The Rag Man

The Rag Man Lyrics

"Rag-man, rag-man,

  Taggy, taggy, rag-man,

  Tell us what you've got there in your sack."


  "Oh--it's full of rimes and riddles,

  Jingles, jokes, and hi-de-diddles--

  This bundle that I carry on my back."


  "O tell us, funny rag-man,

  Grinny, skinny rag-man,

  Where did you pick up your funny rimes?"


  "Some were dancing with corn-flowers,

  Some were hiding in church-towers,

  And sprinkled helter-skelter by the chimes."


  "Rag-man, rag-man,

  Nice old taggy rag-man,

  Sing us just one jingle, tingle song."


  "Why, my dears, I've got a plenty,

  Sing you one? I'll sing you twenty--

  I've been hoping you would ask me all along."
