I want to see how many here know all the verses to "Rattlin' Bog"

Next person give the next verse.

...the tree in the bog and the bog down in the valley-o....

Isn't it:

... tree in the hole, in the hole in the bog, in the bog down in the valley-o.

I think the next line is:

...branch on the tree, on a tree in the hole, in the hole in the bog, in the bog down in the valley-o.

Actually, limb comes before branch, being a larger circumpherenced piece of the tree, so

limb on the tree and the tree in the hole and the hole in the bog and the bog down in the valley-o

Then

branch on the limb and the limb on the tree and the tree in the hole and the hole in the bog and the bog down in the valley-o

I had to look this one up.

I was most familiar with the "Irish Descendants" version and it goes like this: (Yes there is bird twice.)

1.bog
2.hole
3.tree
4.branch
5.limb
6.nest
7.bird
8.egg
9.bird
10.feather
11.worm
12.hair
13.louse
14.tick
15.rash

I think most people are familiar with this version: (Probably the most common version)

1.bog
2.tree
3.limb
4.branch
5.twig
6.nest
7.egg
8.bird
9.feather
10.flea

The one I know is

1. bog
2. tree
3. limb
4. branch
5. twig
6. nest
7. bird
8. wing
9. feather
10. gnat
11. eye
12. eyelash

but I think the original composer is dead so you can sing whatever version you want, or make up your own.
