Three Little Billy Goats Gruff
words and music by Roland Hess

chorus:
There were three little Billy goats gruff.
Two were smart and one was really tough.
There were three little Billy goats gruff.
Two were smart and one was really tough.

The first Billy Goat went to the bridge.
He went trippa-troppa-trippa-troppa-trip,
But then he stopped
Because he saw a troll
And the troll said...

"You look mighty tasty, little Billy goat,
And I'm hungry.
So I'm gonna eat you
All
Up!"

But that Billy goat was really smart,
He said "Come on Trolly,"
Don't you have a heart?
I'm very small. I'd be tough to chew.
I wouldn't even make a whole meal for you.
And besides, my brother's coming down the lane,
And if he sees you eating me, he'll run off
And you won't get to eat him!"

And so the troll let him go.

Chorus

The second Billy Goat came to the bridge.
He went trippa-troppa-trippa-troppa-trip,
But then he stopped
Because he saw the troll
And the troll said...

"I'm really hungry now, Billy goat,
and I didn't eat you brother.
You look so tasty that I'm
Going to eat you
All
Up!"

But that Billy goat was really smart,
He said "Come on Trolly,"
Don't you have a heart?
I'm just middle sized. I'd be tough to chew.
I wouldn't even make a whole meal for you.
And besides, my brother's coming down the lane,
And if he sees you eating me, he'll run off
And you won't get to eat him!"

And so the troll let him go.

Chorus

The third Billy Goat went to the bridge.
He went trippa-troppa-trippa-troppa-trip,
But then he stopped
Because he saw the troll
And the troll said...

"I've had enough of you Billy goats
Trippin and troppin over my bridge!
And I'm still hungry!
I'm eating you right now!

And the tough Billy goat said "Oh yeah?
You just try it!"
And the troll ran at the Billy goat
And Billy goat ran at the troll!
And the troll ran faster!
And the Billy goat lowered his head and...
WHAMO!
The troll went flying into sky and
landed on the dark side of the moon.
And he was never seen again.

There were three little Billy goats gruff.
Two were smart and one was really tough.
There were three little Billy goats gruff.
Two were smart and one was really tough.
