SIPPIN' CIDER THROUGH A STRAW

THE PRETTIEST GIRL
I EVER SAW.
WAS SIPPIN' CIDER
THROUGH A STRAW.
I ASKED HER IF
SHE'D SHOW ME HOW.
TO SIP SOME CIDER
THROUGH A STRAW.
SHE SAID OF COURSE
SHE'D SHOW ME HOW
TO SIP SOME CIDER
THROUGH A STRAW.
AND NOW AND THEN
THE STRAW WOULD SLIP.
AND WE'D SIP CIDER
LIP TO LIP.
THAT'S HOW I GOT
MY MOTHER-IN-LAW.
FROM SIPPIN' CIDER
THROUGH A STRAW.
NOW 49 KIDS
ALL CALL ME PA.
FROM SIPPIN' CIDER
THROUGH A STRAW}
THE MORAL OF
THIS LITTLE TALE.
IS TO SIP YOUR CIDER
THROUGH A PAIL}

Submitter comment: THIS SONG IS MEANT TO BE SUNG WITH A LARGE GROUP
THAT ELECTS A LEADER TO SING THE VERSE AND THEN THE GROUP FOLLOWS.
THE VERSE IS THEN REPEATED BY EVERYONE.
