lyrics

Walking 'round town
Walking down my street
Right here on the ground
Lying at my feet
I found a stick
(It's a stick, it's a stick)
I found a plain old stick
(Just a dumb ol' stick)
Well, I picked it up with my hands
Ain't nobody gonna tell me I can't:
It's just a stick

Branch was growing
Nice and strong
Ain't nobody knowing
Why the branch fell off
Now it's a stick
(It's a stick, it's a stick)
The former branch is a stick
(Just a dumb ol' stick)
Take as many of them as you please
As a matter of fact they DO grow on trees!
It's just a stick.
All right!

Put on your hiking boots
Pull up your socks
Get yourself a stick
And go on out for a walk
With a stick
(It's a stick, it's a stick)
With a walking stick
(Just a dumb ol' stick)
I myself could never understand
Why is it easier to walk with a stick in your hand?
It's just a stick

Put it in the water
See if it'll float
Pretending all you wanna
That it is a boat
But it's a stick
(It's a stick, it's a stick)
It's just a floating stick
(Just a dumb ol' stick)
Watch it sail away until it's gone
There's like a zillion more where that came from
It's just a stick

Throw it in the air
See if you can catch it
Toss it to the dog
see if she will fetch it
It's a stick
(it's a stick, it's a stick)
It's a fetching stick
(Just a dumb ol' stick)
Well, that's the end of this here old song
It's already gone on for way too long!
It's just a stick

Oooh, what's brown and sticky?
A brown stick!
