Lyrics

There’s a tiny house (There’s a tiny house)
By a tiny stream (By a tiny stream)
Where a lovely lass (Where a lovely lass)
Had a lovely dream (Had a lovely dream)
And her dream came true (And her dream came true)
Quite unexpectedly
In Gilly Gilly Ossenfeffer Katzenellen Bogen By The Sea

She was out one day (She was out one day)
Where the tulips grow (Where the tulips grow)
When a handsome lad (When a handsome lad)
Stopped to say hello (Stopped to say hello)
And before she knew (And before she knew)
He kissed her tenderly
In Gilly Gilly Ossenfeffer Katzenellen Bogen By The Sea

The happy pair were married one Sunday afternoon
They left the church and ran away to spend their honeymoon

In a tiny house (In a tiny house)
By a tiny stream (By a tiny stream)
Where the lovely lass (Where the lovely lass)
Had a lovely dream (Had a lovely dream)
And the last I heard (And the last I heard)
They still live happily
In Gilly Gilly Ossenfeffer Katzenellen Bogen By The Sea
In Gilly Gilly Ossenfeffer Katzenellen Bogen By The Sea

So now you’ve heard the story of how it all begun
(I think I’d like to go there)
That’s a good idea, Son!

Sing it very soft (Sing it very soft)
Pianissimo (Pianissimo)
Like a little bird (Like a little bird)
Walking in the snow (Walking in the snow)
That was very nice (That was very nice)
Now sing it merrily
It’s Gilly Gilly Ossenfeffer Katzenellen Bogen By The Sea
Ssshhhhhhhh!
In Gilly Gilly Ossenfeffer Katzenellen Bogen By The Sea
