Refrain:
Oh, the bossy-bossy r
Always gets his way.
Yes, the bossy-bossy r
Always has his say.
And you can wish upon a star,
But you won’t get far
If you ignore the bossy r.
3. You got the bossy-bossy r
In cork and fork.
You got the bossy-bossy r
In corn and born.
And you can set out in the morn,
But you won’t get far
If you ignore the bossy r.

1. You got the bossy-bossy r
In burn and turn.
You got the bossy-bossy r
In sir and her.
And you can set up quite a stir,
But you won’t get far
If you ignore the bossy r.
4. You got the bossy-bossy r
In bear and care.
You got the bossy-bossy r
In dare and share.
And you can go ‘most anywhere,
But you won’t get far
If you ignore the bossy r.

2. You got the bossy-bossy r
In barn,and yarn.
You got the bossy-bossy r
In harm and farm.
And you can sound out the alarm,
But you won’t get far
If you ignore the bossy r.
Refrain:
Oh, the bossy-bossy r
Always gets his way.
Yes, the bossy-bossy r
Always has his say.
And you can wish upon a star,
But you won’t get far
If you ignore the bossy r.
