Once an Austrian went yodeling

Once an Austrian went yodeling on a mountain so high,
When he met with an avalanche,
Interrupting his cry.

Ho-li-ah, ho-le-rah-hi-hi-ah
Ho-le-rah cuckoo (“rumble, rumble”),
Ho-le-rah-hi-hi-ah
Ho-le-rah cuckoo (“rumble, rumble”),
Ho-le-rah-hi-hi-ah
Ho-le-rah cuckoo (“rumble, rumble”),
Ho-le-rah-hi-hi-ah-ho.

Once an Austrian went yodeling
On a mountin so high,
When he met with a skier
Interrupting his cry.

Chorus:
Ho-li-ah
Ho-le-rah-hi-hi-ah Ho-le-rah-cuckoo (3x)
(swoosh, rumble, rumble)
Ho-le-rah-hi-hia-ah-ho

Once an Austrian went yodeling
On a mountain so high,
When he met with a St. Bernard
Interrupting his cry.

On a mountain so high,
When he met with a Grizzly bear
Interrupting his cry

On a mountain so high,
When he met with a milking maid
Interrupting his cry.

On a mountain so high,
When he met with a pretty girl
Interrupting his cry.

Motions:

Ho-li-ah – rapidly slap knees
Ho-le-rah-hi-hi-ah – slap knees, clap hands, snap fingers (continue throughout chorus)
