from Cranberry Sauce Flotilla

Bling blang
By Woody Guthrie

Bling blang, hammer with my hammer
Zingo zango, cuttin’ with my saw

You get a hammer and I’ll get a nail
You catch a bird and I’ll catch a snail
You bring a board and I’ll bring a saw
We’ll build a house for baby oh


I’ll grab some mud and you grab some clay
So when it rains it won’t wash away
We’ll build a house, it’ll be so strong
The wind will sing my baby a song


You bring the ladder and I’ll get a box
We’ll build our house out of bricks and blocks
When the snowbird flies and the honey bird combs
We’ll feed our baby on the honey in the comb
