Oh Dear!

Song Video

Lyrics

Oh, dear, what can the matter be?
Dear, dear, what can the matter be?
Oh, dear, what can the matter be?
Johnny's so long at the fair.
He promised to buy me a bunch of blue ribbons;
He promised to buy me some bonny blue ribbons;
He promised to buy me a bunch of blue ribbons,
To bind up my bonny brown hair.

And it's, oh! Dear! What can the matter be?
Dear, dear, what can the matter be?
Oh, dear, what can the matter be?
Johnny's so long at the fair.

Dear, dear! what can the matter be?
Two old women got up in an apple-tree;
One came down, and the other stayed till Saturday.

This is a longer version of the song

Chorus
Oh dear! What can the matter be?
Dear, dear! What can the matter be?
Oh, dear! What can the matter be?
Johnny’s so long at the fair

He promised to buy me a bunch of blue ribbons
He promised to buy me a bunch of blue ribbons
He promised to buy me a bunch of blue ribbons
To tie up my bonnie brown hair

Chorus
Oh dear! What can the matter be?
Dear, dear! What can the matter be?
Oh, dear! What can the matter be?
Johnny’s so long at the fair

He promised to buy me a bunch of red flowers
He promised to buy me a bunch of red flowers
He promised to buy me a bunch of red flowers
To show me how much he does care

Chorus
Oh dear! What can the matter be?
Dear, dear! What can the matter be?
Oh, dear! What can the matter be?
Johnny’s so long at the fair

He promised to buy me a nice candy apple
He promised to buy me a nice candy apple
He promised to buy me a nice candy apple
With me, I know Johnny will share

Chorus
Oh dear! What can the matter be?
Dear, dear! What can the matter be?
Oh, dear! What can the matter be?
Johnny’s so long at the fair

Can get to MassMirror okay, but the d/l speeds are minmial. I'm experiencing massively reduced d/l speeds with all sites though.I'm not sure what you're talking about. You're not downloading the file from Mass Mirror, you're downloading it from one of the hosts, such as Rapidshare, Megaupload, Badango, etc.So if the actual file downloading is slow, it's one of those; not Mass Mirror. Or maybe your computer is not configured to download optimally.Jeff

My grandson loves this song. He is five months old and everytime he starts crying or is upset I sing this song and he calms down!
