lyrics

Oh Susannah won't you come find me
I'm stranded just past that rocky peak
In a grove of trees
Wondering where I’m going to sleep

Like a pig in mud I was sitting tight
Wondering where I was gonna stay the night
So I grabbed the hair by my chinny chin chin
Made a house out of bricks

Well the big bad wolf came knocking still
Asking me nice if I had seen a girl
She’s been around for quite some time
She’s the last suspect in a long line
Let me tell you about little red
She was born by the river, baby’s parents were dead
Last seen by the railroad tracks
Dinah chased her down but only found a basket
Full of currants and sour cherries, bumble, black, and raspberries
She’s the big red hood and she’s planning a scheme
She’s the mastermind of illegal trafficking

I haven’t spied with my little eye
Anything that meets a description of that kind
May I ask what she’s transporting
She’s got the best damn pies in South Mountain

She’s faster than the gingerbread man
Jack’s not quite as nimble as
She can be when she’s jumping the moon
The cow’s been depressed and the dish and spoon
Ain’t never going to be like they used to

Have we lost our minds like the nursery rhymes
That we don’t sing anymore
