Gubben og gamla lå og dro

Gubben og gamla lå og dro,
og ikke fikk opp rota.
Men hadde vi hatt han Enball her,
så hadde vi fått opp rota.
Og Enball kom, og Enball dro,
og Enball og gubben og gamla lå og dro,
men ikke fikk opp rota.
 
Gubben og gamla lå og dro,
og ikke fikk opp rota.
Men hadde vi hatt han Toball her, osv.
 
Slik fortsetter vi til Tolvball:
 
Gubben og gamla lå og dro,
og ikke fikk opp rota.
Men hadde vi hatt han Tolvball her,
så hadde vi fått opp rota.
Og Tolvball kom, og Tolvball dro,
og Tolvball og Elleveball og Tiball og Niball
og Åtteball og Sjuball og Seksball og Femball
og Fireball og Treball og Toball
og Enball og gubben og gamla lå og dro,
og SÅ fikk de opp rota.

The geezer and the old broad (was pulling a root)

The geezer and the old broad was pulling on a root
But the tree root was too hard stuck
"But if we had Oneball here
Then the root will loosen.
And Oneball came, to help them to pull,
So, Oneball and the geezer and the old broad pulled, but the tree root was too hard stuck.
 
The geezer and the old broad was pulling on a root
But the tree root was too hard stuck
"But if we had Twoball here
Then the root will loosen.
And Twoball came, to help them to pull,
So, Twoball and Oneball and the geezer and the old broad pulled,
but the tree root was too hard stuck.
 
The geezer and the old broad was pulling on a root
But the tree root was too hard stuck
"But if we had Threeball here
Then the root will loosen.
And Threeball came, to help them to pull,
So, Threeball and Twoball and Oneball and the geezer and the old broad pulled,
but the tree root was too hard stuck.
 
The geezer and the old broad was pulling on a root
But the tree root was too hard stuck
"But if we had Fourball here
Then the root will loosen.
And Fourball came, to help them to pull,
So, Fourball and Threeball and Twoball and Oneball and the geezer and the old broad pulled,
but the tree root was too hard stuck.
 
The geezer and the old broad was pulling on a root
But the tree root was too hard stuck
"But if we had Fiveball here
Then the root will loosen.
And Fiveball came, to help them to pull,
So, Fiveball and Fourball and Threeball and Twoball and Oneball and the geezer and the old broad pulled,
but the tree root was too hard stuck
 
Now just continue with increasing numberballs arriving, and more numberballs to pull together with the geezer and the old broad.

Commentaires de l’auteur·e :

This is a cumulative counting song, adding verse after verse.
It traditionionally ends after Twelveball helped to pull, when they actually manage to extract the tree root from the ground.
To hear the melody, search for "Gubben og gamla lå og dro", or "Gubben og gamla låg og dro" on youtube.
