Lyrics

On a far away island
Of salamasond I said a
Yertle the turtle
Was king of the pond
A nice little pond
It was clean it was neat
The water was warm
There was a plant to eat
Until one day
The king of them all
Decided the kingdom
He ruled was too small
I'm a ruler of all that I see
But I don't see enough
And that's the trouble with me

With this stone for a throne
I am too low down
I cannot look down
Upon the places beyond
So yertle the turtle king
Lifted his hand
And yertle the turtle king
Gave a command
He ordered all the turtles
Onto one another's back
He piled them high
Into a ten turtle stack
I'm yertle the turtle
The things I now rule
I'm king of a cow
I'm king of a mule

Then down from below
In the great turtle stack
Came a burp from a plain
Little turtle named mack
Just part of the throne
This burpin' little turtle
Looked up and said "i beg
Your pardon king yertle"
I've pains in my back
My shoulders and my knees
How long must we stand
Here your majesty
"Silence !" the king of the
Turtles barked back
To the bad burpin'
Little turtle named mack
I'm yertle the turtle
Oh marvelous me for
I am ruler of all that I see

Yertle, yertle the turtle..
Yertle, yertle the turtle..
