a mountain top high
When along came an avalanche – Swoosh!
Interrupting his cry. And he went,
Yodel–ay–hee-hee! Yodel–ay–hee–hoo! Swoosh!
Yodel–ay–hee-hee! Yodel–ay–hee–hoo! Swoosh!
Yodel–ay–hee-hee! Yodel–ay–hee–hoo! Swoosh!
Yodel–ay–hee–hoo!

An old Austrian went yodeling on a mountain top high
When along came a St Bernard – Heh, heh, heh, heh!
Interrupting his cry. And he went,
Yodel–ay–hee-hee! Yodel–ay–hee–hoo! Swoosh!
Heh, heh, heh, heh!
Yodel-ay-hee-hee . . .

An old Austrian went yodeling on a mountain top high
When along came a mountain goat – Bahhhhh
Interrupting his cry. And he went,
Yodel–ay–hee-hee! Yodel–ay–hee–hoo! Swoosh!
Heh, heh, heh! Bahhhhhhh!
Yodel-ay-hee-hee . . .

An old Austrian went yodeling on a mountain top high
When along came a pretty girl – Mmmwah!
Interrupting his cry. And he went,
Yodel–ay–hee-hee! Yodel–ay–hee–hoo! Swoosh!
Heh, heh, heh! Bahhhhh! Mmmwah!
Yodel-ay-hee-hee . . .

An old Austrian went yodeling on a mountain top high
When along came an abominable snowman– Roarrrr!
Interrupting his cry. And he went,
Yodel–ay–hee-hee! Yodel–ay–hee–hoo! Swoosh!
Heh, heh, heh! Bahhhhh! Mmmwah! Roarrrr!
Yodel-ay-hee-hee . . .

An old Austrian went yodeling on a mountain top high
When along came a snowboarder– Gnarly dude!
Interrupting his cry. And he went,
Yodel–ay–hee-hee! Yodel–ay–hee–hoo! Swoosh!
Heh, heh, heh! Bahhhhh! Mmmwah! Roarrrr! Gnarly dude!
Yodel-ay-hee-hee . . .
