John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt

There was a funny little man who had a funny name
And he was very proud of it 'cause no-one else's was the same
And then one day he left his town to strike out on his own
And met a total stranger a thousand miles from home,
Who said:

John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt
His name is my name, too!
Whenever we go out,
The people always shout
There goes John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt!
Da da da da da da da

He took up mountain climbing to scale his way to fame
If he were first to reach the top then all would know his name
Then finally he reached the top, and sat right down and cried
For someone else had beat him, who climbed the other side.
He said:

John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt
His name is my name, too!
Whenever we go out,
The people always shout
There goes John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt!
Da da da da da da da

He took an ocean voyage to forget his cares a while
The ship was sunk and he was stranded on a desert isle
He never saw another soul for many years or more
Until he met a native a-walkin' on the shore,
Who said:

John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt
His name is my name, too!
Whenever we go out,
The people always shout
There goes John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt!
Da da da da da da da

When he got very old and knew the end was coming soon
He built himself a rocket ship and took off for the moon
He landed in a great big hole, and when he stepped outside
A thousand funny little men ran up to him and cried:

John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt
His name is my name, too!
Whenever we go out,
The people always shout
There goes John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt!
Da da da da da da da

(Repeat verse again, more quietly,
but shout loudly on the "There goes John..." line)
