I do! My Dad sang a lot of silly songs.

He also used to sing, in a strage nasal falsetto:

They're gonna put me in the movies
They're gonna make a big star out of me
We'll make a film about a man that's sad and lonely
And all I have to do is act naturally

Quoting tway

I do! My Dad sang a lot of silly songs.

I still have the "On Top Of Spaghetti and More Songs Children Love To Sing" album by Tom Glazer and the Do-Re-Mi- Children's Chorus. (Tom Glazer also played with Woody Gutherie, Leadbelly and a few other famous folkies.)

Did your dad ever sing "Dance With The Dolly With The Hole In Her Stocking"?

Or this:
Be kind to your web-footed friends
'Cause (for) a duck may be somebody's mother.
Be kind to your friends in the swamp
Where the water (weather) is very damp.
Be nice to the camel in the zoo
for his hump may be hi - i - ding your brother.
Be good to the tiger and the monk
and we will let you smell our favorite pet sku - unk.

Nope - never heard of that one.

He did sing "There was a little girl and she had a little curl" and the old "Clap hands, clap hands till daddy comes home" - where he'd make you clap yourself upside the face.

Does anyone remember this camp song:

Flea!
Flea Fly!
Flea Fly Flo!
Vista
Coo-ma-la, Coo-ma-la, Coo-ma-la Vista
Oh no-no, no, not the vista
Eenie, meenie, decimeenie, oo walla walla meenie!
Ex a meenie, zoll a meenie, oo walla wall!
Beep billy ott in dotten oh bo ba beaten dotten...

(That's off the Internet, but I remmeber the last line going "big baddy oos, caboos, caWINda! Not that any of it makes sense).

I remember a last line after:

Beep billy ott in dotten oh bo ba beaten botten
wad dot and wow

though some sang it: wad dot and how

I think your dad and my mom were related...

I remember "On top of spaghetti"! :)
and Snoopy and the Red Baron, Does your chewing gum lose its flavor?, Mr. Custer, and Beep Beep....I can't remember what they were all on, but it must have been an 8-track ;)

Tra la la boom di-ay
There was no school today.
Our teacher passed away,
She died of tooth decay!
We threw her in the Bay,
She scared the fish away!
And when we pulled her out,
She smelled like sauerkraut!

Hahaha, you reminded me of this one (sung to "joy to the world"
Joy to the world!
The school burned down.
And all the teachers–dead!
They’re looking for the principal…
He’s hanging by the flag pole
With a rope around his neck
With a rope around his neck
With a rope a rope around his neck.

On top of old Smokey,
all covered in sand,
I shot my poor teacher,
with a big rubber band.

I went to her funeral,
I went to her grave,
Some people threw flowers,
I through a grenade.

I opened her coffin,
She was only half dead,
so I took a bazooka,
And I blew off her head.

(I think that's how it went)

Something tells me that songs about school and teachers are universal. We sang all of those with our own adaptations thrown in just for fun.

Now, who knows "Bang Away on Lola"???
