Adventures of Ichabod And Mr. Toad 


The Merrily Song
Ichabod
Katrina
The Headless Horseman


The Merrily Song
J. Thaddeus Toad & Cyril

Tally ho! tally ho! tally ho!
Are we on our way to Nottingham,
to Brittingham, to Buckingham?
Or any hammy hamlet by the sea?
No!

Cyril
Are we on our way
to Devonshire, to Lancashire
to Worcestershire
I'm not so sure
We'll have to wait and see

J. Thaddeus Toad
Oh, are we on our way to Dover
Or going merrily over
The jolly old road that goes
to Plymouth, ho, no

Both
We're merrily, merrily, merrily
merrily, merrily on our way
To nowhere in particular

We're merrily, merrily, merrily
merrily, merrily on our way
Where the roads are perpendicular

J. Thaddeus Toad
We're always in a hurry

Cyril
We have no time to stall

Both
We've got to be there
We've got to be there
But where we can't recall
Whoo!

We're merrily, merrily, merrily
merrily, merrily on our way
And we may be going to Devonshire
To Lancashire, to Worcestershire
We're not so sure
but what do we care
We're only sure
we've got to be there
We're merrily on our way
To nowhere at all



Ichabod
Bing Crosby & Chorus

Chorus
Who's that coming down the street?

Bing Crosby
Are they shovels or are they feet?

Chorus
Lean and lanky

Bing Crosby
Skin and bones
With clothes a scarecrow
would hate to own
Yet, he has a certain air

Chorus
Debonair and devil-may-care
It's the new schoolmaster
what's his name?

Bing Crosby
Ichabod, Ichabod Crane

Chorus
Ichabod, what a name

Bing Crosby
Kind of odd

Chorus
but nice just the same
Funny pan, funny frame

Ichabod

Bing Crosby
Ichabod Crane
Ichabod may be quaint
May be odd, and maybe he ain't
Anyway there's no complaint
From Ichabod, Ichabod Crane

And though the arrival
of the pedagogue
Gave rise to mixed emotions
The townspeople all agreed
They've never seen anyone

Together
Like Ichabod, Ichabod Crane

Bing Crosby
Who's the town's ladies' man?

Chorus
Gets around like nobody can?

Bing Crosby
Has to be none other than

Together
Ichabod, Ichabod Crane



Katrina
Bing Crosby

Oo-oo-oo-oo
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah

Once you have met
that little coquette
Katrina

You won't forget
Katrina
But nobody yet has ever upset
Katrina

That cute coquette 
Katrina
You can do more with
Margaret or 
Helena
Or Ann or Angelina

But Katrina will kiss and run
To her a romance is fun
With always another one to start
And yet when you've met that
little coquette
Katrina

You've lost your heart

Chorus
And yet when you've met that
little coquette
Katrina

Together
You've lost your heart



The Headless Horseman
Brom Bones

Brom Bones
When the spooks have a
midnight jamboree
They break it up with fiendish glee
Ghosts are bad
but the one that's cursed
Is the Headless Horseman
he's the worst

Chorus
That's right, he's a fright
on Halloween night

Brom Bones
But when he goes a joggin'
'cross the land
Holding his noggin in his hand
Demons take one look and groan
And hit the road for parts unknown

Chorus
Beware, take care, he rides alone

Brom Bones
And there's no spook
like a spook that's spurned

Chorus
They don't like him
and he's really burned

Brom Bones
He swears to the longest day he's dead

Together
He'll show them that he can get a head

Brom Bones
They say he's tired of his flamin' top
He's got a yen to make a swap
So he rides one night each year
To find a head in the hollow here

Chorus
Now he likes them little,
he likes them big
Part in the middle, or a wig
Black or white or even red

Brom Bones
The Headless Horseman needs a head

Together
With a hip, hip and a clippity-clop
He's out looking for a top to chop

Brom Bones
So don't stop to figure out a plan
You can't reason with a 

Together
headless man

Brom Bones
Now if you doubt this tale is so
I met that spook just a year ago
Now, I didn't stop for a second look
But made for the bridge that spans the brook
For once you've crossed that bridge, my friend

Chorus
The ghost is through, his power ends

Brom Bones
So when you're riding home tonight
Make for the bridge with all your might
He'll be down in the hollow there
He needs your head
Look out, beware

Together
With a hip, hip and a clippity-clop
He's out looking for a head to swap
So don't try to figure out a plan
You can't reason with a headless man
