“Squirrel Ran Up My Leg”

© 2009 Eve & Mare


Camping on the edge of Apple Creek

Scampered up a tree to find a view

What a circumstance, there were squirrels on every branch

I winked hello and said well howdy-do


The squirrels and I became fast furry friends

I named them Bobber, Skip and Little Rex

I headed down the tree and Bobber followed me

And friend you won’t believe what happened next


That squirrel ran up my leg and I did a crazy jig

So fast so scared he went flying through the air

And he didn’t look back cause he didn’t even care

Cause I was more scared of him than he was of me oh

I was more scared of him that he was of me


I pitched a fit and yelled for Mom and Dad

They asked what in the world got in to me

I trembled and I shook, and I explained that he mistook

Oh that squirrel mistook my pants leg for a tree


That squirrel ran up my leg and I did a crazy jig

So fast so scared he went flying through the air

And he didn’t look back cause he didn’t even care

He zipped through the sky like a brown furry flair

Cause I was more scared of him than he was of me oh

I was more scared of him that he was of me


(squirrel solo)


Here’s the morsel of this big ol’ bushy tale

If you ever catch a squirrel sniffing your toe

You’d better back away or there’ll be a price to pay

Just take a hint from me I ought to know


That squirrel ran up my leg and I did a crazy jig

So fast so scared he went flying through the air

And he didn’t look back cause he didn’t even care

He zipped through the sky like a brown furry flair

All campers on the ground beware

Cause I was more scared of him

I was more scared of him

I was more scared of him than he was of me oh

I was more scared of him than he was of me
