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

next:

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.
