[Verse:]
Listen to the ocarina play
Listen, don't you seem to hear it say

[Refrain:]
Dance to the music of the ocarina
Ocarina, ocarina
Gretchen and Otto, Hans and Wilhelmina
Dance to the ocarina dance
Dance to the music of the sweet potata
Sweet potata, sweet potata
Cheeks gettin' redder than a ripe tomata
Dance to the ocarina dance
Listen and hear the notes escaping
Out of that tiny hole
Doesn't it please your soul?
Doesn't it say, "Dance the polka"?
Step to the music of the ocarina
Who refuses? Wilhelmina?
Wait till she listens to the ocarina
I know that Wilhelmina will
