The Joo-Jah Tree-1938
  Regal Zonophone MR2735Box/Cox/Roberts/Butler

Somewhere out in Joo Jar land in a forest fine and grand
Miles and miles above the sea stands the mighty Joo Jar tree

The Joo Jar tree The Joo Jar tree, the finest tree that you ever did see
Last July it grew so high, it poked a hole through the bright blue sky
Sailors say when they're down that way, from two till half past three

On it's branches big and strong, prehistoric animals are shuffling along
And they keep on shuffling, shuffling, shuffling up the Joo Jar tree

Its trunk's the most gigantic size you just can't believe your eyes
Little doggies whoop with glee when they see the Joo Jar tree

The Joo Jar tree, The Joo Jar tree, the finest tree that you ever did see
Last July it grew so high, it poked a hole through the bright blue sky
Sailors say when they're down that way, from two till half past three

You'll see Tarzan of the Apes, with a big banana and a lovely bunch of grapes
And he keeps on climbing, climbing, climbing up the Joo Jar tree

A nice pink elephant you will see shouting, "I'm a fairy" as he flits from tree to tree
And he keeps on flitting, flitting, flitting up the Joo Jar tree

The big baboon with purple patch, is yelling to his lady love who won't come up to scratch
And he keeps on yelling, scratching, yelling up the Joo Jar tree

Joo Jar maidens young and fair, only wear a necklace to protect them from the air
And they keep on shivering, shivering, shivering up the Joo Jar tree

You'll see things that don't seem true
If you don't believe 'em well you know what you can do
You can keep on climbing, climbing, climbing up the Joo Jar tree

Oh the Joo Jar tree The Joo Jar tree, the finest tree that you ever did see
Last July it grew so high, it poked a hole through the bright blue sky
Sailors say when they're down that way, from two till half past three

Beneath that tree don't dare to stop
Pennies down from heaven isn't what the birdies drop
You must keep on moving, moving, moving from under the Joo Jar tree
