I Have Lost my Underwear

I have lost my underwear,
I don't care, I'll go bare,
Bye, bye longjohns.
They were very dear to me,
Tickled me, hee, hee, hee.
Bye, bye, longjohns.
If you see that little trap door behind me,
You will always know where you can find me.
Make my bed and light the light,
I'll be home late tonight,
Long johns, bye bye.

Information About I Have Lost my Underwear

The exact origins of this amusing song are actually unknown, although the melody itself comes from the popular standard "Bye, Bye Blackbird" which was written and published in 1926 by composer Ray Henderson and lyricist Mort Dixon, two American songwriters.

This version was probably penned by an American sometime during the mid-20th century, considering that's when wearing long johns (which is simply another name for long underwear) was the norm, especially at night.

It appears as though whoever wrote these wacky words may have done so because they actually did lose their underwear. After all, that's what the song is about!

In fact, this song is sometimes known by various names and there are other versions with slightly different lyrics, yet they still usually stick with the same underwear or long john theme.

This is typically one of those silly songs that children might like to sing for laughs at nighttime just before going to bed, but it has also been sung around many a campfire as well.

This song has been printed from the BusSongs.com website.
