Lyrics

*The song is often repeated many times, getting louder each time. The last line “and his tail right off” is spoken quietly each time. The very last time, the entire song is spoken quietly to end the song.

Way down the road
Way down the road
Not so very far off
Not so very far off
A jaybird died
A jaybird died
Of the whooping cough
Of the whooping cough
Well he whooped so hard
Well he whooped so hard
And he whooped so long
And he whooped so long
That he whooped his head
That he whooped his head
And his tail right off
And his tail right off
