On Top Of Spaghetti

E                     A                                    E    B7  E
On top of spaghetti, all covered with cheese,
                        B7                                        E   A    E
I lost my poor meatball, when somebody sneezed.

E                       A                               E    B7  E
It rolled off the table, and on to the floor,
                              B7                                        E   A    E
And then my poor meatball, rolled out of the door.

E                       A                                E    B7  E
It rolled in the garden, and under a bush,
                               B7                                     E   A    E
And then my poor meatball, was nothing but mush.

E                            A                               E    B7  E
The mush was as tasty, as tasty could be,
                              B7                                  E   A    E
And then the next summer, it grew into a tree.

E                          A                                         E    B7  E
The tree was all covered, all covered with moss,
                          B7                                 E   A    E
And on it grew meatballs with tomato sauce.

E                     A                                          E    B7  E
So if you eat spaghetti, all covered with cheese,
                           B7                                             E   A    E
Hold on to your meatballs, and don't ever you sneeze
