I had a friend, a friend I could trust
He went into the park and got busted
Doin' the ring-a-round-a-rosy rag
Went in the park late at night
And he put a lot of people over eighty up tight
He was doin' the ring-a-round-a-rosy rag

Ring around, ring around rose
Touch your nose and blow your toes and mind
Doin' the ring-around-a-rosy rag
Ring around, ring-around-a-rose
Touch your nose and blow your toes and mind
Doin' the ring-around-a-rosy rag

We ought to send Officer Joe Strange
To some Australian mountain range
So we all can do the ring-around-a-rosy rag
Would you like to put Philadelphia up tight
One mass ring-around-a-rosy, in the middle of the night?
Yes we all should do the ring-around-a-rosy rag

Ring around, ring around rose
Touch your nose and blow your toes and mind
Doin' the ring-around-a-rosy rag
And it really was a drag
I said, "Ring around, ring-around-a-rose
Touch your nose and blow your toes and mind
Doin' the ring-around-a-rosy "

Touch your nose and blow your toes
There one you're doin' the ring-around-a-rosy rag
