Lyrics

My Bonnie has Tuberculosis
My Bonnie has one rotten lung
She spits up a bloody solution
and dries it and sells it for gum.

Dentyne, Dentyne, Dentyne's the gum
yum yum, yum yum.

Dentyne, Dentyne, Dentyne's the gum
yum yum!

Alternative Lyrics & Related Songs

This is the Gas Tank Version

My Bonnie looked into the Gas tank
The height of its contents to see.
She lit a small match to assist her,
Oh! Bring back my Bonnie to me!

Bring back, bring back,
Oh! Bring back my Bonnie to me, to me!

Bring back, bring back,
Oh! Bring back my Bonnie to me, to me!

This is the Stomach Version

My stomach is in a commotion,
My head's hanging over the rail;
I don't want to dirty the ocean,
So someone please bring me a pail!

CHORUS.

Come up, come up,
Oh come up, my dinner, come up, come up.

What about ring around the rosy, that's the black death, what about peter peter pumpkin eater, he killed his wife and put her in a pumpkin shell, (probably had to chop her up to make her fit.) Look at most fairy tales, wolf eating little girls, then an axeman split open the wolf, these were to condition children for real life, and the real trauma that happens in life, people are such wimps now-a-days.

This website should be cleaned of all of these inappropriate songs. I thought that for once I had found a friendly website.

Making fun of horror is childish in a healthy way. "Hail to the bus driver" is just a modification of "Oh du lieber Augustin", a song about the Pest. This cruel songs keep us sane.

"These are insensitive and inappropriate for children" Whether or not you agree with it, this is a song sung by children in many places. I'm sure you don't agree with "Great Big Gobs of Greasy, Grimy Gopher Guts" either, but that doesn't mean it doesn't exist. Sorry, pal, but these songs, though gross, are part of our culture.

I remember singing this one as a kid, except it went like this: "My Bonnie has Tuberculosis. My Bonnie has only one lung. She coughs up bloody congestion, and rolls it around on her tongue."

Thank you for helping to preserve this and other songs that are a vital part of our culture and our history. There was a time when these things were a part of everyday life (before the world was politically sanitized). These bits of culture remind us what it was like to live in the days of our great grandparents.

This song "My Bonnie has Tuberculosis' is innappropriate and insensitive for the many people suffering from cancer and have many of the same symptoms. Why would we want children singing this?? This is a children's site..or am I mistaken??
