Legend has it that this song was sung by the British forces at the final
surrender of the Revolutionary War.
If Buttercups buzzed after the bee,
If boats were on land; fishes on sea,
If ponies rode men and if grass ate the cows,
And cats should be chased into holes by the mouse,
If the mommies sold their babies to the gypsies for half a crown,
If summer were spring and the other way 'round:
Then the whole world would be upside down.
Jim Hancock guitar, vocals
Jim Lillquist hammered dulcimer
Joyce Lillquist autoharp
As performed on the recording:
World Turned Upside Down
