Great green gobs of greasy grimy gopher guts...
Did you sing this song as a child? What version did you sing?→
For some reason this came up tonight--it turns out that both BOP & I sang this song (and sung it again quite happily tonight), but different versions. That got me to wondering: How many versions are there of the gopher guts song? Who grew up with which version? What regional variations are out there? Thus, I have turned childish silliness into serious adult-like discussion. No, really!
So here's the version I grew up with. All others, of course, are wrong ;) Sing along if you know the tune:
Great green gobs of greasy grimy gopher guts
Chopped up monkey meat
Disconnected birdie feet
All mushed up and put in a candy
Dollar forty-nine plus three cents tax
