1 Naughty Willie .} Johnnie has a little wig Its hair is white as snow And every place the wild winds went The wig was sure to go. 2 Wanda} PapaΓÇÖs got a little wig It makes a funny view And when the winds go off to play The little wig goes too. 3 Miss Blaesdal} O let it go and never mind Just take one off your dolly And fix it with a safety pin And then wonΓÇÖt that be jolly. 4 Helen} Now please good winds donΓÇÖt blow so hard Be gentle if you please For when that little thing blows off It makes poor papa sneeze. 5 Louie} O dear O dear I feel so queer How fast the time must go. This makes me feel that sad old song John Anderson my Joe.
