"Walk Along, John"

           
    1.

Come on, boys, and hush your talking,
All join hands and let's go walking.
Walk along, John, with your paper collar on,
Walk along, John, with your paper collar on.

   
   
2.
Come on, boys, and stop your squawking,
All join hands and let's go walking.
Walk along, John, with no shoes on,
Walk along, John, with no shoes on.
