Turn back the clock
And recall what you did
Back on the block where
You lived as a kid.

And if you think every kid nowadays
Is a nut or a kook or a fool,
Just turn back the clock
And recall what you said

When you were a kid in school. 
Ah, your mother wears army shoes!
Nyah nyah nyah nyah nyah nyah.

Teacher, teacher, I declare,
I see your purple underwear.

Margarite, go wash your feet,
The board of health's across the street.

Ladies and gentlemen, take my advice,
Pull down your pants and slide on the ice.

Inka binka, bottle of ink,
The cork fell out and you stink.

Nyah nyah nyah nyah nyah nyah.

Mary had a little lamb,
The doctor was surprised!

Mary had a little lamb,
She also had a bear.
I've often seen her little lamb,
But I've never seen her bare.

Nyah nyah nyah nyah nyah nyah.

Roses are red, violets are blue,
I copied your paper and I flunked too.

Roses are red, violets are blue,
Whenever it rains, I think of you - drip, drip, drip!

Roses are red, violets are blue,
I still say your mother wears army shoes!

Nyah nyah nyah nyah nyah nyah.

Your mother is a burglar,
Your father is a spy,
And you're the dirty little rat
Who told the F.B.I.

Dirty Lil, Dirty Lil,
Lives on top of Garbage Hill,
Never took a bath and never will,
Yuck, pooey, Dirty Lil.

Oh what a face, oh what a figure,
Two more legs and you'd look like Trigger!

A be	 see D goldfish?
L M N O goldfish.
S A are 2 goldfish, see M?

Turn back the clock
And recall what you did
Back on the block where
You lived as a kid.

And if you think every kid nowadays
Is a nut or a kook or a fool,
Just turn back the clock
And recall what you said
When you were a kid in school.

There goes your father wearing your mother's army shoes!
