Old Doctor Wango Tango

This song is by Burl Ives and appears on the album Capt. Burl Ives' Ark (1958).

Old Doctor Wango Tango, had a long red nose
Oh, Old Doctor Wango Tango always wore green clothes
And Old Doctor Wango Tango lived by himself all alone
When he went out to ride, he sat astride
Of a steed all skin and bone, bone, bone
Of a steed all skin and bone

Old Doctor Wango Tango had a dog and a cat also
Old Doctor Wango Tango had a tamed black crow
And Old Doctor Wango Tango called his thin horse, Sam
His dog's name was Towser, and his cat's name was Mouser
And the crow's name was Flippity Flam, Flam, Flam
And the crow's name was Flippity Flam

Old Doctor Wango Tango, lived on a biscuit a day
Old Doctor Wango Tango got very light this way
And Old Doctor Wango Tango, gave his animals nothing to eat
Though it sometimes came to pass, that they found a little grass
Or a crust or a bone without meat meat meat
Or a crust or a bone without meat

Old Doctor Wango Tango, rode to the top of a hill
And Old Doctor Wango Tango found the wind very high and chill
Away blew Old Doctor Tango
Away blew his thin horse Sam
Away blew Towser, and away blew Mouser
And the black crow Flippity Flam Flam Flam
And the black crow Flippity Flam
