Princess Pat


Now Princess Pat
(Now Princess Pat)
Lived in a tree
(Lived in a tree)
She sailed across
(She sailed across)
The seven seas
(The seven seas)
She sailed across
(She sailed across)
The channel too
(The channel too)
And she brought with her
(And she brought with her)
A riggabamboo
(A riggabamboo).

A riggabamboo
(A riggabamboo)
Now what is that
(Now what is that)
It's a-somethin' made
(It's a-somethin' made)
By the Princess Pat
(By the Princess Pat)
It's red and gold
(It's red and gold)
And a-purple too
(And a-purple too)
That's why it's called
(That's why it's called)
A riggabamboo.

Now Captain Jack
Had a mighty fine crew
He sailed across
The channel too
His ship did sink
And so will you
If you don't bring
A riggabamboo.

The original 2nd line is "light infantry" which has evolved into "lived in a tree."

I love this song! I sing it to the girl scouts I'm in charge of all the time. They love it because we do motions. It's a great song to get kids to loosen up and be involved.
