Does anyone out there recall this silly childrens variation on Polly Wolly Doodle?


fare thee well, fare thee well,
fare thee well my darling hair
I want a good shampoo
with some icky sticky goo
While sitting in the barber chair.

No, but I know the Allan Sherman version: Fare thee well/Metrecal/And the others of that ilk/Let the diet start tomorrow/For today I'll drown my sorrow/In a double malted milk.

Why do you ask?

I'd been recently asked if I could sing any of Polly Wolly Doodle. At the moment of the request, all I could recall was bits and pieces of this childrens song. Much to my suprise noone in the room had ever heard it, now I'm curious if anyone else in the world is familiar with it.

Oh, I went down south for to see my Sal
Sing polly wolly doodle all the day
Oh, my Sal she is a spunky girl
Sing polly wolly doodle all the day.

Chorus:
Fare thee well, fare thee well,
Fare thee well my fairy fay.
For I'm goin' to Lou'siana for to see my Susy-anna
Sing polly wolly doodle all the day.


Oh, my Sal she is a maiden fair
Sing polly wolly doodle all the day
With curly eyes and laughing hair
Sing polly wolly doodle all the day.

(Chorus)

I came to a river and couldn't get across
Sing polly wolly doodle all the day
I jumped on a gator and thought he was a hoss
Sing polly wolly doodle all the day.

(Chorus)

A grasshopper sitting on a railroad track
Sing Polly wolly doodle all the day
A picking his teeth with a carpet tack
Sing polly wolly doodle all the day.

(Chorus)
_______________________________________

The song was published in the 19'th Century, and there have been many variations and take-offs.

Oh I'll find them. Or remember them or both. I just thought someone in this community might make my search shorter. Guest; tell me who you are and I'll send the words your way. Some day.

I found this

Fare thee well
Fare thee well
Fare thee well my darlin' hair
I want a good shampoo with some icky, sticky goo
While sittin' in the barber chair!

My daddy don't need a haircut at all
While sittin' in the barber chair
Because he's as bald as a billard ball
And his hair just isn't there!

Polly Wolly Doodle
Whistling Willie

Oh, I went down South for to see my Sal
Sing Polly wolly doodle all the day
My Sal, she is a spunky gal
Sing Polly wolly doodle all the day

Fare thee well, fare thee well,
Fare thee well my fairy fay
For I'm going to Lou'siana for to see my Susyanna
Sing Polly wolly doodle all the day

Oh, my Sal, she is a maiden fair
Sing Polly wolly doodle all the day
With curly eyes and laughing hair
Sing Polly wolly doodle all the day

Fare thee well, fare thee well,
Fare thee well my fairy fay
For I'm going to Lou'siana for to see my Susyanna
Sing Polly wolly doodle all the day

Behind the barn, down on my knees
Sing Polly wolly doodle all the day
I thought I heard a chicken sneeze
Sing Polly wolly doodle all the day

Fare thee well, fare thee well,
Fare thee well my fairy fay
For I'm going to Lou'siana for to see my Susyanna
Sing Polly wolly doodle all the day

He sneezed so hard with the whooping cough
Sing Polly wolly doodle all the day
He sneezed his head and the tail right off
Sing Polly wolly doodle all the day

Fare thee well, fare thee well,
Fare thee well my fairy fay
For I'm going to Lou'siana for to see my Susyanna
Sing Polly wolly doodle all the day

Oh, a grasshopper sittin' on a railroad track
Sing Polly wolly doodle all the day
A-pickin' his teeth with a carpet tack
Sing Polly wolly doodle all the day

Fare thee well, fare thee well,
Fare thee well my fairy fay
For I'm going to Lou'siana for to see my Susyanna
Sing Polly wolly doodle all the day

Oh, I went to bed but it wasn't any use
Sing Polly wolly doodle all the day
My feet stuck out like a chicken roost
Sing Polly wolly doodle all the day

Fare thee well, fare thee well,
Fare thee well my fairy fay
For I'm going to Lou'siana for to see my Susyanna
Sing Polly wolly doodle all the day

From the thread title, I thought this was going to be a parody of "Fare Thee Well, My Dearest Dear," like:

Fare thee well, my dearest hair, fare thee well, adieu,
Since I have gone to seed and cannot accrue
A mass of curly locks, not even with Minox-
idil; a barren pate does now await.

Well, Every so often I find myself sitting in the barber chair
I;m getting a new cut, it might be a crew cut sitting in the barber chair.

Fare ye well, fare ye well,
fare ye well my darling hair
I want a good shampoo with some icky sticky goo
while sitting in the barber chair.

One verse goes.
Well if your hair is a very fast grower while sitting in the barber chair,
don't use any clippers, use a power lawn mower, dynamite isn't fair
