An old Austrian went yodelling, on a mountain top high,
when along came a ______________,
interrupting his cry.
This song is sung my replacing the blank (________) with something the Austrian meets each time it is sung, and also adding a sound in the place of (sounds) each time it is repeated. You end up changing the thing the Austrian meets every time you repeat, but the sounds get added onto the one before. For example, the first time you sing, the Austrian meets a Coocoo bird, and you make the sound coo-coo coo-coo. The second time round, the Austrian meets a dog, and you make the sounds coo-coo coo-coo, AND ha-ha (panting). This song can be repeated as many times as needed.
The Things the Austrian Meets - (and the sounds)
Coocoo bird - (coo-coo coo-coo)
St. Bernard - (ha ha *panting*)
Avalanche - (swoosh)
Grizzly Bear - (Grrrr)
Milking Cow - (Mooooooo!)
Pretty Girl - (*kissing sounds*)
Angry Dad - (BANG BANG *pistol shots*)
Skydiver - (Ahhhhh!!!)
Girl Guide - (Cooooooookies?)
When we sing this song, we like to end with "An anti-yodeller" who says "Be quiet!" and covers his ears, ending the song there.
