Yertle the Turtle Lyrics

On a far away island
Of salamasond
Yertle the turtle
Was king of the pond
A nice little pond
It was clean it was neat
The water was warm
There was plenty to eat
Until one day
The king of them all
Decided the kingdom
He ruled was too small
Im a ruler of all that I see
But I dont see enough
And thats 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
Lifted his hand
He ordered all the turtles
Onto one anothers back
He piled them high
Into a ten turtle stack
Im yertle the turtle
The things I now rule
Im king of a cow
Im 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
Ive 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
Im yertle the turtle
Oh marvelous me for
I am ruler of all that I see
Yertle, yertle the turtle...
Yertle, yertle the turtle...
