Joy to the World
by Three Dog Night

Jeremiah was a bullfrog
Was a good friend of mine
I never understood a single word he said
But I helped him a-drink his wine
And he always had some mighty fine wine

Singin' joy to the world
All the boys and girls now
Joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea
Joy to you and me

And if I were the king of the world
Tell you what I'd do
I'd throw away the cars and the bars and the war
Make sweet love to you

Sing it now, joy to the world
All the boys and girls
Joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea
Joy to you and me

You know I love the ladies
Love to have my fun
I'm a high life flyer and a rainbow rider
A straight shootin' son-of-a-gun
I said a straight shootin' son-of-a-gun

Joy to the world
All the boys and girls
Joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea
Joy to you and me

Joy to the world
All the boys and girls
Joy to the world
Joy to you and me

Joy to the world
All the boys and girls
Joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea
Joy to you and me

Joy to the world
Joy to you and me
Joy to the world
All the boys and girls now
Joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea
Joy to you and me

Joy to the world
All the boys and girls
Joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea
Joy to you and me

Joy to the world
All the boys and girls

My family has some history with this song that goes like this. When I was stationed at the Naval Base Charleston, SC my oldest son was enrolled in a Christian daycare center. He was 4-5 years old. The director was a very severe gray Baptist lady, hair in a bun, dresses to her ankles and never any makeup. Christmas show 1973. All the kids sitting on the stage. The director announced that the kids would start with Joy To The World. She turned to the kids asked do you all know this song. My son jumped up with an I do Miss Cooper. Well alright Pete you will start us. Soo 1, 2, 3 and in his sweet little boy loud voice out came Jeremiah Was A Bullfrog. Miss Cooper almost fainted, the parents roared, we were all young Navy families, and the show finished that quickly. Pete is 50 now we are in our 70s and this event is a story told every Christmas time.

"I said a straight shooting son of a gun" - points his little finger at the director while winking

Omfg. I was so scared it was gonna turn out sad when you used the past tense to describe him. Love me a heartwarming story though, so thanks for that, sir. I think these stressful times could use a few more uplifting stuff like this.

I guess you could say that young Pete brought the house down!
