Deck Us All With Boston Charlie
The most famous version:
Deck us all with Boston Charlie,
Walla Walla, Wash, and Kalamazoo!
Nora’s freezin’ on the trolley,
Swaller dollar cauliflower Alleygaroo!
Don’t we know archaic barrel, Lullaby Lilla Boy, Louisville Lou.
Trolley Molly don’t love Harold, Boola Boola Pensacoola Hullabaloo!
Then there is Beauregard’s version:
Bark us all bow-wows of folly, Polly wolly cracker n too-da-loo!
Donkey Bonny brays a carol, Antelope cantaloup, ‘lope with you!
Hunky Dory’s pop is lolly gaggin’ on the wagon, Willy, folly go through!
Chollie’s collie barks at Barrow, Harum scarum five alarum bung-a-loo!
We also have this third version:
Duck us all in bowls of barley, Ninky dinky dink an’ polly voo!
Chilly Filly’s name is Chollie, Chollie Filly’s jolly chilly view halloo!
Bark us all bow-wows of folly, Double-bubble, toyland trouble! Woof, Woof, Woof!
Tizzy seas on melon collie! Dibble-dabble, scribble-scrabble! Goof, Goof, Goof!
But no matter what the words are or who’s doing the singing it’s the joy of being connected with other human beings
