Just in time for Halloween, here's a little ditty that most of us sang on long elementary school bus trips. But the Harp Twins know a lot more of the verses than we did back in the day.

 

 

The song itself dates back to before World War I and the twins, Camille and Kennerly, spent a great deal of time and effort talking to people and tracking down lost verses. It seems the song is like a lot of old children's songs with no set lyrics, just several phrases and words that recur in everyone's version.
