"Alpine Song"

    Sounds are made for each interruption of the yodeler's cry.
Each sound is added to the preceding refrain.
 
  1. Oh, an Austrian went yodeling on a mountain so high.
When along came an avalanche, interrupting his cry.
 
    Refrain:
 
    Yo-lay-dee, yodelayheehee, Oh yodelayheehoo.
(shh-shh)
Yodelayheehee, Oh yodelayheehoo.
(shh-shh)
Yodelayheehee, Oh yodelayheehoo.
(shh-shh)
Yodelayheehee Ohlay.
 
 
2.
Oh, an Austrian went yodeling on a mountain so high.
When along came a Saint Bernard, interrupting his cry.
 
    Refrain:  
    Yo-lay-dee, yodelayheehee, Oh yodelayheehoo.
(pant-pant, shh-shh)
Yodelayheehee, Oh yodelayheehoo.
(pant-pant, shh-shh)
Yodelayheehee, Oh yodelayheehoo.
(pant-pant, shh-shh)
Yodelayheehee Ohlay.
 
  3. Oh, an Austrian went yodeling on a mountain so high.
When along came a Guernsey cow, interrupting his cry.
 
    Refrain:  
    Yo-lay-dee, yodelayheehee, Oh yodelayheehoo.
(moo-moo, pant-pant, shh-shh)
Yodelayheehee, Oh yodelayheehoo.
(moo-moo, pant-pant, shh-shh)
Yodelayheehee, Oh yodelayheehoo.
(moo-moo, pant-pant, shh-shh)
Yodelayheehee Ohlay.
 
  4. Oh, an Austrian went yodeling on a mountain so high.
When along came a Martian, interrupting his cry.

    Yo-lay-dee, yodelayheehee, Oh yodelayheehoo.
(beep-beep, moo-moo, pant-pant, shh-shh)
Yodelayheehee, Oh yodelayheehoo.
(beep-beep, moo-moo, pant-pant, shh-shh)
Yodelayheehee, Oh yodelayheehoo.
(beep-beep, moo-moo, pant-pant, shh-shh)
Yodelayheehee Ohlay.
