(music to go here)

Roll and go, roll over the road where the goat explodes all the O's in a row
and the crow flies low, past a croaky toad,
And the boat floats over the ocean alone,
But the wind did blow and it started to snow
So the goat went home to the telephone and he spoke to the goat
Who was eating a bowl of bones and potatoes and so-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-oap.

And a rope did float and it hooked the goat
So the boy climbed the stone made of O's,
The O's turned to smoke and started to flowt closer to the bulldozer!

To close up the hole so the cold wind could not blow
And the sun did show so the roses could grow
and the whole world could know that the boat, bulldozer, the toad and the crow,
the boy on the rope, riding a goat, were all OK!
