Lyrics

As I was walking down the street,
down the street, down the street.
A little friend I chanced to meet.
High ho, high ho, high ho.

Chorus: A riggedy jig and away we go,
away we go, away we go.
A riggedy jig and away we go.
High ho, high ho, high ho.

As I was strolling down the street,
down the street, down the street,
A little friend I chanced to meet,
High ho, high ho, high ho.

Chorus: A riggedy jig and away we go,
away we go, away we go.
A riggedy jig and away we go.
High ho, high ho, high ho.

As I was riding down the street,
down the street, down the street.
A little friend I chanced to meet.
High ho, high ho, high ho.

Chorus: A riggedy jig and away we go,
away we go, away we go.
A riggedy jig and away we go.
High ho, high ho, high ho.
