VERSE 1

        G 
Do your ears hang low?

  
Do they wobble to and fro?

Can you tie them in a knot?

        D7 
Can you tie them in a bow?

        G 
Can you throw them o'er your shoulder 

  
Like a regimental soldier?

             D7   G 
Do your ears hang low? 

  
VERSE 2

        G 
Do your ears stand high?

  
Do they reach up to the sky?

  
Do they droop when they are wet?

        D7 
Do they stiffen when they're dry?

        G 
Can you summon o'er your neighbor 

  
With a minimum of labor?

             D7    G 
Do your ears stand high? 

  
VERSE 3

        G 
Do your ears flip-flop?

  
Can you use them as a mop?

  
Are they stringy at the bottom?

         D7 
Are they curly at the top?

        G 
Can you use them for a swatter?

  
Can you use them for a blotter?

             D7   G 
Do your ears flip-flop? 

  
VERSE 4

        G 
Do your ears stick out?

  
Can you wiggle them about?

  
Can you flap them up and down 

       D7 
As you fly around the town?

        G 
Can you shut them up for sure 

  
When you hear an awful bore?

             D7    G 
Do your ears stick out?
