There’s a hole in the ground

This would be a useful one for car journeys with older children- the number of verses is limited only by your memory.

There was a hole (there was a hole)
In the middle of the ground (in the middle of the ground)
The prettiest hole (the prettiest hole)
That you ever did see (that you ever did see)
And the green grass grows all around all around
And the green grass grows all around

And in this hole (and in this hole)
There was a tree (there was a tree)
The prettiest tree (the prettiest tree)
That you ever did see (that you ever did see)
And the tree in the hole
And the hole in the ground
And the green grass grows all around all around
And the green grass grows all around

And on this tree (and on this tree)
There was a branch (there was a branch)
The prettiest branch (the prettiest branch)
That you ever did see (that you ever did see)
And the branch on the tree
And the tree in the hole
And the hole in the ground
And the green grass grows all around all around
And the green grass grows all around

About Daily Rhymetime

I am fascinated by children's songs, old and new, from around the world. I run Rhymetime, and am part of Tuning In, and have three children who humour me by listening to all the wonderful tunes I uncover!
