lyrics

Oh Ho! We are the Billy Goats Gruff
Oh Ho! The Billy Goats Gruff are we
Oh Ho! We are the Billy Goats Gruff
Oh Ho! The Billy Goats Gruff are we

Our story begins as the littlest Billy Goat Gruff crosses the bridge
Trip trop, trip trop, … And the Troll said,
Who’s that trip tropping over my bridge?
I’m a hungry Troll with an empty fridge

Oh Ho! Please be kind to me!
I’m the littlest Billy Goat Gruff as you can see
Oh Ho! I’m much too skinny for you
You should wait for my bigger brother who’s coming_along soon

So the Troll grumbled while he thought about it
Hmmmmm….
Very well. Be off before I change my mind
You may cross my bridge but just this one time
And so by and by, along came the middle sized Billy Goat Gruff
Trip trop, trip trop, … And the Troll said,
Who’s that trip tropping over my bridge?
I’m a hungry Troll with an empty fridge

Oh Ho! Please be kind to me!
I’m the middle sized Billy Goat Gruff as you can see
Oh Ho! I’m much too skinny for you
You should wait for my bigger brother who’s coming_along soon

So the Troll grumbled while he thought about it
Hmmmmm….
Very well. Be off before I change my mind
You may cross my bridge but just this one time
And so by and by, along came the great big Billy Goat Gruff
Trip trop, trip trop, … And the Troll said,
Who’s that trip tropping over my bridge?
I’m a hungry Troll with an empty fridge

Oh Ho! Please be kind to me
I’m the great big Billy Goat Gruff as you can see
Oh Ho! You can’t carry on
Bullying everybody who comes along

Well you know the only reason I act this way
Is because I’ve never had a friend to hang out with or play
Nobody seems to want to make friends with a Troll
Sometimes I just want to crawl into a deep dark hole

Oh Ho! Why don’t you come with me
Come be friends with us the Billy Goats Three
Oh Ho! If you’ll stop playing rough
You can come be friends with us the Billy Goats Gruff
